Going Over Like a Lead Balloon

OK, I have to say it: I am getting sick and tired of Led Zeppelin. Don't get me wrong; I have nothing against Zeppelin. I'm not a huge fan, by any stretch, but, hey, I'll happily sing along with "Stairway to Heaven" when it comes on the radio, just like every other red-blooded rock fan. At some point, though, enough is enough. It seems like every single time I've gotten into the car in the last couple of weeks, no matter which of the various classic rock stations I listen to (well, I like classic rock!), they're playing Zep. Every damned time. Usually it's "Ramble On." I am getting so very, very sick of that song, not least of all because it's now taken up residence in my head, so that I can listen to it even when the radio's off, lucky me. What is it with that song? Is it suddenly considered "topical" now because of the Tolkien references? I could get behind that, actually, were it not for the fact that the Tolkien references in that song are, quite frankly, stupid. Aaargh!

Listen, DJ-type people, can we quit it with the Zep and play some Rush or something, already? I'm beggin' you here. Don't make me take a machete to my radio. Please?
