Haha I was gonna say “Mr. Crowley” before I saw the description.
but another famous one would be “Hotel California” by the Eagles.

He was on the front cover of The Beatles album, Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band

There’s a lot
The Poland bands; Behemoth & Vesania frequently deal with Aleister Crowley & thematic themes in their songs.
The beatles featured Crowley on Sgt. pepper lonely hearts club band album cover photo.
Iron maiden’s Moonchild & Revelations relate to Crowley.
David Bowie’s song Quicksand he sings:I’m closer to the Golden Dawn, Immersed in Crowley’s uniform of imagery

Cookie Cutter Rocks His Amadeus.

The entire album ‘Hotel California’ by The Eagles. If you have the actual vinyl; it’s a gate-fold and if you open it up you can see Anton Levay standing up in the corridor above the staircase, looking down upon the Eagles and ‘others who have checked in but couldn’t check out’…LOL! Of course, he was long dead, yet 20 years before ‘Photoshop’; there he is…lol He died in 1969 (“…we haven’t had that spirit here since 1969…”). And Antwon’s church was actually called ‘California Hotel’.
OH CRAPPAGE! ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!! You said ‘Aleister Crowley’ and here I am babbling on and on about Antwon LeVay! Sorry! That warm smell of Colitus has gone to my head and I’m starting to hear mission bells! Oh NO! good question anyway/sorry wrong answer ;P

I’m not sure but I’ve heard a few of Led Zeppelin songs are influenced by Crowley…and I admit that troubles me personally. I have read lots about this subject and read so many conflicting stories. I don’t know and I really do like Led Zeppelin’s music.

Jimmy Page of Led Zep worships Aleister Crowley Page has several several several subliminal references in all Led Zep songs and the word is that when Page dies 3 days later Page and Crowley will rise from the dead and form a band and repair a Global Economical Collapse trust me its Biblical

* The Beatles, who placed him among dozens of other influential figures on the cover of their concept album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band
* Graham Bond, keyboard player and leader of the Graham Bond Organisation recorded Holy Magick, a “Thelemic Mass” drawn from Crowley’s writings.
* David Bowie, whose song “Quicksand”, featured on his album Hunky Dory, makes the reference “I’m closer to the Golden Dawn, immersed in Crowley’s uniform of imagery…”
* Crowley features in the opening lyrics of the song Bal-a Versailles, recorded by Australian pub rock band, Cold Chisel.
* Numerous heavy metal rockers have incorporated Crowley in their lyrics, though their interpretations more often follow the tabloid “Satanist” image of Crowley and not his actual writings. Such lyrics dwell on Crowley’s sometime use of Christian eschatological imagery such as the number 666.
o Ozzy Osbourne in his solo album Blizzard of Ozz released the song Mr. Crowley which was about Crowley’s struggles and beliefs.
o Ministry have also referred to Crowley in lyrics and sampled his voice on the track “Golden Dawn” from their Land of Rape and Honey album. The band reiterated in their album Psalm 69, in the eponym song the last lines “The way to succeed or the way to suk eggs” are borrowed from the Book of lies.
o Legendary British heavy metal band, Iron Maiden, also made references to Crowley in many of their songs (most obviously “Moonchild”, on the “Seventh Son of a Seventh Son” album); Bruce Dickinson, their lead singer, who is an ardent follower of mystical teachings, also frequently refers to Crowley’s work in his solo projects.
o Swiss black metal / thrash metal pioneers Celtic Frost released a (now classic) album named “To Mega Therion”. Crowley had adopted this title, which means “the Great Beast”.
o The German power metal band Edguy has a song, “Out of Control”, which refers to Crowley by name.
