"Straight Up and Down" was used as theme music for the television drama series Boardwalk Empire on the American cable network HBO. The song appears twice on the album (track 6 and 18), as two different takes. The long version of "Straight Up and Down," in particular, clearly indicates two of the band's biggest 60's influences, as by the final minutes of the song, the vocals mimic both the "Woo-woo!" backing vocals from The Rolling Stones song "Sympathy for the Devil," and the "Na-na-na-na!" vocals from The Beatles song "Hey Jude."
