Recent results from the LHCb experiment are presented that test QCD and the electroweak theory. Inclusive and differential cross-sections as well as cross-section ratios and asymmetries, for W and Z boson production are measured and compared to next-to-next-to-leading order QCD predictions using the most recent parton distribution functions. In addition, differential cross-sections for low mass Drell-Yan production are presented in the di-muon mass range 5 < M_\mu\mu < 120 GeV/c2. Finally, a measurement on the production of jets of particles in association with a Z boson is presented.
