Wanna Have Led Zeppelin’s ‘Black Dog’ Ruined Forever? Watch This NBA Promo


This is apparently the “Special Open to the 2011 NBA Playoffs” for ABC/ESPN broadcasts. It features former (current?) Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger singing the first song from Led Zeppelin IV, “Black Dog”  with Jason Bonham’s Led Zeppelin Experience as the backing group and believe you me, it is a bloody awful.

Shame on Jason Bonham. With this atrocity, he has committed a heinous crime against all that is great about Led Zeppelin and disgraced his father’s good name. In essence, he took the musical equivalent of a big, steaming dump all over his father’s legacy and legend with this abomination. I don’t care how good-looking Pussycat Doll Lady might be: this ain’t right, man. Nope. Not right at all. I think Robert, John and Jimmy should get together and send Jason a crate of vodka and let nature take its course.
