In popular culture[edit]

In 2010, "Feels Like the First Time" was re-recorded to be included in the rhythm game Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.[6]

The song appears at the end of 2012 movie Magic Mike and was also used during the Riff Medley by the Treblemakers in the movie Pitch Perfect. It was also featured in the 2013 comedy film Anchorman 2.

It is heard in a 2014 TV commercial for Toyota, and the song was also used in The Simpsons episode "What to Expect When Bart's Expecting" (2014), when Homer flashes back to when he first met the horse Sudsley Brewright, who first introduced him to Duff beer.

This song is used in the 2015 pilot episode of the TV series Wicked City, and in 2016 in the third episode of the Netflix show Stranger Things.
