    Another thread in the music forum (Desert Island Discs) got me thinking about this classic album. Do you refer to it as:
    Untitled
    IV
    Zoso
    Runes
    or ???
    My current choice is Untitled. I like the fact that they were so huge at that point that they could release an album with no name. Did the members of Zeppelin ever state a preference or official title?

    IV

    Where did ZOSO/ZOSU come from? I know on the record that there is a symbol that looks like a Z, but I didn't think it actually spelled out ZOSO, but I've heard that before.

    I've always called it "Led Zeppelin 4" as well. It fits in so well since their first album was titled "Led Zeppelin" and was followed by "Led Zeppelin 2" and "Led Zeppelin 3".

    I've also always called Metallica's 1991 album "The Black Album" though I believe the official title is simply "Metallica".

    Usually Zep 4 but sometimes Runes or Zoso (Page's symbol is the word Zoso/Zofo on the cover).

    I forget the explanations of each of their symbols now.

    I read the book called "Hammer of The Gods, the story of Led Zeppelin" back in 1993 and for the life of me I cannot remember what the symbols mean or why they were put on the album. I just call it Zep 4
