David Vaughan Icke (pronounced "IKE" /aɪk/) (born April 29, 1952) is a British writer and public speaker who has devoted himself since 1990 to researching "who and what is really controlling the world."
On 26 December 2006, the British television channel Five broadcast "David Icke: Was He Right?" 
He was featured in the third episode of the first season of the comedy duo Penn and Teller's Bullshit! about alien abductions.
Leatherface's Bowl of Flies contained the lyrics "David Icke is right/does he need to give his life/to prove that he is right".
Ewigkeit's album Radio Ixtlan recommended And the Truth Shall Set You Free as further reading alongside eight other books. This connection to conspiracy was brought to a head with the release of 2005's "Conspiritus" album (Earache records) - a concept album about a dystopian world controlled by the Illuminati.
Carter USM's After the Watershed contained the lyrics "Goodbye Ruby Tuesday/ Come home you silly cow/ We've baked a cake and all your friends are waiting/ And David Icke would like to show us how/ To love you back to life again now." The band stated that the lyrics were actually about domestic abuse.
Mike Scott of The Waterboys wrote a song called "Sympathy for David Icke," which urges people to look beyond the negative media hype and read David's books. "I'm not saying he's the king, and he himself claims no such thing, He said we all are points of light, and you know what, I think he's right."
Clem Snide wrote a song, "The Ballad of David Icke," available on Future Soundtrack for America, that contains the lyrics "The secret rulers of the world / have stolen my girl."
Essex band Sugarcoma sampled parts of Icke's speeches and set them to music in the song "Queenie" originally known as "Half Sick," released in 2003 as a b-side to their single "You Drive Me Crazy."
In June 2006, metal band Hiss of Atrocities released two songs "Prelude To Malevolence" and "Watchtower of Malevolence." The Lyrics from Prelude, "Deep in the earth they dwell in the lowest parts of hell, planning for their day to ascend to bring the world to an end" are a direct reference to the Chitauri mentioned in David Icke's work. Additional references to Icke become obvious in the follow-up song (Watchtower of Malevolence) where lead singer Matt Swinford is heard shouting "Annunaki."
In a February 8, 2007 posting on their website Dead Air Space, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke made reference to an unnamed person entering his "David Icke" phase. This response came soon after a taunt from Noel Gallagher, a member of Oasis.
In a poll published by BBC Homes and Antiques magazine in January 2006, Icke was voted the third most eccentric star, being beaten by Björk and Chris Eubank.
In Adrian Mole: The Wilderness Years, Adrian secretly expresses his respect for Icke and wishes others would treat his theories more seriously.
In 2006/07 David Icke's speeches were sampled for the Drum and Bass Track 'Bloodlines' released on Widescreen Recordings.
Comic book writer Mark Millar developed several plot and character elements of the Marvel Comics series The Ultimates (a revamp of The Avengers) based on Icke's worldview. In creating Thor for a modern audience, Millar gave readers a handsome, blond European with vague ties to radical environmentalist groups, who inexplicably insists that he is the incarnation of that Norse god. Though the series remained coy as to whether Ultimate Thor is crazy or divine for some time, by the conclusion it was revealed that he was divine. Icke also unwittingly contributed the name for an invading reptilian alien race called the Chitauri, called Skrulls in the earlier Avengers series.
Issue 143 of the DC/Vertigo comic Hellblazer features the hero, John Constantine using his skills as a con artist to misdirect a nosy tabloid reporter from his paranormal investigations by giving him a false "Supernatural History of London" heavily influenced by the theories of Mr. Icke.
