The song is featured during the opening of Episode 17 of the TV series My So-Called Life.
The song also features in the film Grosse Pointe Blank. Since the original master tapes were not available for use in the film, the band recorded a new version of the song, entitled "Blister 2000". A new music video was created for the original version of the song, coinciding with the release of the film. It features Gordon Gano as a deranged assassin trying to kill Socks the cat in puppet form, as well as clips from the film.
In 2005, it became the first English-language track to ever be allowed on RTÉ Raidió na Gaeltachta, the Republic of Ireland Irish-language radio station, after having been selected by listeners for the event.
In August 2007, Gordon Gano was the subject of a lawsuit brought by bassist Brian Ritchie. The lawsuit stems partly from Gano's authorization of the use of "Blister" in a Wendy's commercial. In 2008, the song was featured on a Foster's Lager "Stealing Shadows" advertisement.
In 2015 the song featured in Netflix series Love.
