Led Zeppelin

From: London, England

Active: 1969-1980

I first heard of them: when my friend Mike stopped wearing cartoon cat T-shirts to school and started wearing Led Zeppelin T-shirts

Sound: blues- and folk-inflected hard rock

Further listening: I'm not a Led Zeppelin fan — the only songs of theirs I've heard are the ones that played incessantly on classic rock radio back when I listened to classic rock radio — but I do like a handful of those. Here are a couple:

"When the Levee Breaks" (1971)
"Kashmir" (1975)
