Can't believe anyone chose rhapsody, it's a good song but come on there's no comparison

Tough one I like them equally. But if it was black dog that would be my choice or Kashmir

If you're talking about Taurus-spirit, while they have the same gloomy undertone, they sound nothing alike.

I like both bands. With that said, jimmy page and Robert plant stole many of their songs including stairway to heaven, so I chose Queen. Funny thing about jimmy and Robert when questioned about this they both point the finger at the other saying he did it. That to me shows guilt.

I love QUEEN, but ZEPPELIN is a band you discuss on an album level. I really miss that.

Even if I'm sick of any of these songs, I still sing along involuntarily.

Great, great question! I went with Led Zeppelin because they are indescribable.
However, I have more Queen on my IPod.

Queen is legitimately my favorite band ever! And even though Freddie Mercury died before I was born, he is my idol. RIP best singer ever! And Brian May rocks! If I could play guitar he'd be my hero.

It's true that both songs are overplayed. Given a choice however, I'd listen to them 1000 times for every time I'd have to hear mindless pop/dance/rap music. Rock and roll is timeless and so are both of those bands.

So what isn't an overrated song in your opinion?

Stairway is up there with Freebird, Sweet Home Alabama and anything Journey has ever produced as the most overrated songs in the history of ever.

I would add "Free Bird" and "Sweet Home Alabama" to that list. All those songs induce nausea in me...

Both of them have been overplayed to the point that I can't stand to hear them any more. So has dream on.

It's a scientific fact that rock and roll peaked in 1979.

Wanye's World is responsible for this result. Stairway is clearly superior

The only song that a can think of that would beat bohemian rhapsody is no woman no cry.

I think Kashmir vs Stairway would've made a better poll. Both awesome Zeppelin songs

Stairway hands down but Kashmir is the better led zeppelin song.

that doesn't really make sense... ? all I meant was that the comment looks like a comment but it's actually from the lyrics of bohemian rhapsody.
