What’s The Most Expensive Song to License for a Movie or TV Show?

It generally costs between $15,000 and $60,000 to license a song for a movie, TV show, or video game.

But there’s one song that costs WAY more than that.  It’s actually THE most expensive song to license.

So what is it?

It’s AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck”.

The producers of “Varsity Blues” paid $500,000 to use it, and that was all the way back in 1999.  So it’s possible that even that price has gone up.

However, it must be worth it, because it’s been used in tons of other movies, including “Deadpool 2”“Thor: Ragnarok”“Battleship”“Iron Man 2”“The Longest Yard”“Daddy’s Home” and “Daddy’s Home 2”, just to name a few.
