Led Zeppelin Sues India and Pakistan

A&P Press, Ron Hunt

The remaining members of the rock group Led Zeppelin have sued the governments of both India and Pakistan for “spoiling the name Kashmir”. The suit alleges that the constant warlike climate over the disputed territory called Kashmir sullies the intent of the song Kashmir. At a press conference to announce the lawsuit singer Robert Plant said in part, “..it’s about the idea of life being an adventure and being a series of illuminated moments…not about war and being uncool. They’ve (India & Pakistan) have ruined a beautiful idea and a beautiful song.”  In a rare show of unity the governments of India and Pakistan have denounced Led Zeppelin, with the government of India releasing an angry statement saying the band was “overrated” and sang about “hobbits and wizards…and knew nothing of the land Kashmir”

    Oops, stuck this in the wrong date…

    Fuck Egypt,if I were a news correspondent, I’d be following the ‘Tim’s dog’s name story’ for the past month, way more important for world stability and peace.

    We’ve had ‘Shittin Vacuum’, ‘Lucy’, ‘Barkus’, ‘Roman god of shut the fuck up’, ‘Stalin’, ‘Pickles’, ‘Rickles’ and of course, ‘Travis Pickles’. Out of respect, I’d go for Mubarak, it’s fate…

    Lol

    Led Zep do NOT own Kashmir

    They should be grateful they dont have to pay royalties for using the name in the title of their weird music

    Who cares about being cool , you stupid stoner hippies.

    Kashmir is South Asian, not some plaything for old hippies to use !
