You all are a bunch of fucking idiots if you don't like Zeppelin. I hope you are all being facetious.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

chill. we are all entitled to our own personaly opinions.
zeppelin is awesome. i am a big fan of them. i liked 'stairway" before every one else (in my school) heard that one song and decided they were the shit. i hate that. they hear one song and immediately think they are experts.
i was pretty muc hraised on zep! hehehe

Zepplin was so good. Surely one of the all time rock and roll bands. So they played the blues -name one rock act that don't. Beats the f*** out of sampling. They probably did more to sell the blues than [ugh] say er da mtv, dude. Plant's voice and page's guitar made them imo the 3rd greatest band in their heyday, behind the Beatles and the Stones. They had a good run for about 15 years. Frankly, I don't know of any bands since that could surpass them -not even Aerosmith. I think my fav is Led Zepplin III. For you tards who don't like them go find

Houses of the Holy, III, II, I, number 4, Phyhsical Grafitti, In through the Outdoor, The Song Remains the Same

If you still don't like them, go get your heads examined.

Whenever I listen to Led Zeppelin I find myself wishing that Robert Plant would shut the fuck up. His voice irritates the fuck out of me. That being said, I really think John Paul Jones is an amazing musician and is entirely too overshadowed by the other members. I love Jimmy Page's guitar playing, especially the acoustic stuff. White Summer/Black Mountain Side is one of my favourite songs ever. Bonham was ummmm powerful. Edit: I meant to say that I prefer "Little Zeppelin" aka Heart. Great band, great singer, HEAVY sound. Love the Wilson sisters and crew.

PS I really don't like Stairway To Heaven.

The song remains the same is an album, I believe that it is live recordings that follow along as the sondtrack to the movie of the same title.

Just to confirm what Dan the Man said: (sort of anyway) The Song Remains the Same is the soundtrack from the movie of the same name. All live material, not really a studio "album".

Led Zeppelin is an amazing band. How can you not like Led Zeppelin?

Since May, they've about edged out The White Stripes as my 3rd favorite band (#1 The Beatles, #2 The Rolling Stones). Jimmy Page is my favorite guitarist. In his playing there was such emotion, power, beauty, inventiveness, sexuality, playfulness even. Sure he could be sloppy live sometimes but he got where he was going. I like Robert Plant's voice, but I totally understand why some might not. John Bonham was fucking amazing. There will never be another drummer like Bonzo. I agree that John Paul Jones is very underrated. Sometimes I'll listen just to what he's playing on a track or in a show and it's so great. Their music was so multi-faceted, like different "colors" Prince once said. I can pretty much forgive their ripping off other music, too. Look what they did with it! My favorite Led Zeppelin album is probably Led Zeppelin III. Led Zeppelin II, IV, Physical Graffiti, it's a tough choice... ^_^

Having been a fan of Led Zeppelin since I first got into music, I bought their live DVD and How the West Was Won upon release last year. Then they sat on the shelf until very early one morning this May, when I got a whim to watch the DVD. I put in disc 2 first. "Immigrant Song," "Black Dog," "Misty Mountain Hop"--rocking my ass off! It was too early in the morning. I had to restrain myself from screaming & hollering like a mad groupie. And then, ahhh--the amazing point at the end of "Misty Mountain Hop" where Jimmy Page solos into "Since I've Been Loving You." I just about spontaneously combusted! I was a changed woman. I played their albums (almost) ceaselessly. I read the excellent bio Hammer of the Gods right away, plus whatever 1970s interviews I could find (like this one and this one). Most of all the DVD set me off on a quest to hear more live Led Zeppelin. If you don't have it, buy the DVD! Fuck The Song Remains the Same! DVD is the shit.

