Origins and Hidden Meanings -- Your Thoughts

Posted by: Anton Djamoos (02/18/09)
Did you know that the title of Gatsbys American Dream's "Meet Me at the Tavern in Bowerstone" is a reference to the video game Fable? Did you know that Set Your Goals references Something Corporate songs at the end of their "To Be Continued"? Did you know that the band Millencolin got their name from a skateboarding trick? Did you catch mewithoutYou's Aaron Weiss referencing a "brownish spider" before "The Spider and the Lamps" in Razia's Shadow?

There are tons of hidden meanings to songs or little nods to contemporaries in music all around. What are some of these cool little origins/"Easter Eggs" that you know of that others may not? Are there any other interesting facts that are unbeknownst to most that you could share?

Also... GAD's "Fable" is pretty much Lord of the Flies.

I love Gatsby's American Dream. Every other line of their lyrics is a reference to something.

I'm also a HUGE fan of this...

F the haters of this album. I love Lights & Sounds.

I'm not invested enough in pop culture to get most of these unless they are pointed out.
