I like a few of them, but some are meh.... 

STB does pretty good reactions. He has decided to go through the entire Zep catalogue which I find interesting.

No Life Shaq is a funny fucker. Good reactions to Zep.

It is fun to me to see young people who have not heard most of the great '70's rock-n-roll giving it a go and being completely blown away by the fact that the musicality is so front and centre - and so good. Some of them seem genuinely amazed/delighted at songs that have a minute or more intro piece before the song and singer gets underway (so to speak). Zep and other bands like Pink Floyd, Ted Nugent, even artists like Boz Scaggs reactions are like they are discovering a divine music they can't believe exists and can't believe they have not heard before or missed out on. To me it says a LOT about how the current generation are missing - and long for - a more substantive music experience. Not the disposable pop rubbish that seems to make up the mainstream offerings now. Who will remember the current crop of artists in 10 or 20 years from now? Most (like +95%) will be long forgotten.

You touch on an interesting subject. As much as we think Led Zeppelin was a bad ass band with a killer catalogue majority of Zeppelin fans during their existence were white males and females. Though it’s well documented how diverse their music was from beginning to end, (ie) Black mountain side, with the Indian styled tabla beats. (Personally love this song). 

Though majority of their concerts where played in America and never having toured Latin America Led Zeppelin up to 1971 were a “word of mouth band” so a lot of people of color weren’t introduced to Zeppelin when they had some amazing album coming out (ie) Marvin Gays 1971 (what going on) plus Stevie Wonder 1972 (Talking Book. ) 

with the internet we are witnessing another resurrection of classics rock bands that usually were not noticed by POC, example would be how a new group of MTV watchers of the 1980s discovered Led Zeppelin by them playing : The  song remains the same movie. ( I fall in that group) well now the Youtube generation are discovering the Mighty power of Led Zeppelin.

I like Soul Train Bro. He is genuine, he'll tell his viewers if he's heard a song before. If he doesn't like a song, he won't post the reaction. He's got a great voice for late night radio. 

This is his latest LZ reaction.

Soul Train Brother is the best. A lot of the reactions are from people with black blues and rap backgrounds who hear a lot of that in Zeppelins music. Also, the heavy bottom bass and drums production really surprises people.

I love STB! Great reactions and commentary. 

I had a thought the other day. Mr. EaglesOfOneNest and I were having lunch at a generic chain restaurant that's near where we work, so we eat there frequently. The only thing we HATE about it is the inane, bubblegum, auto-tune pop crap they play in the background. I'd rather hear silence, or even static and it's a major turn off (we are sensitive; there is a place by our house that we walked out of because of the dreaded REGGAETON on the sound system!). 

Anyway, brought up a question for me. Back in the golden era of classic rock; mid 1960's through late 1970's, was there some equivalent to the pop crap we have today and was it widely played (and then forgotten?). 25 years from now, will there be any memorable music from this era?

Even much of the pop songs of the 60's & 70's were pretty good, excellent compared to today's music. The 60's girls bands make the Spice Girls, Destiny's Child, and K-Pop all look like crap by comparison. The 70's pop with Seals & Croft, England Dan and John Ford Coley, Poco, Atlanta Rhythm Section, Ambrosia, 10CC and on and on were all good tunes and are still played today because they were well constructed songs with good writing. The problem with today's songs are recycled melodies, inane lyrics, and everything auto-tuned and / or pitch corrected.

When you sing a song you should do your best but its the real feel of a true vocal performance, the warmth and sincerity that makes all the difference. I would rather hear Patti Smith or Bob Dylan belt out a sincere performance vs. some auto-tuned or perfectly polished American Idol clone with zero sincerity and lack of unique style any day.

Bottom line is people just stopped trying and have relied 100% on technology and slick production to deliver what is in affect a golden turd.
