Fangirling over wordsmiths

I’m no stranger to attention seeking band names (does she wear a rat suit? Spoiler alert: no). And I get oh so delighted when I see other band names, song titles or album titles in the quirky category. Here are a few of my personal favourites:

Gay for Johnny Depp

– if there was a Grammy for best band name, they should have it. They were a tour de force in brilliant (and often offensive) song titles. Google them if you dare. My favourite album title of theirs is:

What Doesn’t Kill You, Eventually Kills You

From the band An Emergency I bring you the songs:

Irony Nein Danke

and

Kevin Bacon

Pulitzer Prize potential!

Peace Burial At Sea captures exactly how life feels at times with this song title:

B-Movie Karma

I found the band Franska Mode Klubben on Myspace (guess my age), and this song title is just awesome:

I Want My CD Back

– didn’t we all know the feeling in the 90’s? Oh the pain! I’m still waiting/for my CD/put it in a bag/send it right away/come on/it really can’t be that hard. Brilliant!

Please enlighten me with your favourites!

Here is what Kevin Bacon sounds like:
