When Marty completes the improvised guitar ending for "Johnny B. Goode," he kicks over the guitar amplifier. The amplifier makes the electronic "splash" sound like a guitar amplifier that has a reverb tank. Guitarist Dick Dale and Leo Fender developed the first prototype reverb unit in 1961. Fender's Fender Musical Instruments Corp. introduced the first reverb units in 1962, seven years after the dance, which takes place in 1955.
The character Marty McFly is credited as a performer on the song "Johnny B. Goode". It is actually sung by Mark Campbell with a guitar solo by Tim May.
Spanish dubbed version also refers to Marty in 1955 as Levi Strauss instead of Calvin Klein.
