Best Led Zeppelin SongsDeathToMayo
The Top Ten
this song makes you literally feel like you're in heaven
Its lyrics has something, really strange and strong influence on me... something powerful! people who have died without listening this song, didn't really knew what is dream...
This is more than a song, is a masterpiece. With those different sections, which increase in tempo and volume as the song progresses it is definitively "chilling". Besides, it could easily be at any rank of top 10 songs ever produced.
Amazing song. Whoever thinks this song is not number 1 is dumb. The lyrics are amazing, jimmy page is amazing and everything about this song is great.V 381 CommentsUListen to Sample
Stairway to Heaven is a little too mellow for the whole Led Zeppelin feel. This song tops it by a long shot. If you haven't heard Kashmir, you haven't heard Led Zeppelin. At least that's my opinion.
You here this at least once a day on an advert or something like that and its one of those songs where it really gets you going sort of thing - you feel like you could do anything...
Stairway is too mellow to be best rock song. It's top 3 for best ever song, but not rock song.
I believe this master piece should be at the top. Brillaint song. Tops! Infront of Stairway to heaven but not by much!
This song is the greatest. They named a place in asia after this song. They must have been really crazy about this song.V 175 CommentsUListen to Sample
I wanna whole lotta love too. I lost my virginity to this song hahahahahaha. Greatest blues rock masterpiece that left me breathless no pun intended
That part where the music starts up after the "unorganized" part in the middle is the best 20 seconds of music ever made. Period.
This is the only one of there 4 best songs that actually cracked the top 10. This is one of Page's best guitar riffs ever. I think everyone missed out by not putting this higher than number 5. The other three songs everyone missed are Bring it on home, Ramble On, and Moby Dick. Those should be the top 4 right there. The bass in Ramble On is sickest of all of them.
Pages solo blew my mind.V 55 CommentsUListen to Sample
The solos, The drums, the vocals, the lyrics, the melody, the composition, nothing gets better than Achilles last stand. This is one of those tracks that you wish never ended. NEVER EVER. Solo is better than that of stairway to heaven. UNDOUBTEDLY in my mind. Music does NOT get better than this.
The vocals and guitar solos are breath taking. Anyone with true taste knows this is better than Stairway to Heaven. They lyrics tell a great story too. This track epitomizes the concept of epic.
The perfect combination of guitar and drums. "The mighty arms of Atlas hold the heavens from the earth" just superb
Best song they ever wrote. Shame the rest of the Presence album wasn't up to par with it.V 133 CommentsUListen to Sample
Ooh, picking the best Zeppelin songs? That's a tough choice, but Black Dog definitely needs to be recognized. That's not to say other Zeppelin songs are bad, because they're all awesome, but... C'mon... It's Black Dog!
Most definitely second to Stairway to Heaven of the Zeppelin empire...Black Dog is the song to listen to while cruising with top down. - sonnyman
Man, this song really rocks! It's kind of rock'n'roll style! Man you need to hear it!
The Best song leading off the Best album
A killer in every way!V 53 CommentsUListen to Sample
The drum line rules! *this* is the kind of song you can truly call a classic
Just the most epic Led Zeppelin song I've heard. Also this song is the first zeppelin song I heard and the tune was imprinted into my mind since then. This song has some very complex techniques such as the backward echo of Robert plant playing the harmonica which is so unique. Page is definitely one of the greatest musicians of all time. Jon Bonham and Jones add quite well to the song. This song is rarely been performed live as it is very difficult to replicate the effects used by the band in recording.
Every Led Zeppelin song is amazing and its very hard to choose but this one tops my personal chart as my favourite Led Zeppelin song.
This song is so sick. The drum line is as good as it gets, Page is at his best, and Plant just adds the punch to this amazing song.
