Bands That Mention Their Own Band Names in Lyrics

Post by theraven1979 » 27 Jan 2011, 17:20

Sometimes it's pretty cheesey but sometimes it can sound cool

The Clash - We Are the Clash
BAD - BAD
Big Country - In A Big Country


Doesn't have to be in the song title either.

Any more - must be loads
