Heavy Acronyms

The Y! Music Playlist Blog

This playlist contains 18 songs whose titles are an acronym. That is, an abbreviation written using only the first letter of each word in a phrase.

For those of us who work in technology or spend more time than we should texting, acronyms have become popular to the point of being ridiculous. OMG LOL IHA!

Well, acronyms are not just for text-happy tweens and computer dorks. Musicians dig 'em too. And they have for quite some time.

In order to narrow the huge number of acronym songs down a bit, I've selected only tracks with big guitars and sizable cahones for this playlist. This filter helps make for a fine listen if you're into the heavier end of the musical spectrum. It includes metal, punk and hard rock by bands like System of a Down, Black Sabbath, W.A.S.P., Mudvayne, Sex Pistols, The Hives, MxPx, Megadeth, Twisted Sister, Smashing Pumpkins and more.
