Top Ten Best Songwriting Partnerships In Rock and Metal


The Top Ten

1 John Lennon/Paul McCartney

The awesome partnership of everyone's favourite 60's rock band. I feel sorry for George Harrison though. - IronSabbathPriest

2 Mick Jagger/Keith Richards

Both Still going strong today. - IronSabbathPriest

3 Angus Young/Malcolm Young

I fear it might only be Angus now... - IronSabbathPriest

4 Jimmy Page/Robert Plant

Wrote a lot of Zeppelin's songs together. - IronSabbathPriest

5 Jeff Hanneman/Kerry King

Although they occasionally wrote separately, they both wrote the awesome Raining Blood! - IronSabbathPriest

6 Don Henley/Glenn Frey
7 Hansi KÜRSCH / André Olbrich

They've been writing together for 30 years and they wrote great songs. They are perfectionists.
Blind Guardian rules.
André focuses on music and Hansi on lyrics.
André comes up with some general idea (melody, riff), other members contribute and then Hansi arranges everything.
Hansi wrote both music and lyrics only for their first 2-3 albums. - Metal_Treasure

8 Dio/Ritchie Blackmore
9 James Hatfield/Lars Ulrich
10 Jim Morrison/Robbie Kreiger

Because Jim was such a charismatic, flamboyant, person, the other members of The Doors tend to get ignored. Such a shame. - PetSounds

Writing credits usually just listed as "The Doors".

The Contenders

11 Holland/Dozier/Holland

Motown's greatest songwriting team

12 Carole King/Gerry Goffin
13 Amy Lee/Ben Moody

They are fantastic songwriters. Love you Evanescence - 05yusuf09

14 Chester Bennington/Mike Shinoda
15 Adrian Smith/Bruce Dickinson
