7 ) “D’yer Mak’er” (1973)

“D’yer Mak’er” is one of the most controversial Led Zeppelin songs among fans and critics of the group. Many consider it one of the worst of the band’s familiar tracks. The title is a play on the pronunciation of the word “Jamaica” with an English accent. Musically, the song uses elements of Jamaican reggae and dub. The group’s bass player John Paul Jones publicly expressed his dislike of the song and said it began as a studio joke that the group didn’t think through. Vocalist Robert Plant encouraged the release of “D’yer Mak’er” as a single from the album “Houses of the Holy.” It reached #20 on the U.S. pop chart.
