Greta Van Fleet sound like they did weed exactly once, called the cops, and tried to record a Led Zeppelin album before they arrested themselves. The poor kids from Frankenmuth, Michigan don’t even realize they’re more of an algorithmic fever dream than an actual rock band. While they’re selling out shows all over the world, somewhere in a boardroom, a half-dozen people are figuring out just how, exactly, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant are supposed to fit into the SUV with the rest of the Greta Van Fleet boys on “Carpool Karaoke.”


I'd never heard of Greta Van Fleet so I gave a listen and that is straight-up Led Zeppelin. A highly amusing interview video followed in which the lead singer cited almost every possible influence except Led Zeppelin. I wish Greta Van Fleet to be a Kaufman-esque prank that got out of hand.
