Want Led Zeppelin lyrics? We've got them and more...
Who would have known? From the ashes of a group called 'The New Yardbirds' would come the heavy metal rock power and dominating music lyrics of a band more popularly known as Led Zeppelin.
Even now, the mere mention of this group's name can cause a heated debate on whether their style and song lyrics border on being demonic or a testament to their genius. A little bit of both? One thing we do know for sure � Led Zeppelin's style and music lyrics made history.
Jimmy Page started it all when his group, The Yardbirds, called it quits in 1968. However, since he had some Yardbirds tour dates to fulfill, he hastily put together a band. Jimmy watched Robert Plant perform at a teacher training college and was impressed and so convinced him to sign on. From there, Robert insisted on bringing John Bonham on board as the group's drummer and boy did he do this job well!
To date, die hard fans - and even those who are not � can hardly refute the praise that John Bonham may well be the greatest drummer of all time. John Paul Jones came on board as the bass guitarist and after only three weeks of rehearsals, The New Yardbirds were born.
After only four months of being together Led Zeppelin released its first self-titled debut album, reaching the Billboard's Top Ten after two short months. Although the style and music lyrics of this first album is said to be more blues-driven, their second album, Led Zeppelin II, transitioned Led Zeppelin into a heavy metal rock band. One album came after the other and all hit platinum. In fact, Led Zeppelin was so successful that they broke the box-office record set by the Beatles in 1973.
The group ended in 1980 when John Bonham died of asphyxiation. Still, with only 12 years of actively being together, Led Zeppelin has sold approximately 200 million albums worldwide. A testament that their style and music lyrics made such an impact that faithful followers are only too willing to ensure that their music lives on.
