* The second, third, and fourth seasons' ''Series/QuantumLeap'' Region 1 [=DVDs=] were stripped of all licensed music not explicitly mentioned in dialogue, even when it left characters dancing the Twist, shouting "TEQUILA!" in unison, and mouthing the words to "Louie Louie" for no apparent reason. The most notable omission was the RayCharles cover of "Georgia On My Mind," used repeatedly in the show to underscore the bigger TearJerker moments. After a vociferous outcry, the final season set was spared from any music cuts.

* The original BBC DVD release of ''TheYoungOnes'' Series 2 omitted the cover version of BobDylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues" from the episode "Money", along with a lot of visual gags seen while the song was playing. Fortunately the song was restored in the later complete box set version.

* ''WesternAnimation/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' goes through this from time to time, and it has actually become something of a big issue as far as DVD releases of the series are concerned (despite it being a musical comedy). A few episodes that have been released have had copyrighted songs replaced with poorly-dubbed recordings of original Chipmunk songs (for example, "Love Potion No. 9" is replaced in one episode with "Witch Doctor"), meanwhile, there are ''several'' episodes that feature songs by Music/MichaelJackson, TheBeatles, and others that can't be released without being replaced entirely. Some episodes have managed to keep the songs intact, however.

** ''Revelation of the Daleks'' was one of the last serials to be released on video because of the time it took to secure the rights to the music. The story featured a significant guest character who was a FanOfThePast, leading to the use of a number of classic sixties rock tracks. Because the music is so integral to the plot and often featured characters talking over the top of it, it could not easily be replaced. Ultimately the only track the BBC could not secure the rights to was JimiHendrix's "Fire". This track had to be carefully digitally excised and replaced without losing the dialogue occurring over the top of it.

Sometimes, if one of your favorite shows is experiencing massive delays in being released, it's because they're trying to get the music rights cleared. (''Series/FreaksAndGeeks'' comes to mind.) [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_licensing#Home_video According to]] TheOtherWiki, licensing is one of the biggest problems for for delayed or nonexistent home video releases as noted at {{Website/TV ShowsOnDVD}}[[http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/articles/holdup.cfm]].

* (I Want to Marry a) "Lighthouse Keeper" by Erika Eigen, notably from the soundtrack of ''Film/AClockworkOrange'' was played in the broadcast of MTV's TheMaxx, but home video versions replaced it with a song with the lyric "I'm in Love with a School Bus Driver", which kinda misses the point of the Clockwork Orange reference.

* Any time insert songs were used in ''Series/SabrinaTheTeenageWitch'', about half of them were replaced for the show's DVD releases with generic music. These edits went into the reruns on {{Nickelodeon}}, The N/TeenNick, Creator/ABCFamily, and TheHub.

* An episode of ''Series/{{Profiler}}'', "I'll Be Watching You", made such prominent use of ThePolice song "Every Breath You Take" that the entire episode was left off the DVD release.
