16 Awesome Led Zeppelin Covers

mwledzeppelin_300x240.jpg

By Andrea Kszystyniak

Trent Reznor and Karen O recently released a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” for the soundtrack to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. We liked it so much, we went on a search for some other covers of Zeppelin classics. These bad boys revolutionized music — who wouldn’t want to imitate them? The awesome covers listed below may make you wanna “Bron-Y-Aur Stomp” the night away, feel like you yourself are ascending the “Stairway to Heaven” or leave you just plain “Dazed and Confused.”

Glad they remembered the Elliott Smith and Jeff Buckley covers...but surprised they left off Tool's No Quarter.

I'm also partial to the Flaming Lips TSRTS.

Yeah some could have been left off, but I'm really digging the "Immigrant Song" cover!

I saw this article a few days ago. Some good ones there. Not always the easiest band to do a cover version of.

Jeff Beck using his guitar to mimic Robert Plant's screaming vocal line from The Immigrant Song as he played with Jimmy Page at the 2009 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Blind Melon once did a cover of a LZ song...don't remember which one though..........

Out on the Tiles.

Joe Bonamassa''s cover of Tea For One should have been on there, but hes not 'popular' enough or whatever.

To the contrary, I'd say Joe Bonamassa is fairly well known (I heard of him as far back as his band Bloodline in the early 90s and I'm sure I'm not alone), it probably has more to do with Paste not being aimed at the traditional Zeppelin fan (or at least the ones I see reflected here that have a near zero sense of musical adventure). Thus, the inclusion of artists such as Elliot Smith and Jeff Buckley. Plus, it's like any list, there's no way everyone's favorites are ever going to be included.

Definitely one of the best Zep covers ever. Love it!
