After Fry finds the VW, he takes the blue headband from one of the hippy skeletons inside, and wears it for the rest of the episode.
The title is a play on the Bob Dylan song "Blowin' in the Wind". This is the second episode of a series created by Matt Groening to parody this song, the first one being The Simpsons episode "D'oh-in In The Wind".
At one point the score of Bender's song is shown. It is actually the theme from Beethoven's 5th Symphony in C minor, although it is shown in the key of D minor.
While playing "Where It's At", Bender sings a mock-up of the line "I got two turntables and a microphone" by singing "Got a washboard stomach and a microphone." Also, instead of singing "That was a good drum break", Beck sings the line, "That was a washboard break."
The chase scene at the end is inspired by the 1968 movie Bullitt, and the part of the chase in Chinatown could refer to a scene in the video for Beck's Devil's Haircut. The green Volkswagen New Beetle that is seen throughout the chase is a reference to the green Beetle seen throughout the chase scene in Bullitt.
When Bender discovers that he is no longer broken he says that he can't sing about being broken if he's not and he then says "It's just like Christina Aguilera singing in Spanish" this is a reference to Christina Aguilera singing many songs in Spanish despite her first language being English, and not being able to actually converse in Spanish.
"Exporting Komedy" on Patchcord Adams' laptop is a reference to the KDE Desktop.
