One of the most overrated bands of the 60s. Don't get me wrong, they're a very good band, but they're often given more credit than they're deserving of, mostly by their fucking idiotic fans/fanboys who don't have a clue what they're talking about

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
Led Zeppelin Fanboy: OMG LED ZEP IS DA BEST AND MOST INFLUENTIAL BAND EVER OMG THEY ROX SO MUCH
Normal person: Do you even have any idea what you're talking about? You're an idiot

The greatest rock band that ever existed who's first album was released in 1969. With Rober Plant on lead vocals, Jimmy Page on guitar, John Bonham on drugs, I mean drums, and John Paul Jones on the bass. Jimmy Page and John Bonham are the best guitarist and best drummer ever, respecitively. Led Zeppelin broke up in 1979 with the death of John Bonham. Every word and every note of every Led Zeppelin song is pure genius. Their songs rock harder everytime I listen to them.
Led Zeppelin wrote "The Song Remains the Same"

complete and utter gods of rock.
Best songs (in my opinion) are Black Dog and The Battle Of Evermore.

A rock band from the 1970s. Fanboys think that listening to Led Zeppelin makes them special by setting them apart from their peers, who mostly listen to mainstream rap and pop. However, in their day, Zeppelin were rather mainstream.
It is not a big deal that you listen to Led Zeppelin. Everyone knows who they are.

English group formed in late 1968. The singer was a woman, the drummer a Neanderthal, the bass player a polite public school type and the guitarist a diminuitive figure with a penchant for plagiarism. They made a very succesful career by copying Jeff Beck, Robert Johnson and The Beatles Helter Skelter and attract Homer Simpson persona types as fans.

The "ulitimate" and most influential band from the 60s to the 80s. I wouldnt say there the greatest band in the world, because that would mean im a music nut case. But I love Led Zeppelin with a passion, because theyre not like those gay bands in 2000
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.
Listen To Led Zeppelin classics such as
"stairway to heaven"
"dazed and confused"
"immigrant song"
"whole lotta love"
"ramble on"
"Black Dog"
"kashmir"
Listen to these solos too!!
Van Halen: "eruption"(this is number 2 after stairway to heaven in the "100 best solo's of all time"
Lynyrd Skynyrd: "Free Bird'
Jimi Hendrix(LISTEN TO HIM!!!!!!)
