Finally, a way to make Wikipedia useful...

I don't ordinarily do things like this, but Molly's example cracked me up so here goes:

1. Go to the Wikipedia home page and click Random Article (on the side menu). That is your band's name.
2. Click random article again; that is your album name.
3. Click random article 15 more times; those are the tracks on your album.

Band Name: Jesus Loves Me
Album: Eye Development

1. Locomotive Wheelslip
2. Sydney 38
3. Geelong Baptist Church
4. List Of English Words Of Sanskrit Origin
5. John Jones
6. USS Rescue
7. Timeline Of Quebec History
8. Galloway
9. Aiomun-Kondi
10. Atletico Nacional
11. Monosolenium
12. Don't Be Scared (a Daniel Johnston cover!)
13. Boyo
14. Chaiyaphum
15. Excuses For Travellers (bonus track; Mojave 3 cover)

Huh, I guess mine is an experimental Christian post-rock band. Would it seem like utter pandering if I invited you to post your own in the comments?

Band Name: WUTM
Album: The Prisoner (an article about an actual Herbie Hancock album)

1. Pirgulu State Reserve
2. Church Times
3. Copgrove
4. Johnny Handsome
5. Eastern Common Cuscus
6. Live at St. Olave's (another actual album)
7. Ryan Vella
8. Demobilization
9. Girjet
10. Charlotte-Jane
11. Days of Speed (yet another album - this one by Paul Weller)
12. Barclay Fox
13. Bell 201
14. Beresfield railway station, New South Wales
15. First Things First (another album!)

I'm guessing WUTM is some sort of free jazz / ambient type thing with pretentions toward world music. Most of these songs sound like they should have movements and subsections.
