Their track "Magnetic Baby" is featured as a downloadable track in Rock Band 2.

In January 2008 they caused a stir in the United Kingdom after Kate Moss attended their concert at London's Death Disco club and danced with 'six foot bisexual' singer Justin Tranter. Vogue described the band as "unashamedly crass and deliciously animated".

Justin Tranter was also a coach on the MTV show MADE, where he helped a shy sixteen-year-old become a bassist in her own band.

Semi Precious took part in their largest video shoot to date, on January 11th 2009, while in Dallas for their 2009 tour for Rock n Roll Never Looked So Beautiful. Shot on the rooftop of the South Side on Lamar, it was the first time fans got to participate by being in the band's videos.
