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)

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.

A merely average rock band that are completely overrated. Liked by many people who lack individuality to such a great extent they must follow the trend laid down for them by other fellow loosers over the past 30 years. If people were not so scared to be different and listen to something else Zeppelin would have died years ago - shame really.
Paul - Zeppelin are like the best band ever!

Mark - I so totally agree, they are the greatest to grace the planet.

Simon - Or...you are just saying that because Paul said it and you are too unidividualistic to try something else and too scared people might mock you if you do. I bet you have never even listened to Led Zeppelin.

Mark - So...I have a Zeppelin T-Shirt, I am a fan.

Simon - Go and die.

Paul - Pwned.

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.
