I thought about charting the whole Led Zeppelin´s discography to see howpopular is their good old school rock nowadays. Below we can see how the classic hard rock band founded by Robert Plant (vocals), Jimmy Page (guitar), John Paul Jones (bass) and John Bonham (drums) is performing in the Spotify streaming service:

Some comments on this rock classic:
Which are Led Zeppelin´s most popular records?
Among all of Led Zeppelin´s discography the four selftitled records are the most popular ones. And actually, the “untitled” one, famously known as Led Zeppelin IV (1971) is their most streamed album today. As expected, Stairway to heaven is their most popular song (see the top 10 track list below). But their fourth album also has some other real classics, like Black dog, Rock n roll and Misty mountain top.
We have to take into account that Immigrant song, from ther Led Zeppelin III (1970) album is the second most streamed song from Page, Plant, Bonzo and Jones.Their second LP (Led Zeppelin II, 1969) has the excellent Whole lotta love, which hold a very notable third place in this streaming chart. Led Zeppelin´s top tracks in streaming are listed right below:

Least popular albums from Led Zeppelin
There are low points in every discography. While I was doing this chart I expected Physical Graffitti (1975) and Houses of the Holy (1973) to perform better. These are heavy weight albums in rock history: the first of them includes tracks such as In my time of dying and the hard rock anthem Kashmir. The second forementioned album contains many notable tunes, such as The song remains the same, The rain song, No quarter and perhaps their popiest track, D’yer Mak’er.
I included 1982´s CODA in this chart, even though is not a proper studio album. But in fact it is the last record that Led Zeppelin put out after the tragic death of their amazing drummer John Bonham. This album contains the drum solo entitled Bonzo´s Montreux. One surprice in this infographic was that the album Presence (1976), performed in the last place. I now is not usually considered Led Zeppelin´s best work, but it certainly deserves more streams!
