Heavy Metal pioneers Black Sabbath inspired this seven-minute track. Songwriter and frontman Max Cavalera explained on his record label's website: "Honestly, it's a thank you to Black Sabbath for being Black Sabbath. It's slow doom metal."
This track is a collaboration with French dub artist Fedaya Pacha. Cavalera said of working with him: "Fedaya makes dark, really heavy dub—completely different from commercial dub. He did the outro for 'Touching the Void,' and he played a lot of weird instruments. Those little things definitely make this song special when you listen to it."
"Whole Lotta Love" was Led Zeppelin's only US Top 10 hit, charting at #4. Many of their songs, including "Stairway To Heaven," were not released as singles, as it was considered bad form in England to make people pay for singles that were on albums.
