Musicians Who Named A Song After A Celebrity Gorillaz Clint Eastwood

Universal Music Group

There are many actors and directors, aspiring and famous, who would count Clint Eastwood as a source of inspiration. But a band? That is more unexpected. In 2001, the Gorillaz paid tribute to the legend on their self-titled debut album. The “Clint Eastwood” song was actually the band’s first single. The reason for the song’s title is because it’s similar to the theme of Clint’s 1966 spaghetti western The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. If you’re wondering, there were no comments from the director-actor about what he thought of the song. We wonder what he would think of the lines, “You have it or you don’t, that’s a fallacy / I’m in them / Every sprouting tree / Every child of peace / Every cloud and sea.”
