Although this solo-career retrospective ignores Robert Plant's fine first album (not to mention 1983's incandescent "In the Mood"), Sixty Six makes a convincing case that Plant's artistry didn't end with Led Zeppelin. Besides unveiling four pre-Zep rarities — including 1967 covers of "Hey Joe" and "For What It's Worth" — the set finds Plant's expressive voice in fine form on folk-rock hymns such as "Darkness, Darkness" or the "Kashmir" update "Calling to You." If only Plant could have gotten over his disdain for his early-Eighties work, Sixty Six would have been definitive.

MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
