Sawyer listens to Iggy & the Stooges, knows Locke is not Locke

Locke/Smokey makes his way to the Dharma barracks where he goes to Sawyer and Juliet's old house. The song blasting on the record player is "Search & Destroy" by Iggy and the Stooges which features the lyric "I'm a runaway son of the nuclear A-bomb," seemingly a reference to the bomb detonation in "The Incident."

Locke finds Sawyer in the bedroom drinking Dharma whiskey. Sawyer doesn't care that Locke is supposed to be dead, but he does realize that the man is not John Locke. Sawyer says that John Locke was always scared, but the man he's looking at is not scared. Locke says that he can tell Sawyer the answer to the most important question in the world which is why Sawyer is on the island.

Is the fact that the Stooges were from Ann Arbor, Michigan a coincidence given that the Dharma Initiative had its headquarters there?
