YMMV: The Yardbirds
  • Covered Up: Possibly their version of Howlin' Wolf's "Smokestack Lightning"; it certainly became strongly associated enough with them that other bands in the London scene eventually stopped playing it.
    • Aerosmith's 1974 cover of "Train Kept A-Rollin'", itself a rockabilly cover, might be better known than the Yardbirds' version.
  • Face of the Band: They're probably best known today for having three of rock's most highly regarded guitarists in their line-up at one point or another, but back then Keith Relf was the real face.
