This was the theme song to Al Gore's year 2000 Presidential campaign. The band was not asked permission to use it, but welcomed the new publicity.
Democrat Tom Vilsack used this as his campaign song during his 2008 US Presidential Election campaign before monetary constraints forced him to drop out. (thanks, Edward Pearce - Ashford, Kent, England)
Los Angeles-based rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club covered this song for their first single from their sixth studio album Specter At The Feast. Their version was done as a homage to The Call's lead singer Michael Been, who suffered a fatal heart attack on August 19, 2010 whilst working as a sound engineer at a BRMC concert in Hasselt, Belgium. He was the father of BRMC's guitarist and vocalist Robert Been and was recognized as an honorary fourth member of his son's band.
