LED ZEPPELIN Allow Song To Be Used In 'School Of Rock' Movie

September 8, 2003

LED ZEPPELIN have agreed to let their track "Immigrant Song" be used in the soundtrack for the upcoming film "School Of Rock" after the film's star, Jack Black, made a personal plea for the permission to use the cut, according to Launch. Black — who makes music with the comical rock act TENACIOUS D — reportedly stepped in after "School Of Rock" director Richard Linklater was unable to secure the rights to the song. Black is said to have sent a humorous videotaped request for the song to the three surviving members of LED ZEPPELIN, who subsequently gave their approval. The "School Of Rock" soundtrack comes out September 30, while the film opens October 3. Other artists featured on the soundtrack include THE WHO, THE DOORS, CREAM, STEVIE NICKS, THE RAMONES, and T. REX. The album also features a rendition of AC/DC's "It's A Long Way To The Top (If You Wanna Rock & Roll)" performed by Black and the film's child actors.
