“Stairway to Heaven”
Despite its impossible-to-decipher lyrical meaning ("a bustle in your hedgerow"?) and it never being issued as a single, when you think "Bic-igniting stadium anthem," Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" immediately comes to mind. "I thought 'Stairway' crystallized the essence of the band," Jimmy Page told Rolling Stone in 1975. "It had everything there and showed the band at its best…as a band, as a unit." The song would come under fire during the early 1980s however, when it was (erroneously) accused of containing satanic messages…when played backward.
