Die Toten Hosen played a notable version of the song, which has become a live staple for the band. It was released as a double a-side single with "Opel-Gang" in 1983, although the single is mostly referred to as "Eisgekühlter Bommerlunder". The single was released with a tiny bottle of Bommerlunder included in the packaging. The single version of "Opel-Gang" is a bit different from the version released on Opel-Gang. "Eisgekühlter Bommerlunder" wasn't originally released on any albums, but the song was released later on the 1993 best-of album Reich & sexy.

In the same year, they produced a hip hop version of "Eisgekühlter Bommerlunder" together with Fab Five Freddy, called "Hip Hop Bommi Bop".
