A Youtube Story

Got an e-mail through today. As follows...

I was a litle bit miffed with this as you can imagine as I quite like the big Led Zeppelin sound track of this video. It was one of my favourites!

In fact it goes like this if you can't remember.

Well, that is actually a tribute band doing a Led Zeppelin song probably without copyright clearance. Lets see if they have to change their Audiotrack.

Now as you saw earlier, the e-mail told me not to worry, because there was plenty of music available in their library to use.

It actually turns out there isn't much there. Well that's of any use anyway.

So, we now have our night out video from Redcar in December 2007 with the soundtrack of...

The Young Werewolves and Curse of the Cocaine Mummies.

And it sounds like this!

Oh wait, it doesn't sound like anything. It's silent. That worked well didn't it! 


It tells me that any can be changed though. So, I am thinking I might upload a video with two different soundtracks (if they do work) to see if they take on a different meaning - what do we think?

All videos now on must contain someone saying "Fuck off Led Zeppelin" and should be soundtracked by the Zep.

They are a mean spirited bunch of cunts it has to be said. I've just remembered the extra on School of Rock where Jack Black begs them to use one of their songs. They did.

Perhaps we need to beg?
