** ''Jude Law And A Semester Abroad'', ''I Will Play My Game Beneath The Spin Light'', ''Okay I Believe You But My Tommy Gun Don't'' (a quote from ''Film/HomeAlone'''s [[ShowWithinAShow film within a film]] ''Angels With Dirty Souls''), ''Good To Know That If I Ever Need Attention All I Have To Do Is Die'', ''Last Chance to Lose Your Keys'', ''Logan to Government Center'' (A reference to stops on Boston's subway system, sort of justified by the lyrics mentioning New England).

* Helms frequently use song titles that have nothing to do with the lyrics, though they've explained at least some of them as band in-jokes: For instance, "Sno-Cone Lizard" got its title from an incident where, as a teenager, a member surreptitiously put a Music/TheJesusLizard sticker on the family car - his mother found the band's name offensive, and rather than have to scrape the whole sticker off, she just partially covered it up with a "sno-cone" sticker.

** Most sources cite the latter explanation, that it refers to the side-scrolling dungeons, which makes it an ArtifactTitle with ''ValkyrieProfileCovenantOfThePlume''.

Added DiffLines:

* The two ''VideoGame/SenranKagura'' games for Playstation systems are titled ''Shinovi Versus'' and ''Estival Versus''. These almost make sense to the plots - the first is based on a free-for-all between Shino'''b'''i teams, and the second around a '''F'''estival. And the misspelling isn't {{Engrish}}, either; the games have a competent and consistent sub. It turns out these are the closest way possible of communicating something in the Japanese title, "Senran" is similarly misspelled (technically, it's two kanji that make perfect sense in context, but form a gibberish word when compounded). Ironically, Shinovi Versus' Japanese subtitle, ''Proof of Life'', makes complete sense in both languages.

** The title of the album ''Bee Thousand'' at least sort of has an explanation - Supposedly Robert Pollard passed a theater that was showing ''{{Film/Beethoven}}'', but on the marquee the title was misspelled as "Beethouen" [[note]]Most likely the theater just didn't have any v's left among it's sign letters[[/note]]. "Bee-thow-en" stuck in his mind, and then gradually turned into "bee thousand". Another motivation for the title choice was an obtuse ShoutOut - "Bee Thousand" sounds similar to [[TheWho Pete Townsend]]. And ''Vampire On Titus'' is sort of SelfDeprecation - Pollard lived on a street called Titus Avenue, and someone he knew referred to him derogatorily as "the vampire on Titus".

** The sequel is ''VideoGame/BravelySecond: End Layer''. "Bravely Second" only makes sense ''as'' a sequel to a previous "Bravely" work (there was a "Bravely Second" game mechanic in the first game, but the name barely makes sense there either). The same goes for a planned sequel tentatively titled ''Bravely Third''. The meaning of "End Layer" is unknown.

* ''Literature/DragonsLexiconTriumvirate''. There's dragons, there's a lexicon, and there's sort of a trio of main characters if you turn your head and squint a bit, but the title doesn't really mean much.

* ''Anime/PanzerWorldGalient''. The title doesn't make much sense. This show features a HumongousMecha or [[AMechByAnyOtherName Panzer]] called "Galient", and the setting is an alien world.
