* BritishRockstar: The band's penchant for backstage mayhem helped codify this trope.

* LoudnessWar: Averted on all issues of their albums to date. Jimmy Page is very much a perfectionist about sound quality and won't release something that's brickwalled. While original vinyl editions are often highly prized for obvious reasons, Page recently remastered their entire catalogue himself and it sounds great. George Marino's remasterings from TheNineties sound good too.

* FunetikAksent: On their manager Peter Grant's suggestion, they changed the spelling to "Led Zeppelin" to [[ViewersAreMorons prevent "thick Americans" from pronouncing it "leed"]].

Added DiffLines:

* RecordProducer: Jimmy Page produced the albums himself. He made a point of using different studios and engineers for each album to prove that he was in charge of the band's sound. John Paul Jones was also an experienced producer before joining the band.

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"/"Living Loving Maid", "Immigrant Song", "Black Dog", "Rock And Roll", "Stairway To Heaven" ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xd8AVbwB_6E the intro belonged to an earlier song!]]), "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.

** The most notable bit of plagiarism was "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 Music/JimiHendrix, with the latter using it to open his 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.
