Which "Immigrant Song" are you?
I'll tell you this: when I watched the opening of the movie, between the killer titles and song I almost needed a seat belt to remain in place, I got so revved up.
Tip: Be your own DJ and play both versions at the same time — great fun.

I'm with Becs - I always see the viking kittens when I hear the Immigrant Song.

That was the fist 45rpm record I ever bought.

The Reznor version almost feels *too* polished. I like it, but listening to Led Zeppelin always makes me feel like everyone involved with the song had a lot of fun. Listening to the new version, it makes me feel as though scientists in lab coats tried to come up with the best re-imagining of the song possible, resulting in something technically excellent but emotionally void.
But I'm a huge Zep fan, so blah blah bias blah.

I like both artists. I grew up listening to zep on the local classic rock radio channel. I got into NIN in the early to mid 90s. I have to say that the zep version will always be better. If the NIN version did not have Karen O singing the NIN version may have been a pretty good match for the zep original!

The one with the kittens wearing the Viking helmets...

I'm more of a this one:
But if we are talking about pure music, as someone who is a fan of early NIN, and never much of a fan of led zep, the led zep version by far.
