Led Zeppelin Songs

One account of how the band that was to become one of the most successful, innovative, and influential rock groups in history got its name held that Keith Moon and John Entwistle had suggested that a supergroup with Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck would go down like a "lead balloon", an idiom for disastrous results."Lead" became Led to ensure proper pronunciation and balloon became Zeppelin, a word which, according to music journalist Keith Shadwick, brought "the perfect combination of heavy and light, combustibility and grace" to Page's mind.

Led Zeppelin went on to sell 200 to 300 million units worldwide and become the founders of modern heavy metal music. And don't even get me started on "Stairway to Heaven".
