"Anyone who really knows me knows how obsessed I am with Led Zeppelin. So the fact that the band agreed to put two songs in my show is, very seriously, a career high-point," said Eric Kripke, creator and executive producer of “Revolution.”

 

Live versions of both songs are available on Celebration Day, which chronicles Led Zeppelin’s legendary 2007 concert at London’s O2 Arena. The epic performance was a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band’s signature blues-infused rock ’n’ roll including such landmark tracks as “Whole Lotta Love,” “Rock And Roll,” and “Stairway To Heaven.” Celebration Day will be available in multiple audio and video formats on November 19 and can be pre-ordered now at ledzeppelin.com.

“Revolution” is the epic adventure from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and “Supernatural’s” Eric Kripke, about a family struggling to reunite in an American landscape void of electricity: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology — computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights — has mysteriously blacked out forever. Kripke, Abrams and Bryan Burk (“Lost,” “Star Trek”) serve as executive producers, and Jon Favreau (“Iron Man” movies) serves as co-executive producer. “Revolution” is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Bad Robot Productions, Kripke Enterprises and Warner Bros. Television.

    The choice of “Since I’ve Been Loving You” must be the only unpredictable thing about ‘Revolution’ these days. I can’t see how it fits. Miles and Nora? ♫Working from seven to eleven every night, it really makes life a drag – I don’t think that’s right…♪?? Maybe Nora and sister Mia: here comes a flashback.

  • Jason

    I like good ol’ Led Zep, but when their songs play on Revolution it will be as jarring as fingernails on a chalkboard. Seems a very odd match.

  • karin

    awful,come on Led Zep

  • joel

    @AppleStinx,
    The song is about betrayal, which seems like it could be a common Revolution theme in any given episode.

    That’s what I thought, regarding Mia and Nora. Still, something like “The Battle of Evermore” would have been perfect down to its ominous tone and lyrics as it goes: “the Queen of Light took her bow and then she turned to go, the Prince of Peace embraced the gloom and walked the night alone…”

    Doesn’t matter, when REVOLUTION goes on DVD, they will replace the two Led Zepplin songs with cheasy replica’s due to copyright issues.

  • john

    Revolution should feature the soundtrack of Titanic.

  • Other Than That Mrs. Lincoln How Was The Play?

    Led Zeppelin??? Maybe the band could be on the show after find an old Good Year blimp and go on a geriatric reunion tour called BLACKOUT 2027 (depending on what year its supposed to be – earliest is 2027). LOL

    Maybe the could find an aging Prince who reunited with his old band Revolution and tour the decayed ruins of civilization. Maybe they could get ahold of one of those necklace things so the band could use their electric gee-tars and amps and rock out to Party like its 2027.

  • Other Than That Mrs. Lincoln How Was The Play?

    Revolution should feature the 80s band Power Station – when they blow things up they could play Some Like It Hot.

  • Steven Leitner

    Is NBC attempting to boost this show’s ratings with music like how The Fray’s How to Save a Life helped boost the ratings for Grey’s Anatomy and Scrubs?

  • joel

    It’s to promote the release of Led Zeppelin’s DVD/Blu Ray movie. It’s all in the Warner Brothers family.

  • POIFanatic

    That’s awesome!
