Best and Worst Album Titles

well for the record i must have nearly 300 albums in my music collection

how the hell did i get such a HUGE collection?

i have my ways

anyway in your opinion which albums do you think have the best titles and which ones have the WORST titles? and no, this does not take away anything from the fact it may or may not be a good album

The Best
OK Computer- Radiohead
Achtung Baby- U2
The Joshua Tree- U2
Play- Moby
Violator- Depeche Mode
Yield- Pearl Jam
Second Toughest In The Infants- Underworld
Everyone Else Is Doing It So Why Cant We- The Cranberries
Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie- Alanis Morrissette
Yourself Or Someone Like You- Matchbox 20
You've Come A Long Way Baby- Fatboy Slim
Power, Corruption and Lies- New Order
Know Your Enemy- Manic Street Preachers

The WORST
18- Moby- any title which uses a nothing but a number is kind of lame
Pablo Honey- Radiohead
Creed- Human Clay
Creed- Weathered
All that you cant Leave Behind- U2 - you have to admit, its pretty lame
Dubnobasswithmyheadman- Underworld. thats not a word
Madonna- The First Album not particularly imaginary
Metallica's self titled album- HELL! ANYTHING BY METALLICA

Everyone knows the best album title of all time was Van Halen's "For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge".

Wasn't there an album from Fiona Apple that had a RIDICULOUSLY long title???

It started , "When the Pawn hits......" etc etc etc??

Help me out here.

If there was, then that is the worst album title.

Best album title??? Why, Rattle and Hum, of course...

When The Pawn Hits The Conflicts He Thinks Like A King What He Knows Throws The Blows When He Goes To The Ring There's No Body To Batter When Your Mind Is Your Might So When You Go Solo, You Hold Your Own Hand And Remember That Depth Is The Greatest of Heights And If You Know Where You Stand, Then You Know Where To Land And If You Fall It Won't Matter, 'Cuz You'll Know That You're Right.

i like it

Rancid - Life Wont Wait
Sky Cries Mary - Moonbathing on Sleeping Leaves
The Slackers - Wasted Days
Beck - ODELAY! (damn that's cool)
The Beastie Boys - Hello Nasty
The Clash - Combat Rock
Bob Marley - Confrontation
Cibo Matto - Viva La Woman!
Soul Coughing - El Oso


------------------
It's like lotto - you gotta be in it to win it.

All That You Can't Leave Behind is a "lame" album title?

I've always thought What's the Story Morning Glory is a pretty cool album title.
