Awesome Led Zeppelin

Immigrant Song: Jazz Edition

Immigrant Song: Jazz Edition

Singer Robyn Adele Anderson applies her smooth and emotive vocals to this unique cover version of Led Zeppelin’s classic Immigrant Song. The jazzy arrangement is very different from the original’s aggressive guitars and wailing vocals, but it’s no less intriguing.

Stairway to Heaven: Russian Edition

Stairway to Heaven: Russian Edition

The Osipov State Russian Folk Orchestra is best known for their classic Russian tunes, but they also enjoy the occasional rock and roll song. Here, their balalaika section performs a cover of the 1971 Led Zeppelin classic Stairway to Heaven. We had no idea that a contrabass balalaika was a thing.

Marcin Patrzalek is one of the most talented guitarists we’ve ever heard. Listen to his amazing fingerstyle arrangement of Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir performed in an unlikely place – inside a parking garage. Be sure to check out his YouTube and TikTok channels for more incredible music, like his cover of Still D.R.E.

Stairway to Heaven: Parrot Edition

Stairway to Heaven: Parrot Edition

Frank Maglio’s Amazon parrot Tico likes to sing along when Frank gets out his guitar. So sit back and enjoy a avian little serenade as the bird does its best Robert Plant impression, and embellishes Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven with a bit of whistling.

Transformers x Led Zeppelin

Transformers x Led Zeppelin

The Cybertronic Spree is a Transformers-themed tribute band who plays a variety of cartoon, videogame, and anime theme songs dressed in awesome costumes. During a 2019 concert, they also performed a truly entertaining cover of Led Zeppelin’s emphatically chanted Immigrant Song.

Puddles: Stairway to Gilligan’s Island

Puddles: Stairway to Gilligan’s Island

Back in 1978, Little Roger and the Goosebumps figured out that the lyrics to the theme from Gilligan’s Island lined up perfectly with Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven. While we loved the novelty of the classic mashup, Puddles Pity Party really ramped up the vocals and theatricality. Oh, and on a related note…

Whole Lotta Love Fingerstyle

Whole Lotta Love Fingerstyle

Musician Luca Stricagnoli continues to wow us with his acoustic fingerstyle guitar performances, this time taking on the 1969 Led Zeppelin rock classic Whole Lotta Love. It’s certainly got a different texture without Jimmy Page’s memorable electric guitar sound, but it’s still pretty awesome.

Jimmy Page’s ’59 Telecaster

Jimmy Page’s ’59 Telecaster

Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page was once bequeathed a 1959 Fender Telecaster guitar. With a little help from Page himself, the animators at Nexus Studios share the mystical story of this illustrious and iconic instrument. Fender sells a replica of the psychedelic dragon guitar here.

Stairway to Heaven: Japanese Style

Stairway to Heaven: Japanese Style

A quartet of musicians perform a soothing cover version of Led Zeppelin’s 1971 classic in a classic Japanese style, played on 21-string Nijugen-Kotos and wooden flutes. It’s reminiscent of Regina Spektor’s fantastic cover version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps.

Whole Lotta Love vs. Beethoven’s 5th

Whole Lotta Love vs. Beethoven’s 5th

The 2CELLOS take on Led Zeppelin and Beethoven’s classics in another one of their highly energetic stage performances. Or rather, two stage performances. Also, these guys must go through bows and strings like water.

Kawehi: Ramble On

Kawehi: Ramble On

Multitalented musician Kawehi’s latest track is yet another wonderful cover version, made entirely her own. While it might not be immediately apparent, she’s transformed Led Zeppelin’s classic track Ramble On into a punchy electro-pop groove.

Zeppelin!

The 2014-15 Louisville Leopard Percussionists, aged 7 to 12 practice a medley of Led Zeppelin classics Kashmir, The Ocean and Immigrant Song, played on marimbas, xylophone, vibraphone, drums, timbales, congas, bongos and piano.

Heart and Jon Bonham’s son Jason play Stairway to Heaven at the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors, in front of Led Zeppelin and other awardees. It left us with cold hands and goosebumps.
