And how about modern Techno Pop and dance music that evolved from Disco which evolved from Funk which evolved from Jazz Funk, and originated with Jazz?
Yes, it does all come from somewhere.
I really had no idea Zep was so hated until I read Danny Goldberg's book. He was hired by Zep to do their PR before he went off and became a record company mogul. By the time I became aware of Zep in school, they were already considered legends.
