Led ZeppelinFound on wikimedia.org
Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition ...read more.
They are one of the biggest bands of the 70s. It's not that the band itself is overrated but the song "Stairway to Heaven" is actually the one overrated since whenever someone hears of Led Zeppelin they associate it with "Stairway to Heaven" and it's overplayed on radio statipms. They have many other great songs that are acclaimed such as Kashmir, Whole Lotta Love, Dazed & Confused, Black Dog, Rock and Roll, In My Time of Dying, etc. The posers who say they are "fans" or listen to Led Zeppelin probably just listened to Stairway to Heaven. By the way, I'm not a fanboy that's trying to defend the band or anything.
The person who said that they plagiarized, where is your facts? You seem to have a very good description on all the other (that YOU believe) reasons why the band is "overrated", but when you said that they plagiarized, your just shouting something out without any proof? If you're going on about the "Stairway to Heaven" trial, wow, you know nothing about the situation.
"Other than their plagiarisms"
I...what? Plagiarism is pretty much the deciding factor if a song's bad or not. Well, not really but if a song is plagiarizing another, it is bad no matter its quality, and the fact that you used the plural noun means they did it on more than one occasion. - WonkeyDude98
HOW THE FRICK FRACK SNICK SNACK IS LED ZEPPELIN OVERRATED? Not only do they have 4 of the best musicians at their positions, some of the best songwriting ever, and some of the highest record sales to date, but every album can be classified in the top 500 albums ever easily maybe save coda. Led zeppelin I was one of if not the greatest debut album of all time, led zeppelin IV is regarded by millions as one of the best, Houses of the holy and Physical Graffiti are masterpieces, Presence and In through the Out Door are incredible, and all albums I didn't mention are also amazing. So stop whining that people like them more than Rhianna and Kanye West because there's a reason for that, THEY'RE BETTER THAN THEM
To the other poster, Led Zeppelin is my favorite band but I don't shove it in people's throats. I listen to their music because I like it and if other people ask me who my favorite band is, I tell them: Led Zeppelin. I feel Zeppelin, Stones, and Beatles fight for the best bands ever.
Led Zeppelin and nirvana should be number 1 and 2 on this list, Led Zeppelin just feels like generic bluesy rock to me. Deep purple and Black sabbath are much better
How is this band not in the top 10? One Direction and the Jonas Brothers receive far too much hate to be considered overrated, and anyone who knows The Beatles' influence will know that calling them overrated is calling rock 'n' roll itself overrated. In any case, the main reason why I consider this band to be the most overrated musical act to ever exist is because there's only one song that modern fans seem to know them for. Hint: "There's a lady who knows all that glitters..." yes, that one.
That's something that a lot of fans cannot and refuse to understand : there is no such thing as ''the greatest band of all time".Every kids/teen favourite band is automatically the greatest band of all time. A lot of fans choose to never grow up from that state of mind. It certainly looks like a harmless behaviour, but I do think it's always dangerous to treat humans, as gifted as they are, like gods amongst men.
Led Zeppelin just isn't that great. Plant's voice is annoying and the songs are lazily made. Example: Whole Lotta Love, which is mostly the band playing lazily and singing "Whole Lotta Love" while high.
You wanna know why Led Zepplin is overrated? Cause they're the only famous band not to be included on this list yet. All I ever hear about old music is how awesome and godlike this band is. Yes they're awesome, but they are not the best band ever.
Overrated. Overrated as hell. People get so hyped over a not so good band whoa - AlphaQ
If Led Zeppelin is just generic bluesy rock to you, you have never heard Achilles Last Stand, Black Dog, or The Song Remains the Same.
This list is pretty horrible. It looks like whoever made the list just named a bunch of pop bands and added some legendary bands just to make this a list. - Sabbath
First the Beatles and then Led Zeppelin just because lots of people like something doesn't mean that it's overrated it actually has to be worse than what the fans say - Himalayansalt
In my opinion, they're only as popular as they are because of Stairway to Heaven and Kashmir. Based on their other songs, Top 5 seems too high, 11th - 20th would make more sense. - JustAnotherUser_
Other than the Beatles, which is more of the fanbase's fault than the band's, Led Zeppelin is easily #1. They created NOTHING. NOTHING. How am I supposed o believe they created metal when 1) they weren't a metal band and 2) their music was stolen from other people? As in, 20 cases of plagiarism. The songs themselves aren't bad, but this fanbase acts like they created all music when they didn't even make their own. - WonkeyDude98
The fact that you put Led Zeppelin here because of your personal opinion on their music and their fans just shows how much you lack basic musical understanding.
They're just not that good. They're not bad, they just aren't great.
I definitely agree with one of the commenters here. They are an okay band but their fans worship them way way way too much and most of them are very arrogant. Like I said when I was commenting on The Beatles and One Direction, this is just my opinion and I respect your opinion if you do disagree otherwise. But don't get all crazy and butthurt if you cannot handle and respect my opinion!
Oh lord, these bastards are so overrated. And Robert plant needs to take that stick out of his ass when he sings.
Jimmy Page, John Bonham and John Paul Jones were all talented players of their instruments (Although Jimmy Page was far from the greatest guitarist of all time, as some seem to believe), Robert Planet on the other hand was an awful frontman. And their songs were either plagiarised, badly written or both.
Whoever voted Zeppelin or the Beatles does not understand music
I just cannot believe it what are they doing here they're the best ever people who voted led zeppelin don't know a thing about music
Okay, Stairway to Heaven was already established as not plagiarism, let it go. - naFrovivuS
People that voted Zeppelin are a joke. All of their albums are masterpieces - Sabbath
