Immigrant Song is the opening track on English rock band Led Zeppelin's third album, Led Zeppelin III, written and released in 1970. The song is famous for its distinctive, wailing cry from vocalist Robert Plant (with a melody reminiscent of "Bali Ha'i") at the beginning of the song, and is built around a repeating, staccato Jimmy Page/John Paul Jones/John Bonham riff. The hiss at the beginning of the track is feedback from an echo unit. "Immigrant Song" was written during Led Zeppelin's tour of Iceland, Bath and Germany in mid-1970. Read more on Last.fm.
