Led Zeppelin have inspired a huge range of bands and musical artists since their heyday. The big names include Deep Purple, Queen, Black Sabbath, Megadeth, Tool, and even alternative bands like Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkin.
-Their record breaking tours
The tours that they went on were huge, particularly during the later part of their career before the first split. Not only did they draw massive crowds, but they also earned the band a reputation befitting any rock group.
-Their influence on heavy metal
They are recognized as one of the bands that helped to create and form heavy metal as a genre, thanks to their heavy guitar driven sound. Of course, this does not mean they were stuck in one place. They also performed in the styles of blues, folk music, and psychedelia.
