With SO much rock and roll music being used in various other media, what ONE song is the most expensive to license for movies, TV shows, and video games??? AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" is one of the most used AND the most expensive.
It cost $500,000 to use it in the movie "Varsity Blues" more than 20 years ago! And it's been in tons of movies since. It generally costs between $15,000 and $60,000 to license a song for a movie, TV show, or video game. By the way clicking the link below costs NOTHING!
