With the power of naming your song titles comes great responsibility. Your sweetest songs can be named anything at all, and nothing can stop you.

And some artists have taken this power and have used it to the most entertaining of extents, naming their musical outputs in the most ridiculous ways.

Sometimes, to our enjoyment, the crazy song title is actually what the song is about.

Here are 8 examples of ridiculous song titles that we are so glad exist in the world.

1. ‘I Cannot F*cking Wait Til Morrissey Dies’ – JPEGMAFIA

Hilarious name aside, this song is actually really good, and comes from a pretty impressive 2018 album. As of late, it seems everyone hates Morrissey for his not so likeable antics, it was only a matter of time until someone made a song about hating him.

2. ‘A Lap Dance Is So Much Better When The Stripper Is Crying’ – The Bloodhound Gang

From the equally comically titled album Hooray for Boobies, The Bloodhound Gang have given us a song for all of our funerals to come. Would this be considered 8-bit country? We think so.

3. ‘Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict’ – Pink Floyd

Honestly, this track is exactly what the title says. A punch of animal sounds and a little bit of classic Pink Floyd oddity chucked in. Why is this song so oddly groovy and weird at the same time though?

4. ‘Our Lawyers Made Us Change The Name Of This Song So We Wouldn’t Get Sued’ – Fallout Boy

When someone asks what you’re listening to, just respond with this track title in full. And in case you were wondering, the original title was “My Name Is David Ruffin And These Are The Temptations”.

5. ‘You’re The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly’ – Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty

YouTube VideoPlay

Honestly, these two are just perfect together, I mean have you heard ‘As Soon As I Hang Up The Phone?’ Karaoke perfection. And let’s be honest, if the kids are ugly, it isn’t Loretta’s fault.

6. ‘Jesus Saves, I Spend’ – St. Vincent

YouTube VideoPlay

A pretty smart title for a song, even if it has very little to do with the song itself. St. Vincent usually sticks with very straightforward titles, but this one definitely deserves a spot on this list.

7. ‘I Break Mirrors With My Face In The United States’ – Death Grips

YouTube VideoPlay

Well known provocateurs who exist within their own genre, Death Grips, never fail to entertain with their song titles. An honourable mention goes out to their song ‘You might think he loves you for your money but I know what he really loves you for it’s your brand new leopard skin pillbox hat’.

8. ‘≈Ω≈Ω≈Ω≈Ω≈Ω≈Ω≈Ω≈Ω≈’ – Grimes

Can you pronounce this song title because we sure can’t. The weirder thing is that the song sounds just like the title looks.
