Queen took the title of the movie and used it as an album title, and put the song Bohemian Rhapsody on it.
Al turned it into Bohemian Polka.

Syd Barrett played with David Gilmour in Pink Floyd.
David Gilmour worked with Paul McCartney on the album Run Devil Run in 1999.
Paul McCartney met Weird Al at a party, and refused him permission to record "Chicken Pot Pie" (although not at the party).

"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

The song "Dirty Frank" by Pearl Jam is a song about "Dirty Frank Dahmer" who keeps cupboards full of human corpses to use as ingredients.
Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam performed on the soundtrack to I Am Sam, which also features Ben Folds.
Al sings backup vocals on Ben's song Time.

New rule: You can only use parodies, polkas, or tv shows/movies as links. None of this "mentioning" stufs, or the poor link that Barney Slayer provided.
