* {{Evanescence}} produced "Call Me When You're Sober" as a commentary on lead singer Amy Lee's recently-ended relationship with Music/{{Seether}} lead Shaun Morgan. Seether responded with "Breakdown" telling Shaun's side of the story - the title itself an obvious reference to the song "Broken" which both sang in while they were together.

* Punk act Against Me! wrote a song called "I Was a Teenage Anarchist," expressing the want to change the world but disappointment at finding the scene to be too hot-tempered and rigid, with the chorus "Do you remember when you were young and you wanted to set the world on fire?" Rise Against, in turn, wrote "Architects," expressing disappointment at a youth scene that seems too diffident and uncertain, with the line, "Don't you remember when you were young and you wanted to set the world on fire? 'Cause I still am, and I still do."

* The Pirates' "I Already Know" (feat. Enya, Shola Ama, Naila Boss & Ishani) is an answer to "I Don't Wanna Know" by Mario Winans feat. Enya and P. Diddy.


Added DiffLines:

* Mario Winans' plaintive R&B ballad "I Don't Wanna Know" - the 2004 single which, due to copyright law dealing with sampling of other tracks, hilariously co-credits both P. Diddy and {{Enya}} - is sung by a man who suspects his girlfriend is cheating and just prays that she keep it secret because if he discovered it for sure it would break his heart. Shola Ama came back with a devastating response from the woman's perspective called "You Should Really Know," the gist of which was that if the guy was so in tune with the woman and so invested in the relationship he should know her damn well enough to know that she's not cheating. Oh, snap.
%%Merge with previous example: * The Pirates' "I Already Know" (feat. Enya, Shola Ama, Naila Boss & Ishani) is an answer to "I Don't Wanna Know" by Mario Winans feat. Enya and P. Diddy.
