Today (11/8/71) marks the anniversary of the release of Led Zeppelin IV in the US.  We celebrate by showcasing a cool mashup of Stairway to Heaven and some awesome covers of tracks on the record.  Van Halen, Heart, Jeff Buckley and even Robert Plant with Allison Krauss take their shot at covering these landmark tunes.
