* "You're my [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Angel out of Tokyo-3]]." First off, due to HypeAversion and InternetBackdraft, comparing ''anything'' to "Evangelion" is probably not good. Also, that implies that the girl is an EldritchAbomination dripping in [[FreudWasRight Freudian]] and [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic Religious]] symbolism, quite likely to turn around and MindRape you at any point in time.

[[WMG: Dr. Dre is [[{{Satan}] the Devil]]]]
Both Music/{{Eminem}} and Music/SnoopDogg have rapped about selling their souls for success. Snoop Dogg wrote a whole song about it, entitled "Murder Was the Case" In a throway lyric Eminem declares that he's sold his soul and will never get it back. Other than the rappers themselves, Dr. Dre is arguably single handidly responsible for their lasting success. Ergo: Dr. Dre is the Devil. He's the entity that met Music/RobertJohnson on a crossroads. He evidently decided if he was going to give out musical talent in exchange for souls, he might as well produce as well. It's not clear whether Dre is actually Lucifer himself or merely another demonic entity in charge of soul for musical success trades.

After Wilco had a moderate fanbase, Tweedy somehow tricked Time Warner, which owns Warner Bros., into merging with AmericaOnline and forcing it to cut costs. This included firing Klein. The new president didn't want to pay for the new album, ''Yankee Hotel Foxtrot,'' so Tweedy raised an uproar about it and sold the album to ''yet another'' different division of Warner Bros., Nonesuch Records. The resulting news coverage caused loads of critics to notice the album and they proceeded to dump massive praise on the record. Yankee Hotel Foxtrot is still their best-selling album.
** Having accomplished this, he's now masterminding [[GenerationXerox The Blisters']] rise. Which at the moment consists mainly of holding them back - a Lollapalooza appearance and TV commercial was one thing while they were still little kids, but now that they're teenagers they've throttled back to [[http://spencertweedy.com/5853/what-i-like-to-think-of-as-our-homage-to-the-basement-tapes.html audio-only tracks on Spencer's blog]] and the occasional local Chicago appearance, the idea being to avoid at all costs a BoyBand image and the inevitable {{Hatedom}} that leads to. Given the examples since 2005-06 of not only Series/TheNakedBrothersBand (the closest analogue), but the JonasBrothers and Music/JustinBieber, that {{Hatedom}} would've become a black hole destroying not only any indie cred the kids might hope ever to have, but that of Tweedy senior and Wilco itself. Keeping a low profile till they get through HighSchool = wise move.

Same initials; deprecating music videos (just like what Warner Music Group did to Website/YouTube); insulting Kid Rock (in revenge for Kid Rock slamming Atlantic Records); thinking Dragonforce is God (they are signed to Warner Bros. Records); there are many other examples right on this page. And odds are good that some people here edit TheOtherWiki [[Music/WeirdAlYankovic saying Weird Al sucks]].

** And WMG/BohemianRhapsody, WMG/SouljaBoy, and WMG/TheProtomen. Actually, Bohemian Rhapsody was disowned by this page because Queen switched record labels from Elektra, part of Warner Music Group, to Capitol (and then to Hollywood).

The music video for Take On Me tells a true story, albeit in a more romantic and poetic way. All back-stories of the band members are fabricated. They were originally pencil sketches in an unpublished comic book starring them as band members who lead secret lives as motorcycle racers, but became self-aware and broke the fourth wall to escape their comic book. This explains why they're ridiculously hot, they never age, Morten Harket's angelic singing voice, and the fact that they have PowerTrio personalities. After escaping from the comic book, they decided to continue on as a band and have hinted at the fact that they ''are'' comic book characters in several of their music videos.

[[WMG: The child in "Cats in the Cradle" has inherited his father's personality.]]
It's genetic, nothing to do with the father neglecting him. They're both just natural introverts more comfortable working than interacting with their family.

[[WMG: "Unfaithful" and "Take a Bow" tell the same story from different points of view]]
Many people are bothered by the [[TheUnfairSex double standard caused by looking at the two songs together.]] This could be resolved if they're two different sides to the same story, but one of them is gender flipped so it still makes sense for Rihanna to sing it. The cuckholded partner from "Unfaithful" finally stood up for themselves and kicked the cheating partner out, refusing to accept excuses in "Take a Bow."
