Death Penalty Song of the Day, from Led Zeppers

As a longtime music maven (former editor at Crawdaddy etc.) and author of a new e-book probing the death penalty in the USA (Dead Reckoning), I thought it would be apt for me to post a video here every day with a song illustrating or commenting on executions in America. This concludes the first week of a daily pick, featuring so far J. Cash, Metallica, Springsteen, The Band, Billie Holiday, and more.  Today?  Led Zep did it first and then Page and Plant did it on tour not long ago: "The Gallows Pole."
