The story has many similarities to Music/FrankZappa's ''Joe's Garage'': both feature robot-filled futures with moral overlords who hate rock-and-roll and throw the rocker protagonist in prison. Zappa's work is distinguished by having trickier time signatures, as well as much more [[{{Robosexual}} gay sex with robots]]. You could almost mistake ''Joe's Garage'' for a parody of ''Kilroy Was Here'', but for the fact that ''Joe's'' came out '''four years earlier'''.
