This is a Zep classic. Jimmy would agree. I never skip this song. Truly artistic and a pleasure to listen to!

I can't believe that this is one of the least liked Zep songs as per the polls. 

Don't give me that "each has his own opinion". 

You all don't know what you are listening to then.

I suggest you play it a million times until you get it!

Sorry, but it is a fact, and sooner or later you will realize that.

LOL.....

It did actually take me years to appreciate this, and now I agree it is a brilliant track. I held it as "best Zep track" for a short period of time.

I love it.

I agree,and the oddness or strangeness of the song really starts sounding more and more "accessible" the more you listen to

it. Although when I heard the song first in eigth grade I didn't really get it.

Wow...so refreshing to hear about your realization! I too was not sure the first few listens, but soon it was very apparent that Zep knew what they were doing.

I have always loved this song. It is quite simply Robert Johnson & Howling Wolf on crack, with a dash of hallucinogenics on the side.

Count me in, I've always liked HOT(R)H, it has some sort of spine chilling strange weirdness, it took my breath away when I first heard it, so different from everything else..

I love everything about Led Zeppelin III, this song included. It's a great and bizarre way to end the album.

I always loved this track.  It is the kind of track that makes Zeppelin, well, Zeppelin.

It's the only LZ track I could care less about. Wish they ended the album with HHWCID. Hats Off sounds like it should be a bonus track.

So you like ''Hats off..'' a little then....

When you want to colloquially express that you don’t care at all about something, you might say “I couldn’t care less.” This phrase first popped up in British English at the turn of the 20th century and is still popular today. In the 1960s, a controversial American variant of this phase entered popular usage: “I could care less.” Many native English speakers, both in the UK and US, find this expression to be logically flawed. If you couldn’t care less, then it’s impossible for you to care any less than you do. If you could care less, however (and you want to be taken literally), you’re saying that it is possible for you to care less than you care now. Those who take issue with this believe the later variant says very little about your level of caring, and so they fervidly avoid it.

C'mon man, I was ribbing you.  Now if you had said you "Don't care for Hats Off"....

Sorry bro. Bad day. I do not hate it at all, but it's my least favorite Zep song . Is that better? :)

Took me a while to come around to it, but I like it a lot. Zep III is one of my favorite albums. As I get older, I find that the Zep songs I didn't care for as a young and dumb youth are now some of my favorites.
