Everlong has been featured in the popular music themed video games Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero World Tour.
Although the song is normally performed with electric guitars, vocalist/guitarist Dave Grohl’s solo acoustic variation gained popularity after an impromptu rendition on Howard Stern’s radio show in 1997. The band has often performed the acoustic version of the song live since then.
A common feature of the electric live performances of Everlong involves Dave playing the first two verses and choruses on his own, with the entire band joining in for the final parts of the song. This can be seen on the Hyde Park DVD.
A different acoustic version of this song concludes the 2006 live CD and DVD Skin and Bones.
A muzak version of the chorus appears in the opening and closing scenes of band’s music video for “Learn to Fly,” from the subsequent album There Is Nothing Left to Lose.
