This vintage tee is dedicated to Led Zeppelin and their 1970 single "Immigrant Song". It's seen a lot of loving since the 1990s, giving that perfectly worn in look and feel for years to come. Features gnarly graphics, amazing one hundred percent cotton, and double sided print. The viking metal imagery is in reference to phrases from "Immigrant Song" such as "The hammer of the gods" and "We are your overlords".
The famous track is also the inspiration behind the title of Led Zeppelin's unauthorized biography Hammer of the Gods, by Stephen Davis in 1985. The publication faced a lot of criticism and even members of the band spoke very ill of it. Robert Plant said Davis's information was way inaccurate and that he got all his information from a man who had a heroin problem and happened to be associated with Led Zeppelin. Jimmy Page says he threw the book out a window and into a river outside his house.
Despite the humorous controversy with the book, the hit single "Immigrant Song" was very well received upon its release in 1970. Most notably, its lyrics inspired the iconic imagery associated with heavy metal- viking figures embarking on wild adventures. These themes and aesthetics have since been adopted by other legendary bands like Manowar, Iron Maiden, and Saxon. "Immigrant Song" has also gone on to appear in numerous forms of media including movies like School of Rock, Thor: Ragnorak, and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Led Zeppelin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995, and their museum biography describes them as being as influential in the 70s as the Beatles were during the 60s. The band's legacy continues to thrive through the unwavering loyalty of their fans, their musical masterpieces, and classic memorabilia such as this band tee.
