NO ONE can match Led Zeppelin. Where is the equivalent of THIS today? Simply put, NOTHING!!
I can't believe how many of these classic Led Zeppelin songs are covers.. they totally make them their own

that was pretty cool jd.
MY FAVORITE BAND OF ALL TIME TIMe TIme Time time ....
Tho the song could apply to any flood, its actually their remake of a 1929 tune about the 1927 Great Mississippi Flood, which partially destroyed areas that would get hit by Katrina nearly 80 years later. Bonzo's incredible drum sound in this tune comes from recording him while he & his kit were set up in a stairwell!
