Ehh references like that kind of bug me. Kinda the same way anything about texting in a song annoys me, and that's been around for a long time. But I'm getting old so take that with a grain of salt, you kids and your newfangled technobabble lol.
Bad Religion has songs that reference Gorbachev and that song (atomic garden) still rules. All art is created in a time and place. Doesn't really bother me.
