Led Zeppelin premiere new video for “Rock and Roll”

Earlier this month, Led Zeppelin unearthed an alternative version of “Rock and Roll”, taken from the legendary band’s forthcoming deluxe reissue of 1971’s Led Zeppelin IV. Now, they’ve let loose its corresponding clip, a neat lyric video of sorts that’s chock-full of new and old concert footage.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, guitarist Jimmy Page talked about the classic rocker, saying: “‘Rock and Roll’ has just got that cheeky energy about it. 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.”

Bassist John Paul Jones chimed in, adding, “As a song, it was actually kind of punky; pre-punk. 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.” Watch the new “Rock and Roll” video below.
