As soon as I saw this song, I knew this thread had to happen.

Nile - "Papyrus Containing the Spell to Preserve Its Possessor Against Attacks from He Who Is In the Water"

    I'm surprised that Bal-Sagoth titles haven't be dredged up yet, or Anal **** titles.

    That said, overlong titles and silly, offensive ones aren't 'cool' to me, here are some titles I feel are cool;

    Scout Niblett, **** Treasure Island - Ok, so it's slightly offensive, but I found the disavowal of the classic children's tale and by it, the very idea of adventure, very appealing.

    Bob Dylan, Desolation Row - A reference to various works of literature, it's strange how much weight these two words carry, almost as much as the wild, shamanic rendering of pop culture and American history we get in the song's lyrics.

    Bjork, All is Full of Love - The very title elates me, makes me feel at one with the world. It conjures an idea of closeness and intimacy, but at the same time, a very public, shared experience. I like this.

    Good to see that you're not taking this too seriously or anything. :rolleyes:

    Perhaps 'Wacky Song Titles' or 'Fun Song Titles' would've been better names for this thread....

    Jesus Christ Pose. Works especially well when you actually here it in the song.

    That made me think of:

    Nirvana - "Jesus Doesn't Want Me For A Sunbeam"

    Hmm I was particularly fond of the title "Sick Hipster Nursed By Suicide Girl" But that was added bonus for the current state of my relationship at the time I found it for irony.

    I also found "A Minor Place" to be a playfully witty name given the disk and contents.

    My favorite quirky title's already been brought up elsewhere in here.

    Some others I enjoy as attention getters were "The Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth" "In Case We Die (pts 1-4)" "I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone" and "Tell Me Does She Love the Bass" just off the top of my head.

    Really? Wow, when I heard it on "MTV Live..." it sounded like a Nirvana song....

    Though I guess any song Kurt Cobain sings sounds like a Nirvana song. :p

    If I remember correctly, Kurt actually introduced it as a song written by the Vaselines.

    yep.
    nirvana famously covered the song during their unplugged performance, though i'm pretty sure i remember seeing the song on a few live bootleg recordings as well.

    they also covered "molly's lips" and "son of a gun" (two other vaselines tunes) on incesticide.

    Yeah, it went something along the lines of this.

    "This is a song by the Vaselines. I think they based it off of some old Christian song... well, we're doing it the Vaselines way".
