Miley Cyrus loves getting the led out as much as the next pop star. The brazen songstress has tried her hand at Led Zeppelin's 1969 ballad 'Babe I'm Gonna Leave You', posting an unvarnished recording to Soundcloud and encouraging her legion of fans to "check dis shit out," on Twitter.

While it's impossible to truly rival Robert Plant's raw, shrieking vocals, she gives a laudable effort, particularly with the heavy guitar riffs and gravelly croons on the soaring hook: "Baby, oh baby, I'm gonna leave you. Oh, baby, you know I've really got to leave you. Oh I can hear it calling me. I said don't you hear it calling me the way it used to do?". As far as we're concerned, Plant — in addition to Jimmy Page on bass guitar — was born to play the fervent number, but it was actually written in the late 1950s by folk singer Anne Bredon.

It's no secret that Cyrus has a knack for re-imagining the classics as she's boldly taken on Bob Dylan, Fleetwood Mac, Dolly Parton, and most recently The Beatles, with help from her chums The Flaming Lips. While some will take issue with her latest ballsy cover, we look at it as yet another shining example of Cyrus' gumption and versatility. Listen, below:
