November 8 - Led Zeppelin IV is released

On this day, 40 years ago, one of the most iconic albums in music history was released. "Led Zeppelin IV" was a huge commercial and critical success as it sold 23 million copies in the United States, and over 37 million worldwide. The album featured hit singles "Black Dog", "Rock n Roll", and of course, "Stairway to Heaven".

Stairway is arguably Zeppelin's most iconic and most commercial song. The track was ranked #3 on VH1's "100 Greatest Rock Songs", and Jimmy Page's solo was ranked the #1 solo of all time by Guitar World magazine.

In 2007, The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ranked Led Zeppelin IV as the 4th greatest album of all time.
