* HeavyMetal band Zimmers Hole named their album ''When You Were Shouting At The Devil... We Were In League With Satan'' after two metal albums from the eighties, Music/MotleyCrue's ''Shout At The Devil'' and Venom's ''In League With Satan''. It supposedly came out of a band member overhearing an argument about who was "more metal" and turned into a band in-joke; Since Venom were considered more "underground" than Motley Crue, the title translates to "when you were a poseur, I was the real deal".

* 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 Music/{{Minutemen}} (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.

* Numerous shout outs in Music/DoctorSteel's body of work. His song "The Dr. Steel Show" mentions and contains the tune of "[[Theatre/SouthPacific Bali Ha'i]]", referencing his secret island base. It also contains part of the tune of ''Series/HRPufnstuf'' (which also takes place on a mystical island). ''Spaceboy'' samples ''Music/AlsoSprachZarathustra''. The end of his song, ''Lullabye-bye'', contains the beginning of the Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This". The opening lines of his song, ''Ode to Revenge'', are a very twisted version of Nat King Cole's "Nature Boy". The song "Series/LandOfTheLost", itself an {{Homage}} to the Sid and Marty Krofft show, has a literal shout out, with a sample of Rita Moreno's "HEY YOU GUYS!" from ''Series/TheElectricCompany1971''.

* The main lyric of "Magic Carpet Ride" (no relation to the Steppenwolf song) by Mighty Dub Katz is a reference to "White Horse" by Laid Back: "If you wanna get high, get on my carpet ride. If you wanna get rich, you gotta pay like it's a bitch."
