Film: The Song Remains the Same
The Song Remains The Same is a 1976 concert film (or Rockumentary) about Led Zeppelin. It is directed by Peter Clifton and Joe Massot, produced by Peter Grant, and stars John Bonham, John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page, and Robert Plant.

This Rockumentary shows three Led Zeppelin concerts filmed at Madison Square Garden in 1973.

Should not be confused with the Revolution episode "The Song Remains The Same" and the Supernatural episode "The Song Remains The Same". Should not be confused with the trope The Song Remains the Same.

This film provides examples of:

  • Mind Screw: There are a lot of confusing moments, such as at the beginning of this rockumentary.
  • Professional Killer: The producer Peter Grant and tour manager Richard Cole are filmed as hitmen driving to the Hammerwood Park estate in Sussex in a 1928 Pierce-Arrow car and shoot everyone there.
  • Rule of Symbolism: There are several fantasy sequences that pop up, and their purpose is to explain the individual personalities in the band.
