It’s without a doubt one of the high points of the Thor: Ragnarok soundtrack, and it stays in the consciousness of every viewer starting with the teaser and without a doubt during the fight scene on the bridge. We’re talking about Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant music, one of their biggest singles and the biggest rock band of all time. Older generations will undoubtedly remember it, but newer Marvel fans may wonder what music that is. The song, which was released in 1970, serves as the album’s opening track for Led Zeppelin III.
What Immigrant Song has in common with Thor: Ragnarok
The Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin contains various allusions to Norse mythology and expresses a perspective on conflict that was started by Scandinavians.
We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow
The hammer of the gods
Will drive our ships to new lands
To fight the horde, sing and cry
Valhalla, I am coming
Given that the Marvel character was truly influenced by Scandinavian culture, this matches the role of Thor rather well. Because of this, Taika Waititi, the film’s director, suggested using the song in his initial conversation with Marvel.
The song’s rights from Led Zeppelin were difficult to obtain. However, the English band needed to see the movie trailer in order for them to understand that the song was a perfect match for the film.
