All that is needed is that the venue/arena where the music is being used has a general public performance license with ASCAP/BMI/SESAC. That's all.
All these foolish bands have zero legal basis for what they're doing - it's purely a PR move.

I've seen him play, he's the real deal!
Sitcoms and dramas - written content that takes time to be made - does need their permission however.
My only problem with the film was the "de-mystifying" a bit of the aliens and attempting to make it purely scientific, rather than just having a being which is just evil (such as the Balrog in Lord of the Rings). Too many films/books/shows do that these days...thanks modernist, materialist thought! Oh well.
Like I said though, fun movie, short & enjoyable!
