Led Zeppelin II was a rock and roll album released October 22, 1969 (see 1969 in music) by Led Zeppelin. The album was released on Atlantic Records. On of the more popular albums by Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II was an early forerunner of heavy metal, and helped inspire a lot of the next generation of metal performers, including Blue Öyster Cult, Van Halen and Deep Purple.

Commercially, "Whole Lotta Love" was Led Zeppelin's biggest hit; it reached #4 on the Billboard Top 100 in October 1969, which was after the record company went against the group's wishes by releasing an edited, shorter version on a 45. "Living Loving Maid (She's Just a Woman)" peaked at #65.
