View Full Version : Bands paying tribute to other bands...

I like the seemingly recent trend of artists paying tribute to other artists by mentioning them in their songs. Satisfies the music nerd in me that bands I like like other bands I like.

Post here songs that mention other artists.

I will start:

Daft Punk - Teachers
LCD Soundsystem - Daft Punk is Playing at my House
CSS - Let's Make Love (and Listen to Death From Above)
Vampire Weekend - Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa

Final Fantasy - This is the Dream of Win and Regine
Belle and Sebastian - The Boy With the Arab Strap

I suppose that the numerous Jeff Buckley tributes count:

PJ Harvey - Memphis
Rufus Wainwright - Memphis Skyline
Chris Cornell - Wave Goodbye
The Frames - Neath the Beeches
