Too many to mention!

There are plenty more to choose from!

The Fall have done this a few times as well, don't specifically remember which songs though. There's also a Belle and Sebastian song that mentions the Velvet Underground, again can't remember which. It's on their first album I think.

"Your obsession gets you known throughout the school as being strange,
making life-size models of The Velvet Underground in clay"

Most people sell their soul to the devil, but the devil sells his soul to Nick Cave.

Jens Lekman rules.
"When she talked about about the fall / I thought she talked about Mark E. Smith / I never understood at all."
"When people think of Sweden I think they have the wrong idea / Like Cliff Richards who thought it was just porn and gonorrhea / And Lou Reed said in the film "Blue in the face" / That compared to New York City / Sweden was a scary place. / They seem to have a point after meeting with this girl / Maybe not Cliff Richards but Lou has surely met her."
I know several more, Hello Saferide, Mary Lou Lord, Tullycraft etc but I'm too lazy to look them all up.
