Cowboy Bebop and Rock and Roll?

Has anyone ever noticed that several of the episode titles for Cowboy Bebop are named after old rock and roll songs? Here are some examples,

Honkey Tonk Woman is the name of a song done by The Stokes,
Sympathy for the Devil....a Guns n Roses song.
Bohemian Rhapsody....done by Queen
Cowboy Bebop movie: Knockin on Heavens Door... a Leanard Skynner song.

Is this all just coincidence or is there some mysteious meaning behind this? Also if anyone has any more examples, please share

Actually it's not a coincidence at all. The song names and references all apply to the groovy rock n' roll theme of cowbow bebop. Sound is good in Cowboy bebop. If you want to find out more about the series just click here.

Sympathy for the devil was originally done by the Rolling Stones

Knockin' on Heaven's Door was originally done by (i think not 100% on this one) Bob Dylan and has been redone countless times.
