** "So You Want To Be A Rock 'N' Roll Star" is often called a TakeThat to Franchise/TheMonkees, but they've denied it and said that it was more of an amused reaction to how easily new bands could be hyped into popularity in TheSixties.[[note]]They had no particular problem with The Monkees, and Mike Nesmith even sat in with them on guitar at a few concerts[[/note]]

* OnceAnEpisode: The Byrds' early albums all featured a humorous, quirky ending song: ''Music/MrTambourineMan'' concluded with an ironic cover of VeraLynn's "We'll Meet Again" (inspired by its usage in ''Film/DrStrangelove''), ''Turn! Turn! Turn!'' ended with a tongue-in-cheek send-up of the folk song "Oh! Susannah", and ''Fifth Dimension'' finished with "2-4-2 Fox Trot (The Lear Jet Song)", which features a catchy groove with minimal lyrics [[GratuitousPanning panned hard right]] while the left channel includes sound effects depicting a plane taking off. The tradition ended with ''Younger Than Yesterday'', but was temporarily resurrected for ''Ballad Of Easy Rider'' through "Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins", a light-hearted meditation on the Apollo 11 moon landing.

* ThrowItIn: On "Hickory Wind" (''Sweetheart of The Rodeo'') someone coughs right after Gram Parsons sings "in South Carolina".

[[caption-width-right:350:The classic line-up of The Byrds, From left to right: Chris Hillman, [[Music/CrosbyStillsNashYoung David Crosby]], Michael Clarke, Roger [=McGuinn=] and Gene Clark.]]

'''The Byrds''' were a band active in TheSixties who were the {{Trope Maker}}s for the genre of [[FolkMusic Folk Rock]] (alongside Music/SimonAndGarfunkel), although they experimented with different genres throughout their career such as PsychedelicRock and CountryMusic. The band was formed initially as a duo comprised of Jim (later Roger) [=McGuinn=] and Gene Clark as guitarists and singers. Third guitarist [[Music/CrosbyStillsNashYoung David Crosby]] soon joined up, and the Byrds was born. Drummer Michael Clarke (recruited partly because of his resemblance to [[Music/TheRollingStones Brian Jones]]) and bassist Chris Hillman joined shortly after the formation. Thus, the "classic" Byrds line-up was born. Thanks to their manager Jim Dickson's connections, they got signed to Creator/ColumbiaRecords.
