Share a song with the same name as another artist

Is there a song that you like whose title is also the name of another artist? If so, feel free to share!

 

One example that comes to mind is the song “35007,” from the psychedelic/stoner rock band Monkey3’s self-titled album:

While I’m not completely certain that this song was named after fellow psychedelic/stoner rock band 35007, it would seem like quite a coincidence if it wasn’t!

Here's one of the best. Bonzo Dog Band released this song in 1967:

Giving rise to this band thirty years later:

Thanks for sharing, @XPerryMental! This is a great example, and I had no idea that Death Cab for Cutie are named after this song by The Bonzo Dog Band. Cheers!

Cool topic @TreyAnastasio, I'll play along, although I don't have anything nearly as cool as @XPerryMental! I always wondered how DCFC came up with that name. 

Buffalo Tom with a song that happens to be the name of a favorite 90's emo band of mine:

Joe Satriani with a song that also happens to be the name of a favorite 90's shoegaze band of mine:

August Burns Red's Marianas Trench, also a band name (ok the band doesn't have an apostrophe, but, close enough!)

Before changing their name to The Appleseed Cast, they were originally called December's Tragic Drive, after a lyric from the (excellent) Sunny Day Real Estate song Seven:
