    Mothers of Invention   "Weasels Ripped My Flesh"    Lots of good titles in Zappa's work.

Britney spears - "Oops, I shaved my head again"
Hilary Duff - "Oops, I nauseated some movie critics again"
Michael Jackson - "Oops, I got indicted for molesting young boys again"
But the BEST album title is
U2 - "Oops... Bono is not that great a singer and Edge is not that good of a guitar player but dammit they are wonderful humanitarians!"

I saw the cover for this one during my all-too-brief stint working in the music library at Bowling Green State University (the world's largest recorded music archive next to the Library of Congress):

"Waltz A Crossdress Texas" by The Hickoids

Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen."

Alice Cooper:  "Zipper Catches Skin"  or  "Asprin Damage"  or really, any Alice Cooper album name...  He was an artist with the turn of a phrase...

"I love the dead before their eyes; no farewells no goodbyes; I never even knew your now rotting face-- while friends and lovers mourn your silly grave... I have other uses for you, darling...

...I love the dead before they're cold, their bluing flesh for ME to hold, cadaver eyes, upon ME see... nothing..."   

I Love the Dead, Alice Cooper.

See how he does with the "cadaver eyes see nothing", there?  Cuz he's nekkid they see nothing ON him, plus cuz they are dead they can't see anything either... how cool that is?  Huh?  Huh?  Am I right?  Is this thing on...

Probably something by GWAR. If not album names, they have some priceless song names.

GWAR has some great song names, but I think Anal Cunt takes the cake for funny song names.

I've always liked these album titles:

Death By Stereo - If Looks Could Kill I'd Watch You Die
Cradle of Filth - Bitter Suites to Succubi

I'm not a fan of Ted Nuget but his album - Intensities in Ten Cities is pretty clever too.
