Ahhhh, the long title. An art form that not many can get right. All 10 of the songs on this list have more than 10 words in their name and we think that’s beautiful.
FALL OUT BOY – ‘I’VE GOT A DARK ALLEY AND A BAD IDEA THAT SAYS YOU SHOULD SHUT YOUR MOUTH’
Audio sunshine in its purest of forms right here.
PANIC! AT THE DISCO – ‘THERE’S A GOOD REASON THESE TABLES ARE NUMBERED HONEY, YOU JUST HAVEN’T THOUGHT OF IT YET’
The audio equivalent of walking into an old fashioned theatre in your best clothes for an evening of light entertainment and refreshments.
MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE – ‘HONEY, THIS MIRROR ISN’T BIG ENOUGH FOR THE TWO OF US’
An OG classic with a title that we all scrawled onto the back of our school books. Yeah, you been seen.
NORMA JEAN – ‘PRETTY SOON I DON’T KNOW WHAT BUT SOMETHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN’
Along with having a bloody long name, this is a bloody long song. Clocking in at just over 15 minutes, this is a swirling, slow burning mosh anthem for the ages.
LOWER THAN ATLANTIS – ‘I’M NOT BULIMIC (I JUST WANTED TO SEE HOW FAR I COULD STICK MY FINGERS DOWN MY THROAT)’
Mike Duce has always had a wicked tongue and way with words, and no more so on this fast paced offering.
MAYDAY PARADE – ‘IF YOU WANTED A SONG WRITTEN ABOUT YOU, ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS ASK’
If you’re ever going through a hard time, the cry of “I DON’T NEED YOU OR ANYBODY ELSE” should pull you through to the other side.
DESTROY REBUILD UNTIL GOD SHOWS – ‘IF YOU THINK THIS SONG IS ABOUT YOU, IT PROBABLY IS’
Another band, another account of heartbreak in the most scatching of manners.
ASKING ALEXANDRIA – ‘IF YOU CAN’T RIDE TWO HORSES AT ONCE… YOU SHOULD PROBABLY GET OUT OF THE CIRCUS’
AA: Serving up meaty riffs and pretty good life advice since 2009.
FIREWORKS – ‘WHEN WE STAND ON EACH OTHER WE BLOCK OUT THE SUN’
An underappreciated gem from the pop-punk stratosphere with a cracking title to boot. We miss you Fireworks, come home soon please.
