    Voice already cracking. Hey kid, just because you can sing that high doesn't mean you should 99% of the time and make your melodies that high. Think about being able to sing your songs down the road. Keep this up, and you won't.

    Their SNL performance was certainly better than mine and most likely better than the detractors in this comment section. They're making money and I'm sure as hell not! Cheers! (That cat does look somewhat like Frodo however...)

Sorry, just can't get it....good lads I am sure.... when you aspire to a sound- I cringe in saying Zeppelin, you set yourself up,,, Comparisons are cool, and flattering, until, you actually plug in.

    wow, this performance is horrible... He has no control over his voice like i've heard him have in all the promos and the instrument play is sloppy. that's why this performance is horrible.. they should at least pretend that the performance matters since SNL tends to be a good advertising platform, instead this guy ~Sings like he is at a birthday party.

    What's wrong with all you people who disliked this? This is the best pure blues/rock sound I've heard in a looooong time. Probably the best rock sound I've heard since the first Arctic Monkey's record.

    Walmart Led Zeppelin. Also the guitarist is moving around like he's playing an intense solo, when he is just playing barre chords.

  • Ronnie Childs

    I'm a 67-year-old redneck and I thought this was pretty good. It seems to me to be just what rock music needs right now--a bunch of young dudes actually playing their instruments and playing the hell out of them, and playing them loud, original tunes (I guess), long hair, screaming and jumping around...What's not to like?

    This is fucking awful. If these guys tried this poser shit when I was growing up they'd be mocked for the copycat act they are. Drummer wearing gloves?... check. Guitarist xeroxing Jimmy Pages exact stage movements and quoting the first few notes of the Stairway to Heaven solo? .....check. Singer not able to hod the pitch on the high notes while directly quoting "The Rover" by Zeppelin? check.

    People complaining and yet This is America wins song of the year 2019. The state of music now and for years has been dreadful. We live in a saturated world of pop/hip-hop and GOD AWFUL rap.

  • Goosecore

    The worst parts about this was the shaky vocals, not the greatest of stage presence, the way the guitarist messed up a little before the last solo thingy and their segway into the last few bars which sounded a little clumsy. But really, the performance wasnt anywhere near as bad as people said it was. And at least this song wasnt badly performed. I just watch a video where the guitarist and drummer got a lot of criticism and what he pointed out isnt in reality more than what I just previously commented on, very minor parts of the entire song. People must be going on the anti-GVF train again because they dislike the band as there really arent any big issues with this performance.

    Haters be damned. What the singer of this band does at 3:09 alone is enough proof for me. That is a high D people. Most of the idiotic uniformed masses won't know what that means... but for the male voice to hit that note with that kind of power takes either 20 or more years of training or incredible raw talent. This kid is what? 21 years old? Fuck the haters. Greta Van Fleet rocks.
