Shawn Mullins: "The First Ten Years" (1999).

That's all. Just sharing.

"The Essential Shawn Mullins" is likewise a howler.

"Mellow Gold"

As I've previously stated (to mild but uniform ILM derision), I like "Lullaby". But this is too much.

surely that is self-aware ribbing though!

Hmmm -- nothing about VI ever really struck me as "self-aware"--least of all his rap-rock comeback--but you never know.

I remember laughing out loud when I first heard that R.E.M. were going to call their next album Monster, but the joke hasn't stayed w/me in that way for awhile.

I seem to remember some band in the 1980s called the Fuk Notz coming out with an album entitled "Let's play Scratch 'n' Sniff with grandpa's butt"!!!!!

Well somebody already mentioned the Butthole Surfers. But nobody mentioned Alice Donut's records yet...
Donut Comes Alive!
Bucketfulls of Sickness and Horror in an Otherwise Meaningless Life
Revenge Fantasies of the Impotent
Untidy Suicides of yoru Degenerate Children
and of course, their greatest song title: "The Son of a Disgruntled X-Postal Worker Reflects on His Life While Getting Stoned in the Parking Lot of a Winn Dixie While Listening to Metallica."

as far as people who purposely give their albums funny titles, david holmes has a few gems – lets get killed and this film's crap lets slash the seats.

Phil Collins called his greatest hits album "HITS". There used to be a big billboard on the approach to Blackfriars train station advertising it, with a picture of Phil and the word HITS written in very big letters.

Can you guess how that was subtly altered by some people with spraycans?

Blink-182 - Take Off Your Pants and Jacket

I seem to remember that the Super Furry Animals considered using the name of their song 'The Very Best Of Neil Diamond' as the album title (for what became Dark Days/Light Years). Probably good that they didn't, but it would have been hilarious.

A deliberate joke that I always thought was funny: Paul McCartney has this live album called Paul Is Live.

As a title, "Yerself Is Steam"

(xp) bit too much like Throbbing Gristle, "20 Jazz Funk Greats" or Ween's "12 Golden Country Greats" perhaps?

The Mekons' "The quality of mercy is not strnen."

Glad to see that someone mentioned this one early on in the thread (of course it doesn't make sense without the album cover)

I know, I saw the album title back in the day but I never saw the album picture until about 15 years afterwards...

Re: Christine Indigos earlier (14 years earlier) post. It couldn't be Squirrel Bait as they only made two lps in their lifetime. The eponymous debut and the wonderfully titled Skag Heaven. I'm pretty sure (if my memories of ads in old issues of Forced Exposure don't deceive me) that title you mentioned belongs to Bastro. Whom I believe are S.B. related so it's close. For some reason my subconscious keeps saying Gastr del Sol, but I'm gonna go with Bastro.

There was a folk singer named something like "George Gerdes." Anyway, his first album was called "Obituary." His second album was "Son of Obituary."
