Back when music didn’t require autotune:
“In late 1968, Led Zeppelin began pioneering a heavier, more metallic-sounding form of rock geared for FM radio’s new album-oriented stereo format. By combining a slashing electric guitar and wailing vocals with a rhythmic bass and locomotive drums, the band quickly became the darlings of better stereo systems and large indoor arenas—and inspired several generations of metal-driven rockers.
When “Whole Lotta Love” was released in October 1969, it appeared first on “Led Zeppelin II,” the band’s second album, and then as a single weeks later—with a shorter edit for AM radio. While the single reached No. 4 on Billboard’s pop chart, the album shot to No. 1 in November, and a three-month battle with the Beatles’ “Abbey Road” for the top spot ensued.”

Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated.
