According to Billboard, LED ZEPPELIN's classic track "Immigrant Song" has landed on Billboard's Hot Rock Songs chart (dated April 29) for the first time. The tune entered the chart at No. 16, fueled by its appearance in the trailer for "Thor: Ragnarok".
"Immigrant Song" debuted on Hot Rock Songs with 7,000 downloads sold in the week ending April 13, up from a nominal sum the week before, according to Nielsen Music.
The third movie in Marvel Studios' Thor franchise, "Thor: Ragnarok", is due in theaters on November 3.
"Immigrant Song" first appeared on LED ZEPPELIN's third studio album, "Led Zeppelin III", released in 1970 via Atlantic Records.
