The internet almost broke when director J.J. Abrams announced the cast for “Star Wars: Episode VII.” Shortly thereafter, our pal Perry Eaton from BDCwire put together this handy-dandy guide to the non-Mark Hamill/Carrie Fisher/Harrison Ford cast members, which certainly is worth a look. Now, I’m not the type of Star Wars nerd who boasts an encyclopedic knowledge of the films, but I am the type of Star Wars nerd who’s seen the first three films an absurd number of times and I’m pretty excited about the prospect of an Episode VII. And I’m a music nerd by profession, so I got to thinking about where the two intersect, and that led to this list. I hope you enjoy it.

1. Wu Tang Clan “Get Them Out Ya Way Pa”
That’s U-God with the Death Star reference, son.

2. Taking Back Sunday “A Decade Under The Influence”
“I’ve got a bad feeling about this…” Sound familiar?

3. Supernova “Chewbacca”
From the “Clerks” Soundtrack, remember? Hell, there was even a scene in the movie about Star Wars.

4. Nerf Herder “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”
Cripes, the band named themselves after a Star Wars reference. And yeah, they’re the band responsible for the “Buffy” theme.

5. Kool Keith
I’d be willing to bet Keith originally titled the song “Darth Vader,” but was advised by his legal team to tweak it so he wouldn’t get his wig sued off.

6. Junior Senior “Move Your Feet”
Pay close attention to the video and you’ll see the squirrel pull a Vader.

7. Jamiroquai “Cosmic Girl”
Sure, they have a song called “Use The Force,” but this one has waaaay more Star Wars references.

8. The Hold Steady “The Swish”
“I did a couple favors / for some guys who looked like Tuscan Raiders.” Yeah you did, Greg.

9. Bloodhoung Gang
“Cause I’m kinda like Han Solo / always stroking my own Wookie.” Only the Bloodhoung Gang would write a line like that.

10. Blink 182 “A New Hope”
A) It’s called “A New Hope.”
B) It’s about Princess Leia.

11. Aquabats “Playdough”
Shoutouts to nine Star Wars characters. See if you get ’em all.

12. “Weird Al” Yankovic “Yoda”
Clearly, the list starts here.
