Unoriginal song/album titles

Do you ever notice how albums and songs can have the same names as other albums and songs of different bands?  What names and how often does this happen?  Well…

Top 20 overused song titles:

Rank Name # of Songs
1 Intro 18186
2 Untitled 5502
3 Outro 5318
4 2266
5 I 1185
6 II 1040
7 III 912
8 Nightmare 760
9 War 688
10 Interlude 680
11 Alone 678
12 Lost 676
13 The End 668
14 IV 649
15 Introduction 634
16 Revenge 606
17 Sacrifice 562
18 Hate 541
19 Requiem 522
20 Prelude 512

Not including words indicative of the type or location of song (numerals, untitled, Prelude, etc.), with exception to “The End”, which isn’t always the end song, and “Silence”, which I’m guessing mostly aren’t just silence.
