    Diamond is Unbreakable and Vento Aureo (part 4 & 5) don't have music references related to character's names.

    Stone Ocean (Part 6):

    *Foo Fighters is both a character name and a stand name as it is a stand made of phytoplankton that develops a consiousness

    List of Musical References by Stand Name:

    Stardust Crusaders (Part 3) is the first part with Stands Stands are magic soul Pokemon things that are bonded to a persons life force and is unique to them with powers ranging from fire creation to actual time and space distortion.
