A kick-ass song by Led Zeppelin that famously starts off with the lyrics "Hey, hey, mama, said the way you move // Gonna make you sweat, gonna make you groove!" sung in acappella by Robert Plant, just before Pagey and Bonzo kick it into high gear with the lead guitar and drums, respectively.

The song supposedly got its name from a stray black dog that kept walking in and out of the studio while the song was being recorded.
Dude #1: Is that "Black Dog?"
Dude #2: Yeah, man! Led Zepp rules!
Dude #1: Sweet! Crank it up!

Song by Led Zeppelin that rocks. However, it never once mentions "black dog". Probably named so because of the afore-mentioned definition. So I guess it makes you feel like that. Or because Robert Plant was on crack. That crazy bastard.
Led Zeppelin was cool. Black dog was cool too. I love your Mom.
