"Misty Mountain Hop" was at the time a stylistic throwback to the 60's British Invasion, even though the song was originally recorded just a few short years from that period. Based on a jaunty four note riff by Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, it features a signature scale-crushing drum beat from John Bonham, with Robert Plant's lyrics fixated on concern for members of the Woodstock generation who happen to be caught in a drug bust.
Compared to "Stairway" (and virtually every other cut on their historic IV album), "Hop" is merely a perfunctory excercise in rock formalism that doesn't break the mould, does its business with little fuss and then wraps up, and quickly became an undying radio staple.
This song is a part of C3X.
