I like Iron Maiden, but they have some horrible song titles :

- Die with your boots on
- The loneliness of the long distance runner (taken from the title of a short story)

Do you know any ?

I'm somewhat ashamed to say I actually really like the song.

It is catchy. And I think the video is hilarious.

I like the Cee Lo Green song too. Catchy, funny, and frankly the (real) title works quite well. In a very similar vein, let's not forget Lily Allen's song of the same name from a year earlier. Also NSFW of course. Good stuff.

I'm not sure what would constitute a bad song title - the Iron Maiden examples cited sound fine to me. I'll have to think about it...

It's very subjective

Now see, I think that's a great title. The song itself was quite a disappointment when I heard it.

All indians must be knowing this so called "worst titled hindi song"- Mohobbat hai mirchi.....lol

It is actually just senseless....the english conversion of this song might be something like this

Love is chilly
Love is chilly
Darling....
Spicy spicy
Tangled Tangled
are the roads to love darling....!!!

ABSOLUTE NONSENSE

George Clinton and pals are good value for nonsense song names. The man's a genius! Interesting side fact: he apparently legally owns a trademark on the phrase "Bow wow wow yippie yo yippie yay".

That is interesting. I wonder how they managed to make this song without infringing trademark -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bow_Wow_%28That%27s_My_Name%29

It contains the line "Bow wow wow yippie yo yippie yay". Or was the sampling done after a contract of some sort was signed ?
