The Top Ten

1 When the Levee Breaks

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!

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. - Pony

3 Good Times Bad Times

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

Playing drum led zepplin pit is rocking end rool!

4 Stairway to Heaven
5 Black Dog
6 Whole Lotta Love
7 Achilles Last Stand

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 - Toucan

Absloutely epic drums here by bonham.. For a truly epci song.. - vasanth_kp1

8 Rock and Roll

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

9 Bonzo's Montreaux

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* - Norrisofchuck

10 Immigrant Song

Deserving contestant, at least when drum beats are concerned.

The Newcomers

? All of My Love

The Contenders

11 Fool in the Rain

The drum beat leading up to the guitar solo is amazing

The quintessential example of the "Bonham Shuffle"!

Bonham was the best in Rock ever, hands down!

I still get chills 20 years later

12 Moby Dick

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

13 In My Time of Dying

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.

14 D'yer Mak'er
15 Since I've Been Loving You

I love the drum beats and the guitar! My favouritest song :P

16 Ramble On
17 The Ocean

Drums and Guitar Riff are just insane!

18 Houses of the Holy

I play the drums and its the beat I'm working on!

19 Four Sticks
20 Boogie with Stu

Bonzo's heavy aggressive drumming accompanied by the hand clapping is heard on this boogie woogie acoustic song.
