Go To

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 Led Zeppelin, although a lot of these comparisons aren't exactly flattering. The band released their debut album, Anthem Of The Peaceful Army, in October 2018.

  • From the Fires (EP) (2017)
  • Anthem Of The Peaceful Army (2018)


  • Album Title Drop: 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.
  • Band of Relatives: Twins Josh and Jake Kiszka are vocalist and guitarist, respectively, and their younger brother Sam plays bass.
  • Binary Suns: On the cover of Anthem Of The Peaceful Army.
  • Blues Rock
  • Epic Rocking: 'Age Of Man' and 'Lover, Leaver (Taker, Believer) both barely crack the six minute mark. Live versions of the latter, however, have exceeded twenty minutes.
  • Hard Rock: The band plays a very 70s inspired version of the genre, which has been a source of controversy.
