Name That Band Who Names That Band!
An interesting segue of songs presented itself on the iPod during this morning's commute:
Brand New - Mix Tape
Bloodhound Gang - Your Only Friends Are Make Believe
Ben Folds Five - Battle of Who Could Care Less
Now, what do these songs have in common (despite the obvious 'all the bands begin with B' thing)?
They all mention other bands in their lyrics.
Brand New: I'm sick of your tattoos and they way you always criticize the Smiths, and Morrisey
BHG: Eat spam from the can, watch late night C-Span, rock out to old school Duran Duran
BFF: See I've got your old ID, and you're all dressed up like The Cure
Which got me thinking, what are some other songs like this, where the artists mentions other bands/musicians in the lyrics?
Update: I was thinking more along the lines of songs that insert a band/musician in an irreverent way, like above, and not as part of a shout-out (or a shout-down).
