First off, they weren't too terribly original, at least half of their riffs, chord progressions, and lyrics were lifted from old blues songs.
Second off, they made have been great at their instruments, but there are better, these idiotic fanboys make it seem like they're the best at their instruments. First off, Hendrix, Clapton and Gilmour are better guitarists than Page, and I could name at least 50 people who were better lyricists. Let's face it, Page wrote AVERAGE lyrics, it wasn't his thing..they're not bad, they're just not great, and a lot of space is filled by BABAYBABBAYBABYBABYBABYBABABY etc. Now, onto bass, John Entwistle was a much more talented bassist than JPJ, and Paul Mccartney, while he may not have been better is a more more creative and innovative bass player. Now onto drumming, while Bonham is a great drummer, I'd have to say Keith Moon is much better. And as for singing, I'd take Roger Daltrey's rock n roll voice to Plant's girly whining/wailing any day.
I don't really have a problem so much with Zeppelin, but I have a problem with their idiotic fans who claim they're the best thing since sliced bread. They're a GOOD band, and nothing more..they've got some good music, I'm not trying to argue that they don't but they're just not the most creative, or overall best band. They're not near the most influential either, so don't pull that bullshit either. The Beatles were much more influential and important to popular music than Zeppelin ever could dream of being, and Lennon/McCartney and Harrison were MUCH better songwriters than Page, not to mention better vocalists than Plant.
Not only that, but they're a gateway band, for teenagers to listen to, in order to be cool or different. And trust me, it doesn't work
So in summary, Led Zeppelin is a good band, but they're just overrated by their idiotic fanboys who don't know what the fuck they're talking about
Normal person: Do you even have any idea what you're talking about? You're an idiot
Simple Plan?!Blink 182?! DASH BOARD CONFESSIONALS?! WHAT KIND OF ATTACK AGAINST RAP IS THAT?!.There very talented and creative in writing songs to writing guitar tabs. Along with the one of the greatest rock bands, i cant write them all down. There are to friggin many. Im just going to mention "60s,70s, and 80s rock. I Listened to led zeppelin when i was 12,When my brother brought over old 60s,70s albums and 80's cassete tapes.
He told me to take my time listening to them. Its sad that Rock is dead, because of rap. We need more innovative rock bands like zeppelin,van halen, and so much more.
"nirvana" also is great. There Lyrics are great, and they dominated rap for a few years.
