Led Zeppelin, Founded in 1979 by Yard Birds guitarist Jimmy Page. Jimmy Page knew Robert Plant and invited him to join because of his amazing voice. Robert Plant did many sessions with John Paul Jones (Songwriter for No Quarter, Greatest Bass player ever). John Bonham was known for his powerful drumming and odd timing. Led Zeppelin dominated the 70's with soldout arenas and the best duo songwriters Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, Until the untimely death of John Bonham. According to alot of magazines and sites Led Zeppelin is the No.1 Influential band of all time, and very greatly contributed to heavy metal. Led Zeppelin produced many albums such as Houses of the holy, Led Zeppelin 1, Led Zeppelin 2, Led Zeppelin 3, Led Zeppelin 4 (ZoSo), Physical Graffiti and many more. The end to Led Zeppelins reign was in 1980 with the death of the best drummer of all time. The band members knew they could not carry on without that irreplacible drummer (Even though Rumours spread about Cozy Powell being in the band). Led Zeppelin made many films such as "The Song Remains The Same". Their best hit songs include: Stairway to Heaven, Black Dog, Rock and Roll, The Song Remains The Same, The Ocean, No Quarter, D'yer Mak'er (Pronounced Jah-may-kah), Whole Lotta Love, HeartBreaker, Tangerine, Over The Hills and Far Away, Dazed and Confused, Moby Dick, Ramble On, Since ive Been Loving you, When The Levee Breakes, Kashmir, The Lemon Song, Achilles Last Stand (Noted by Robert Plant to be the bands best song, with Jimmy Page's best Solo besides Stairway) and Communication Breakdown plus alot more great songs. Im 16 and They have been my favourite band for 11 years. I know so much about them more than anyone I know.

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.

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.
