It's not just the guitar shop in "Wayne's World" that operates a strict "no Stairway" policy. Led Zeppelin's own singer, and the song's lyricist, would rather never hear the eight-minute epic again either. Back in 1988, Robert Plant told the "LA Times:" "I'd break out in hives if I had to sing 'Stairway' in every show. I wrote those lyrics and found that song to be of some importance and consequence in 1971, but 17 years later, I don't know. It's just not for me...no more of 'Stairway to Heaven' for me.'' Fortunately for fans, grumpy Percy relented and performed the classic at their O2 reunion show, in 2007.
