* The back cover of Music/FrankBlack's BSide album ''Oddballs'' puts parenthetical notes about which artist a song was meant to sound like: Multiple songs are labeled as "trying to be [[Music/TheClash Strummer]]" or "Trying to be [[Music/BobDylan Dylan]]", "Village Of The Sun is labeled "trying to be [[Music/BruceSpringsteen Springsteen]] AND Dylan", and "Man Of Steel" is apparently a self-pastiche, labeled "trying to be me".

A ''pastiche'' is a work done [[InTheStyleOf in the style of]] another artist. It may reflect a single work by a single artist, or a body of work by one or more artists, or even an entire genre. The difference between a FanFic, which reuses characters or settings from another work, and a pastiche, is that the pastiche copies the ''tone'' and ''flavor'' of its original. A work can, of course, be both a FanFic ''and'' a pastiche, but pastiche is all about the style.

*** In "Krusty Gets Kancelled", Krusty is forced to briefly replace it with ''Worker and Parasite'', "[[UsefulNotes/SovietUnion Eastern Eurppe]]'s favorite cat and mouse team" -- a surreal style parody of Soviet animation.

* ''Fanfic/TheLegendOfTotalDramaIsland'' (LTDI) is a pastiche of ''[[Literature/ArabianNights The Book of the Thousand and One Nights]]'', specifically the Mardrus & Mathers translation. Although ''The 1,001 Nights'' is a prose work, some of the component stories have a good deal of poetry. LTDI somewhat duplicates this feel by insertion of (mostly famous) poems at various points where they fit or enhance the scene's mood. These poems are usually part of the narrative, but characters occasionally recite them in-universe.

*** "Countdown to TV Action", a short story from ''Short Trips and Sidesteps'', is a {{Pastiche}} of the ridiculous, [[TheyJustDidntCare canon-inaccurate]] TV Comics ''Doctor Who'' strips. Complete with the character being named "Dr Who", being [[{{Jerkass}} gratuitously sexist and mean]], making staggering and implausible {{Bat Deduction}}s "because he's a scientist", and the generally cosy and childish tone.
