* Performed during a proposal on ''TheSuiteLifeOfZackAndCody''. The groom requested it because the bride's name was Grace. * Diane calms a crowd of angry mourners of one of Coach's friends in a second-season episode of ''{{Cheers}}'', "Coach Buries a Grudge" with it. * It gets sung by Maria at Alex's funeral in ''{{Roswell}}'', although the writers did at least use some of the less well-known verses.

The pentatonic scale part was already mentioned a paragraph ago
Another fun fact: It uses the CommonMeter, which is, naturally, very common. As such the same lyrics can be sung to the tune of ''TheBeverlyHillbillies'', ''GilligansIsland'', "Camp Town Races," "House of the Rising Sun," and "[[Film/TheLionKing I Just Can't Wait to be King]]," along with many other songs. The song is also written completely on the pentatonic scale, which means you can impress your friends by playing it on a piano using only the black keys.

* Music/ThePianoGuys incorporate the hymn in their cover of Rachel Platten's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOO5qRjVFLw "Fight Song"]]. The video was filmed on location in Scotland with a pipe and drum corps playing in the background. Jon Schmidt slips in a couple bars of "Scotland the Brave" as well.

* Contemporary Christian music artist Chris Tomlin shoehorned the melody into 4/4 time and tacked on a modern sounding praise chorus to create "Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)". Interestingly, his rendition uses the rarely-heard original final verse.

* On ''TheMentalist'', it's to be assumed Amazing Grace was played at a funeral, judging by the way they sing it afterward. Bagpipes are mentioned.

The "Amazing Grace" melody, like many hymns, is composed completely on the pentatonic scale. Among other things, this means that even a completely unmusical [[Mooks Mook]] can plink it out on a piano by playing it on only the black keys. (Hint: start with C-sharp, the leftmost key on one of the groups of two.)