This is probably the most epic song of all time hands down! A Great listen and this album is a must-have for all Rock fans!V 86 CommentsUListen to Sample
Love This Song amazing Start Should Be Number 2 Or 3 Vote This Song Please Listen To This Song Please amazing love it one of their best
I heard this for the first time in 2018. It was released in 1970 but even after 38 years it is Rock at its best I think. I listened to Stairway to Heaven before this because I knew how famous it was and I loved it but it is not the rock I like. It is like Hotel California, iconic and a great song but it doesn't represent the style of Led Zeppelin completely. I listened to Immigrant song once or twice that day and 2 days later I was watching Thor 3 Ragnarok and as soon as I heard the Background Music I was breaking my head wondering where I heard this before. It was perfect for the movie. Its like the movie was made for the song not the other way around. Anyway, Immigrant Rock is pure bliss is bliss is rock and I got a sweet spot for those songs.
Catchy as heck.
My childhood. I love it. - CharismaticKatV 99 CommentsUListen to Sample
This is the second best Led Zeppelin song. It contains thing that only Led Zeppelin themselves would, for example, the dark interlude in the middle with Bonham's dark eerie drumming with PLant's roaring vocals mimicing Page's guitar. It starts out slowly then turns into an epic solo. This song fully exemplifies Led Zeppelin's great skill and talent.
This song is too amazing to be rated merely at number 12.
Now THIS is heavy metal!
This is just to goodV 64 CommentsUListen to Sample
Vastly underrated, but one of Led Zeppelin's best songs in my opinion. Such an amazing spectrum of sounds.
My favourite by far. Check out the live version from the 24th May 1975.
It is an extended version of No Quarter and one of the best Jams I have ever seen in my life.
Criminally Underrated. My favourite Led Zeppelin song.
this song always makes me shiver just cause of the way Robert Plant's lyrics and shallow voice effect play throughout the song. Truly amazingV 51 CommentsUListen to Sample
I've listened to just about every led zeppelin song there is to listen to (and I'm including bootlegs and live takes here) yet no song has every hit me quite as hard as this one. Plant and page really shine in this one, and this is easily one of plant's best vocal performances ever. And page takes infusing emotion in his playing to a whole new level. I mean he doesn't just make his guitar cry, he makes it WAIL. When I listen to this song, I'm able to just close my eyes and turn off my brain and visualize them playing it live. Not only is this my favorite led zep song but it is also my favorite song of all time. And I'm not one who picks favorites.
Jimmy Page at his best. Jazz inspired throughout but with a rock n' roll flavour to it. Inspiring, why Jimmy is the best ever.
The first time I've heard this song, I was speechless. Everything about this song is absolutely perfect! My favorite ever song, can't get enough of it.
It transports me to a different world. The tempo, the feel, the mellow power. Page and Plant shred it!V 114 CommentsUListen to Sample
Been a long time been a long time been a long...
This song is the definition of rock and roll... A masterpiece and the epitome of the high standards raised by this band. Their number one song for me by a country mile and the reason they were the kings of hard rock.
Rock And Roll is Amazing, it should Be at least number 8...
I hope you guys REALLY listened to the songs in the top 10.. - JohnPaulJones
I you haven't heard this one, your life must be so sad - rock2metalV 42 CommentsUListen to Sample
I literally get tears in my eyes every time I hear this song, I don't like to listen to it too often, it's more than a song to me, by far the best song I've ever heard.
Stairway to heaven is epic, but so over played as to be nauseating. Over the hills... Is the best blend of musical and lyrical quality without being played quite into oblivion.
I think that Over the Hills and Far Away should be at least tied to the #1 song. It states what most to all of us see and feel in our lives.
This is Led Zeppelin's greatest song! - jprg12V 61 CommentsUListen to Sample
What the hell, this song is way better that 5 of the top ten.
Better than Inmigrant song in my opinion - juanjaramillom
What a Guitar Riff! So simple, yet so brilliant. - vivekvenugopal
Listen to the bass -
This is a top 5 song.
This has to be in any legitimate top ten list. The turns the song takes the listener on throughout the song are amazing.
