Some Misconceptiopns About Led Zeppelin's Genre

Led Zeppelin


Recently I came across many people who said that Led Zeppelin is a metal band .. Actually, they are not completely wrong , But Not Completely Right either..!!

At the time of the 70's , Led Zeppelin's sound was quite very hard and heavy for people at that time and so they called Led Zeppelin as a Heavy Metal Band and thats also the reason why Led Zeppelin was a pioneer of the Metal Genre that we are familiar with Today ... But Later on, other still heavier bands like Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Slayer came forth and so, Led zeppelin then lost the ' Metal Tag' and was classified into the Hard Rock genre ...

Basically, Led zeppelin did not claim any genre ... they were just an experimental type of band which people at that time classified as Metal ( owing to the great heavy sound of Jimmy Page's Heavy Guitar Distortion ) and now are considered as a Hard Rock Band by many ...

I consider them a rock/blues band. But they can have their own genre, whatever anyone wants to call them is fine...they were the best.
