For some reason, this is very importnat to me at the moment, and all I can think of is Elvis Costello's "Get Happy!!" (and !!!'s self-titled doesn't count...) There's got to be a lot more. Guys?

Nope, no exclamation point on that one, just the question mark. Guess it was intended as an earnest question.

Gracious! by Gracious! might well be the only one where the album title and band name both have exclamation marks! (And it's a great 1970 album!)

andrew hill has a bunch...what's weird is that all the discographies of his seem to omit the !!!! in the titles.

I know he has

Judgement! (1)
Andrew!!! (3)
and
Compulsion!!!!! (5--omitted from every discography i've seen-even on his own web site, which makes me think that those exclamation marks may have been additions by the blue note graphic designer?)

what other ones of his have !!! on the actual covers?
