* A pet hate for Music/{{Hawkwind}} are gig-attenders who loudly and continually demand their 1972 hit ''Silver Machine''. The band are keen to point out that while that might have been their [[OneHitWonder only single hit]] and concede that it was a good song, they ''have'' done a lot of other stuff since, and they'd quite like to play a few of those, if you don't mind. Hawkwind have even used a set of parody lyrics about a washing machine to get it out of the way and to point out the song belongs a long way in their past, when the vast majority of current band members weren't even trhere.
* "Wake Me Up When September Ends" by Music/GreenDay spawned a meme where the internet community joked about "waking Green Day" up come October 1. Green Day has pointed out the insensitivity of this meme; the song is about Billie Joe losing his father at the age of 10 and how he coped with the loss by locking himself in his room and telling his mother he won't come out until the end of September. It came to the point where Green Day had to tell fans to stop doing it.

* Creator/WilWheaton has joked that people have put their kids through college with how much money the fans made selling homemade t-shirts emblazoned with "[[TakeThatScrappy Shut up, Wesley]]!". However, in 2016, Wil said that he insta-bans people who write "Shut up, Wesley!" to him on Twitter, even if it's in jest.

*** WhiteWolf's ''TabletopGame/TheWorldOfDarkness'' games mention this in many of their Storyteller handbooks. In fact, they even tell you how to deal with a player who is an obsessive quoter.
