    The 5th seasons episodes titles are all led Zeppelin songs, I also know that the following seasons had titles that were all Queen and Who songs. Do you know if rights have to get paid for them?

    Titles are not copyrightable. You may use them freely. They can also be used in dialogue without payment -- thus, you can have somebody reference the song by saying "You can't always get what you want." But if another character replies "But if you try sometimes, you just might find you get what you need," you'll owe somebody a good chunk of change.
