Part of judging something is (should be) first deciding whether you have enough information to make a judgement.

Example, AiC are usually a pretty thoughtful band and their stuff is called what it's called for a reason. We don't know what that reason is, so I agree with Hair Metal Guy (can't remember exact name because he changed it, can't be bothered to scroll and look), we don't yet have enough information to judge whether or not it's a silly title.

Rob Zombie on the other hand doesn't write many songs with meaning, he just writes songs about horror-related stuff that he thinks sounds cool. We therefore do have enough information to judge his silly new album title.

Megadeth could go either way. It might mean something, it might just be a modern phrase Dave thinks sounds cool.
