Contracts with music companies can be very detailed & difficult. Depending on the songs used, the music label may have rights to the song, but don't issue royalties to that artist anymore. & to deepen the situation, that artist can then request $, for the usage of the song. Not to mention the multiple artists that may be involved. Things like that would cost the music label $.

"& they don't want that,-Nooooo!"

But it could just be a case of "no, you can't use that song".
Damn! 54 tracks? I thought maybe a handful or so.
That's heist.
