Element titled albums

Chembark and Carbon based curiosities recently spoke about a connection between music and chemistry (Tom Lehrer and Heavy Metal).

So, there is a connection between music and elements. There are many album with an element title .
There are 'metal element titled albums'.


Palladium by Autopsia

Plutonium by Inca Babies

Or 'two metal elements titled albums'.

Silver & Gold - Neil Young


There are 'non-metal element titled albums'.
Helium by Urban Myth club



Oxygene by Jean Michel Jarre


There are album titles with element symbols as well.
H2O by Hall & Oates

H2SO4 by The Waves

But these are 'compound titled albums' instead of 'element titled albums'.

This raises the question : 'Are there chemical reaction titled albums?'

Chemical reaction by Vodka Collins

Nice try, but this doesn't qualify.

This may qualify.

H to He (Who am the only one) - Van der Graaf Generator

Okay, the sun's conversion of Hydrogen to Helium by nuclear fusion is not a real chemical reaction, but it is a reaction and they use the element symbols. English 70's progressive rock by Peter Hammill et al featuring the fabulous Robert Fripp is nice for a while.

speaking of songs (not albums) with a chemical title, there's another "Palladium" by Weather Report (in the album "Heavy Weather"), and of course many will remember Nirvana's "Lithium". Moreover, I think I read somewhere that the members of Phish studied chemical engineering, but I don't know if they actually graduated.

There's an obscure band called Acroma that had an album called Orbitals.
Awesome post idea, btw.

We also have The Chemical Brothers.
Also, have you already done a "Top 5/10 musician chemists" post? If not, now is the time!

I'm amazed that you know all of this stuff. I had no idea...

slightly off-topic but still apropros, but there's a periodic table on the CD of john mayer's "room for squares" album. cause the elements are...squares. I love John Mayer. People tell me that this makes me a bad person, even more so than my love of killing babies. People are dumb.

Remember Sting and his album "Mercury Falling"? There's a song entitled Lithium Sunset on it!
