Two of mine have already been mentioned--"I Really Don't Care What You Did on Your Gap Year" and "When I Was a Boy I Thought I Was a Fish" never fail to make me smile. Smith Street Band are great at this--"The Arrogance of the Drunk Pedestrian", "Wipe That Shit-Eating Grin Off Your Punchable Face", "Don't Fuck With Our Dreams", "Get High, See Mice", "I Hope I Scare People on Public Transport", etc.

Beans on Toast-- "All I See is Wagamama" [Would the American version be "All I See is Starbucks"?] Cobra Skulls' "I Used to Like Them when They Put Cobra in the Titles"

Some of my other favorites are from my friends* in Death By Stereo--"One-Legged Man in an Ass-Kicking Contest", "Porno, Sex, Drugs, Lies, Money, and Your Local Government", "High School Was Like Boot Camp for a Desk Job", "You're a Bullshit Salesman with a Mouthful of Samples", "I Wouldn't Piss in Your Ear if Your Brain Was on Fire", "You Mess with One Bean, You Mess with the Whole Burrito"...
*I hope that sounds like a forthright admission of my personal bias more than name-dropping, because trust me, I know their last few albums paled in comparison to their earlier stuff.
Brevity is not my forte.

The "Get High, See..." has become an in joke amongst a lot of Australian artists and friends of Wil Wagner.

All of these artists you should check out, by the way:

Lincoln Lefevre - Get Drunk, See Bands
Luca Brasi - Get Sad, See Mates
Jen Buxton - Get Drunk, Text Linc (see Lincoln Lefevre, above)
Smithies - last Aussie tour name, Get High, See Everyone
Smithies - Get High, See No One


The Wil Wagner song name I love is "What Started Off As Trespassing"

I love Mastodon's song titles :

Stargasm
Blasteroid
Asleep in the deep
Crack the skye
Iron tusk
Once more round' the sun
All the heavy lifting
Octopus has no friends

Or Baroness :

Take my bones away
Cocainium
Wailing Wintry Wind
Teeth of a Cogwheel
The Sweetest Curse
Steel That Sleeps the Eye
A Horse Called Golgotha
Blackpowder Orchard
Bullhead's Lament
If I Forget Thee, Lowcountry
