Every act that has had a Billboard Top 40 hit whose title included the name of a different recording act, that other act had at least one Top 40 hit at the same exact time. Some examples (not a complete list):
- 1964: The song We Love You Beatles by the Carefrees was on the charts while The Beatles had seven songs of their own in the Top 40.
- 1984-85: Rick Springfield had the minor hit Bruce while Bruce Springsteen was charting himself with Born in the U.S.A.
- 1987: Both the ABC song When Smokey Sings and Smokey Robinson‘s song One Heartbeat were in the Top 10 at the same time.
- 1992: Weird Al had the hit Smells Like Nirvana at the same time that Nirvana had the hit Come As You Are.
