1812 Overture

 Background of 1812 Overture
  The character V plays the classical piece, the 1812 Overture, on loudspeakers in several instances, most notably when he destroys the Old Baily in V for Vendetta (2006). Chancellor Sutler subsequently bans the song from being played ever again in England.

The song was written by Russian composer Tchaikovsky, and debuted in Moscow in 1882. The song pays homage to the Napolean's failed attempt to invade Russia in 1812.
