* ShootTheTelevision: After seeing a show mocking him for being kicked out of the Be Sharps, a furious Wiggum shoots his TV four times. Subverted in that not only does he miss them all, but it turns out he thought he was holding the remote (which was in his gun holster) and wanted to change the channel. When it further becomes clear that [[YourTelevisionHatesYou his TV hates him]], he ''throws'' his gun at it and shatters the screen.

* AsHimself: David Crosby and Music/GeorgeHarrison
* AbbeyRoadCrossing: The cover of "Bigger Than Jesus" is a direct parody.
* BackstoryOfTheDay: As per usual with many flashback episodes, with Homer revealing his short time as a superstar, that was seemingly forgotten about and never mentioned prior to this episode (with the kids even Lampshading this heavily at the end of the episode). This likely counts as an AssPull, though it may reference John Lennon's own attempts to hide his stardom from his child until he came across some merchandise.

* BiggerThanJesusTheBandMinusTheFace: The Be-Sharps' career trajectory mirrors that of Music/TheBeatles, including the popular Chief Wiggum's replacement by the far more talented Barney Gumble and the group's rise to pop stardom with Barney in the lineup.
