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)

Apparently, 4 gods came down from the holy mountain and decided to play some music. They crushed every other band around and still own any band that has come along since. No other band has come close to the songwriting skill and genius of the mighty Zep (maybe Floyd).
I watched the Led Zeppelin DVD last night, it toasted my groonies.

One of the three greatest rock bands ever, along with the Beatles and Pink Floyd. Led Zeppelin consisted of Jimmy Page (Guitar), Robert Plant (Vocals), John Paul Jones (Bass) and John Bonham (Drums). They created some of the most influential music of the past fifty years, including Stairway to Heaven, which is considered by many to be the single greatest rock and roll song ever. The band broke up in 1980 following Bonham's death caused by his asphyxiation on his own vomit due to alcohol poisoning. They are still very popular today and are still commonly "discovered" and listened to by modern teenagers.

Led Zeppelin is a British band (english) that formed in the 1960's.

Its been said about 100 times now, and they are, arguably, the best rock band and most influential band ever. You may not think its the best, people have different tastes, but you've got to respect that they are, basically, responsible (as in, they inspiried and influenced them) for the many rock and metal bands that are out today.
Led Zeppelin is awesome! Don't try to act tough and be a rebel and be all ''led zepp sux'', you'll just embarass yourself!

Greatest band ever to exist. Ever. I'm not even kidding. Without Led Zep music wouldn't fucking exist. It's funny cuz half the definitions for bands like my chemical romance r sayin the band sux balls, but everyone knows Zeppelin is the shit. Plus if anyone starts talkin shit about em they'll get scrotum-slapped.
Kryssen:I like MCR.

Led Zeppelin are the greatest band ever to walk the face of this earth. They influenced the face of music forever. Since them there has been no one who has been able to match the skill and intensity of their music. In Led Zeppelin each quarter, be it Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones or John Bonham plays an equal part. They are all so talented in what they do. Robert Plants's howling vocals, Jimmy Page's mind blowing riffs and the way he dances his hand up the fretboard, John Paul Jones's mesmerising bass lines and John Bonham's pounding Drum solo's...ahhhh...They fucking ROCK!
Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, John Bonham, ROCK
