Here’s a Transformers-themed band covering Led Zeppelin

Finally, a band that bridges the divide between Hasbro-produced cartoons and the drug-fueled classic rock of the 1970s. The Cybertronic Spree is a Transformers-themed tribute band that specializes in robust, soaring covers of cartoon and video game theme songs. Occasionally, though, they’ll toss in an unexpected banger that you won’t find on the Transformers: The Movie soundtrack. Like, say, Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song,” which you can watch the group tear through below.

While it appears they’re sometimes joined by a guitar-wielding Ghostbuster, the core band members consist of Arcee, Hot Rod, Soundwave, Bumblebee, Unicron, and, impressively, Quintesson (that’s a deep cut). And if you’d rather them stay in their lane rather than shred through in the classic rock of yesteryear, you’re likely to enjoy their take on Stan Bush’s “Dare.” Watch it below.
