Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
Paul Kaye is not a fan of dance music, and whenever a scene has him in headphones, he is actually listening to punk rock like The Sex Pistols or The Clash.
When shooting the scene in which Frankie arrives at Club Amnesia, the crew had originally intended to use a different vehicle. As the day went on and it became apparent that the original car was not going to show, the crew asked a passing motorist if they could use his car. He agreed and was featured in the film as the driver of his own BMW.

When Frankie is having the extensive hearing tests, the instrument that the doctor uses has markings that go up to 11. This is a reference to Nigel Tufnel's Amp in This Is Spinal Tap (1984).

Spoilers 

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

Although this movie is advertised as a "documentary" about the story of Frankie Wilde, a DJ who has gone deaf, it is NOT based on a true story. There is no DJ named Frankie Wilde, nor is the story based on Pete Tong or any other DJ. The production company went so far as to create a website that states that Frankie Wilde and his manager Max Haggar are suing the movie company of this "unauthorised biography," in an attempt to make the Frankie Wilde character seem more realistic to anyone that searched online. This hoax/story was confirmed and admitted to by Paul Kaye and Mike Wilmot at the world premiere of It's All Gone Pete Tong (2004) at the Toronto International Film Festival during a Q&A session on September 12th, 2004.
