Weirdly, I’m currently watching the 4th season of JoJo’s bizarre adventure, which has characters named after musicians. This season has a character’s power that’s named “Moody Blues”… although for some reason in the subtitles on Netflix, they can’t use that (copyright weirdness) so it’s called “Moody Jazz” instead?
