Kingsman: The Secret Service took it to a whole new level when they used Free Bird in that absolutely amazing scene. One of the most entertaining scenes I've seen in a very, very long time! Mostly thanks to the best song in the world.
With their remarkable solos and defiant rock ‘n’ roll swagger, Lynyrd Skynyrd became fixtures of the southern rock scene. It’s because of this cut off (Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nérd) that the band first became household names across America. Due in no small part to its structure – half ballad, half up-tempo guitar solo – “Free Bird” also became their second top 40 hit, keeping crowds pumped for decades. -- watchmojo
