    Ahahahaha! I love it! A stab at how science forces an impass for people who can't combine their faith with scientific fact. Brilliant!

    It's clever, but still a terrible album title, at least for a band like this.

    Exactly. I could actually see this being an album title for a band like Gojira for instance.

    I have little to add to this other than I used to really dig DIRT back in the day.

    NOT the worst album title of all time.


    Limp Bizkit - Chocolate Starfish and the Hotdog Flavored Water


    So quit your bitching.

    Fred Durst is a big hairy Chocolate Starfish!!!!

    Come on, that album title is actually hilarious. I just dont think many people get it.

    Yeah that's definitely up there as one of the worst titles of all time for sure. I'm having a hard time coming up with something worse.

    I mean, I'd be a huge hypocrite if I said that aesthetics don't matter in music - but at the same time, I don't see how this title could be bad in terms of aesthetic value in the context of the band. For one thing, "The Devil Put The Dinosaurs Here" does not sound like a metal title to me at all, so I'd be more surprised if if it did come from Gojira.

    "Gretchen Goes to Nebraska" is a stupid title, but...a great album.

    I've heard better, I've heard worse. I'm not going to get hung up on the title much. The last album proved that they still have it, and barring a dramatic shift in tone, this one will be worth it too.

    See what he did there? In a few years, when someone on this forum says "Holy shit, did you guys ever get the meaning of that album? It's hysterical!"' Jason will post something like "I've been 'getting' that for years but nobody cared." :lol::lol:

    Sounds more like a post-rock album title. Definitely not Gojira. I like the title actually.

    How about this quote from the bottom of the article to make you feel old haha

    Can you imagine someone bring their kids to an AIC show against their will?

    Yeah, I thought that reference was pretty obvious!!

    Who am I to judge 'obviousness' though. A friend of mine once mentioned the double meaning of Blink 182's album title "Take Off Your Pants and Jacket" and my response was "what double mea--OHHHHHHHHH". Slow sometimes...

    Take Off Your Pants and Jacket took me a while too, and when I did get it, people were like "Yeah we don't listen to that shit any more though."

    I kinda agree that this AiC title is clever, but doesn't seem to be part of their particular dynamic. I see it more as an indie rock/post rock thing too.

    Take Off Your Pants and Jacket is one of of the best albums ever, title or no title.

    One of the "catchiest" ever too...I've loved it for years.
