"Anyone who really knows me knows how obsessed I am with Led Zeppelin. So the fact that the band agreed to put two songs in my show is, very seriously, a career high-point," said Eric Kripke, creator and executive producer of "Revolution."

Live versions of both songs are available on "Celebration Day," which chronicles Led Zeppelin's legendary 2007 concert at London's O2 Arena. The epic performance was a two-hour-plus tour de force of the band's signature blues-infused rock 'n' roll including such landmark tracks as "Whole Lotta Love," "Rock And Roll," and "Stairway To Heaven." Celebration Day will be available in multiple audio and video formats and can be pre-ordered now atwww.ledzeppelin.com.

"Revolution" is the epic adventure from J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions and "Supernatural's" Kripke, about a family struggling to reunite in an American landscape void of electricity: a world of empty cities, local militias and heroic freedom fighters, where every single piece of technology - computers, planes, cars, phones, even lights - has mysteriously blacked out forever. Kripke, Abrams and Bryan Burk ("Lost," "Star Trek") serve as executive producers, and Jon Favreau ("Iron Man" movies) serves as co-executive producer.
