Perhaps the greatest Hard Rock band of all time, Led Zeppelin, have added yet another achievement in their glorious career. President Obama payed tribute to the British rockers by awarding them the Kennedy Center Honors, the nation’s highest award for “lifetime contributions to American culture through the performing arts.”

This year’s other recipients included comedian David Letterman, actor Dustin Hoffman, artist Natalia Makarova and Blues legend Buddy Guy.

During his speech, the POTUS touched on the band’s great, lasting legacy even after several decades since the original band played its last notes and joked about the band’s debaucherous past.
