* {{Pun}}: Aside from the title of "D'yer Mak'er", the cover of ''Led Zeppelin II'' manages to have a 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 UsefulNotes/WorldWarI, 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''.

* PirateSong: "Immigrant Song", a song about vikings:
-->We come from the land of the ice and snow,\\
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.\\
How soft your fields so green. Can whisper tales of gore.\\
Of how we calmed the tides of war. We are your overlords.\\
Always sweep with threshing oar,\\
Our only goal will be the western shore.\\
So now you'd better stop and rebuild all your ruins.\\
For peace and trust can win the day despite of all your losing.

** Kashmir has the line "I am a traveler of both time and space". It's obvious [[Series/DoctorWho what]] it is referring to.

* {{Plagiarism}}:
** For all their instrumental skills, Led Zeppelin plagiarized other songs on occasion without bothering to credit the original songwriters, which later resulted in either lawsuits ("Whole Lotta Love", "Bring It On Home", "The Lemon Song", "Boogie with Stu" had their song credits altered as a result of them) or corrections ("Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" was mistakenly assumed by Page to be a traditional song but was contacted by its writer Anne Bredon, leading him to change the credits).
** "Bring It On Home", due to the intro and outro being an homage to Sonny Boy Williamson's song while the middle was actually an original Page / Plant composition, had to be split in two for ''How the West Was Won'', with the middle part separated into its own song and renamed "Bring It On Back".
** The most notable bit of plagiarism was "The Lemon Song", a song ripped off note for note from Music/HowlinWolf's "Killing Floor". What makes it particularly jarring is that, by the time it was recorded for ''Music/LedZeppelinII'', the song was already a hit amongst the rock community, with it being covered by other famous acts of the period like Albert King, Electric Flag and The Music/JimiHendrix Experience, with the latter using it to open their famous set at the Monterey International Pop Festival. It didn't help that the band even referred to the song by its original title at various points before recording it. Chess Records sued in the early seventies and reached a settlement that saw Wolf's name added to the writing credits.
** "Dazed and Confused" was a folk rock song by Jake Holmes, who opened for Music/TheYardbirds. Jimmy Page stole the song and reworked it significantly, keeping only the basic melody, but changing all the lyrics. The song appeared without credit to Holmes on all album releases until ''Celebration Day'' in 2012, when he was credited for inspiring the song. This was due to an out-of-court settlement between Page and Holmes.
** Averted with "Stairway to Heaven"; On the 23rd of June, 2016, Led Zeppelin won a lawsuit that accused the band of plagiarizing Spirit's song "Taurus" in the opening riff of Stairway, after many years of speculation and fierce debate.

* ChristianRock: Seriously, their [[CoverVersion covers]] of "In My Time Of Dying" and "Nobody's Fault but Mine" are this. Interestingly they were both originally gospel blues songs by Blind Willie Johnson.
