Trivia: Bob Seger
  • Black Sheep Hit: His version of "Shame on the Moon" (originally by country singer-songwriter Rodney Crowell) managed to get some airplay on country radio.
    • The Oscar-nominated "Shakedown", from the Beverly Hills Cop II soundtrack, was his only #1 despite sounding nothing like the rest of his music. In fact, it wasn't even supposed to be his song: it was originally given to Glenn Frey, but he lost his voice on the day of the session and Seger was called in as a replacement.
  • Creator Backlash / Keep Circulating the Tapes: Seger refuses to allow most of his early material (including the '60s garage-rock singles with the Last Heard and such albums as Noah, Brand New Morning, and Back in '72) to be officially reissued on CD.
  • Throw It In: The piano intro to "Old Time Rock and Roll" was only meant to be played once, but it ended up being played twice due to a missed cue.
