Originally self-released on May 16, 2003. This album also contains their most successful track, "BEER!!!".

"We Couldn't Think of a Title" reached #41 on the Billboard's Top Heatseekers,[2] #4 on the Billboard's Top Heatseeker's (West North Central),[3] and #48 on the Top Independent Albums.[4]

Trivia[edit]

Psychostick's musical influences are mentioned during a skit following the song 'Pluh' (but within the same track on the album), in which the band continues discussing potential album names for their release. For example, one band-member suggests naming the album 'Destroy Erase Chaosphere,' which references two of Meshuggah's studio albums. Other musical acts mentioned are Pantera and Sevendust.
