    Default Led Zeppelin vs. The Rolling Stones

    Who really deserves to be called the best rock and roll band? Led Zeppelin or The Rolling Stones?

    I'd say there are many bands who could vie for that title. I'm not sure if I would narrow it automatically down to those two.

    Granted, they've both had moments that could be considered peaks of rock and roll history; but so have, for instance, Pink Floyd and the Who. You could make just as strong an argument to run those two off together.

    Or the Jimi Hendrix Experience vs. Santana, or The Velvet Underground vs. The Grateful Dead. And numerous newer, also great, bands.

    What we need is a greatest rock and roll band tournament, narrow it down to a final four, then a battle for the championship at the end.

    I like Zeppelin better then The Stones. But it is to hard to compare them.

    My uncle saw The Who in their prime and Zeppelin in their prime. Said there was no comparing them. The Who were the better live band, more energy.

    To me the greatest rock band is to hard to say, but judging by live albums I have heard and stories I have heard from friends' parents, my own family. It is a tie between four bands. MC5, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy.

    But greatest rock band? How do you judge that?

    To vague in my opinion to say one is the greatest, same with musicians. That is why ranking bands and saying so and so is the best ever is dumb IMO.

    I voted for Stones, because sound of Richards is more pleasant to me than Clapton But I think they are both great bands! It's very hard to compare them. How can you compare guitar and bass, for example?

    Interesting you mention Clapton. Cream and Zep would probably make a better comparison, musically.

    Yes that would be the better comparison.

    I wouldn't be able to pick though.

    I voted LZ because I hate the Stones but it really does all come down to just that, personal opinion. Both bands have their good and bad qualities and both bands influenced a lot of people.


    Whenever you get a VS thing going on, you will always get people voting based on their opinion and that doesn't make the 'winning' band better than the 'losing' band. It just shows that more people like one band over the other but that doesn't mean the band is better.

    I just like the way it generates discussion... I don't this sort of thing really determines anything at all beyond the fact these bands are of great interest to the people who discuss them.

    You can definitely say, in this one particular case, Led Zep received more support than the Stones, but beyond that... ?

    Always preferred the Stones. Love Zep, mind you, but if I hear "Stairway To Heaven"
    one more time I'll scream (in private, of course...lol). I can hear "Satisfaction" forever.

    I'm going to say Led Zeppelin.

    Their sound just appeals to me more.
