Led Zeppelin Songs To Be Featured On ‘Revolution’

Led Zeppelin will be lending a few of its songs to the NBC drama Revolution.

According to the Associated Press, next week’s episode of Revolution will feature the Led Zeppelin song Kashmir and Since I’ve Been Loving You. The episode will coincide with the release of the band’s new Celebration Day album.

Yahoo reports that Revolution scored the iconic band’s songs for two reasons: The show and the band both have ties to Warner Bros., and Revolution creator Eric Kripke is a huge fan of the band.

Warner-Chappell Music wanted to get Led Zeppelin music on television for the release of the band’s new album so they sent out emails to several producers. Kripke, who is a huge “Zeppelin fan,” jumped at the chance to use the band’s songs on his show.

Kripke said:

“The speed and overwhelming enthusiasm with which I responded, I think, frankly weirded them out a little.”

The Led Zeppelin episode of Revolution will air on November 19. NBC will also put out an ad featuring the song Kashmir later this week.

Celebration Day will also be released on November 19. The album documents the band’s 2007 reunion concert. The 2007 concert featured all of the original members of the band except for the late John Bonham. Bonham’s son, Jason Bonham, filled in on drums.
