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.

to:

* The DVD releases of the first two series of ''WesternAnimation/PostmanPat'' both use the Series 2 title sequence, with the Series 3 theme song, due to problems with the rights to the original theme.

** In 2014, ShoutFactory finally released the show on DVD in a complete series set. They cleared most of the music, and used special new technology to replace background songs they couldn't clear (the show's raw soundtrack tapes are long gone).
* Sadly this trope is the reason ''Series/{{Werewolf}}'' isn't on DVD at all. When ShoutFactory tried to release the show on DVD, they couldn't clear all the music. Instead of replacing it, they discovered the raw soundtrack tapes were gone, and could not replace the music. They were forced to let the rights revert back to Sony.

* The DVD release of ''TheGeorgeLopezShow'' couldn't use the song "Low Rider" for the theme song, so a whole new theme was used.

to:

* There was an odd variation in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' ("Saddlesore Galactica") that used Cake's "The Distance". The rights weren't cleared in time for the original broadcast and a soundalike instrumental track was used instead, but later on they did get the rights, and repeats (as well as the DVD) use the actual song.
