The partnership of the third Thor instalment and the Seventies rock icons had been laid bare a few months ago when Marvel released a trailer prominently featuring the track. And it was partly through his use of Immigrant Song that he secured the Thor job in the first place, having put together a demo reel to showcase what he had in mind for the film. The song, which was included on their third studio album Led Zeppelin III in , features lyrics inspired by Norse mythology.

But Led Zeppelin have a mixed history when it comes to licensing their work. For a long time it was notoriously difficult to get permission to use one of their songs. We weren't being pompous We did come from the land of the ice and snow. We were guests of the Icelandic Government on a cultural mission. We were invited to play a concert in Reykjavik and the day before we arrived all the civil servants went on strike and the gig was going to be cancelled.

The university prepared a concert hall for us and it was phenomenal. The response from the kids was remarkable and we had a great time. Six days after Led Zeppelin's appearance in Reykjavik, the band performed the song for the first time in concert during the Bath Festival.

When the song was played live, Page included a lengthy guitar solo , which was absent on the recorded Led Zeppelin III version.

Led Zeppelin has a reputation for denying the use of their songs in movies. The band had originally denied Richard Linklater permission to use "Immigrant Song" in School of Rock , but star Jack Black was able to convince them by making a video of himself performing the song.