Good guns! This is such a hard choice.
for me the best song in the album (led zeppelin II), and notice that the album includes great ones, such as "whole lotta love" or "heartbreaker", also, is the only song on the album that combines the characteristic whispery/groundshaking duality that would remain in their following recordings. Sorry for my bad english, greetings from Mexico!
This was the first Led Zeppelin song I ever heard, and I loved it.
The Bass Line - galaxyfox
My favorite. - damian101
Are you kidding me? This is one of the best songs of Led Zeppelin.. I mean.. It has to be in the top 3! This song has everything.. The guitar work is really amazing and the vocal did a really really good job in this song.. They put a lot of feel in this song!
Even though it's not their original song, it's probably one of the best pieces Led Zeppelin have ever recorded. A lot better than the original version, but it's just my opinion.
Better then stairway to heaven - ShugaRoyV 52 CommentsUListen to Sample
This song is brilliant. The guitars sound orchestral, and Robert Plant brings emotional lyrics and vocals to the table that make it one of the band's most beautiful songs, no acoustic guitars required. - ThatDudeRoss
This song is very soothing to me. The overall tone of the instruments encompass what the song is about and I feel that this song has not gotten the notice and appreciation from the masses like many other of Led Zeppelin's songs. I actually use this song to help me sleep sometimes because I, like many others, can relate to what's being talked about in the song, and, like I said previously, the song is soothing. 5/5 star song yet it remains #9.
Great song and contains one of Page's most underrated guitar solos.
What the hell kind of voting system is this? How in the world is Ten Years Gone this far down on the list?V 47 CommentsUListen to Sample
This is perhaps Led Zeppelins most underrated song, yet it is also perhaps their most energetic song. This song has many similarities to When The Levee Breakes, but far better, Page's work with the steel string guitar is simply fantastic, John Paul Jones bass and John Bonham's drums bring a whole new level of power to this song which is perhaps the best word to describe this song. Power. Sheer Power. Every time I hear the opening riff to this song it's enough to bring a shout of joy from even the deepest heart, especially the live version. If you have not heard this song, you owe it to yourself to take a listen to this masterpiece
This should be #2, and Achilles Last Stand should be #1.
This song is the absolute best, page's guitar effects, plant's amazing vocals, jones not even playing rhythm, and bonham's amzing drumming!
Top 2 for sure. It's the only Zep song that rivals Achilles Last Stand, which is their best.
1) Achilles Last Stand
2) In My Time Of Dying
3) How Many More Times
4) Dazed And Confused
5) Babe I'm Gonna Leave You
6) Good Times Bad Times
7) Over The Hills And Far Away
8) When The Levee Breaks
9) Whole Lotta Love
10) Fool In The Rain
that being said, Led Zeppelin II is still their best album.
This is by far the most beautiful and musically advanced song Led Zeppelin recorded. It is pure serenity
You guys are smokin the wrong stuff this is obviously their best song Jimmy goes hard and so does Robert plant.
Better than Ramble On and Inmigrant Song. Deserve to be top 10... Great song! - juanjaramillom
This song leaves tears in my eyesV 43 CommentsUListen to Sample
That's a good song. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo
First album, first side first song. Nailed it out of the gate. If they had stopped right there, they still would have been legendary.
This should probably be in the top three... the drums, the bass, and the singing in this song is are amazing... - jprg12
My favorite Zep song ever. I saw them play this at Berkeley Community Theatre in 1972, and it rocked the house. Page played with his Les Paul below his waist--lower than anyone else I ever saw. Don't know how he did it. Hard to bend wrist to make chords when guitar is this low. Bought this album in 1969, and I would rate it in my 10 favorite albums ever. This thing, along with Are You Experienced and Disraeli Gears (you could throw Jeff Beck's Truth in there, but it didn't have quite the impact of the other 3) defined a whole new genre of music. And this was the best song on the album.V 22 CommentsUListen to Sample
Best Guitar riff ever! - KillerQueen1774
I love the countdown intro, right to a heavy guitar rift
The opening guitar is like a punch in the face. It's fierce. It's heavy. It's zeppelin.
