* AlbumTitleDrop: You could technically say that the closer on 'Anthem Of A Peaceful Army', 'Anthem', is a loose version of this trope.
** ''From the Fires'' gets it's name from a lyric in the chorus of 'Black Smoke Rising'. This is not a straight example, however, as 'Black Smoke Rising', despite being on ''From the Fires'', was released a year before as part of the ''Black Smoke Rising'' EP.

Greta Van Fleet is a Hard Rock/Blues Rock band formed in Michigan in 2012. The band consists of three Kiszka brothers: Josh (vocals), Sam (guitar) and Jake (bass) and Danny Wagner (drums). After a handful of years making the rounds locally, the band came to prominence in early 2017 with their song "Highway Tune". It immediately drew comparisons to Music/LedZeppelin, although a lot of these comparisons aren't exactly flattering. The band released their debut album, ''Anthem Of The Peaceful Army'', in October 2018.

* OvershadowedByControversy: For the reason above. The band is often criticized for sounding like Led Zeppelin and Josh in particular for sounding like Robert Plant and mimicking some of his gestures. Some argue it stalls the evolution of rock music, while some argue it's a nice change of pace. Their first album got a pretty uncompromisingly brutal review from Pitchfork's Jeremy Larson, who labeled it 'half-baked boomer fetishism'. This review is either extremely funny or extremely pretentious depending on who you ask.
