Happy Music Monday! Today, in 1937, the world was first exposed to that lovely book which forms a gateway into hardcore nerdery, The Hobbit. From this little manuscript was born Lord Of The Rings, Dungeons & Dragons, and possibly even Star Wars and Babylon 5. All of modern nerdcore owes this Tolkien fellow a debt... and guess what? So does music.
Yep, if you're a Led Zep fan, you've been listening to Hobbit music for years, even if you didn't notice. This isn't the only Zeppelin song about Tolkien's work, but it is the easiest to notice. Hear that Gollum shout out? Maybe Robert Plant and Vin Diesel have a monthly gaming night!
More to come, after the jump. Don't touch our precious.
