15 Awesome Facts You Didn’t Know About Led Zeppelin

10 THE NOBS

Here is a humorous one. Countess Frau Eva von Zeppelin, the granddaughter of the founder of the Zeppelin Airship company, believed that the band was disrespecting her family’s history by using the Zeppelin name. She reportedly even referred to the group as “shrieking monkeys.” Things got so tense, in fact, that the band changed its name during a tour of Copenhagen in 1970 to avoid legal problems. After some back-and-forth regarding multiple ideas, the name “The Nobs” was agreed upon. It is probably safe to assume that no band that ever uses that name will be better.
