** "Rivers" was written to sound like a {{Weezer}} song, and its NonAppearingTitle refers to Weezer's Rivers Cuomo. The shout out was apparently appreciated; about ten years later, Rivers Cuomo wrote "Love Is The Answer" for Sugar Ray to perform, and appeared on their version of the song.

* The lyrics to Music/DaftPunk's "Teachers" are essentially a long list of artists who have influenced them: the majority are [=DJs=] and producers involved in techno or house music, but a few less expected names being checked are Music/BrianWilson, Dr. Dre, and GeorgeClinton.

* Boney M.'s famous "Oh, those Russians!" at the end of "Rasputin" is probably a shout-out to "Oh, those Turks!" in Eartha Kitt's performance of "Üsküdara" ("Kâtibim") - a Turkish folk song [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong the melody of which froms the core of "Rasputin"]].

* Mike Watt's ''Contemplating The Engine Room'' is a ConceptAlbum about working in a ship's engine room, which is meant as a metaphor for his experiences in TheMinutemen (among other things). Accordingly, when his AuthorAvatar narrator gives a long list of fellow crew members in "Topsiders", he actually uses the names of various people who had some connection to SST Records, the record label the band were on: Members of BlackFlag, Hüsker Dü and The Meat Puppets are named, as are people like frequent SST RecordProducer Spot, Black Flag roadie Mugger, and Black Flag and Minutemen cover artist Raymond Pettibon. The album also has a couple of references to "Fireman Hurley", who is clearly meant to be former Minutemen drummer George Hurley.

** "Hurley" is named as a shout out to former [[TheMinutemen Minutemen]] drummer George Hurley: [[NonAppearingTitle He's not actually mentioned anywhere in the lyrics]], but the song samples the drum beat from "It's Expected I'm Gone".

* Music/RedHotChiliPeppers' "Good Time Boys" includes several prominent references to other bands: Music/{{Fishbone}} ("Funk it up, Fishbone"), {{Music/X}} ("If you don't believe me just ask John Doe", along with a brief sample of "White Girl"), Music/TheMinutemen, and [=fIREHOSE=] ("He'll tell you in a '''minute''' about the '''men''' he knows / he'll tell you 'bout a band called [=fIREHOSE=]"). A line mentioning "the Watt towers" might also be an oblique reference to Mike Watt (who was in both The Minutemen and [=fIREHOSE=]).

* "Life Is a Rock (But the Radio Rolled Me)" by Reunion, in addition to being a SongOfSongTitles, drops ''tons'' of references from 50s, 60s and 70s pop culture. (Although the reference to UsefulNotes/JackTheRipper ''isn't'' a ShoutOut. Hopefully.) If you're interested, see the list at the end of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life_is_a_rock this article]] at TheOtherWiki or, perhaps better still, watch [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16kh-AP4OCU this video]].

* The video for ''Ghost'' by Music/MysterySkulls is a shout-out of TheExorcist, right down to the girl levitating off the bed.

* Music/KidRock referenced "Amazing Grace" in "Cowboy": "I once was lost, but now I'm just blind", combining that line and the next, "Was blind but now I see". "Cowboy" references [[Creator/WolfgangAmadeusMozart Amadeus Mozart]] and "Rock Me Amadeus" by Falco, and Beck's beer, Boone's wine, Four Seasons Hotel, Larry Flynt, and the Los Angeles Lakers.
