Favourite song that's a tribute to another musician?

What's your favourite song that the artist wrote as a tribute to another musician?

Mine's "You Can't Kill Joey Ramone" by Sloppy Seconds. The beginning of the second verse is my favourite:

"Well you can burn your leather jacket

Take the headphones off your head

And you can throw away your records

‘Cause rock and roll is dead"
