There are two other versions of this song.
- "3s & 7s" - 3:37 (Pre-Version)
- "3s & 7s" - 3:17 (Radio Edit)
The pre-version of the song features different lyrics and vocals during the bridge.
A video for the song was shot in Joshua Tree and directed by Paul Minor, whose previous music promo work included "Starlight" by Muse. After a number of images were placed on photo-sharing website Flickr, the video in its entirety was added to iFilm on September 26, 2007, a full three months after the single's European release. The video itself is a trailer for a fake movie entitled "3s & 7s" and is shot in a similar style to the exploitation films of the 1960s and the 2007 film Grindhouse. Two versions of the video exist. The first version of the video contained full-frontal nudity. This version was then re-edited to remove all nudity, and the first version was then replaced with version two.
- Josh Homme – vocals, lead guitar, bass, electric piano
