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"

The best 70s/80s band out there. If you don't like Led Zeppelin, you sir are an idiot (and probably need hearing aids).

One of the greatest rock bands of all time. They are actually not that overrated, since most of the music fans today listen to the bullshit preppy preteen boy bands, while led zeppelin has music that can appeal to everyone. They didn't make every single song in the world about a failing relationship, they weren't cliche, and they had talent.

I have been called off as a hater for not liking 1D, 5SOS, and R5. But I honestly hate fangirling. I find it to be a worse internet gimmick than trolling.
Led Zeppelin released the album Houses Of The Holy in 1973.

A band formed by Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones and John Bonham in 1968 that created music derived from many different genres and was instrumental in creating the genre known as 'Metal'. What they created was more than just music; it was life itself. And it can be argued that their music is responsible for the births of around half the population of the planet.

There are precious few self-aggrandizing pseudo intellectuals who will dismiss the band as wholly overrated. PRECIOUS FEW. These people are free to voice their opinion. But when time ravages us all and we shuffle off this mortal coil, as we all most certainly will one day, I can guarantee that no one will remember those folks for their sorry opinion, or anything they've done at all.

But Led Zeppelin will always be remembered for being Led Zeppelin.

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.
Led Zeppelin is the best BAND EVER!!!!!

Led Zeppelin was origionally started by Jimmy Page as a supergroup and continuation of the Yardbirds. Many rumors exist about the name. Some say that other musicians said the band would take off like a lead balloon, or the music was going to be heavy and light (who knows). The members were Robert Plant (vocals/harmonica), Jimmy Page (guitar etc), John Paul Jones (base ect) and John Bonham (drums/other percussion). Each member is considered to be one of the best in their feild. The band was formed in 1969 and disbanded after Bonham's death in 1979.
Led Zeppelin was and is the best band ever. Some of their notable albums include: Led Zeppelin I, Led Zeppelin II, Led Zeppelin III, the contraversial Led Zeppelin IV, Coda, Physical Graffiti, Houses of the Holy and This Song Remains the Same. Their best known song is Stairway to Heaven (I havn't been able to find any hidden satanic meanings)

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.
