Murder The Mountains Out Today!!!!! (AKA My Ideas For Album Titles)

It’s a pretty safe bet that most folks out there would think the toughest part of putting out a new record is the process of writing new songs, but those people would be wrong. Playing music is what these guys do, I don’t want to make it sound like they just go to the bathroom and drop out a new jam, clean up with a little T.P. and plop it down on to tape—there is a lot of blood, sweat and beers (Oh man, that's a record title right there) that go into every song. The problems start when you try to get four guys to agree on tracks, track listing (the order of the songs on the record), title and artwork. This is not because they fight each other (for the most part) but because no one will put their foot down, in fear of being the guy who came up with the name no one likes. The end result is much like a pack of monkeys trying to hump a football, it’s kind of awkward to watch and nothing comes of it.

So being the team player I am I came up with a bunch of album titles for them. They all got shot down. I’m not sure why, I thought they were pretty good:

Three Beards And A Bald Spot (guess who shot this one down)

Two Geeks, A Nerd And A Dweeb

Red Fang Two: Electric Boogaloo

Drunks Not Dead

Moshportunities

Fanny Packs and Girls Jeans (The hipsters would eat it up)

Hey Gandalf, Nice Dress! (Keep riding that Prehistoric-Dog wave)

In real small letters: This Is The New Red Fang album not the new (in big letters) LADY GAGA!

Snacks, Hugs And Rock n’ Roll

Red Fang: Grunge Is Still Cool Right?
