- The song replaced the song "Lapti Nek" from the theatrical version of Return of the Jedi.
- The Special Edition replacing "Lapti Nek" with "Jedi Rocks" has been infamously despised by hardcore Star Wars fans and purists, claiming that "Jedi Rocks" is an annoying and out-of-place addition to the film.
- In-universe, the song was improvised by Sy Snootles. Apparently, she made many grammatical mistakes in her Huttese during the song, and the subject matter of the song was considered inappropriate.
