Top Ten Songs that are Almost Title Tracks

Usually, an album either does or doesn't have a title track, but sometimes it's more complicated. An album is obviously named after a song, but the titles of the song and album aren't 100 percent exact matches.

The Top Ten

1 Raining Blood - Slayer Raining Blood - Slayer

Album: Regin in Blood - christangrant

2 Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance Welcome to the Black Parade - My Chemical Romance

So beautiful too.

Album: "The Black Parade".

It would have been a perfect opening track, but it's track 5. It would have also fit as a final song, since the first track is named "The End". I have always wondered why to put the album's most climatic and complex song in the middle. - Martin_Canine

3 Peace Sells - Megadeth Peace Sells - Megadeth

Album: Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? - christangrant

4 Nightfall - Blind Guardian

Album: Nightfall in Middle Earth - Metal_Treasure

5 Alison Hell - Annihilator

Album: Alice In Hell.
In the song they call the girl "Alice! Alison! " which makes clear that these are 2 versions of the same name and refer to the same character. - Metal_Treasure

6 Tears of a Mandrake - Edguy

Album: Mandrake - Metal_Treasure

7 Bedtime Story - Madonna

Album: "Bedtime Stories" - Martin_Canine

8 Fight for All the Wrong Reasons - Nickelback

Album: "All the Right Reasons"

What they probably had in mind was that while people fight for all the wrong reasons, their fans buy the album for all the right reasons, mostly because it's an awesome album. - Martin_Canine

9 Hardwired - Metallica

That's a pretty cool album cover

Album: Hardwired... to Self-Destruct - Metal_Treasure

10 Welcome To Heartbreak - Kanye West

Album: "808s & Heartbreak"

Again, why is this track 2 and not track 1? - Martin_Canine

The Contenders

11 Planktonweed - SpongeBozz

Even though the album cover says "Plankton Weed", the album is called "Planktonweed Tape". Even though it's an album and not a mixtape. - Martin_Canine

12 Rust in Peace... Polaris - Megadeth

Album: Rust in Peace - christangrant

13 Down with the Sickness - Disturbed

Album: The Sickness - christangrant

14 Birth - GARNiDELiA

Album: "Birthia".

I am not quite sure if the song and the album title connect in any way... because I don't know what "Birthia" is supposed to mean. - Martin_Canine

15 Marshall Mathers - Eminem

Album: "The Marshall Mathers LP" - Martin_Canine

16 21st Century Digital Girl - Groove Coverage

Album: "21st Century" - Martin_Canine

17 Bridging the Gaps - The Black Eyed Peas

Album: "Bridging the Gap".

Interesting. Usually, you would expect the album to have the plural form. - Martin_Canine

18 The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly) - Missy Elliott

Album: "Supa Dupa Fly". - Martin_Canine

19 Monster - Lady Gaga

Album: "The Fame Monster".

Initially, "The Fame Monster" was a double disc reissue of "The Fame", so I thought that while the first disc is "The Fame", the second disc would be "Monster". But the second disc was then released as an individual album, also titled "The Fame Monster". - Martin_Canine

20 I Keep on Lovin' You - Reba McEntire

Album :"Keep on Loving You"

21 Futuresex/Lovesound - Justin Timberlake

Album: "Futuresex/Lovesounds" - Martin_Canine

22 Blessed are the Sick / Leading the Rats - Morbid Angel
23 Dark Sky (Skyscrapers) - Big Sean

Album: "Dark Sky Paradise"

Obviously a mix of the two albun tracks "Dark Sky (Skyscrapers)" and "Paradise". - Martin_Canine

24 Paradise - Big Sean

Album: "Dark Sky Paradise"

Obviously a mix of the two album tracks "Dark Sky (Skyscrapers)" and "Paradise". - Martin_Canine

25 Pies Descalzos, SueƱos Blancos - Shakira

Album: "Pies Descalzos" - Martin_Canine

26 Old Heart Falls - Katatonia
