I only like a few Clash songs, and this new wave of crappy punk music has left a bad taste ion my mouth regarding the genre. Still, it'd be Zeppelin taking the cake, I'm not letting pieces of crap like Good Charlotte and Not By Choice ruin other bands' chances.


Aren't you the guy with Meat Puppets lyrics in your signature?

First off, I don't consider The Clash a classic rock band. They are Punk, though they strayed away from that with some reggae songs and rap (yes, The Magnificent Seven is a rap song). Needless to say I have several of their albums. They still didn't get my vote. Not because i don't like them but rather who their competition is.

Led Zeppelin is the defintion of Rock and Roll in my eyes (and ears).
I can go on and on about them. They are beyond words.

I also named my keeper team, "Hammer of the Gods", a quote from The Immigrant Song.

Zep To The Finals!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-D ;-D ;-D ;-D

I voted for the Clash thinking it would be funny, then I saw three other people did. I hope they were not serious.

I lost all respect for Zep when they refused to pay Willie Dixon even though they were caught stealing his songs. He died in a housing project while they became incredibly rich.

Also, Zep's music is a little too high-pitched and screechy and irritating. They're like cream if Eric Clapton were singing after sucking helium.

I was forced to vote Clash :-[

I don't like Zepplin at all. Everytime I hear them on the radio I change the channel.














Where's my Barry Mannilow CD :-?

Page was overrated??? MOOKIE, say it ain't so

Zeppelin is irritating??? AA, say it ain't so

I don't like Zeppelin at all? WKELLY

How is that possible? That's worse then someone saying bb is boring.

LED for your head!!!!!!

Ok, i love Zep. Use to listen to a cd a day. I have cutback these days, as grunge has taken hold. Once had a work buddy who played Zep cds the whole 8 hrs. Was great.

Imo, Plant has the best rock voice ever. He's freaking amazing. Page before he was in Zep, was the man who was hired out to play guitar in studios and such. Bonham was imo, the best drummer ever (tie Keith Moon). Alot of people have listened to Zep, as they are the 3rd biggest selling artist ever (any type of music). Their tours in the 70's, smashed records at that time. They were album based, never issued a single. One of the few groups where the whole cd is good, not just a few songs. Sorry, i just can't imagine how anyone cannot love that blues sound, or the energetic, riveting people, that were Zep. Zep fans pm me. Stay united lol.

AA what songs did they steal, and how?

Squeeze me baby, till the juice runs down my leg.
The way you squeeze my lemon, i'm gonna fall right out of bed.

Hootie - this is what I was referring to, from a short found-on-the-internet synopsis:

In 1985, Willie Dixon sued Led Zeppelin, claiming that "Whole Lotta Love" was largely plagiarized from Dixon's 1962 song "You Need Love."[1] At that time, a lawyer for the Led Zeppelin's record company, Atlantic Records, offered only the weak defense, "It's strange that someone would wait all that time [to file a suit]."[2] The case was settled out of court and recent Led Zeppelin releases have given songwriting credit for "Whole Lotta Love" to Willie Dixon along with all four members of Led Zeppelin. Muddy Waters recorded the first version of "You Need Love" in 1962 as a single for Chess Records, but the version of this song that most directly influenced Led Zeppelin was by the Small Faces. Robert Plant sounds very much like Steve Marriot during the vocal break ("Way down inside, woman, you need... lo-o-ove"). (Incidentally, the Small Faces interpretation of this song, retitled "You Need Loving," was credited to "Lane/Marriot"—Led Zeppelin weren't the only ones who were reluctant to give proper songwriting credit) Robert Plant also briefly quotes Howlin' Wolf at the end of "Whole Lotta Love" with the line "Shake for me girl/I wanna be your back door man." Actually, Plant was once again quoting Willie Dixon, as both of the songs "Shake for Me" and "Back Door Man," though popularized by Howlin' Wolf, were written by Dixon.


Here's the lyrics to "You Need Love" by Willie Dixon. See if it sounds familiar:


You've got yearnin' and I got burnin'
Baby you look so sweet and cunning
Baby way down inside, woman you need love
Woman you need love, you've got to have some love
I'm gonna give you some love, I know you need love
You just gotta have love, you make me feel so good
You make me feel all right, you're so nice, you're so nice
You're frettin', and I'm petting
A lot of good things you ain't getting
Baby, way down inside, you need love
You need to be hugged and squeezed real tight,
by the light of the moon on some summer night
You need love and kissing too,
all these things are good for you
I ain't foolin' you need schoolin'
Baby you know you need coolin'
Baby, way down inside, woman you need love
