    It might conceivably cost multiple-thousands of dollars, if not millions; or it

    may not even be possible.  After all, companies like Nike, Apple, or Pepsi

    are often refused the use of songs - no matter how much money is offered.

    The other option is to try and figure out which Copyright-protection society

    is responsible for licensing their public rights. The most common ones are:

    -- American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP)

    -- Broadcast Music Inc. (BMI)

    -- Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers of Canada (SOCAN)

    -- British Performing Rights Society for Music (PRS for Music)

    -- Society of European Stage Authors and Composers (SESAC)
