Band Name Origins:

  • They were told their band was gonna go up like a lead Zeppelin, which won't go up very well at all. They changed the lead into led so Americans wouldn't pronounce it "leed" zeppelin Submitted by: Spike
  • The John Entwhistle/Keith Moon joke supergroup explanation is reputedly the correct one, but it was Led Zeppelin's manager Peter Grant who took out the "a" to avoid promoters mispronouncing the name as "leed". Submitted by: Mark T

Comments & Submitter Name
"Robert Plant""As much as I love Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant's true uncompromising heart and emotions never shined through the wall of loud drums and guitars as much as they ended up doing when Zep broke up and Plant went solo. There's a strange and beautiful "mysticism" present in Plant's solo music that seems absent in the tunes of Zep. (Although I will admit that Zep's music had a mysticism all it's own! Just in a "rock band" sense...) Listening to Robert Plant is like listening to Zep with any last air of youthful foolishness and pretentiousness stripped away. The term "an artist who has matured" seems to be misused on those who have gone the way of selling out to pop culture and writing sappy ballads, but Robert Plant stands as one of the only artists to whom the aforementioned phrase actually rings true." - Kirk Bradford Myers

"Stairway To Heaven"
Better Lyrics:
There's a girl singing "Roar" on The 'Bowl halftime show
And she's riding a big shiny tiger.
She's so hot and she knows, in her flame-styled clothes
She's the bird we're enduring the game for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's riding a big shiny tiger.
Original Lyrics:
There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows, if the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Ooh, ooh, and she's buying a stairway to heaven.

Funniest Song Lyrics:

"Dancing Days"
The Funny Lyrics:
I saw a lion, he was standing alone with a tadpole in a jar.

The Funny Lyrics:
And let me tell you, when she walks, she walks
And let me tell you, when she talks, she talks

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Dancing Days"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I told your mamma I'd get you home,
but I didn't tell her I had no car
I saw a lion he was standing alone
with a tadpole in a jar
Why They're Nonsensical:
Okay, so this seems like a non-sequitur. The rest of the song is equally nonsensical, as well.

"Black Dog"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
I don't know but I been told
A big legged woman ain't got no soul.

Inappropriate Song Lyrics:

"Whole Lotta Love"
The Inappropriate Lyrics:
I wanna be your back door man
Why They're Inappropriate:
I don't know that this lyric is funny, but I think that it could have another meaning aside from he wants to do her up the butt. Maybe he wants to be her secret lover and slip out the back door. She might have a boyfriend or he has a girlfriend and he just wants to come by and have fun with no commitments then leave her place unseen.

Scary Song Lyrics:

"No Quarter"
The Lyrics:
Close the door, put out the light. You know they won't be home tonight.
The snow falls hard and don't you know? The winds of Thor are blowing cold.
They choose the path where no-one goes.
Walking side by side with death, The devil mocks their every step
The snow drives back the foot that's slow, The dogs of doom are howling more
Why:
The 1st one is freaky, close the door put out the light, and they won't be home tonight. The winds of Thor? The snow falls hard? Chose the path where no one goes? What? Anything with the devil and walking side by side with death, freaky. Dogs of Doom? Howling?

Song Lawsuits:

"How Many More Times"
This song, from Led Zeppelin's first LP (1969) is a total ripoff of Howlin' Wolf's No Place To Go. Wolf sued and eventually won, belatedly getting his songwriting royalties. Zeppelin later stole credit for a Willie Dixon song on their second album. They were a great band but that doesn't excuse this kind of theft.

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"Record Label Name"
When the band had the option to start their own little label (like Apple by the Beatles, and Rolling Stones records and Mother Records by U2 and Paisley Park by Prince), they first wanted to name it "Slut Records". They were convinced to use the name "Swan Song" instead.
Submitted by: Jas Goodyear

Hidden Messages:

"Black Mountain Side"
The song starts during the fade-out of "Your Time Is Gonna Come" (the previous track on the album.) This is pretty hard to work out if you don't have a track counter, but you can spot it if, say, you have the CD reissue of the first Zep album.
Submitted by: A Stranger
"Tangerine"
In the intro the guitar suddenly fades out after a few seconds. Turn up the volume after it has to hear one of the band members counting the others in.

Backwards Messages:

"Stairway To Heaven"
Reverse any section of the song (except from the parts where there are no vocals) to find a message with a religious meaning. The most well-known one crops up in the verse starting with "if there's a bustle in your hedgerow". It says: "So here's to my sweet Satan. The one whose little path would make me sad Whose power is faith. He'll give those with him 666. There was a little toolshed where he made us suffer, sad Satan."
