The song used when the kids first get served ("Let's See You Dance Sucka") is a parody of "Shake That Ass Bitch" by Splack Pack.
In the original airing, the hat that one of the Orange County kids wears has "Lil Shiit" written across it. All subsequent airings, even on the Season 8 DVD and the iTunes version, have the hat reading "Lil Sheep".
The song playing when the Goth Kids demonstrate their dance moves is from an untitled DVDA composition which resembles 80s pop music and popular gothic music.
In the background of the arcade, in the scene where Stan recruits Yao, the game Thirst For Blood can be seen in the shot of the DDR kid getting more quarters for the game. Thirst for Blood was the game the boys played on the Okama Gamesphere in the episode "Towelie".
Also, the Orange County Convention Center in the episode appears to be based on the Los Angeles Convention Center, specifically the South Hall building and the walkway above Pico Blvd.. In the film that inspired this episode, You Got Served, the final dance battle actually does take place inside the Los Angeles Convention Center.

In the creator's commentary for this episode, Matt Stone mentions that inspiration for this episode came when he went to watch the 2004 film, You Got Served at the Magic Johnson Theaters in South Central Los Angeles with Trey Parker, staff writer Kyle McCulloch and Kyle's girlfriend. He states that the film is the worst film in the world but watching it with the entirely black audience and seeing them get out of their seats and dance in the aisle made it a fun movie experience.
According to the audio commentary, South Park co-creator Matt Stone met You Got Served producer Billy Pollina at a bar after this episode aired, where Pollina said that he loved the spoof.
Several elements of the derided 2004 movie, You Got Served are referenced in the episode:
The title of the episode parodies the film's title and catchphrase.
The Orange County Crew challenging Stan and then telling him that he got served is based on the antagonist of the film, Wade, who is from Orange County, California and names his team "Wade's Crew".
The dance competition in the film is called "Big Bounce" while a banner that reads "Bounce" can be seen in front of the OCCC in the episode.
Rapper Lil' Kim is seen in the film as one of the host of the competition, as one the prizes included performing in her music video.
The host of the competition in the episode is modeled after dancer Wade Robson who was the other host in the movie.
The stage for the dance competition is modeled after the inside of the Los Angeles Convention Center where the final dance battle takes place in the film.
The Orange County Crew coach is partial modeled after Mr. Rad.
Other films that are lampooned in this episode include:
Save the Last Dance - Butters quitting dancing because of the accident he caused, like Julia Stiles' character quitting ballet because her mom died in a car crash.
8 Mile - a snippet of a song that sounds like Eminem's "Lose Yourself" plays for a few seconds in the hospital scene with Stan and his father and later, when Stan comes to talk to Butters about the incident.
The name of the arcade, Flynn's Sinistarcade, is a reference to Flynn's, the one Jeff Bridges' character owned in the movie Tron. Sinistar is also the name of an early 1980s video game that was similar to Asteroids.
The posters at Lamont's Dance Studio (in the scene where Chef tries to train Stan and his dance troupe) are:
Carrie (the woman getting electrocuted by the stagelight that fell on her husband, everyone running and screaming out of the auditorium, a man getting trampled as everyone evacuates, and Butters standing in the center of the stage covered in blood)
Final Destination (the man getting crushed by the stagelight and the woman getting impaled by the rafters)
The episode makes reference to Charles Whitman and the Texas Clock Tower Massacre, when Butters is informed that one of the women killed in the accident was pregnant, and two of the survivors later committed suicide.
The final lines of the episode where Butters is screaming "No, no...!" whilst being praised, is similar to the final scene in Evil Dead II, complete with the "Raimi-Cam" shot into Butters's mouth.
The paper Butters reads from his box states that eight people died in the accident, whilst when Butters has a flashback, there are clearly more than eight dead people.
When Stan asks Butters to join his crew again, Butters is playing with Leggos, which is a parody of Lego.
When the Marsh family has dinner, Sharon says that Stan was served at school, though it had been established and made clear by Stan himself that it was in the True Value parking lot.
When Stan gets his team together, then mentions they might get served, everyone says Stan never mentioned anything about them getting served before. That's not true. Stan clearly told the Goth kid he needed a dancer so he wouldn't get served.
Butters' full name, Leopold "Butters" Stotch, is misspelled as "Leoplod" on the first newspaper article.
When Butters' shoe slips off when he's dancing against The OC Kids, his left shoe comes off. The shoe is shown to be his left, but when it hits the lights it is the other shoe; his right shoe. Also, when Butters is carried out, he has his left shoe on and his right shoe is off.
After Butters accidentally killed what was said to be 8 (then Stan corrects at 11) people at the competition, when it shows him looking out at the seats at the dead bodies, you can count 21 corpses.
When everyone congratulates Butters at the end of the episode, Mr. Garrison is missing one of his eyebrows.
After Butters' tap-dancing incident occurred again, thus killing the OC crew, in the cheering crowd, a Visitor is present.