Well put. This song shows how led zep really is.
"We've done four already, but now we're steady, and then they went, 1,2,3,4...!
Most underrated LZ song! The soothing acoustic guitar and vocals give you the sense of relaxation and pleasure. - VenomxShocker
This is a very laid-back, almost folk-sounding song from Led Zeppelin IV and is very different from most of the band's other work. The mandolin in this song is absolutely beautiful. - scrawny67
I really love this song and think that its totally under rated plant was so amazing in this song
Lacking Bonham's drums and the characteristic hard rock and heavy metal sound Led Zeppelin was becoming known for, "Going to California" sees the band going for a more folk rock vibe with great success. With Jones on mandolin, Page on acoustic guitar and Plant singing his heart out, the song also showcases the band's softer side and incredible range.V 22 CommentsUListen to Sample
The fact the That mastermind Page can factor a mandolin into a rock song and the lyrics are mystic... Maybe not #1 but it should be in the top 10
The Battle Of Evermore is an amazing Led Zeppelin Song, no matter what jIMMY PAGE plays he makes it sound incredible I love this song to death and should be top 15.
incredible zeppelin song, one of the best from led zeppelin 4 give it a listen sometime
The mandolin really makes this song and the addition of Sandy Denny really makes it one of the bestV 19 CommentsUListen to Sample
I love the name of the song, I love the riff, I love the album cover...
At least top 10!
This deserves top twenty at least - TheLegoJedi
WHAT?! But what about the riff I mean GEEZ it's a great song! - lilbullet111V 10 CommentsUListen to Sample
The only Led Zeppelin song I like. I bought a Led Zeppelin album just for this song.
Not a big Zeppelin fan but I ADORE THIS SONG! I could never ever get sick of it.
This is probably my favorite by Led Zeppelin I mean I literally have all of their songs on my iPod and all of their vinyls they are all rock. Roll gods!
24? Really?V 20 CommentsUListen to Sample
Love the time alternative signature and Latin feel. Led Zeppelin were real musicians who continued to push their musical boundaries. John Bonham's shuffle beat lays down a real slinky groove...
Relish this classic track.
This song truly shows how great of a lyric writer Robert Plant was with a clever story. As well as John Paul Jones classic piano riff and Jimmy Page's badass solo.
fool in the rain is one of my favorite zeppelin songs! it should be in the top ten - 678rob754
This is an awesome song with a signature drum line. The beat from the song Rosanna by Toto was ripped off from here.V 9 CommentsUListen to Sample
This is so underrated. I discovered this song and now it's my 2nd favorite of theirs behind Stairway. How's that for opposite ends of the spectrum? Stairway is the most famous, while this song is pretty much unknown. Yet, they are both amazing
Should be higher up, in my opinion.
8:30 of pure eargasms. I love how it starts out softly then the guitars roll in with the riff. Can't forget of course the amazing drum beat and and twists and turns in this song.
This song is quite possibly the most underrated song ever! My favourite Led Zeppelin song, all of the different sections fit together so well, brilliant guitar work and god-like vocals!
How can this be so low? It's absolutely great. Just listen to the riff and the vocals. One of my favourites surely!V 6 CommentsUListen to Sample
The best love song of Led Zeppelin written by Plant for his wife... Got some good acoustic action by Page and really good drumming by Bonzo, not to mention the organ solo by JPJ
I was stunned when I looked on this list and this song was not in the top ten. It is the most melodic piece zeppelin ever performed and is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. I deserves a spot in the top ten.
Great love song with heartfelt singing from plant... Makes me cry whenever I listen it.
Such a great song.. Very different from the rest of the albumV 7 CommentsUListen to Sample
Current favourite. But my favourite changes regularly, there's just that many amazing songs
Some say that Stairway is overrated and Kashmir is underrated. Kashmir is what's overrated, this is underrated.
