How could they stick American Pie in with this big list of "OMG this one might be about a celebrity!!!" songs? American Pie really *is* a coded reference to several events in rock history, including but not limited to the Buddy Holly/Richie Valens plane crash, Bob Dylan's motorcycle crash ("the jester was in a sideline in a cast" line), and Altamont.

On the other hand, they should have but did not include Alanis Morrisette's "You Oughta Know", which is supposedly about Full House star Dave Coulet.
