Coke vs. Pepsi in Song (Non-Commercial) Lyrics?

Question by Julep: Coke vs. Pepsi in song (non-commercial) lyrics?
I was listening to the radio the other day and two songs in a row came on that mentioned Coke or Coca-Cola (please note that I’m not talking about cocaine at all here).

I started thinking about it and started realizing that there sure are a lot of songs that mention Coca-Cola in some form or another.

Here are the ones I can think of… What songs can you think of that mention a soft drink (Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, etc)? Please share title, artist, and the refreshing lyric 🙂

Billy Currington – Good Directions
“I told her way up yonder past the caution light, there’s a little country store with an old Coke sign.”

Rascal Flatts – Mayberry
“Sitting on the porch drinking ice cold Cherry Coke. Where everything is black and white.”

Tim McGraw – Back When
“Back when a hoe was a hoe, Coke was a Coke, and crack’s what you were doing when you were cracking jokes.”

I know all mine are country, but I’d love to hear about others genres too…
Anyhow, it also occurred to me that I don’t hear them mentioning Pepsi often (if ever).

Also, please, I know there are a lot of rap/R&B songs that mention coke meaning the drug… please none of those, cause I know that was all I came up with when I googled Coke Lyrics.

DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince “Parents Just Don’t Understand” -“We hit McDonald’s, pulled into the drive
We ordered two Big Macs and two large fries with Cokes.”

The Beatles “Come Together” –
“He got monkey finger, he shoot Coca Cola”
(I suspect this is a drug reference, although they used the brand name)

Billy Joel “We Didn’t Start the Fire” –
“Rock and roller cola wars, I can’t take it anymore!”
(refers to both Pepsi and Coke, without actually naming them)

Alabama “When It All Goes South” –
“Eatin’ Moon Pies, drinking RC colas”
