    Not at all. I don't care either way.

    That's a lyrical pet peeve of mine: lyrics consisting of a lot of name-drops / shout-outs to other musicians. It's just so cheesy. Eric Burdon's "Monterey" is a typical example, maybe one of the first that got on my nerves. A snippet:

    The Byrds and the Airplane did fly
    Oh, Ravi Shankar's music made me cry
    The Who exploded into fire and light
    Hugh Masekela's music was black as night
    The Grateful Dead blew everybody's mind
    Jimi Hendrix, baby, believe me,
    set the world on fire, yeah​

    Gag. The only song I can stand of that type is Funkadelic's "Let's Take It To The Stage," where the shout-outs are more along the lines of good-natured rank-outs or call-outs / challenges to other funk artists like "Fool and the Gang," "Earth, Hot Air and No Fire," and "Godfather? Godmother!"
