    I thought of this the other day after hearing 3 MCs and one DJ by The Beastie Boys, the first line was "Because nobody can do it like Mixmaster can, come on!"

    Anyone else hear anything like this? Red Alert by Basement Jaxx, for example?

    Are you looking for "intentional" refrances to Transformers??

    Because the Beasties were talking about "Mix Master" which is a nick name for the guy on the turn tables.

    I forgot the name of the song and the artist, but it's a hip-hop song:

    "My dick is mega-long like mega-tron."

    Full name of the guy is Mix Master Mike. I too am a bit confused. Intentional or unintentional refs?

    If we start posting all the hip hop and rap lyrics that reference transformers we will be here literally forever.

    "Now here's a story that should not be forgot, about the time my dj turned into an Autobot, he got struck by lightning in an electrical storm, he got on wheels of steel and began to transform!" - Fresh Prince and DJ Jazzy Jeff, "The Magnificent Jazzy Jeff"

    I remember a few years ago I heard a band named PlanBe do a song about the battle of Autobot City, but damned if I can find anything about it now.


    Both are references to a mixing machine, as in a baking apparatus, IIRC.

    In the song it's a reference to a scratch solo their DJ, Mix Master Mike, proceeds to lay down. His nick is in reference to his mastery of beat and bass mixes.
