The New Zealand pop star Lorde revealed that her 2021 comeback single "Solar Power
" was inspired by this song. Speaking to Apple Music
, Lorde explained: "I had my little Yamaha DX keyboard, and I just started singing and kind of figuring this thing out. I was like, 'What is this?' It almost felt like 'Rock DJ' to me, the Robbie Williams song. I was like, 'I don't know what's going on here, but I love it.'"
Lorde even references "Rock DJ" in the lyrics when she sings, "Can I kick it? Yeah, I can."
