"Ozone Baby" is a song by English rock group Led Zeppelin. They recorded it in November 1978 at Polar Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, during the sessions for the band's final studio album In Through the Out Door. However, it was not released until the album of studio outtakes in 1982 titled Coda.
"Ozone Baby" is a straightforward, up-tempo rock song, featuring some harmonised vocal effects from Robert Plant. Few Zeppelin studio songs included harmonised vocal effects, but it had been increasingly utilised by Plant in live performances from 1977 onwards. Despite this, "Ozone Baby" itself was never performed live at Led Zeppelin concerts.
In a contemporary review of Coda, Kurt Loder of Rolling Stone described "Ozone Baby", along with "Darlene" and "Wearing and Tearing", are "about as wonderful as hard rock & roll gets." Loder also described "Ozone Baby" as "bone-rattling".