Great song with heavy guitar and a solo smooth like butter on bread.
just a plain under-rated song. The opening guitar-riff puts you in a
psychedlic transe -
Starts slow, and then one of the best Led Zeppelin riffs starts up. This is one that once you listen to it a few times, everything sounds incredible. This is too underrated.
Very top 10 worthy, if you dont appreciate this piece of work you dont undertand the real influences of the greatest band ever Led Zeppelin
The first time I heard this song and the page's guitar blasted in followed by bonham's drums, I think I came. This song is honestly in my top 5 favorite Zeppelin songs it is outrageously underrated.
It's just awesome. That screaming guitar after Plant's bluesy harmonica intro absolutely blows you away.V 9 CommentsUListen to Sample
This has to be the most underrated Zeppelin song ever. Whenever I find other people's rankings of the songs on IV, everyone says this is their least favorite song on the album. But why? It's hard driving, the guitar is great, the drumming is amazing, and the vocals are some of the best Plant ever did in a Zeppelin song. It's my favorite on the album and easily in my top 5 Zeppelin songs. - Aweso
Top 20 for sure. Come on people!
Vastly underrated. Signature drumming from Bonham,great riff from Page,solid bass from Jones,and soaring vocals from Plant. Classic Zep. Should be top 10.UListen to Sample
Hey this should be like number 5 or something like that! - pinillj
44? Are you kidding me? It should at least be in the top 15. Very energetic song with AMAZING guitars and a great vocal performance by Plant. Just listen to it.
The way Page's driving guitar kicks off the song sets up the vibe: completely full of energy and power.
This should definitely be higher. Its a great guitar driven song, very underrated. Should be top 20.V 8 CommentsUListen to Sample
Should be on LZIII instead of Hats Off to (Roy) Harper. Great B-side. - Metarock
35 I suppose is acceptable beings that this is LZ's list. Still my favorite though.
Very underrated acoustic jam. Excellent lyrics, the mandolin is beautiful, and it has such a soulful performance by Robert Plant.
Has to be one of the best original acoustic pieces, alongside stairway to heaven and over the hills and far away, this should be higher; lyrics and singing blend to make it a classic zeppelin blues ballad, and the guitar base and drums make it a cacophony of good musicV 8 CommentsUListen to Sample
If they had donated this cheese-rock tune to Kiss it would have been a win-win for everyone.
Although not very known, this song is a very powerful rock song
Led zeppelin never played this live because they didn't want to, this song is a good song but isn't as creative as the other ones, there are lots of other songs like this in the 70s scattered all around, don't get me wrong it's a great song but its nothing compared to stairway to heaven or kashmir.UListen to Sample
the most incredible acoustic song of led zeppelin
this is by far a classic, you can never say one is number one, they all are
This song contains one of the most beautiful guitar solos I've ever heard. This song was written while Page was in The Yardbirds; but I don't think they recorded it.
Very underrated of their songs. This song is my second favorite songs of theirs. - zxmV 6 CommentsUListen to Sample
How is this number 32?!?!? Truly a top 5 song!
This is the Zeppelin song I can remember most from my childhood, and it has always been my favourite
Excellent song! Very cool how it goes from a regular 4/4 feel to a 1/2 time feel. Perfect drumming
The opening of this song always gets me up and dancing more than any pop crap from today possibly could. Nothing can replicate the feeling I get from listening to this, it's just... AWESOME.V 4 CommentsUListen to Sample
#1 for me, should at LEAST be top 10, but this website is not exactly where the music connoisseurs come to gather.
The dark opening, the heavy riff, the buildup, the otherworldly guitar sequences, capped by an ending of indescribable and stunning freedom-epitomizing guitar playing make for the greatest song of all time. Led Zeppelin's best moment
This song is top 10 material for me! 55 is just absurd. Of course, Led Zeppelin had so many epic songs that it's hard to put any anywhere. That's why lists like these are so controversial.
