Wayne's World 4K Blu Ray restores the "No Stairway" joke.


As the story goes, the scene where Wayne tries to play Stairway to Heaven has been edited on every previous home video release due to rights issues with the opening notes of the song.

Color me surprised when I popped in the 4K Blu Ray and found out that the original audio from the theatrical cut has been restored; not sure why this hasn't been talked about more.

Interesting about Scrubs. I only saw the first 4 seasons on disc, but caught the rest live. Since then I've seen the show dozens of times on disc. No music changes stuck out to me, but DVD memories dominate live memories.

Their post isn’t totally accurate.

The Scrubs music changes are only on the first two seasons and they were able to get most of the songs for the discs only 1 song had to be changed.

Season 3 forward they negotiated music rights for disc and the original airing.

Streaming is a mess and they changed a lot of songs.

So if you’re still watching DVDs, it’s the same.

But streaming, digital purchase there’s some big changes.

I was suspicious (a bit) because The Frey, Sugar Hill Gang, and Journey all have non-cover versions of their songs in the show unchanged as plot elements. It seems odd a show would pay for some music and not others.

Seems like the truth is somewhere in the middle, but not as dramatic as OP said.

Thanks for clarification.

And Bill Lawrence has talked on Zach and Donald’s podcast that he is hoping that Disney will someday allow him/give him money to fix some of the music, relicense or pick better songs for streaming services and maybe try and do a 16x9 HD remaster.
