Covers and in popular culture Brazilian rock musician Raul Seixas recorded a Brazilian Portuguese version called "Não Quero Mais Andar na Contra-mão" ("Don't Want to Ride on the Wrong Way Anymore") adapting the drugs mentioned in the lyrics to the Brazilian culture (respectively, Colombian marijuana, Boliviancocaine, and Argentinianchloroethane spray). Seixas also released an album (and hit single) called O Dia em que a Terra Parou ("The Day the Earth Stood Still") The song itself was not related to the movie of the same name; rather, it is likely a reference to the album Goodnight Vienna, the cover of which reproduces an iconic scene from the film, with Ringo Starr replacing Michael Rennie as the alien Klaatu standing alongside the robotGort.
Joe Dassin's "Moi j'ai dit non" was a French adaptation of "The No No Song".
Some reissues and later pressings of the Ringo Starr version credit the song as "No No Song/Skokiaan". This is presumably due to a copyright claim by the publishers of the latter song, although details are lacking.
