Some bootlegs are titled "bootleg", but many avoid this term in order to reduce the likelihood that they will be flagged for copyright infringement.

Sometimes the bootleg might be titled with a title completely unrelated. These titles go through trends, such as titling after memes. For example, the title of a show followed by "Slime Tutorial" is a popular bootleg title.

Other times they're synonyms or related terms; Checkers for Chess the Musical, or TapDancing Eggs for Something Rotten.
