Led Zeppelin Releases 'Rock and Roll' Video That Isn't a Car Commercial



Three days from now, Led Zeppelin fans will get treated to a whole bounty of new goodies to geek out on. On Oct. 27, the band releases expanded, remastered versions its early '70s classics Led Zeppelin IV and Houses of the Holy. To get us to run out and buy them (or maybe a new Cadillac), they've shared a new animated video for 1971's iconic hit "Rock and Roll."

Check out the video below:



Back on Oct. 16, the vaults opened up for a rare alternate mix of "Rock and Roll" that will appear on the Led Zeppelin IV re-release. Previously, rare alternate versions of "Rain Song" and "Black Dog" hit the internet.

"'Rock and Roll' has just got that cheeky energy about it," Jimmy Page told Rolling Stone. "It's a party. 'It's been a long time since I rock and rolled.' It says it all, really. It's great lyrics and it's a great performance."

"As a song, it was actually kind of punky; pre-punk," bassist/keyboardist John Paul Jones said. "It was really fast too, onstage anyway. It just got really quick, a lot of energy. It's a lot of fun to play. The crowd loved it. We loved it."

The reissues of 1971's Led Zeppelin IV and 1973's Houses of the Holy drop Oct. 27 via Atlantic/Swan Song. Each reissue will contain a bounty of unreleased bonus tracks (on both CD and vinyl, regular and deluxe). Both will be included in a box set, which also contains a coffee table book and a print of the cover art.
