Jimmy Page & Robert Plant had to stop changes being made to this Led Zeppelin song
In November this year Marvel released the latest Thor movie 'Ragnarok'.
'Ragnarok' used Led Zeppelin's iconic 'Immigrant Song' for the theme song and it was clearly a great decision.
Mark Mothersbaugh, musical composer for 'Thor: Ragnarok' said that both Jimmy Page & Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin were approached rather last minute for use of the song.
Jimmy and Robert saw how the song was used in the film and loved it. However, Mark Mothersbaugh wanted to go a step further and add orchestral elements to the song. Jimmy and Robert immediately shot this down.
“If there was only one regret, we threw it out there, what do you think about the idea of letting Mark put his 100-piece orchestra over the second use on the bridge. And they were like ‘no one’s allowed to touch our song in any way musically’. They have these rules of what you’re allowed to do. It was an idea… maybe on the next film," Mothersbaugh said.
