In other media[edit]

The song is featured in the soundtrack to the 1998 Coen Brothers film The Big Lebowski, it plays during the stylized opening title sequence and during the hallucination sequence after the Dude is punched and his rug stolen. More recently it has been performed live by the film's star, Jeff Bridges, at Lebowski Fest, an audience-participation oriented event commemorating the film.

The song was featured in The Simpsons episode "The Town" during a bowling montage (likely in reference to The Big Lebowski).
