Led Zeppelin’s Stairway To Heaven Successful By Accident

According to the New York Post (via Spinner), the song only got popular because it gave DJs a chance to go out for a smoke break. You may be thinking, “No! That can’t be!” Well, sorry to burst your bubble but you better believe us.
“Stairway to Heaven” became the #1 most played song on the radio despite the fact that it was never a single. As Spinner reports, “Led Zeppelin didn’t do singles.” The song was never even meant to hit the air waves, but because of its lengthy and popular soothing yet rocking guitar riffs, the public got a taste and demanded more after DJs took advantage of the track. I think that it would have become popular regardless, it's Stairway, it's unbelievable.
