When the Levee Breaks When the Levee Breaks Cover Art

Best beat of all time. It's amazing opening up.

Beat classic rock band of time.

Fantastic song and great drumming

This song is outlandish. From the very first drumming you can figure out it's gonna be something of once in a lifetime! Plus, Robert's performance gave me shivers. So emotional!

I think this should be on 1. Whenever I listen to this song my attention directly goes to drum beats... It doesn't happen in any other song

This song is amazing! Led Zeppelin's best. It truly takes you to another place when you listen to it and you can imagine yourself walking through a scorching desert. The drumming in this song is some of the best I've ever heard, it makes the song and without it wouldn't even be half as good. Amazing songwriting and pure talent throughout.

It's so catchy that it's my favorite Led Zepplin song.

I love the drum beat on When the Levee Breaks, but this sounds like someone shooting a machine gun In the background. Awesome. Bonham's best song by far.

he puts so much power to it.

The drumming is really top notch

Great track

Whole Lotta Love Whole Lotta Love Cover Art
Rock and Roll Rock and Roll Cover Art

The song title defines the genre. Rock-steady pile-driving drums from Bonzo, a busy, ever-changing melange of sound from Jimmy (never plays it the same way twice) that bears listening to again and again in each version, Robert sounding like every heavy rock singer you ever wanted to sound like, John Paul effortlessly keeping up with whatever complexity Jimmy is laying down and enhancing.

The quintessential air-guitar song, "Rock and Roll" would get dead people on their feet. I defy anyone to listen to this without at least tapping their feet. I played the "Song Remains The Same" DVD version for my 83-year-old mother: she was rapt all the way through.

Classic, unsurpassed, unequalled, raw power and fire. I love it.

Amazing driving kick drum with excellent timing. The syncopation between bass guitar and drums is very special.

I love the drum solo I'm the beginning!

The strt is the best

Bonzo's Montreaux Bonzo's Montreaux Cover Art

This song is a whole DRUM SOLO people and is better than Moby Dick in my opinion. And don't forget about Out On The Tiles and Immigrant Song.

Why in bloody hell is this song so far down on the list? The whole song is a solo! It should at least be in the top 5 if not number 1

This whole song is a drum solo and it is 10th *facepalm*

Immigrant Song Immigrant Song Cover Art

Deserving contestant, at least when drum beats are concerned.

The Contenders

Fool in the Rain Fool in the Rain Cover Art

The drum beat leading up to the guitar solo is amazing

Bonham was the best in Rock ever, hands down!

The quintessential example of the "Bonham Shuffle"!

I still get chills 20 years later

In My Time of Dying In My Time of Dying Cover Art

The drumming by John Bonham is absolutely amazing in this song. Just take another listen to it if you hadn't noticed.

In my opinion one of the best by far, along with Achilles Last Stand, and No Quarter.

Bonzo rips up the middle section.

Moby Dick Moby Dick Cover Art

How can the best bass solo be in 6# place?!

Watch it live and you'll now why it shold be #1
