Led Zeppelin waited until 2007 to make their albums available on iTunes, so it's no surprise that the iconic rockers haven't jumped on-board with music streaming services yet.

However, according to The New York Times, soon you'll be able to add "Stairway to Heaven" to your playlists, because they are now in talks with Spotify, Rhapsody and Rdio to make their music available for streaming.

With more than 111 million albums sold, Led Zeppelin is one of the biggest-selling acts of all time, so if they decide to sign with a smaller service they could "tip the competitive scales." What do you think, SodaHeads? Do you want Led Zeppelin to stream their entire catalog or are you somewhat apathetic about it?

Led Zeppelin are in talks with various subscription music services for the exclusive right to stream the band's catalog, The New York Times reports.

    To any adult who believes that there are no teenagers anymore who listen to Led Zeppelin: you're wrong. :)

    Who DOESN'T want them to stream it?
    Wait... the answer to that question is none other than LED ZEPPELIN! lol
    I'd kill for it to be on Spotify.... but no.

    Do I need to say more ? u.u
  • questionsparks 2013/01/16 23:46:19
    I think that they will eventually.

    Don't care
    I would say these guys can do whatever they want. I have all of their stuff in many different formats. If they stream, I'll enjoy it. Their stuff never gets old. Haven't seen Jimmy in a few years, Plant without hair. And when did Tim Geithner join Zeppelin? :)
  • gary 2013/01/14 16:51:06
    zeppelin were a great band but ive already bought their albums on vinyl, tape and cd.
    why should i pay spotify, itunes or any other con artist? after all, zeppelin are millionaires so dont need my humble money anyway.
  • Zepland 2013/01/11 23:28:06
    Jimmy will know what's best for Led Zeppelin.
  • Yara 2013/01/11 20:45:09
    Yes !
  • dave.jameson.33 2013/01/10 18:24:45
    No. They should just put out a The Very Best Of compilation, and let the cyber pirates to do it for them.
  • Veinallinius 2013/01/10 17:28:34
    YES, Yes, Yes, Yes............
  • TikkiPurdy 2013/01/10 17:05:50
    That would be amazing!
  • Vieuphoria 2013/01/10 15:20:00
    Oh good lord yes. I have Spotify, i've had it since it's launch. It's a perfect way to combat illegal streaming, and cost a very small amount. I would love to be able to hear Zeppelin on the service.
  • Jack 2013/01/10 15:02:42
    Don't care
    I already own everything they've ever put out...so why pay yet more money to get it streaming. There should be a way that if we own it already, we should be able to get the new medium free or dirt cheap.
  • dave.ja... Jack 2013/01/11 00:24:59
    So how many minutes of streaming is one your dusty old 8-tracks worth to you, anyway? ;)

    This would be a Prince circa. late 1990's level smart music move.

    the fuze
    Although, I already have so much of their music, I guess it really doesn't matter.
  • Dweezle 2013/01/10 10:12:41
    they are one of my favorite groups that I cannot download using zune.
  • Jack Dweezle 2013/01/10 15:03:23
    Zune...they still make that?
  • Dweezle Jack 2013/01/10 18:09:31
    I guess so, My player is old, had to replace the battery once, but I still get unlimited downloads for 14.99 a month. (and I get Licenses to own 10 songs each month).

    Why not...I hope the Ink Spots, Spike Jones, and Jimmy Durante follow suit..good grief!
  • OzSurfer 2013/01/10 07:48:50
    Bring it on..
  • codenamev 2013/01/10 03:58:14
    If you don't get the Led out, you haven't lived.
  • OA 2013/01/10 02:43:44 (edited)
    The former generations of musicians are finally starting to realize the paradigm shift. The new generation doesn't want to buy plastic and vinyl. We want to see you live, hear you on the radio, and stream you on our phones & tablets.
  • codenamev OA 2013/01/10 04:00:33
    But I'll be damned before I give up vinyl!

    vinyl albums are awesome
  • OA codenamev 2013/01/11 00:36:16
    I'm not giving up my vinyl either, but I haven't bought a new vinyl album in over a decade. I have picked up some at thrift shops, etc. I enjoy the nostalgia, but someone born today may not even know what a record is when they are adults. It's no longer a good income model for artists. That's my point.
  • codenamev OA 2013/01/12 01:09:33
    No, I get what you're saying. But it's also part of the hipster ethos that vinyl is better because it's rarer, so that gets some customers, and then there are the vinyl collectors and the devotees (like myself) who believe that vinyl sounds better. It's not a big market, but it's significant.
  • kelsiei... codenamev 2013/01/22 22:53:16
    I like vinyl because it sounds better... not because it's 'hip' or 'rare' or whatever.
    I prefer vinyl for home listening, and mp3 for on the go.
  • codenamev kelsiei... 2013/01/23 01:05:53
    Me too. I have my iPod (argh) for the car, which is where I do most of my music listening. But when I'm at home and I'm in the mood to listen to something good, I whip out the good ol' vinyl.

    Although, while I respect the idea of the 180gm, I wish they would go back to standard. It doesn't seem to make a significant difference in quality, and it only gives about three-four songs a side, which is kind of a pain, but whatever.
  • Chrissi 2013/01/10 02:05:08
    Why not?
  • THB306 2013/01/10 02:00:08
    Robert Plant is too stingy with the rights to Led Zeppelin! It's quite ridiculous.

    I think that is the coolest thing ever - having our music cross generations. I try to keep an open mind and ear as well and have found some decent new bands too.
