I really do obsess over soundtracks

I've detected a mystifying new trend in scores for movie trailers: lifting a well known riff from a classic rock song, and planting it in a new context. Ahead of a screening of Guardians 2 last night, no fewer than 3 trailers used this trick. Valerian features the haunting wordless chorus from "Because" by the Beatles; Thor: Ragnarok employs the intro to "Immigrant Song" by Led Zeppelin; and the Tom Cruise remake of The Mummy borrows the guitar lick from "Paint It Black" by the Rolling Stones.

Do these trends emerge purposefully from the bowels of Hollywood marketing departments, or are they some unconscious manifestation of our cultural zeitgeist?
