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
Normal person: Do you even have any idea what you're talking about? You're an idiot

Led Zeppelin are overrated, just like The Doors.
Led Zeppelin are the true definition of overrated. For a much better band, that is definitely NOT overrated, please learn about Pink Floyd.

Supposedly the greatest rock band on earth but people need to stop and think about it some more. Just because a band has talent doesn't mean they put it together to sound good. Jimmy page's long drawn out solos take away the whole point of a song and turn them more into instrumentals. Robert Plant has the girliest voice in rock and dresses to match. John Bonham is way overrated and even though I hate Rush to Neil Peart is a way more talented drummer. John Paul Jones really does nothing for the band since you can never hear his bass and apparently they say he does extra sounds like synthesizers and crap but that only takes htting a button. They really never invented or barely innovated anything because the stones were doing it before them. Almost every Led Zeppelin song is slow and boring with Robert PLant crying his ass off and then calling it singing when it's not. They also have a problem with having enogh lyrics to fill out the 6-7 minute song they clog up a cd with. The lyrics may be the worst part of all, people say they have so much meaning but no one can actually prove where the meanings are. NOt everyone likes Led Zeppelin and no one should have to deal with all these die hard "Led Heads" and their pointless blabbering on how Led Zeppelin is so great when they really aren't.
Overrated band that really has no true substance

An extremely overrated band from the late 60's, 70's. Retards say that there would be no metal without Led Zeppelin, how could that be when Black Sabbath formed before Led Zeppelin's debut was released?
Iron Maiden slays all!!!!

An extremely overated band. Idiots say these fags influenced metal, BULLSHIT! The Gods of Metal are Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, and Judas Priest, not those classic soft pussy rock fags.
