Led Zeppelin Releases 50th Anniversary Series Of Led Zeppelin IV
Check It Out
It’s been almost fifty years since Led Zeppelin shook the rock ‘n roll industry to its core by dropping the musical masterpiece Led Zeppelin IV. It showed the band at the height of their creative powers. A perfect record from beginning to end, there was no weak moment and no throwaway song.
To celebrate the LP’s 50th anniversary, Led Zeppelin launched a video series that focused on each track. For the first episode, it was about the lead single “Black Dog”.
They came up with the title “Black Dog” since a nameless black Labrador retriever often wandered the grounds at Headley Range.
“Headley Grange was cold, damp, dirty, smelly,” Jones Paul Jones told Mojo’s Mark Blake in a new interview. “I remember walking into my room and thinking, Oh really? I had to steal someone’s electric fire.”
Led Zeppelin, in the spirit of keeping up with the times, also joined the popular social media app TikTok. They’re the latest among classic rock bands who joined the platform. It’s a great way of introducing iconic songs to Gen Zers. Also, Led Zeppelin made over 100 of their songs, basically their entire discography including the deep cuts.
Their first-ever authorized documentary, Becoming Led Zeppelin, premiered in September at the 2021 Venice Film Festival.
