robert plant is a slimy fuck
john bonham man, he really sucked
those greedy fuckers, those phoney shits
they made their money off idiots

i hate led zeppelin

12 dollar concerts were all the rage
they bought cocaine for jimmy Paige
"stairway to heaven" makes me see red
bonzo's buried, only three more left

i hate led zeppelin

    General CommentI think they're just trying to get a rise out of people. Even if they weren't, why would you get bent out of shape over a song like this? Hahaha

    General CommentI love Screeching Weasel AND Led Zeppelin. With that said, this song is GREAT! All these celebrity worshiping, sycophantic Led Zep fans who are getting their panties in a bunch over this song need to calm the fuck down! I respect Screeching Weasel for talking shit about the one band nobody ever talks shit about. Also, TruthSpeaker\'s comment is ridiculously stupid for several reasons: 1. He states that Screeching Weasel is \"obviously some gay ass new band\" yet they have been around since the early 80\'s when punk music was anything but cool. The popular stuff when Screeching Weasel came out (and when this song was made) was uber lame hair metal, soulless new wave wankery and dance/pop. 2. He states \"how could u hate led zeppelin and play rock music? it doesn\'t fucking fit\" - This comment shows that TruthSpeaker has bought into the VH1 propaganda that Led Zeppelin is somehow the inspiration for every band on earth since they existed. This is simply not true. Bands like Screeching Weasel were inspired by bands like the Ramones, who were inspired by 50\'s era rock n roll like Chuck Berry and who\'s goal was to KILL overly self indulgeant arena rock like Led Zeppelin. Again, I like Led Zeppelin but quite frankly the bands that they inspired ALL SUCK! In the 80\'s the bands inspired by Led Zep were Poison and Warrant and Motley Crue and those bands sucked so bad it was laughable. Today we have more lame bands like Three Doors Down, Nickleback and Creed who I am willing to bet would list Led Zeppelin as an influence. 3. He uses \"rape victims\" as an insult. What kind of human being would use THAT as an insult? Him making that statement just shows that those who despise punk simply are not thoughtful or intelligent or socially aware to understand it and are therefor afraid of it. 4. He played right into Screeching Weasel\'s hands by getting so sensitive about it. Bands shouldn\'t take themselves so seriously and neither should their fans. Getting this upset about somebody having a different opinion than you about a band can only be explained by one thing: CELEBRITY WORSHIP! Every Led Zep fan who gets angry over this song is no different than a 15 year old girl who gets mad if people insult her idol\'s Britney and Paris. There is a song called \"Joe Queer Sucks\" by the punk band Darlington that is about how they hate Joe Queer of the Queers and I like the song a lot and find it funny even though I love the Queers. Bottom line: everybody PLEASE lighten up and quit taking everything so seriously!

    General CommentHey, I'm a big Zep fan and I can chuckle at this one. It's just to get a rise out of people. Saying "Bonham sucks" is too over the top to be anything but a deliberate prod. Even if you hate the genre, anyone who's spent any time listening to the guy knows he's an unreal force. Yes, Led can seem pretentious, and they were pretty pompous in their later years, but it's like calling Bob Dylan a hack. Nobody with a pair of ears and an ounce of taste should take either attack seriously.

    Anyway, whoever said every band influenced since Led sucks... I've wondered that myself. What's the deal? There's so damn much to be taken from them, yet nobody comes close. Most just make a mockery of rock. (Although we do have Dave Grohl, no matter what your opinion of Foo is.)

    My OpinionEveryone hates one band. I think this song was written for people who want to give their opinion on music taste, but it is always told to shut up by his close minded, mtv and radio manipulated friends. I hate led zeppelin too, maybe because they are so fucking overrated people who made money from writting songs when they were high. Or maybe i hate them for writting the slowest piece of shit garbage song ever written (ahem, stairway to heaven). This is my OWN opinion and i know some brainwashed led zeppelin fan will take as an offence. What i've done is almost the same as Screeching Weasel did, we only gave up our own opinion as no one has the right to shut us up.
    By the way, how on earth is led zeppelin heavy metal?

    General Commentoh, a punk song. (least I think it is). I think their hate is aimed in the wrong direction, it should be towards Led Zeppelin's ignorant elitist fans.

    General CommentZep has elitist fans? Punks are the most elitist snobs ever, and they can't play their instruments. I should know, I am friends with some punks, and know a bunch. Also, as punks, they have no right to say Bonham sucks, dumbasses.

    General CommentIf this song pissed you off guess what? you played right into the bands hands. Thats exactly what they wanted.

    I love punk rock and classic rock (love led zep)

    Truthspeaker: this band is not in new They been around almost 20 years. But as far as them being "Gayass" they did write a song called 'I wanna be a homosexual" so maybe your right
