In popular cultureEdit
- A remix of the song, featuring rock band Sum 41 was also released as a single, featuring a much more rock and punk sound, than the original song, which is a hip hop song. The "Sum 41 Rock Remix" version was released as a bonus track on iTunes in the UK in both Ludacris' album The Red Light District and Sum 41's album Chuck. In addition to this, the remix was featured in the trailer for Smokin' Aces and A Haunted House 2.
- The song is also featured as the ending theme of the critically well-received comedy blockbuster Tropic Thunder (where Tom Cruise does a hip hop dance to it). The song was also performed at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards where both Tom Cruise and Jennifer Lopez dance to the song.
- American rock band Ra mixes the chorus and part of the verse from this song into their song "Skorn" as heard on the live album Raw. The singer Sahaj Ticotin claims that a member of their street team mixed the two songs together and this is where the idea came from.
- A different Rock mix featuring Lazyeye was released on one of the "Get Back" singles in 2005. This version was heard in The Longest Yard and was performed live on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and at the Spike TV Video Game Awards in 2004.
