Led Zeppelin Music to Be Featured on NBC’s ‘Revolution’
Commercials for Monday (Nov. 19) night’s episode of ‘Revolution‘ on NBC have featured Led Zeppelin‘s ‘Kashmir,’ one of two songs by the band that will play during the hour-long episode. Producers Eric Kripke and J.J. Abrams recently sat down to reveal they’re big Zep-heads, joking that they wanted to build a show they could squeeze Led Zeppelin songs into.
‘Kashmir’ will be part of the drama between characters Miles Matheson (played by Billy Burke) and General Monroe (David Lyons). “It’s part of this very intense moment with Miles when he goes face-to-face with Monroe,” Kripke says in the video below. Clips show the two confronting each other after Miles enters the sitting room of a spacious mansion. Monroe enters behind him and closes the door.
The other song featured is the bluesy ‘Since I’ve Been Loving You’ from ‘III.’ The series takes place in a post-apocalyptic future, 15 years after a catastrophic event causes complete electric failure. Militias and armies begin to rule the land, but the Matheson family may have the key to understanding the past and reversing what happened, if they can avoid Monroe.
Both songs featured on the episode appear on ‘Celebration Day,’ the live recording from the 2007 O2 Arena show in London that is in stores today.
