Led Zeppelin is a rock band that formed in London in 1968 and consisted of Robert Plant (vocals), Jimmy Page (guitar), John Paul Jones (bass guitar), and John Bonham (drums). Led Zeppelin's rock music was often merged with folk and blues, and a lot of their songs were inspired by mythology and mythicism. Their first album was self-titled, and the song that really put them on the map for the first time was Whole Lotta Love. Not long later, Stairway to Heaven was released in 1971 and was named 'the most played song on the radio in 1972.' Led Zeppelin soon got their own record label, called Swan Song. They didn't only have a record label, but their own movie as well (The Song Remains the Same). Led Zeppelin had their last concert in the late 1970's not long before the death of John Bonham in September of 1980 after a long night of drinking. Though Led Zeppelin is no longer together, Robert Plant has gone on to create his successful solo career. Led Zeppelin is to this day considered by many people to be one of the greatest bands on earth.
I think Led Zeppelin was the best band ever.

The greatest rock band that ever existed who's first album was released in 1969. With Rober Plant on lead vocals, Jimmy Page on guitar, John Bonham on drugs, I mean drums, and John Paul Jones on the bass. Jimmy Page and John Bonham are the best guitarist and best drummer ever, respecitively. Led Zeppelin broke up in 1979 with the death of John Bonham. Every word and every note of every Led Zeppelin song is pure genius. Their songs rock harder everytime I listen to them.
Led Zeppelin wrote "The Song Remains the Same"

complete and utter gods of rock.
Best songs (in my opinion) are Black Dog and The Battle Of Evermore.

A rock band from the 1970s. Fanboys think that listening to Led Zeppelin makes them special by setting them apart from their peers, who mostly listen to mainstream rap and pop. However, in their day, Zeppelin were rather mainstream.
It is not a big deal that you listen to Led Zeppelin. Everyone knows who they are.

English group formed in late 1968. The singer was a woman, the drummer a Neanderthal, the bass player a polite public school type and the guitarist a diminuitive figure with a penchant for plagiarism. They made a very succesful career by copying Jeff Beck, Robert Johnson and The Beatles Helter Skelter and attract Homer Simpson persona types as fans.

Arguably one of the most over-rated bands of our time. They produced music stolen from other musicians. Listened to by various illiterate people who could be defined as a bogan or stoner/druggie etc. ‘Rebellious’ teenagers smoked pot to one of their songs, Stairway to Heaven, in the seventies. A band still worshipped by clapped out baby-boomers and teenage losers who are trying to be different.
