** The song "Champion" by KanyeWest extensively samples Kid Charlemagne. Interesting, they initially denied his request to use the sample, but after he [[http://www.fuse.tv/2012/10/kanye-west-wrote-handwritten-letter-to-steely-dan-for-sample-clearance wrote them an emotional letter]] explaining how important the song was to him, they obliged.

* ValuesDissonance: "The Fez." It's about a guy who won't have sex with a woman without wearing a condom (see GetTheeToANunnery). Today, wearing a condom is pretty much standard operating procedure (at least until you've been with your partner for a good long while), but back in 1976 (when the song came out), the thought process was that pregnancy was avoidable with all the marvelous contraceptives on the market (the pill, the diaphragm, and the IUD being the most notable), and virtually all [=STD=]s were either curable or could not be prevented with condoms anyway, so insisting on a condom was seen as a sign of an overly-cautious, distinctly un-hip man who didn't trust his partner(s). Yeah, HIV/AIDS undid that attitude in a hurry...

* HilariousInHindsight: Donald Fagen's solo track from 2006, "Security Joan", is about someone falling in love with a airport security officer while being searched at a checkpoint. Fast-forward to 2012, when Fagen gets stopped at the US-Canada border because of an FBI file related to the drug bust at Bard.

* OneSceneWonder: It's the only Steely Dan song he played on, but Jay Graydon's guitar solo for "Peg" is one of the top moments in their catalog.

* DevelopmentHell: ''Two Against Nature''. From the DVD: --->'''Interviewer''': It took you ''19 years'' to release this album. What is up with that? --->'''Donald''': We didn't do much for the first 17 and a half years. ** Although some would say they just needed time to create. A ''lot'' of time.
