I'm not having a problem with the titles from Skerik's new one. I rather enjoy giving the title to track 2 " Go To Hell, Mr. Bush". I guess the rest of it is whether your comfortable with the concept of Taint. For some reason I don't have a problem saying that but I can't seem to bring myself to say Piss Freaky from the new Troglodytes.
