    Did Led Zeppelin share their wealth with JRR Tolkien?

    How many of their songs are about The Lord of the Rings or feature LOTR references?

    Don't forget Southern Blues. They covered "When the Levee Breaks," by Memphis Minnie and Kansas Joe McCoy.

    NPR had a pretty cool story about music from the 1927 floods yesterday. Led Zep got namechecked.

    It wasn't just Zeppelin... check out the lyrics to this Black Sabbath song, they've got medieval fantasy imagery on teh brain.






    LOTR just had a certain kind of underground 'cool' factor going during the '70s. A number of bands at the time picked up it, 'specially British bands, seems like.
    .
    Monkhouse: I want to go like my Dad did peacefully, in his sleep, not screaming in terror like his passengers.

    Sys: Holy crap. That guy deserves to be beaten with a metal floor pump.

    Plat: I'd rather fellate a syphilitic goat than own a Cervelo.

    EJ Dionne: Modern-day conservatism isn't conservatism. It's reaction rooted in deep pessimism that isn't in keeping with the American character.

    Seam: Saw Bjork poop onstage back in the day. It blew my teenage mind.
