Warning, this is a really long one. In the past when recaps have gotten this long I've broken it up into two parts. This time I didn't do that. So, I'm hoping this will be killing some uber time at work for you. Enjoy!
Okay, Iâ€™ve taken enough recovery time after several days of staring at a blank document unable to comprehend how to tackle the recap for â€œMy Bloody Valentine.â€ So, with a glass of wine (and a few beers) and myself in a locked room, time to try this. It'll only take a few days.
This is to ask you to let the TV show Supernatural to use one of Led Zeppelin's songs. Any of their songs, as agreed between the band and Eric Kripke. We know that the rights to Led Zeppelin songs are treated with the care they deserve. We think Supernatural, for its services over the years to rock music in Hollywood, and to the cause of Led Zeppelin in particular, deserves its chance. And you are a famous man who is famously nice to ordinary people, so we do have hope you won't mind us at least asking.
Classic rock, and specifically Led Zeppelin, have been promoted by Supernatural since its start in 2005. Their stall is set out in the Pilot episode, when it's made clear that Dean Winchester, an unlikely hero, is a fan of what his brother Sam calls "the greatest hits of mullet rock". (On the basis of that comment, and his behaviour in Season 4, Sam Winchester has sometimes been possibly slightly less of a hero than Dean.) Dean's tastes in music are even more specifically laid out in Season 1's episode 3, Dead in the Water, when he teaches the traumatised, and formerly mute, child Lucas a very important phrase: "Zeppelin rules".
In another Season 1 episode, "Scarecrow," Dean introduces himself using one of his classic rock aliases: "Hi, I'm John Bonham". "Isn"™t that the drummer for Led Zeppelin?" comes the response. "Wow. Good." says Dean, "classic rock fan". It's the start of a run in which the names of band members are taken by Dean and Sam, not in vain but as cover for saving the world from supernatural evil. In the Season 3 episode "Bedtime Stories," Sam and Dean interview a witness in hospital while posing as detectives from the County Sherriff's Department: "I'm Detective Plant, this is Detective Page", says Dean. In the current Season 5, in the episode "Fallen Idol" Dean is back to being John Bonham, and in "I Believe the Children Are Our Future" Dean and Sam are Detectives Plant and Page again.
