Who remembers this Led Zeppelin cover by Newcity Rockers?



Soon the Internet buzz will die down from the death of the family dog, Brian Griffin, on the animated hit Family Guy.  We honor the animated Brian with a little animated video of our own from the Newcity Rockers Black Dog.

Some might think it sacrilege to remake the classic 1971 Led Zeppelin song, but Boston's Newcity Rockers put a flavored twist on the song that hit No. 80 on the singles chart in 1987. The video features some nice rotoscoping and is interesting eye candy, no matter what your stance is on the remaking of classic rock songs.   

While Black Dog contains no lyrics about a dog, legend has it the song was named after a stray black lab that wandered around the Headley Grange studio grounds where Led Zeppelin IV was being recorded.
