The Twin Peaks franchise often makes references to various elements of popular culture:

Real-world events and peopleEdit




  • Edward Hopper's paintings are an inspiration for Twin Peaks' aesthetics.
  • The imagery of the Red Room seems to be inspired by Francis Bacon's Seated Figure, 1961.




  • In Part 1, Ben and Jerry both quote the Aretha Franklin version of the song "Respect."
  • Gordon Cole is whistling a song in Part 7, but it is difficult to distinguish if it is Rammstein's "Engel" or the theme from Fellini's Amarcord composed by Nino Rota.

Incorrectly regarded as cultural referencesEdit

  • Contrary to popular belief, Hank Jennings' prisoner number is not 24601, like Jean Valjean in Les Misérables, but 8464257.[22]
