It's a riff you've likely heard hundreds of times. And it might not even belong to the band most associated with it.
Led Zeppelin are in court (again) for allegedly plagiarizing their best-known work, "Stairway to Heaven," from a little-known band called Spirit.

When Lorde won two awards (song of the year and best pop solo performance) at the 2014 Grammys, she didn't just become the third-youngest winner in the ceremony's history. Barely a year into her career, the 17-year-old Kiwi also surpassed dozens of industry legends in the great list of Grammy winners in the sky.
Whether they've only won one Grammy, or are still waiting for their first golden gramophone entirely, here are some of the musical superstars who have taken home fewer Grammys than Lorde. (A note: We're only counting competition Grammys. Lifetime achievement awards don't count, nor do inductions into the Grammy Hall of Fame.)

Few things in the world are more majestic than Led Zeppelin's discography. The Grand Canyon is one of them, but after that, it's a short list.
And now that majesty is available in its entirety on Spotify, after a protracted rights battle. (Which we like to assume was a literal battle, one that Jimmy Page won with a battle-axe.) The albums trickled out one by one last week, but finally, everything's available.

Playing together for the first time since 1988, Led Zeppelin rocked a capacity 10,000 crowd at London's 02 arena Monday night – a crowd that included celebs like Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney.
The rock legends played a 16-song set that included staples like "Stairway to Heaven" and "Kashmir," and they closed the show with the iconic barnstormer "Rock and Roll."
In the audience? A few rock legends themselves: McCartney, Jagger and his girlfriend L'Wren Scott, Priscilla and Lisa Marie Presley, with her daughter Riley Keough and boyfriend Ryan Cabrera. Also there: Moss, Campbell, Pink, Juliette Lewis and Jagger's former bandmate Bill Wyman.
