Led Zeppelin have developed a bespoke playlist generator where fans can build a playlist using any track from the Led Zeppelin catalogue. Yep, that's including all their studio and live albums plus the deluxe editions released over the last few years. And to help launch the service, which runs on Spotify, YouTube, Deezer and their website, they've roped in some famous rock stars to show us how it's done.

'The Lemon Song'
'St. Tristan’s Sword' (Rough Mix)
'Traveling Riverside Blues' (BBC Sessions)
'Out On The Tiles'
Before getting the final Spotify, YouTube or Deezer link, White will have used this software on the Zeppelin website which is a lot more aesthetically pleasing to spend time on.
Fans of a pointless but fulfilling statistics such as the percentage of people who also chose a particular track by Zeppelin will find the playlist generator fun to use. White - the bonafide muso he is - unsurprisingly picked a track that onl 0.5% of people pick.
Maná - the most successful Mexican rock band going - on the other hand picked fairly straight hits. You can hear their playlist here.
And Royal Blood's Zeppelin playlists here features a couple of intriguing BBC Sessions. And Mike Kerr from the band has this to say about Zeppelin: "Led Zeppelin’s magic has always been about the chemistry that existed between the four members,' says Kerr. 'Nearly 50 years on and the quality of the songs, the guts and the swag on these recordings, is untouched.'
