Communication Breakdown (3:05)

Cover of Led Zeppelin

From Led Zeppelin and 152 other releases

This blistering proto-punk anthem was inspired the Eddie Cochran song “Nervous Breakdown”.

It subsequently influenced Johnny Ramone’s “all-downstroke” style of guitar playing.

Page developed the riff during the band’s first tour in Scandinavia, when they were still playing as The New Yardbirds. It was one of the first songs Jimmy Page and Robert Plant worked on together.
