* For a bunch of gangsta rappers, the rap group Slaughterhouse likes to reference ''{{Voltron}}'' and comic books a whole lot in their lyrics. Joe Budden even compares himself to [[StreetFighter E. Honda]] at one point in a song.

* The RZA, of the Music/WuTangClan, is a gigantic comic book geek. Not only is there an entire chapter in ''The Wu-Tang Manual'' devoted to the influence of comics in the Wu-Tang mythos (actual quote: "When I started to form the Wu-Tang Clan -- around the end of my comics collection -- I stopped thinking of myself as ComicBook/SilverSurfer and I started to think I was ComicBook/{{Galactus}}"), he actually created his own superhero alter-ego, Bobby Digital, as whom he not only recorded multiple albums but ''actually strongly considered fighting crime as''. "I had the car and I had the suit. I was getting ready to go out at nighttime and right some wrongs. That was my plan -- like on some Green -Hornet shit." ''Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)'' is full of nerdy references, starting from the title, which is a reference to classical Kung Fu movie ''The 36 Chambers of Shaolin.'' In one song, the gang refers to the group as "{{Voltron}}, and RZA is the head".

* Creator/KurtCobain listened to many alternative rock bands before Music/{{Nirvana}} became famous and made it his duty to give these groups a shout-out now and then, so that they got more attention from the mainstream. Among the bands and artists he liked were Music/ThePixies (Cobain: "Without them Nirvana wouldn't exist."), Music/LedZeppelin, Music/TheBeatles, Music/DanielJohnston, Music/PJHarvey, Music/TheStooges, Music/SexPistols (The title of ''Music/{{Nevermind}}'' is a homage to ''Music/NeverMindTheBollocksHeresTheSexPistols''), Music/TheShaggs, Music/TheBreeders, Music/TheVaselines, Music/BadBrains, Music/TheRaincoats, Music/SonicYouth, Music/{{Boredoms}}, Music/{{Swans}}, Music/{{Kleenex}}, Music/TheSlits, Music/{{Leadbelly}}, Music/{{Mudhoney}}, Music/BeatHappening, Music/ButtholeSurfers, Music/PublicImageLtd, Music/DavidBowie, ''Wipers,'' Music/MazzyStar,...
** Cobain also loved the works of Literature/WilliamSBurroughs and struck a friendship with the author. It was in fact Burroughs who introduced Cobain to Music/{{Leadbelly}}, which gave us the marvelous cover "Where Did You Sleep Last Night?". Also, he was so obsessed with ''Literature/{{Perfume}}'' that the Nirvana song "Scentless Apprentice" was directly inspired by the novel. In the album credits of Music/InUtero he thanked author Patrick Süsskind, as well as Creator/QuentinTarantino.
