* The second verse of the "Rockstar" parody "[[http://daibhid-c.livejournal.com/7040.html?thread=15744 I Wanna Be A Folk Star]]" references "Been On This Road So Long" by Alex Campbell, "Dirty Old Town" by Ewan [=MacColl=], "Scarborough Fair" (trad, best known by the SimonAndGarfunkel version), "Loch Lomond" (also trad, best known version maybe Runrig), "And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda" by EricBogle, "No Telling" by Linda Thompson and "Caledonia" by Dougie Maclean.
* Music/LimpBizkit has [[TakeThat a negative one]] of NineInchNails titles in "Hot Dog" - primarily because Fred Durst [[BrokenPedestal was a fan of the band, but Trent Reznor criticized his]].

* Music/TheGaslightAnthem does this a lot, often to Music/BruceSpringsteen (a major influence of theirs). For instance, "Meet Me By the River's Edge" references "No Surrender" ("no surrender my Bobby Jean") among others; "Wherefore Art Thou, Elvis?" has a shout out to LeonardCohen's "Hallelujah" ("it's a broken hallelujah and a pain in my fist").
