Kids Play Led Zeppelin on Xylophone (And It’s Awesome) [VIDEO]
This is by far the coolest thing I've seen this week.
Behold the 2014-15 Louisville Leopard Percussionists rehearsing a three-song Led Zeppelin medley featuring "Kashmir," "The Ocean," and "Immigrant Song":
Those kids are incredible! Check out the portion of Kashmir around the 2:10 mark. And Zeppelin songs aren't always the easier to play live; heck, the band itself rarely if ever played portions of its later catalog live in concert.

The Louisville Leopard Percussionists began in 1993. They are a performing ensemble of approximately 55 student musicians, ages 7-12, living in and around Louisville, Kentucky. Each student learns and acquires proficiency on several instruments, such as marimbas, xylophone, vibraphone, drum set, timbales, congas, bongos and piano.
