Snappy title, eh?

Noticed this happening quite a lot - and it's not always dreadful.

Barenaked Ladies quote a bit of Housemartins’ Happy Hour in their track Hello City except it’s studio and not live, and I find that to be the apex of this particular artform.

Faith No More shove a bit of Pump Up The Jam in their Live at Brixton 1989 show. Similary godlike in their ability to randomy quote goofy, leftfield songs into their set. I can see them being the two heaviest heavy-hitters when it comes to this category.

If Stephen Page collabed with Faith No More and they all cross-dressed you would get Faith Ladies and if Jim Martin were to join the current Barenaked Ladies line-up you would get Barenaked No More?

I was at a Tears for Fears gig last night (stewarding) and they did this.  Can't recall the song now but it was very well known and not TFF.  Plus they played Creep.

I think Faith No More have to take the crown for this. Have a look at this timely article under ad-libs (and there's many others that aren't even included here).

The Manics do it a lot. Motown Junk normally starts with Baby Love being an obvious one. They also did it in the studio sometimes, with Dixie closing Elvis Impersonator.

Tears for Fears have had 'Creep' in the setlist since Radiohead supported them/him on a US tour back in the 1990s. Apparently, the Oxford lads were treated like shite by the TfF road crew and thought his version of the song was laughable as he changed the lyric to "I'm so fucking special". Surprised now they're a duo again that they still play it.

Sorry, my mistake - I was thinking you meant the Opus III sample.

From my hazy, drunken recollection of them at Hyde Park a couple of years back I believe they put a bit of Let 'Em In by Wings into one of their songs.

Elvis Costello - The Greatest Thing & The Smiths - Rusholme Ruffians both had Presley's His Latest Flame incorporated into them, as I recall.
