The only two I know are The Clash one & I believe No.5 is the wonderful Billy Bragg with his song 'Sexuality' which has a line referring to Red Star Belgrade

As for the rest I haven't a clue !

Indeed, I am reliably informed that he is rather partial to a slice or two of Fray Bentos (over brands are available) for his supper :-D

.................and also of course, as I'm sure you're well aware the Stereophonics drummer, Javier Weyler is Argentinian

Spot on 64 - contains the lyric "I once had an uncle who played for Red Star Belgrade"

Nightmare trying to find any musical links/references for Croatia and Serbia
