It has also been played live by the Red Hot Chili Peppers during the mid-1990s, Billy Talent, and TV on the Radio. Chimera used "Waiting Room" in their composition 'My Guitar Hangs Itself'. Both MC Lars and Girl Talk have sampled the song on their tracks "No Logo" and "Let It Out" respectively. The song is also frequently played at Washington Redskins football games at FedEx Field.
