LED ZEPPELIN’s ‘Immigrant Song’ Lands On ‘Hot Rock Songs’ Chart

Thursday, 20 April 2017
According to Billboard, LED ZEPPELIN's classic track "Immigrant Song" has landed on Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart (dated April 29) for the first time. The tune entered the chart at No. 16, fueled by its appearance in the trailer for "Thor: Ragnarok". "Immigrant Song" debuted on Hot Rock Songs with 7,000 downloads sold in the week ending April 13, up from a nominal sum the week before, according to Nielsen Music. The third movie in Marvel Studios' Thor franchise, "Thor: Ragnarok", is due in theaters on November 3. "Immigrant Song" first appeared on LED ZEPPELIN's third studio album, "Led Zeppelin III", released in 1970 via Atlantic Records. Following the appearance of ZEPPELIN's "Kashmir" in "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" (1982), almost two decades went by before the cult film "Almost Famous" (2000) showcased the ZEPPELIN tracks "Misty Mountain Hop", "The Rain Song" and three others, followed by "Immigrant Song" in "School Of Rock" (2003) and "Shrek The Third" (2007), and "Good Times Bad Times" in "The Fighter" (2010). More recently, "When The Levee Breaks" was featured in "Argo", while "What Is And What Should Never Be" appeared in "Silver Linings Playbook", followed by "Good Times Bad Times" in 2013's "American Hustle" and "When The Levee Breaks" in 2015's "The Big Short".
