Rock Chronology #228: Rock and Roll


“Rock and Roll”, Led Zeppelin, 1971.

“Rock and Roll” is another one of those iconic Led Zeppelin songs. Really, it’s amazing to me how many amazing Led Zeppelin songs came from one album. If they had never released the Led Zeppelin IV album, Led Zeppelin still would be remembered as one of the greatest bands that ever lived. But once you factor in Led Zeppelin IV they enter a whole new category of Rock Legend.

“Rock and Roll” was actually released as a single in the US and it peaked at #47 on the Billboard Hot 100. Although that doesn’t really matter because everyone was buying the album instead of the single. Led Zeppelin IV is one of the best selling albums of all time with over 23 million sold in the US alone.