After a couple months wasted downloading mp3 versions of bootlegs on Soulseek, I discovered bit torrent and the goldmine of live Led Zeppelin that is the Presence Server Tracker. B) I've acquired nearly 200 shows since then. Joy! Each year from 1969-73, 1975 & 1977 has amazing shows. In case you're interested, some essential shows are, IMO: 1969-04-27 Fillmore San Francisco; 1969.11.07 San Francisco; 1970-03-07 Casino de Montreux; 1970.09.04 LA Forum, Inglewood (known as Live on Blueberry Hill); the newly discovered 1970.09.19 evening show at Madison Square Garden, NYC; 1971.08.31 Orlando; 1971.09.09 Hampton, VA; their 1971 tour of Japan; Los Angeles-area shows in June 1972; all the shows played in March 1973 in Germany & Austria; 1973.05.31 LA Forum, Inglewood (Bonzo's Birthday Party); 1973.06.02 San Francisco; 1973.07.17 Seattle; 1975.02.12 NYC; the LA Forum March 1975 "Deep Throat" shows; the Earl's Court 1975 shows; 1977.04.27 Cleveland; 1977.06.21 LA Forum, Inglewood (known as Listen to This Eddie). Ehh, there's too damn many! Anyway... check out their live stuff. I've always got it when I'm on the Hub. :)

No way! Their worst album is absolutely In Through the Out Door. Jimmy Page was so smacked out (not cocaine--get it right, emily! ;)) he barely showed up to the sessions, especially since he so disliked the songs John Paul Jones and Robert Plant were coming up with. With JPJ at the reigns of the recording sessions at ABBA-owned Polar Studios in Sweden, it's bleh. Synthesizers, glossy sounding, not enough Jimmy. And Plant's awful flat singing--his voice was pretty shot by then--really turns me off "Fool in the Rain." No. Presence on the other hand rocks like a motherfucker. "Nobody's Fault But Mine," "Achilles Last Stand," "Hots On For Nowhere," "Candy Store Rock," "Tea For One." Great stuff. Presence can be a bit of a grower for some, I've heard. Maybe not as good as what came before (some argue it is)... It still pisses all over ITTOD from a great height! :P


what is the name of that song that goes:
  "Hay hay momma, why You treat me mean?"

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

Those lyrics are from the song "Black Country Woman," which is on Physical Graffiti.

I totally agree with this. There was this one time when I was listening to "Black Dog" and the room exuded pure hottness.

I have an annual Zeppelin craze. Once a year, it varies when, I crave nothing but Zeppelin and it's all I listen to for a week. Everything I got - which as of last year is every studio album plus Coda. I even listen to Presence.
My favorite Zep:
Hey Hey What Can I Do?
Gallows Pole
Tangerine
When The Levee Breaks

My least favorite Zep:
the weak stuff off Physical Grafitti
Black Dog
Whole Lotta Love

Thank you PeppermintSwirlGirl. Your post was a joy to read.

I grew up on Led Zeppelin, & saw them on The Song Remains the Same tour (Fulton County stadium, Atlanta). My favorite songs from the show were the opening Rock 'n Roll bleeding into Celebration Day, & No Quarter).

The II album was the first music I ever heard on headphones. Listening to What Is & What Should Never Be" w/ the stereo separation & all was a seminal moment for me as a HS freshman (that & Paranoid by Black Sabbath, haha).

I still like the IV album best (Black Dog will always stand out to me). The 1st 4 songs (particularly Since I've Been Loving You) from the III are great. The 1st album had Communication Breakdown & You Shook Me (Pages guitar in that live cut is very powerful). Physical grafitti had lots of good cuts... Custard Pie, Kashmir, etc.. Nobodys Fault but Mine was great from Presence, as was In the Evening from In Through the Out Door, but all the other songs on those 2 albums pretty much sucked.

Sadly, the whole classic rock/ dinosaur rock thing has about ruined Stairway to Heaven, Whole Lotta Love, etc.. "Hammer of the Gods" showed how fucked-up the band was (wretched excess to the nth degree), but their music holds up.
