"Geronimo" also held the longest stay at number one on the Australian Singles Chart for any independent release. The title is a reference to the famous Apache military leader Geronimo and the custom of yelling his name before doing a courageous act. It is also a reference to the Eleventh Doctor's quote "Geronimo!" in the popular sci-fi British drama Doctor Who. It was certified 6× platinum in Australia. It was also featured as the trailer theme for the 2015 Australian family film Paper Planes and appears in the 2015 film Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip and its soundtrack. It was also briefly used in Alpha and Omega: The Legend of the Saw Tooth Cave, Underdogs and Norm of the North. Sheppard performed the song in the 13th episode of the second season of the television series Girl Meets World, called "Girl Meets Semi-Formal", which aired on Disney Channel on 14 August 2015. The song was a sleeper hit in the United States, which peaked at number 53 on the Billboard Hot 100 in May 2015. (en)
