The Canadian hardcore band Fucked Up released the album David Comes to Life in 2011. The album is formed as a rock opera.

I just noticed that all the songs have three word titles. I find it hard to think that it is a coincidence. What is the story behind this, if any?

Below is the track listing:

  1. Let Her Rest
  2. Queen of Hearts
  3. Under My Nose
  4. The Other Shoe
  5. Turn the Season
  6. Running On Nothing
  7. Remember My Name
  8. A Slanted Tone
  9. Serve Me Right
  10. Truth I Know
  11. Life In Paper
  12. Ship of Fools
  13. A Little Death
  14. I Was There
  15. Inside a Frame
  16. The Recursive Girl
  17. One More Night
  18. Lights Go Up

  • @Angst A good idea, though I guess you understand that I am looking for some kind of credible source... My first thought was that it just looks good with only three word song titles.

  • Sure, I know any answer has to be from a credible source. All the online reviews I could find about "David Comes to Life" were no help. It seems that FU like themes, but equally they like to leave some things unexplained too.
