Led Zeppelin, released on January 12, 1969 (see 1969 in music), was the first album by the British blues/rock band Led Zeppelin.

Led Zeppelin created a large and devoted following for the band. Their then-unique proto-metal and psychedelic sound endeared them to a section of the counterculture on both sides of the Atlantic.

In 2003 the TV network VH1 named Led Zeppelin the 44th greatest album of all time.
