* CoverVersion: You know they've had their share. Examples include, but are not limited to: ''Babe I'm Gonna Leave You'', ''You Shook Me'', ''I Can't Quit You Babe'', ''Bring It On Home'', ''Gallows Pole'', ''When The Levee Breaks'', ''Boogie With Stu'', etc. And with a band like Zeppelin, some overlapping with [[CoveredUp Cover Up]] is to be expected.

The band have written their fair share of famous classic hard rock songs that sometimes get overplayed like hell on AOR/"classic rock" radio for new generations to get annoyed, such as: "Dazed And Confused" ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTsvs-pAGDc total]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ffBRhtWjEQ cover!]]), "Whole Lotta Love" ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pM8_HuQ0b34 cover]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LkQpZpFLpv4 as well!]]), "Heartbreaker"[[SiameseTwinSongs /]]"Living Loving Maid", "Immigrant Song", "Black Dog", "Rock And Roll", "Stairway To Heaven", "When The Levee Breaks" ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=swhEa8vuP6U cover too!]]), "Kashmir" and "Trampled Under Foot". Don't peg them as simple noise-merchants, though, because their discography's really varied and sometimes experimental, ranging from BluesRock and acoustic FolkRock to Eastern-influenced material, {{Funk}}, ProgressiveRock and weirder. They're widely respected for their superior musical abilities, eclectic tastes, and legendary concerts and well-known for their infamous exploits (such as the "[[NoodleIncident shark episode]]"), among others. Also, pretty much any rock and metal band formed since owes them at least a bit, whether they admit to it or not.

* TheDrifter: Song-wise, Plant has often mentioned that he has to leave his girlfriend or some town or whatever because he has to "ramble on" or something like that, for example: "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You", "Ramble On", "Bron-Y-Aur Stomp", "Misty Mountain Hop" and "Going To California".

** Page never bothered to acknowledge the fact that "Stairway To Heaven"'s opening guitar melody was taken from Spirit's "Taurus". (This is as of late 2014 the subject of a lawsuit in Pennsylvania, and Page has denied the plagiarism. There's been at least one analysis done that asserts that [[http://www.forbes.com/sites/oliverherzfeld/2014/05/21/spirit-v-led-zeppelin-analysis-of-the-stairway-to-heaven-infringement-lawsuit/ it's not necessarily plagiarism]] but the courts haven't decided yet.)

* ControlFreak: Almost everybody in or near the band, to various degrees...
** Jimmy, for being sole producer and even admitting he changed engineers for the first three albums just to make it clear ''he'' was the architect of the band's sound. A good example of this would be the recording of "You Shook Me" as described by Jimmy:

* IncrediblyLamePun: Aside from the title of "D'yer Mak'er", the cover of ''Led Zeppelin II'' manages to have an {{Incredibly Lame|Pun}} VisualPun. The story goes like this: designer David Juniper, asked to just come up with something "interesting", took a photo of Manfred "The Red Baron" von Richthofen and his Flying Circus from the UsefulNotes/FirstWorldWar, filtered it and airbrushed the band members' heads onto the bodies. All good. He then put in manager Peter Grant and tour manager Richard Cole's heads. So far so good. But then, you notice there's a woman on the cover too, namely actress Glynis Johns. You may ask what she has to do with Led Zeppelin. The answer is: bugger-all. She was just thrown on there because she has [[NamesTheSame a similar name]] to Glyn Johns, who engineered the band's first album. One wonders why Juniper even bothered, since Glyn's brother Andy replaced him as engineer for ''II''.



* ItWillNeverCatchOn: "This band will never work--it'll go over like a Lead Zeppelin!"
** [[FromACertainPointOfView Technically]] true, though: the Page-Beck-Hopkins-Entwistle-Moon lineup never did catch on.

* NobodyLovesTheBassist: John Paul Jones is often forgotten. Jones himself didn't mind, and took advantage of his relative lack of recognition to walk around the streets of where they toured.
