Greatest Band that has ever lived...with Robert Plant's vocals, and Jimmy Page's guitar skills, they defined the music known as rock!
"Joe, so I finally got the Led Zeppelin box set!"

The first band ever to garner world-wide success by word-of-mouth only, while being totally rejected by music critics, world wide. Started in 1968 by former Yardbirds guitarist Jimmy Page, and poular session musician/arranger John Paul Jones, who were both formally trained,well seasoned musicians. Line-up completed with the addition of former Band of Joy vocalist/lyricist Robert Plant and self-taught percussionist John Bonham, two teenagers who considered themselves "country bumpkins" at the time.
First musical effort as a group was the first few bars of the Yardbirds "Train Kept a Rollin", which created a spark of energy that lasted until September 20, 1980..... the day John Bonham died of alcohol poisoning. The remaining three musicians had enough respect for their creativity,as a whole, their body of work, their fans, and John Henry Bonham to subsequently end their career as LedZeppelin.
An indication of their ongoing popularity and enormous fan base was realized when, in October 2007 it was announced the three surviving members would re-unite, to perform one show, as LedZeppelin, with the son of their late drummer...Jason Bonham. The show was sold out in twenty minutes, when the LedZeppelin website crashed, receiving over 1 million requests for the 20,000 seats available at Londons O2 Arena. The event was a memorial for the death of Ahmet Ertegun, the president of Atlantic records who signed LedZeppelin in 1968.
A LedZeppelin concert would generally reach well over 100 decibals just from crowd noise alone, before the band ever went onstage.
LedZeppelin once earned over 900,000 dollars for a 3 hour show in Oakland Ca., in 1973, something few bands have done since.
Top albums: Zoso (#4) aka the symbols LP, includes Stairway to Heaven, a song considered to be their enduring masterpiece.
Physical Grafitti (#6) a double album.
LedZeppelin III (#3)
Least popular album: In through the out door. (#9)

Led Zeppelin is unquestionably the single greatest band of all time. Robert Plant's fantastic vocals, Jimmy Page's amazing and insane guitar solos reaching from a far eastern influence to southern blues, John Bonham's amazing drum's, particularly on Moby Dick, and John Paul Jone's fantastic keyboard & bass playing.

To you haters: You probably spend your days plowing goats, Led Zeppelin is one of the most influential hard rock bands of all time. Fuck you. You're just jealous that you have no fucking talent and are a bunch of fucking posers. Go listen to your fucking rap (which isn't fucking music) and masturbate to pictures of spongebob.
Led Zeppelin's music is so amazing that no other band will ever be able to match it.

A band that some people like to diss. So I'm a fanboy? Even though I know all of there discography and album lengths? And can you stop with all this "Led-Zeppelin stole other peoples songs" crap? It's getting old. And think up more things than "over-rated", you lousy trolls.
Trolls:"Oh my god, Led-Zeppelin is so over-rated!"

Me:"How so?"

Trolls:"People only know songs like stairway and Kashmir."

Me:"*Sigh*, No, they don't. you're just denying the simple fact that a lot of people know a lot more than those songs"

Trolls:"No, I'm not."

Me:"*chooses to be the bigger man and walks away*"

The ZEP took flight in 1968 and crashed landed, with the death of their drummer--Bonzo--in 1981. An awesome array of British musicians nonetheless: Page the mystical riff wizzard, Jones providing devestating bass runs, Plant writing bluesy songs with a twinge of Celtic folklore, and Bonzo's fierce drumming. As their name suggests, Zep could go heavy with raunchy songs like 'Dazed and Confused' or light with pensive songs like 'Tangerine.' Their catalog is impressive and the songs have stood the test of time
When the Led Zeppelin took off they took no quarter.

A blues-oriented band from England that launched its remarkable 13 year musical journey in 1968. Jimmy Page is the primo riff wizzard, Robert Plant's song writing evoked a mystical-Celtic kinda dynamic, John Paul Jones provided incredible bass runs, and the drummer--Bonzo--was the hard, driving force. When you consider their 13 year career it's truely amazing that they kept growing together as musicians and leaving us some pretty awesome tunes to enjoy. Zep is credited for starting-up the whole heavy metal thing, but they also played with finese--acustic numbers. Their biggest hit, Stairway to Heaven, starts slow and cute and builds-up into a raunchy climax.
When the Led Zeppelin took off they took no quarter, dude.
