Bob Dylan is a legendary folk musician whose music has inspired countless artists throughout the time since his popularity. His music has been successfully covered by such artists as Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, The Byrds, and Peter, Paul, and Mary. His epic song Like A Rolling Stone was chosen as the "greatest song of all time" by Rolling Stone Magazine, for obvious reasons. The Band was his backing group. The song Rainy Day Women caused controversy due to the line "They'll stone you.". The Times, They Are A-Changin' has become a counterculture staple. Real name Robert Allen Zimmerman.
Weird Al Yankovic parodied Dylan with his song Bob. In the song, every line is a palindrome. The video is based on that to Dylan's Subterranean Homesick Blues.
Popular internet cartoon Homestar Runner has referenced Dylan several times.