What,this should be #1V 9 CommentsUListen to Sample
Bonzo > Neil Peart
Actually, it IS the best. If you watch the LZDVD, you'll see how amazing he is. Greatest drummer who ever lived.
not the best but an awesome drum solo - rockman
This song just shows how extremely talented of a drummer John Bonham really was. Rock drumming wouldn't have been the same without Bonzo. - HardRockSamV 6 CommentsUListen to Sample
Bob is angry with someone here. This is never a favourite of anyone but it's one of mine. I like the change of drum patterns each time Bob sings the song title.
Why number 50? This song is arguably better than "Black Dog"!
Another very underrated song
Should be higher. Tremendous ending. - zxmV 2 CommentsUListen to Sample
I started looking for this song after I didn't see it in the top 20 I was shocked and saddened! Granted, the sentimental value attached to this song for me personally is what makes it my favorite Led tune, but damn, 38!? This song is so beautifully crafted. Plant's delivery is haunting and comforting all at once and god damn man, when the back and forth guitar riff starts up after the mid song pause... It's like magic! One of Page's best and most memorable in my opinion. Most of the songs that sit higher on this list are amazing as well, but this song should definitely be higher, at least top 15! It's incredible and a must listen for any Zeppelin fan or music fan in general!
41 really People I am grateful I saw them live. This is the one I remember most. So Good!
Terrific song. Should be higher
This is one of those really dynamic songs by Zeppelin that many people don't know about. Turn it up loud and enjoy!V 18 CommentsUListen to Sample
Its Zeppelins best song, hands down. That riff makes me feel good, and my day is just much better every time I hear that song. - icruz18

How is this so low? Unbelievable song!

Just grade A riffing
Badass song - no sissy stuff here cars and women...
This song is a classic
its gotta be higher up
So surprised this song is so low. I feel like it's one of their more radio exposed songs as well. Anyways, like much of all Physical Graffiti, this song blew me away the first time I heard it. So catchy and so easy to groove to. Definitely prefer it over much of the Top 10. It's just a classic.V 26 CommentsUListen to Sample
This has to be the best song ever written, way to low. Listen to the guitar and tell me this song isn't awesome. You can't.
I can't believe this wasn't even on the list! By far, greatest Zep song ever!
Amazing song should be tops!
Should definitely be in the top twenty. Probably 'cause it isn't so popular. If more people knew about this tune, it'd be waaay higher up. Really shows a different side of them, out of the dozens they have.UListen to Sample
Very original introduction. Awesome through and through. It is a song to sit back and chill to. This should be higher on the list.
Very original intro with an outstanding solo.
Great song to listen to while on the highway driving at night. One of my favorites.
Should be much higher on the list.UListen to Sample
This should be in the top 10.
Robert Plant and John Paul Jones really took led zeppelin to a whole new level this song. I was really surprised when I found out that Jimmy Page didn't write this song along with Robert Plant and John Paul Jones.
What!? How this song can be so underrated? Beautiful song that should be in 20's spots - juanjaramillom

My favorite led zeppelin song!
Have to agree simply amazing, check out Joe Bonamassa's cover possibly as good if not better.
Simply Amazing! Page's guitar sings throughout the whole song and plants vocal is amazing: not to forget Bonzo and Jonesy. My favourite song on Presence.

This wonderful song is unreasonably low on the list. Great ballad! Or maybe it's just me, loving it for the sad lyrics?
I'm actually offended that this song is number 43 and Kashmir Immigrant Song and Achilles Last Stand are so high.
Not even close to their best songs, but deserves to be ranked a lot higher
Very good song should be in top 20 in my opinionV 8 CommentsUListen to Sample
The moment when the mouth organ comes in is one of the best Led Zep moments ever
I like how he sings the riff it sounds awesome its also a classic you gotta love it its zeppelin

Very underrated, I mean seriously HOW MANY OF YOU KNEW THIS SONG BEFORE SEEING IT ON THIS LIST?! Poor Tom is also the song with almost like, the best drumming ever.
Totally awesome, WAY too low on the list, awesome acoustic guitar solo
