“Gold on the Ceiling” is performed by American rock group “The Black Keys” and taken from their 7th studio album “El Camino”. It was released on 25 February, 2012 by Nonesuch Records as the second single from their album.

John Soeder of “The Plain Dealer” said that “‘Gold on the Ceiling’ is the best from their album, but the song looks like Gary Gitter’s Rock and Roll Part 2 and Norman Greenbaum’s Spirit in the Sky”. Herley Brown from “Consequence of Sound” said that “they are on the way to gain more success”. Melissa Maerz from “Entertainment Weekly” commented that “with its gospel harmonies and organs, it could be the best”.
“Gold on the Ceiling” was used for advertising for the Indian beer Cobra, for the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament, for video game Rocksmith, on the video game MLB12: The Show, at the MTV Movie Awards 2012 and during Summer Olympics 2012.
