Sucker Punch Full Trailer 1 Official (HD)

The song “When the Levee Breaks,” by Led Zeppelin, is used in the first HD long trailer (2:27) for Sucker Punch, but it does not appear in the movie.

TrailerEdit

The song begins at the :25 mark and plays until the :55 mark. At 1:10 it is replaced by “Panic Switch” by Silversun Pickups.

About the SongEdit

Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie wrote “When the Levee Breaks” and recorded it in 1929. Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham (collectively known as Led Zeppelin) rewrote/reworked the song (and credited Minnie for the lyrics) for their fourth album, which was released in 1971. 

TriviaEdit

  • The original lyrics referred to the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927, which destroyed hundreds of homes and farm fields and helped spur the Great Migration of the population westward.
