The Longest Mid-‘00s Song Titles That You Totally Forgot About (An Unnecessarily Wordy List Feature)

Remember the 2000s? Allow us to take you back to a time when everyone had a sidekick and a massive fringe, and a time where bands had the longest song titles.

Guarantee you had one of these on your MSN / AIM title.

I'm Like A Lawyer With The Way I'm Always Trying To Get You Off (Me & You) - Fall Out Boy
Brackets. The classic song title extender used by so many bands in the last decade (and if you don't believe us, just look at the rest of this list).

You Be the Anchor That Keeps My Feet On the Ground, I'll Be the Wings That Keep Your Heart In The Clouds - Mayday Parade
104 characters. One hundred and four characters. You could type out the alphabet exactly four times in that space, but Mayday used the space to write this brilliantly, outrageously long song title.

Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off - Panic! At The Disco
Long title, short summary: this song is a banger.

I Will Never Write an Obligatory Song About Being on the Road and Missing Someone - Say Anything
We see what you did there, Say Anything. We see what you did there a lot.

Prostitution Is The World's Oldest Profession (And I, Dear Madame, Am A Professional) - Cobra Starship
This is so 2007. Cobra Starship, a song title that runs across about eight lines of text and more synths than you can handle inside the song itself. Take us back.

You Know What They Do to Guys Like Us in Prison - My Chemical Romance
Hands up if you put this as your AIM username when it was released...

*Rock Sound raises hand*
*Rock Sound looks around an empty room*
*Rock Sound puts hand back down*

Moving on...

Waterwings (And Other Poolside Fashion Faux Pas) - Alexisonfire
Great song title. Great video. Great cut from Alexisonfire's early days.
