Album Titles-Worst of Them

Being true to myself and anyone who may read....I'm now on to my personal choices for Worst Album Titles of all time. Regarding the best album titles list, my wife wondered why there was no explanation of my choices. I figured there were none needed...if I close my eyes and its poetry..if it sounds right...that does it for me. Some of those albums I neither have or like by the way.

As for the worst titles...if I close my eyes and smell smarmyness, idiocy, verbal diarrhea, or it reeks of lazy..its on the list. I omitted the years cuz I figured you'd stop at the title.. Here goes:

    Does #1 mean Led Zep is getting flogged? Surprising.

    Hello Nasty is a GREAT album with a great title.

    Say what you will, I note an inordinate number of album titles that suck based on no real criteria from bands that hey guess what, you just happen to hate. And much brilliance in album title bestowed upon bands and artists you love. Hence Blonde on Blonde, which is a dumb album title if ever there was one.

    Just sayin.

  2. Heh. I think I heard the Hello Nasty thing came from phone calls the beasties were making at the time. The calls were to either a record company or some managment company and they were called "Nasty" something Nasty Records, Nasty productions, etc. So the beasties thought it was funny when they would call and the receptionist would answer the phone "Hello, Nasty.."

  4. I agree, all these are pretty lame, especially EXCEPT for, of course, my Irish boys who can do no wrong...

    Looked at your slideshow pics, your wife is a beauty and your son is too cute for words!
