This Is Spinal Tap (or simply Spinal Tap) was the soundtrack to the film This Is Spinal Tap, released in 1984. It was re-released in 2000 with lyrics and two versions of "Christmas with the Devil" as bonus tracks. The cover art is identical to that of the fictional album Smell the Glove featured in the film.
"Gimme Some Money" was featured in the 1991 comedy film Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead.
The song "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight" is featured in the video game Guitar Hero II. When played as the encore song at the end of the career mode's second tier, the in-game band's drummer spontaneously combusts upon the song's completion, a direct reference to This Is Spinal Tap.
Seattle grunge band Soundgarden covered the song "Big Bottom" several times at their early live shows.
In early 2007, American Express Small Business Services used "Gimme Some Money" (with vocals) as background music in a television ad.
Big Bottom appeared on the 2007 Rhino Records release, The Heavy Metal Box.
