Falco

  • In 1986, Weird Al featured the song "Rock Me Amadeus" in his polka song "Polka Party."
  • In 1998, Rob and Ferdi Bolland (Dutch producers and co-writers of about half of Falco's albums) released the EP Tribute to Falco under the name "The Bolland Project feat. Alida." The title track featured samples of Falco's music; the other tracks were "We Say Goodbye" and "So Lonely."
  • In 1999, the Bloodhound Gang sampled "Rock Me Amadeus" in their song "Mope," referring to Falco as "that money making playa that ain't with us no mo," and a "gang bangin' thug that never seen it comin'."
  • In 2004, Mexican metal band Molotov released a tribute song for Falco called "Amateur (Rock Me Amadeus)" (in the Molotov comedy style).
  • In The Simpsons episode A Fish Called Selma Falco's tune "Rock Me Amadeus" receives a slightly offbeat tribute in the musical presentation of Planet of the Apes (starring Troy McClure). The repeated tag of "Amadeus Amadeus" is transferred into "Dr. Zaius, Dr. Zaius." A later episode, "Behind the Laughter," features Willie Nelson saying, "Thank you, Taco, for that loving tribute to Falco," as well as the very end of that fictional tribute.
  • A movie, Falco - Verdammt, wir leben noch!, was released in Austria on 7 February 2008, ten years and one day after Falco's death. This title is also the name of a posthumously-published album by Falco and roughly translates to "Damn it, we're still alive!" Written and directed by Thomas Roth, the movie features Manuel Rubey, who is a musician himself, as adult Johann 'Falco' Hölze.
  • Falco's good friend Niki Lauda named one of the Boeing airplanes in his Lauda Air fleet "Falco."[citation needed]
  • In Family Guy season 4 episode 6,"Rock Me Amadeus" was featured when a closeup of a tumor on Lois' brain was shown singing the words "I'm a tumor" to the tune of "Rock Me Amadeus."
  • In the the Fox tv series The Tick, the character Bat Manuel is overheard on the phone saying, "Si, Falco is dead. Amadeus Amadeus, he is a dead person."
