    Led Zeppelin Appreciation Thread

    Because the world could use a little more Lead.

    I would usually link a YouTube video of some sort but there are too many great Led Zeppelin videos and songs to count. In a bleak and dreary world it is always good to know there is still rays of light shining through the darkness, perhaps from a time 30 years past, but that era is when real music died. Some may claim me a tad nostalgic, i do not care.

    So without further adieu, let us begin appreciating the masters.

    P.S. R.I.P John Bonham

    I like Zep, but to be honest, they are the most overrated band I've ever seen.
    He is the life of guilds he has never joined.
    He once had a noobish moment- just to see what it felt like.
    If he were to defeat you in a duel, you would have to fight off the strong urge to thank him.
    He would be allowed to use speed hacks in Battlegrounds- if he needed them.
    The Lunar Elders have a holiday in which they honor him.
    He is- The Most Interesting Player in the World of Warcraft.

    They are so popular because they were so amazing. I am quick to judge things as overrated, but LZ does not number among them.

    I do not like Led Zeppelin.At all.But I appreciate them for being the ones to pretty much create metal.

    They are not overrated. The only reason people can say that is because they like 3 songs by them. Kashmir, Immigrant Song, and Stairway to Heaven. Those are well known by the general population who have heard the name. I guarantee most people think Led Zeppelin is a person, not a band. Imo the best song I've ever heard is "The Battle of Evermore". The acoustic in that song blows my mind.

    Nah, i've listened more deep into Zep and just don't think much of them. I don't think of them as this "legendary" band. They're okay, but nothing special.

    I really have to disagree with you Sethbob, Led Zeppelin is one of those bands that if you listen to their music you can almost feel like you are wandering into their soul; a thing I think many performers lack now a' days.

    Zeppelin is overrated, when you get down to it, all they do is moan. It sounds awesome at first but gets at you after a while.

    You can tell WoW changed the MMO for good when players started complaining about the amount of time they sink, into a time sink.

    My first real encounter with Led Zeppelin was about 12 years ago. I was 15 and randomly grabbed a one of the tapes my dad recorded for my mum when they were still together. Black Dog blasted out into the living room and I was blow away. I'd just started playing the guitar and the riffs mesmerized me. For me personally, they're not overrated. It's my favourite non-contemporary (as in when you start listening to a band way after their glory days) band.

    I get what you mean, and to some degree agree with music not having that affect now, but it doesn't change my opinion on them. It's like Pink Floyd's "The Wall". I can listen to that straight through with my headphones on, in complete quiet, and it's really mesmerizing to get into, and that doesn't happen with a lot of other bands/artists I listen to, but that doesn't make them better or even higher on my, say, top 10.

    Even if I liked Led Zeppelin, they are one of those bands whose song you listen to about half of because it's boring. It's a good song, sure, but you're done with it pretty quick and find something better.

    In my opinion they're the greatest band of all time, Ramble On kicks ass.

    have you heard of the beatles? or the rolling stones? or hell, even aerosmith? those are the most overrated bands of all time.

    don't get me wrong, late-psycodelic beatles is pretty good, but they are still extremely overrated.

    led zeppelin = greatest rock band of all time.

    I agree with Aerosmith. Stones/Beatles not so much.
    I feel that Led zepplin came and went before they could start making crap.
