Well I made a thread for EDM/Dubstep, so might as well make another for my other favorite genre: Classic Rock!

There's a lot bands that I'd like to be used, but Pink Floyd would easily be in the top 3 and preferably using songs from Dark Side of the Moon.

A lot of their songs from Dark Side could be great for a lot of situations. Also, Wish You Were Here used in an ED would be amazing.

Led Zeppelin. Dear god, yes. Zeppelin is EXTREMELY hesitant to give out licensing for their songs, tho. like if you want to buy a license for them, most of their songs cost over seven figures to buy for a production, and Zeppelin also have to see how the song will be USED in production and approve it. But I'd love love love love LOVE to see Zeppelin in something like DRRR. Something kind of dark and gritty.

AC/DC would be nice too. The Beatles in shoujos or somethin' too, early beatles, hehehe. And maybe Journey. I have so many ideas.

I also really wanna see "Carry On Wayward Son" used in an anime of some kind....

Oh I didn't know they were so strict about their licenses. Stairway to Heaven would be great being used for a scene that first starts out really subtle and then leads into a major moment.

Call me crazy, but I don't think Jojo would classify as a shoujo...

well, they've loosened up over the years, and some of their songs have been in a few films, tv shows, and even one commercial, but they hold very tightly to their licenses.

like, the guy who created the Supernatural series talked about how he wanted to use zeppelin, but how the licenses were just too expensive.

And the people who've obtained Zep songs for their productions have had to go through great lengths to get them. A mere snippet usage in School of Rock apparently required the cast to get on video and beg Zep - on their knees!!! for the rights to it, Ben Afflack from Argo had to agree to certain terms to be allowed to use Zep music there, the guy from Silver Linings also had to beg, etc.

Most ppl can't afford seven figure song rights. Some say the Zeppelin catalog amasses to over one billion dollars, of course they're gonna overcharge for each song, but they also feel it's their right to preserve the sanctity of their music so they won't allow just anyone to use it.

I believe the reasoning behind it is that they value their work very much, they feel it's their "art" and don't want it to be included in anything that they don't like, but I feel they also don't want to be called "sellouts" for outsourcing either, as many bands who allow their music to be used in production are often labeled.

I would love to see When The Levee Breaks used for an anime especially, but the probability of Zep outsourcing their music to anime is slim, they won't even outsource it to rock band or guitar hero, apparently, let alone an anime, idk. I can hope....

On another note, I'd love to see darkside featured in an anime too. Especially Time, Time is my fav. Or Money. I'm tied between Money and Time for my fav DSOTM track.
I'm not sure if Nirvana would count but I'd like to see Nirvana songs too. I mean, just. Every band I like, Please put them in an anime somehow because I can somehow relate at least one of my favored bands' songs to an anime somehow.

My bad. I thought you were referring Jojo and made a typo (when you said Shojo) since having these old bands for the ED songs is what Jojo does. I guess I misinterpreted what you said.

Jeez that's ridiculous! Led Zeppelin is so damn strict! And haha, I would have actually loved to see the cast of School of Rock begging on their knees, that must have been hilarious.

I get their mindset, but they have to realize that their music is amazing and that people want to be able to use their awesome creations in their own work of art. Now whenever I hear a Led song in a movie or tv show I'll know how lucky they got and how rare that is.

Ya, it'll never happen, even if animes start using classic rock. Not until maybe they're all dead.

And Time would be a great one too, imagine that being used in something like Steins;Gate

And in general, I too would just like to see more western music used in animes but Japanese people will focus on music made in Japan, just like how we mainly focus on music made in the west. So I guess there's no helping it....

Do I even need to explain why this song will be part of an anime if a certain manga ever gets adapted
