Best Songs From Led Zeppelin IV

I found it extremely difficult to list which songs were the best seeing as this is arguably the greatest rock album of all time. The top two were probably the hardest to rank, but in the end the greatest song of all time topped the list, spoiler. But, any list of Led Zeppelin tracks is difficult because there the G.O.A.T of hard rock. So please comment on which you think is the best.

The Top Ten

1 Stairway to Heaven

Obviously! However, "When the Levee Breaks'' is right behind for me.

My favorite song from four and one of my favorite songs of all time!
Here is my list of favorite songs from four:
1. Stairway to heaven
2. Black Dog
3. Rock and roll
4. Misty mountain top
5. Going To California
6. When the levee breaks

Best Led Zeppelin song, right up there with "Kashmir'', "Whole Lotta Love'', "Immigrant Song'', "When the Levee Breaks'', "The Rain Song'', ''No Quarter'' and "Achilles Last Stand.''

2 When the Levee Breaks

Better than stairway to heaven

In my opinion, this is the best introduction to a rock song ever - don't think I've ever heard a drum kit sound that good - and it's backed up with some incredible harmonica playing from Robert Plant and a great riff from Jimmy Page. An absolute masterpiece. - Bobby18

I say this with nothing but pure understatement ; This is the greatest song in Rock and Roll History

Their best after Kashmir. It hit me like a ton of bricks, mostly the drum intro and Plant's emotion singing.

5 The Battle of Evermore

The most unknown song from this album. Its very amazing but every song from this album in my opinion is a 10/10 ranking

I think this deserves the #1 place, it's just too underrated.

1)Stairway to Heaven
2)Black Dog
3)Rock and Roll
4)Battle of Evermore
5)When the Levee Breaks
6)Misty Mountain Hop
7)Going to California
8)Four Sticks

Brought back the acoustic that I loved so much from Zep 3. - marmalade_skies

Deserves to be higher than 7. I'd put it at 3 or 4, although the whole album is fantastic. - Metarock
