The ensuing flood of lawsuits quickly made clear that the celebrities featured on the single had all been impersonated by Stallone.

The Vengaboys' 1999 hit "Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!!" was originally subtitled "I'm Married to Geoff Hoon!", an unsubtle reference to singer Denise Post-Van Rijswijk's short-lived marriage to the British Labour Party Member of Parliament for Ashfield. The song's passionate exhortation for an unnamed non-Hoon third party to spend the night together with Post-Van Rijswijk was cited as a contributing factor in the couple's 2002 split, along with Hoon voting no on the second reading of that year's Tobacco Promotion and Advertising Bill.

Simon stated in interviews that the song was written in his bathroom, where he turned off the lights to better concentrate. "The main thing about playing the guitar, though, was that I was able to sit by myself and play and dream. And I was always happy doing that. I used to go off in the bathroom, because the bathroom had tiles, so it was a slight echo chamber. I'd turn on the faucet so that water would run (I like that sound, it's very soothing to me) and I'd play. In the dark. 'Hello darkness, my old friend / I've come to talk with you again'."According to Garfunkekl, Simon originally wrote the lyric as "Aloha darkness, my old friend."Garfunkel once summed up the song's meaning as "the inability of people to communicate with each other, not particularly internationally but especially emotionally, so what you see around you are people unable to love each other."
