Spinoff from the "I've Got My Own Album to Do" thread. This should be a nearly infinite goldmine of groaners. The 70s (again) was the heyday for this, but def bonus points for any entries from the post-punk world.

Let's kick it off with a debut album whose title must cause a [url="http://www.allmusic.com/album/whole-oats-mw0000650229";]stomach-churning regret[\url] every time Daryl & John remember it.

it seems a wasted opportunity that Lowe only ever did one of these, he could have taken it to Greg Kihn levels if he'd tried

I quite like that one - as well as continuing the 'mael' pun, I guess the fan could be seen as a callback to the cover of 'Kimono My House' (which much be their best known album in UK by some margin)?
