Led Zeppelin I - 1969

Updated on December 12, 2012

Led Zeppelin's Debut Album

As it turned out, Led Zeppelin's infamous 1969 debut album was indicative of the decade to come--one that, fittingly, this band helped define with its decadently exaggerated, bowdlerized blues-rock. In shrieker Robert Plant, ex-Yardbird Jimmy Page found a vocalist who could match his guitar pyrotechnics, and the band pounded out its music with swaggering ferocity and Richter-scale-worthy volume. Pumping up blues classics such as "I Can't Quit You Baby" and "How Many More Times". The band also hinted at things to come with manic "Communication Breakdown" and the lumbering set stopper "Dazed and Confused." --Billy Altman
