* [=UFO=]'s "Doctor, Doctor" has an incredibly obvious shout out to Music/LedZeppelin in its "Livin', Lovin'" chorus, although they make it sound original by taking it in a different direction. They also reference a band playing "[[JimiHendrix Little Wing]]", and have an album with the incredibly Springsteen-ish title ''The Wild, the Willing, and the Innocent''.

** From the same album, "Receive" includes the lyrics "Grow my hair long and strange / I'll be a walking mountain range", which is similar to lyrics from "I Shall Be Free No. 10" by BobDylan.

* The title of Velvet Crush's ''Teenage Symphonies To God'' is a shout out to TheBeachBoys - Brian Wilson was frequently quoted as describing the never released ''Smile'' as "A teenage symphony to God". They also called a compilation ''A Single Odessey'' as a shout out to The Zombies' ''Odessey And Oracle'' (note that both titles spell "odyssey" the same way).

* Peter, Paul and Mary's "I Dig Rock-And-Roll Music" directly references by name, The Mamas and the Papas and "California Dreaming" and indirectly references their drug habits (John Phillips would, years later, admit he gave drugs to his daughter [=McKenzie=]), by mentioning how he could really get on the scene that the Mamas and the Papas were into, but he couldn't flat out admit what it was because "if I really say it, the radio won't play it." Donovan and TheBeatles are also name-dropped in the same song.

** "Terminal Eyes" is a deliberate imitation of "[[TheBeatles I Am the Walrus]]." The liner notes dedicate the song to "egg-men everywhere."

** And, of course, "Pork and Beans" -- while the song itself is mostly {{Take That}}s to the mainstream (Timbaland is even mentioned by name), the video is ''filled'' with {{Shout Out}}s to [[MemeticMutation Youtube memes]], with a lot of Internet celebrities personally appearing in original footage.
** "Devotion" includes a somewhat obscure {{Kiss}} reference: Rivers Cuomo mentions being "no six foot, hot look, all American man" in that song, whereas in "All American Man", Paul Stanley refers to himself as "a six foot, hot look, all American man".
* Music/WeirdAlYankovic directly quotes a verse of the ''GilligansIsland'' theme in "Amish Paradise": "No phone, no lights, no motorcars, not a single luxury. Like Robinson Crusoe, it's as primitive as can be". Also, "[[Music/{{Prince}} Tonight we're gonna party like it's 1699"]].

* The Finnish metal band Music/{{Lordi}} has the song "Bringing Back The Balls To Rock", which contains numerous references to Eighties rock, and one single's cover art is {{KISS}}'s ''Creatures of the Night'' cover, but with them instead.

* ShoutOut/{{Space}}



* It's easier to name a Music/{{Space}} song which ''doesn't'' have some kind of ShoutOut in it, usually to fictional characters or celebrities. 'Charlie M' and 'A Liddle Biddy Help From [[Music/ElvisPresley Elvis]]' are two particular examples which spring to mind.
