Pretty fucking blatant. Shameless.

Haha, they just excised the neo-paganism and popped in Blues and resolved on a major chord instead of a minor and updated the build-up for the audience with ADD and filtered it through the White Stripes When They Were Good - sound. ...love that fucking cannons-going-off drum sound though. ...The fact that you felt you had to post Stairway To Heaven to prove it, is very saddening. Everyone should have every fret squeak and reverb trail-off from that song brain-etched.

I don't mind this for a few reasons.
- This type of music seems to be disappearing, so if there's more cool shit in this vain I'm all for it.
- Led Zeppelin did a lot of borrowing themselves from what I've read.
- It's different enough.

black keys "ripped off" blues musicians, so did Zep.
overlaps ensue.
