2 Voodoo Child (Slight Return) - Jimi Hendrix

The live Version of red house in winter land is the best blues rock song ever period!

I'm surprised red house isn't an option

Hendrix is shown me so man amozing things

He can play better with his teeth than most people play with hands.✌🏻🤘🏻

Sorry, but Purple Haze is way more of a hard rock song than Voodoo Child. The bluesiest thing Hendrix ever did was definitely Red House. - Gg2000

6 Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin

Definitely blues, stolen outright from "You Need Love", written by Willie Dixon and recorded by Muddy Waters.

Just because some lyrics were stolen from a blues track, doesn't make it blues. - MontyPython

I wouldn't call it blues, more of a hard rock track, but it's a great song no doubt! - MontyPython

@visitor: ha, I also know that this song is a brutal rip off - one of their numerous rip offs. - Metal_Treasure

Great song but I thought Satisfaction would be number 1

Best song of led zeppelin,there is much feeling in it.

Probably the best blues rock song from the greatest blues rock band of all time - Bobby18


En mi punto de vista, es la mejor canción de rock blues de la historia, tiene tanto feeling, transmite tan bien las emociones, excelente letra y de la música ni hablar, podría ser el mejor solo de la historia también.

13 Crossroads - Cream UListen to Sample
14 Red House - Jimi Hendrix

This is way more bluesy than Voodoo Child and especially Purple Haze. It needs more votes. - Gg2000

Utterly captivating from the first note to the last. Oozes more passion in one song than some artists show over their entire career
