"Is that a cheat code? Naming your song after someone who's more famous than you?"
— Graydon from HIVEMIND

A music trope, where a band or singer names one of their songs after a notable celebrity, either living or dead. The song is not usually about the celebrity, and they may or may not be referenced in the lyrics. The celebrity's name is usually used as either a byword for an ideal, a metaphor, or as a comparison. May overlap with Celebrity Elegy and Celebrity Break-Up Song.
