** Chiba's afro is a ShoutOut to RageAgainstTheMachine frontman Zack de la Rocha. The two have a number of similarities, from the way they look to the rapping used in their songs.

** The rail platform where [[spoiler:Maho and Koyuki have their reunion]] happens to be the exact same platform in Dartford where Mick Jagger and Keith Richards had their famous reunion in 1961, a meeting that eventually led to the formation of the RollingStones.

* EgocentricTeamNaming: When the main characters are trying to come up with a name for their band, lead guitarist Ryuusuke spends a moment on the floor writing ideas. When he's finished, he holds it up proudly, and every suggestion contains his name, like [[JimiHendrix "The Ryuusuke Experience"]] and so on. Of course, no one was impressed, though the fangirls that hang around them were amused.

* AuthorAppeal: Creator Harold Sakuishi is a very big fan of the RedHotChiliPeppers, so it's no surprise that Taira is pretty much modeled after RHCP bassist Flea.

** Taira is one to RedHotChiliPeppers bassist Flea, from the playing style to the bleached hair. Pretty much expected since Sakuishi is apparently a big RedHotChiliPeppers fan.

* BlandNameProduct: The Anime is full of them, the characters shirts often have Band names usually with one letter swapped, like [[ThePixies The Pixis]], [[TheRamones The Rammones]], [[TheWho Tho Who]], also a common one is Samsang. Episode 5 features a bottle of Dack Janiels.

** As a matter of fact, we learn in the manga that, of the five members of BECK, Ryusuke is ''the only one who can speak English'', which leads to loads of lost-in-translation when they go to the USA. And it's rather ironic, since Chiba sings mostly in English. So he wouldn't have a clue of what the songs mean if Ryusuke didn't explain (assuming that he did)?
*** It's possible that Chiba knows some (and he raps mostly in Japanese, by the way). We see that Taira later gets to learn as well, leaving only Saku (who is frequently asking "What's he saying?" to Taira) and Koyuki lost in translation.

*** Pretty much expected since Sakuishi is apparently a big RedHotChiliPeppers fan.
** The name BECK is more than likely an obvious reference to the musician of the same name.
*** Considering the [[ThemeNaming naming conventions]] for pets in the series, such as the cockatoo [[Music/LedZeppelin Page]] and the other dog [[Music/KeithRichards Keith]], it's more likely BECK's named after Jeff Beck from Music/TheYardbirds.
*** This becomes unfortunate when Funimation was (eventually) forced to rename their release of the anime, allegedly because the real {{Music/Beck}} complained.

** It should be noted that BECK plays both more technically challenging music than Belle Ame as well as more sonically pleasing music. I don't know if this is an aversion of the trope but it should be noted.

** Particularly weird when it results in a band that [[InkSuitActor the anime uses actual The Pillows songs for the performances of]], but it's not actually supposed to be ThePillows.
*** Actually that band is called "the Heroes" which when written in Japanese katakana is almost the same as the "the pillows" except for an accent mark, so its more of a {{Captain Ersatz}} situation.
*** Does Koyuki's dream (which the others also had) count here?

Added DiffLines:

* AllDrummersAreAnimals: Averted. Saku is probably one of the most calm and rational members of the cast.
