Pros: - They truly know how to rock
- Jimmy Page is quite a guitarist, especially at that time.
- They evolved (although only slightly) over the years and become more experimental.

Cons: - Many of their famous riffs and songs are (admittedly) lifted straight from blues songs without ever giving them credit.
- Much of their music/antics are unintentionally overblown
- They paved the way for 80's hair metal, changing the way guitarists think forever.
- Their fans tend to dismiss new music of any kind, throwing around words like "talent" and saying things like "its a shame kids these days don't listen to good music", although that's not really LZ's fault...


Despite having these cons, this band has been rediculously influential over the years and pretty much shaped hard rock as we know it.
Led Zeppelin is a great cover ba-I mean, hard rock band.

Undoubtably the most influential rock band of all time, if not the most influential of all genres. It's just sad that people give them so much credit... because they weren't terribly original. Led Zeppelin I doens't have a single song which isn't influenced by another band/person. Page copped lyrics and riffs from many poor blues artists without giving them proper credit. In fact, they've been sued several times for it.

This includes, but is not limited to the following:
Rock 'n Roll, Black Mountainside, When the Levee Breaks, Custard Pie, Hats Off to Harper, How Many More Times, Bring It On Home, Whole Lotta Love, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, Nobody's Fault But Mine, In My Time of Dying, Moby Dick, Lemon Song, Boogie with Stu, Stairway to Heaven (yes, they lifted the beginning chords and the progression pattern), White Summer, Since I've Been Loving You, Dazed and Confused, Communication Breakdown.

They did have some original tunes which were good, but they need to give credit where credit is due, like to Willie Dixon or other poor blues artists of the 50s.
