There are countless songs out there waiting to be listened to and many of them have names that are, frankly, a bit boring and uninspired. Why not try listening to some songs that have rather unique and weird names? We’ve rounded up 11 songs with pretty weird names and a lot of them are actually quite good!
‘Our Lawyer Made Us Change The Name Of This Song So We Wouldn’t Get Sued’ by Fall Out Boy
The band wanted to call the first song on their album From Under the Cork Tree ‘My Name Is David Ruffin And These Are The Temptations’, but after their lawyer advised them they’d get sued, the band decided on this imaginative title instead.
2. ‘We Threw Gasoline On The Fire And Now We Have Stumps For Arms And No Eyebrows’ by NOFX
Weird as this song title is, at least it promotes fire safety!
3. ‘Flushed From The Bathroom Of Your Heart’ by Johnny Cash
The meaning of this song title is understandable enough, but who would liken someone’s heart to a bathroom of all things?
4. ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ by Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke
No doubt the best known song on the list, ‘Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious’ was recorded for the classic film Mary Poppins. Now trying saying it backwards…
5. ‘Prostitution Is The World’s Oldest Profession (And I, Dear Madam, Am A Professional)’ by Cobra Starship
This song by Cobra Starship is just as crazy and out-there as its rather lengthy title suggests.
6. ‘Scheiße’ by Lady Gaga
One of Lady Gaga’s more imaginatively titled songs, ‘Scheiße’ is a German swear word whose English equivalent you can probably guess. The song is all about female empowerment and has Gaga attempt a faux German accent.
7. ‘You’re The Reason Our Kids Are Ugly’ by Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty
This song by country music singer-songwriter duo Loretta Lynn and Conway Twitty was inspired by the father of Loretta’s children, who got her pregnant at 15 and had numerous affairs.
8. ‘I Like Bananas (Because They Have No Bone)’ by George Elrick

9. ‘My Guitar Wants To Kill Your Mama’ by Frank Zappa
Originally recorded by The Mothers of Invention in 1969, the comedy rock song was released as a single with the more conservative title ‘My Guitar’ but didn’t chart.
10. ‘Get Your Tongue Outta My Mouth ‘Cause I’m Kissing You Goodbye’ by Ray Stevens

11. Christina Perri – ‘Jar of Hearts’
The slightly macabre-sounding song was a big hit, selling over four million copies in the US alone, as well as a few more million worldwide.
