Warner/Chappell Removes Popular Artists From The Karaoke "No Fly" Lists

- Posted in Karaoke by

The word from various karaoke manufacturers, including our karaoke subscription partners at PartyTyme, is that Warner/Chappell Music Group has removed a few mega artists from the karaoke exclusion list (AKA "Karaoke No-Fly-List").

This is great news for karaoke hosts and singers alike, as they can now legally perform with songs from top artists such as Rihanna, Katy Perry, Beyonce, The Eagles, and more.

PartyTyme has already gotten a jump on things, releasing a number of previously excluded songs in last subscription update.

Here's the short list of artists that have been removed from the Warner/Chappell Exclusion List:

  • Bee Gees
  • Beyonce
  • Don Henley
  • The Eagles
  • Green Day
  • James Brown
  • Jay-Z
  • Katy Perry
  • Kid Rock
  • Randy Newman
  • Rihanna
  • Savage Garden
  • The Ramones
  • Van Halen
  • Van Morrison

We hope this is a sign of things to come, with other manufacturers soon following suit. After all, karaoke can only further assist in promoting artists such as those found on the list above, and in some cases, help keep them relevant.
