I'm curious.

I've seen a number of very funny/clever/deep/bizarre song titles.  What are your favorites?

I'll start things off with come on and dig me, cause i'm the fly pygmy by Soul Coughing.

The comedian Boothby Graffoe has some quirky song titles. Like 'Don't Put That There Tt'll Fa-Oh Look!' and 'Giraffes Can't Play Harmonicas, So It Can't Be A Giraffe'.

McLusky
"The World Loves Us and Is Our Bitch"
"Random Celebrity Insult Generator"
"WhiteLiberalonWhiteLiberalAction"

Kid606
"Luke Vibert Can Kiss My Indie-Punk Whiteboy Ass"
"It'll Take Millions in Plastic Surgery to Make Me Black"
"Dramatic Pause of Silence to Signify the End of the Album and Beginning of Additional Songs Included on the CD to Make People Feel Better About Buying the CD Instead of the Vinyl Version"

The Locust
"Captain Gaydar, It's Time To Wind Your Clock Again"
"High Maintainance Libido, Bring the Whole Family"
"Solar Panel Asses"

A danish group called Kashmir have some great song titles:
Vote for Dick Taid
Don`t Look Back, It's Probably Hypochondriac jack Having A Heart Attack
Could we kill Fred?
Lollypork Stomp

Amen to McCluskey - they are the kings of amazing titles, though I feel I should add
'Dave, stop killing prostitutes' to that list, as the best title in the world, ever

Anything by Anal C*nt tends to make me laugh (I felt the need to censor that for some reason - this board seems to not use 'bad' language quite as much as some others I find myself wasting time on!).  I don't even listen to it, I just find myself amused by the song titles, which I suppose is why they do it in the first place; for the shock value.

Seconding all mentions of Type O Negative, Anal Cunt, Impaled Northern Moonforest and KMFDM, with the addition of

KMFDM-A Drug Against War.

now...

Bal-Sagoth

'And Lo, When The Imperium Marches Against Gul-Kothoth, Then Dark Sorceries Shall Enshroud The Citadel Of The Obsidian Crown'
'Behold, The Armies Of War Descend Screaming From The Heavens!'
'Starfire Burning Upon The Ice-Veiled Throne Of Ultima Thule'
'To Dethrone The Witch-Queen Of Mytos K'Unn (The Legend Of The Battle Of Blackhelm Vale)'
'The Splendour Of A Thousand Swords Gleaming Beneath The Blazon Of The Hyperborean Empire'

etc.

Gorerotted
'Fuck Your Arse With Broken Glass'
'Gagged, Shagged and Bodybagged'
'Hacked in the Back, Dumped in a Sack'
'Her Gash I Did Slash'
'Masticated by the Spasticated'
'Only Tools and Corpses'
'Put Your Bits in a Concrete Mix'
'Severed, Sawn and Sold as Porn'

'Great Blow For A Day Job'
'History Lessens'
'Land of the Rising Slum'
'Polkageist!'

etc. The lyrics are simply genius.

and probably some more.
