What do you think about Led Zeppelin? Was Led Zeppelin the one who create metal in some way? Was Led Zeppelin the one who made the best solo in all history(Stairway to heaven)?
Please Led me know what you think

yes,but many other bands have come along. But all of these bands followed in the footfalls of the great Led Zeppelin, but none can fill in their steps.

Really? AC/DC, fronted with great Bon Scott didn-t followed any Zep!! DC beat Zep in live performances.
No talent? Just three cords? C-omon! DC didn-t took so much from others artists, like Zep did.
It is much more easy to be geniouse, if you took so many from others...

Mr. Rocko. Read some rock history. AC/DC took inspiration from the greatest Rock band of all time- Led Zeppelin- and covered some of their songs such as YOU SHOOK ME.

@anyonomus:

Led Zeppelin evolved from the Who? You kidding me? Led Zep are the new Yardbirds though Jimmy Page and Keith Moon (who suggested the band name) were good friends.

Pink Floyd were much better. They had a better range of styles. Led Zeppelin were all: HEY LISTEN TO ME WHINE AND LISTEN TO ME SHRED MY GUITAR.

Just love how VH1 with their rather foolhardy, non-subjective and biased lists about everything, try to suggest Black Sabbath started hard rock. It WAS Led Zeppelin and they have no peers in that regard or otherwise.

Pink Floyd didn't have a range of styles, led zeppelin is the best rock band hands down. they're riffs, lyrics, everything was perfect except their live performance. =(

Jimmy page never was as much as a "shred gutarist" he was more of a experimental, emotional, "bluesy" guitarist and robert plant was one of the greatest singers ever and did not "whine"

are you stupid?

listen fool, thats a opinion of Led Zeppelin's quality of music. Pink Floyd was monumental but can not be placed in the category of Led Zeppelin. Zeppelin created new techniques and styles that are the basis of modern day songs. Whine and shred on my guitar? every metal band does this in today's modern world due to Led Zeppelin. Led Zeppelin created a music industry that no longer promoted singles from band and began to promote albums due to Zeppelin. Most requested song of all time? Stairway to Heaven. Look at the facts man, Led Zeppelin created a new type of music that incorporated celtic themes, blues, and jazz....The first to do all this and still become the greatest band of all time. Do some research before you say childish things like that.

Led Zeppelin is a truly unbelievable band. I've listened to the discography of all the "greats" (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, The Who, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, etc) but without a doubt, I place Zeppelin's albums (especially their first six) at the top. Never have I been so thoroughly impressed by a band. Composed of four superbly talented members, all with a strong musical identity and a penchant for artistic exploration, Zeppelin managed to touch upon a myriad of genres and styles while sculpting some of the most powerful, dynamic, and subtly textured songs imaginable. They were ever evolving, never stagnant and rather than dispense catchy choruses to top the charts, the band elected to only release music that they themselves were proud of. As such, Zeppelin is definitely the best band I ever had the privilege of listening to.
