Almost any Mother's LP will have an amusing title and song names.
"More Money For You And Me" -- The Four Preps

Well, perhaps in itself the title isn’t as amusing as some, but combined with the song’s fantastic impressions of diverse groups from the early days of rock n’ roll the result is one of the most amusing songs I can think of.

Note, btw, that the orchestration was conducted by Lincoln Mayorga, of Sheffield Lab fame, who was closely associated with The Four Preps during the early part of his career.

Dead Kennedys - Nazi Punks F--- Off.
Hi Eric, I’ll start off with....

"Why They Name Whiskey After Men" Dawn Landes


I'm the Only Hell (Mama Ever Raised) from Redneck Girlfriend's album Blood Sweat and Beers
Almost any song by Slade !


"Aloysius, Bluegrass Drummer"  Silver Jews
"Let's Not and Say We Did" Silver Jews
"Sometimes a Pony Gets Depressed" Silver Jews
  • Are you beginning to see a pattern?
"She's Making Friends, I'm Turning Stranger"  Purple Mountains
Te Mafia Stole My Guitar - Alex Harvey (solo album after SAHB, 1979)
"God May Forgive You (But I Won’t)". Written by Harlan Howard & Bobby Braddock, I first heard it by Iris Dement (Rosie Flores does a great version too). When she would perform it with John Prine, she would sing it looking directly at him. Always gets a laugh. except from some Christian Right lunatic who claims it is "one of the most evil songs ever written." Sounds like a real fun guy.
I would initiate a "Funniest Guitar Solos" thread, but almost all are only unintentionally funny. One exception is the solo in The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band's "In The Canyons Of Your Mind" (on their Tadpoles album), which mocks the excessive guitar soloing that was going on in Rock at the time of it's release. One of my favorite pieces of humour, written by the brilliant Vivian Stanshall.
"Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together in a Cave and Grooving with a Pict"---Pink Floyd
Big Bottom by Spinal Tap followed by a side serving of Break Like The Wind.......
None of these are overtly funny but... Don't Fight It, Marsha, It's Bigger Than Both of Us -Blam Blam Blam/ Never Mind the Bollocks its...The Sex Pistols / The Blues, the Whole Blues and Nothing But the Blues ...David Bromberg/Trout Mask Replica ...Capt Beefheart combined with the album cover is highly unusual if not funny
You’re right. They’re covertly funny.

Sand in the Vaseline 
the Talking Heads
"Why Does It Hurt When I Pee"
Dill.... Youre on the wrong site.  This is Audiogon not Anonymous questions to Doctors. 
How about Spooky Tooth, "You Broke My Heart So I Busted Your Jaw"
or the great Vince Gill title (Not sure he ever actually wrote the song) "It's Hard to Kiss the Lips At Night That Have Been Chewing Your Ass All Day Long".
“I’ve Got all This Ringing in my Ears and None on My Fingers”---Fall Out Boy
"You're the Reason Our Kids Are So Ugly" ---Country Partners (Loretta Lynn & Conway Twitty)
From "Joe's Garage "
Frank Zappa Lyrics"Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?"

[Act I]

[SCENE SEVEN]
[WHY DOES IT HURT WHEN I PEE?]

Shortly after his liaison with the taco stand lady,
JOE makes a horrible discovery...

[JOE:]
Why does it hurt when I pee?
Why does it hurt when I pee?
I don't want no doctor
To stick no needle in me
Why does it hurt when I pee?
I got it from the toilet seat
I got it from the toilet seat
It jumped right up
'N' grabbed my meat
Got it from the toilet seat
My balls feel like a pair of maracas
My balls feel like a pair of maracas
Oh God I probably got the Gon-o-ka-ka-khackus!
My balls feel like a pair of maracas
Ai-ee-ai-ee-ahhhh!
Why does it
Why does it
Why does it
Why does it hurt...
when...
I Peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee?

Personal favs:

 MOD- USA for MOD - loaded with,classics”

SOD. -  speak English or die!  Amazing!

 Two of the greatest albums ever released.  
\,,/
metal forever!
"Put the "O" back in Country" - Shooter Jennings
You can tune a piano but you can’t tuna fish....REO Speedwagon
"A lap dance is so much better when the stripper is crying"

The Bloodhound gang
“It crawled into my hands, honest!” By the Fugs (album and song)
lyrics also Fugs:
...my baby went out with another guy and I feel like homemade sh!t...
So much for a wasted youth!
"You Bought It - You Name It"  Joe Walsh
Mars Volta captured the ultimate in degraded human existence with the album title: "De-loused in a Comatorium."  I thought that was morbidly funny.

The Gorillaz' "Laika Come Home" is also pretty funny to me.
A group with a somewhat amusing name--Black Box Recorder--did a song called "Watch the Angel Not the Wire" which I think is clever.  

I also like Thomas Dolby's album: "Aliens Ate My Buick."
"I Left My Flannel in Seattle" from Butt Trumpet's Primitive Enema.
Nickelback - Greatest Hits
Nickelback Greatest Hits--now that is funny.
They Ain't Makin' Jews Like Jesus Anymore   Kinky Friedman
Mojo Nixon & Skid Roper:

"Stuffin' Martha's Muffin"
"I'm Living With a Three Foot Antichrist"
"Jesus At McDonald's"
Two of my favorites that come to mind:

"Blow it Out Your A--,it's Veruca Salt" (Veruca Salt)
and
"Liquor in Front, Poker in the Rear" The Reverend Horton Heat
My Head Hurts, My feet Stink, and I Don’t Love Jesus...Jimmy Buffet

Damn ya'll, these are some great ones, many new to me.

Not a song or album title, but the lyrics in one Zappa song on the We're Only In It For The Money album (okay, there's a pretty good nominee) has the protagonist fantasizing about moving to San Francisco and "sitting in the dirt, playing bongos." I haven't heard it since the year of it's release, but found it's mocking of the Summer Of Love to be quite welcome.

“She Was a Red Hot Tomater from Decatur”

Don’t recall the act, but they were from the hills of Appalachia.  Sort of a poor man’s Flatt & Scruggs.   😁
Hank Williams Jr:

Some High Society lady asked me,
   “Is that your horse outside?”

I said, “No Ma’am, mine’s between my legs,
   But you’re too fat to ride!”

👍🏻👌🏻
" I Promise I Won't Come In Your Mouth" - Frank Zappa-- PG rated- It's an instrumental.
"Big Nuthin' ", The Roches

" You don't have to cross the street
When you see me comin'
Too much trouble...."
RIP, Maggie Roche....
"Oscillate Wildly" - The Smiths

Probably best known for being used as background muzak by the Weather Channel during their early days of existence.
