Nit picking here, but...
"Whole lotta love" is taken from Led Zeppelin 2, released in October 1969, seven years too early.
If they had wanted to be spot on, then they should have chosen a track from "Physical Grafitti", released in 1975. The anthemic "Kashmir" would have fit the bill perfectly.
Somewhat off-topic, but this brings to mind the whole problem of paying licensing rights to music that's used in film soundtracks.
There was an article in the Wall Street Journal recently where Steve Van Zandt of the E Street Band talked about how expensive it has become to buy the rights to use well-known musical recordings in films.
He specifically mentioned how George Lucas' "American Graffiti" relied heavily on 1950's-early 60's pop music in the soundtrack to evoke a specific time period. However, he said that movie probably could not be made today, because the licensing rights to all the "Golden Oldie" rock music would be unaffordable to most movie budgets.
Ron Howard (who, coincidentally, starred in "American Graffiti") might have liked to have 1970's Led Zeppelin / Stones / Who, etc., in the "Rush" soundtrack, but maybe the licensing rights are too expensive. Uriah Heep, on the other hand, might be much more affordable.
