BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Zeppelin share Polar Music Prize
Zeppelin and Russian conductor Valery Gergiev were named winners of the Polar Music Prize.
The academy said Led Zeppelin were "one of the great pioneers of rock".
Led Zeppelin split in 1980 following the death of drummer John Bonham, reuniting briefly for the Live Aid concert in 1985.
The surviving members - Jimmy Page, Robert Plant and John Paul Jones - continue to perform.
Kuddos to Zeppelin. Mostly Robert Plant continues to perform LIVE. Sure wish Page and Jones were as active (tour wise) as Plant IS.
