    Bizarre and Entertaining titles of things

    I'm going to post some of my favorite song titles (because I'm listening to music and so have this on my mind). Share your favorite titles of stuff; preferably, the weirder the better.

    Finnish death metal band Demilich released one album in 1993, called Nespithe. The song titles are among my favorite song titles ever; see for yourself:


    1 "When the Sun Drank the Weight of Water"
    2 "The Sixteenth Six-Tooth Son of Fourteen Four-Regional Dimensions (Still Unnamed)"
    3 "Inherited Bowel Levitation - Reduced Without Any Effort"
    4 "The Echo (Replacement)"
    5 "The Putrefying Road in the Nineteenth Extremity (...Somewhere Inside the Bowels of Endlessness...)"
    6 "(Within) The Chamber of Whispering Eyes"
    7 "And You'll Remain... (In Pieces in Nothingness)"
    8 "Erecshyrinol"
    9 "The Planet That Once Used to Absorb Flesh in Order to Achieve Divinity and Immortality (Suffocated to the Flesh That It Desired...)"
    10 "The Cry"
    11 "Raped Embalmed Beauty Sleep"

    I think tracks 2 and 3 are my favorites. If you can tell me what those tracks--or tracks 1 and 5--are about, I'll send you a cookie in the mail. Well, maybe.

    Best band name - Revolutionary Army of the Infant Jesus

    The Swirling Eddies had some good stuff - particularly on the album Outdoor Elvis, which contained TWO songs which nearly got them shut down - "Athur Fhardy's Yodeling Party" (for a lyric line which didn't bear up well under Freudian psychoanalysis) and "Hide the Beer, the Pastor's Here" (which listed a whole bunch of Christian colleges at the end who didn't appreciate the inclusion). Zoom Daddy has some good track titles, too - "I had a bad experience with the CIA, and now I'm gonna show you my feminine side", "God went bowling", etc. It's totally not your style of music, though.

    Tourniquet went a little overboard with medical terminology, particularly on Pathogenic Ocular Dissonance.

    For medical terminology, grindcore band Vomitorial Corpulence's album Skin Stripper is a gem. (Note: I really don't like grindcore)

    Btw, to my knowledge a copy of Demilich's album can actually be downloaded for free--in a band-sanctioned manner (yeah, I know you can download anything, but this is legit). The music is weird enough to fit the titles, but it's actually very good.

    Edit: should be downloadable from the band's webpage here, if anyone is interested.

    The band is awful, though. I appreciate the vocal style, but this band's lyrics are wholly impenetrable.

    I read a Lovecraft mythos short story the other day by Jeffrey Thomas called "I Married a Shoggoth." If you're at all familiar with the Lovecraft mythos, that title makes no reasonable sense at all.

    I actually rather liked the story, though.

    Well, I uploaded one of my soundtracks and it labeled itself "Breath Souffle World", which is hilariously wrong for "Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild". Does that count?

    Sure, that counts.

    A couple obscure old-school death metal bands I've found out about lately (no, I'm not making these up):

    Demented Ted

    Lemming Project

    Jumpin' Jesus (man, I have no idea)

    Another band called Incubator released an album called "McGillroy the Housefly." Now, if that doesn't make you want to headbang until your neck hurts, I don't know what will.

    Have you read The Night Land by William Hope Hodgson? Apparently it's what inspired Lovecraft.
