The song includes a memorable, unconventional piano hook and "woo woo" vocal samples. The instrumental version of "Diamonds and Guns" is played as the background music in most Garnier Fructis commercials. The song is edited minorly, toning down the guitar distortion. The song is also used in the series Smallville in the second season episode 'Visitor'. This song was also featured in an episode of the short-lived series Fastlane. Also included in Bulletproof Monk when the character Kar is introduced.
