The Dead Reference Scrolls

I know there's some younger folks here. Does anyone realize that "Heeeeere's Johnny!" isn't actually a reference to The Shining but actually a reference to the old Tonight Show with Johnny Carson?

I'm just real curious about how and when slang or references from history start to disappear. Especially when it's closer, latter-half 20th century pop culture stuff.

Like calling someone a spaz? I know that's been gone forever, but when the heck did it actually go. Is it something like everyone wooke up one day and said that's it? Because it seems like it.

Anyways, anyone know any other good dead references?
Are there any that have come and gone since we hit 2000?
