The Top Ten
1 Stairway to Heaven

This song takes me back to the medieval times in Europe where oppression and injustice from monarchy were rampant. It gave enough material for the then writers of history to chant in poetry and add tones to the sufferings of the regular commoner. I learned medieval history while in high school, and it made me a romantic of the Middle Ages. I remember seeing the injustice, and on the weekend, my buddies and I ran to the movies to see Errol Flynn and the likes take care of justice. It made me a romantic of the poetry being expressed and the bearer of the hopeful promise that your inner sense of justice promised.

I remember listening to this song for the first time. I heard of it being highly praised just about everywhere and wanted to check it out. I wasn't too impressed (shame on me), but after a couple of days, it somehow came up in my mind again, and I decided to give it another shot. And I started listening to it again, and again, and again. It just felt like it got better every time I listened to it. The slow intro with Page's magical riff, leading you to Plant's harmonious vocals, and then Bonzo takes it over with his amazing drumming skills. And I think we all feel the same about what comes next: the guitar solo! Jimmy Page delivering not only his own, but also the world's very best. It is the perfect transition into the hard rock ending of Stairway to Heaven, which still blows my mind every time I listen to it. So thank you, Zep, for teaching me the value of music.

This song changed the way I listen to music forever; it was the first time I really felt emotions in music, the first time it touched my heart, not just my mind. A peaceful start that builds up to a climactic ending in the way that is done in this song is what makes it the best, in my opinion. Stairway to Heaven was my absolute favorite song (from any artist) for about three years. I was very stubborn about it too. Led Zeppelin changed my music category, and then, a few years later, Pink Floyd pushed me even further. Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd are my two favorite bands.

This is obviously the best rock and roll song in history, but I hope this song will not be forgotten because some of that rap/hip-hop or other genres not related to rock (or metal) modern music and artists, which are awful in my opinion, have taken over. I've heard that rock is dying. But this song will not keep me from changing my liking for rock and roll. This song is like the heart of rock and roll, and let's hope or do something to keep it alive. I really like this song, and I hope Stairway to Heaven remains a historical treasure for a long time.

2 Kashmir

Kashmir has an unbelievable, hypnotic feel to it. I put it on loop 12 times the first time I heard it. It easily has the most powerful riff in the world. The drums are unbelievable. The switches in tone are beautiful, and the way Bonham leads us out of the switch with some beautiful drumming is unbelievable. Especially the "All I see turns to brown" part... the music is unbelievable with the violin chipping in. It is a masterpiece, but it is rightly placed at second as "Stairway To Heaven" is God...

You hear Stairway to Heaven so often that it starts to become a little old, but Kashmir is not nearly enough appreciated and is far more brilliant (also Zeppelin's favorite song). Kashmir makes you feel like a god. It's like a song dedicated to God. You get this powerful feeling when you hear it, especially the chorus. I am literally transported to another world when the amazing guitar riff starts at the beginning of the song. I'm not saying Stairway is bad, but it's just not nearly as good as Kashmir.

Stairway to Heaven may in fact be the best song of all time. However, for whatever reason, I have literally worn out my first copy of Physical Graffiti listening to Kashmir over and over. As long as the tune is, for me, it's such an incredible song that I will always listen to it until the very last note is played, regardless of where I am and what I'm doing, should it just happen to come on the radio or randomly be played in public. I could turn the channel while Stairway was playing, or even turn the radio off if I were in a hurry. :-)

Despite being eight and a half minutes long, this Physical Graffiti track found radio airplay and received much critical praise. Inspired by Eastern music, Led Zeppelin skillfully blended hard rock, art rock, progressive rock, and symphonic rock to create one of the songs they're most proud of. With its famous chord progression and musical contributions from session players, "Kashmir" wasn't only a live staple but also a band favorite.

3 Whole Lotta Love

Though "Whole Lotta Love" is filled with a whole lot of guitar goodness, it's Page's blues-influenced power riffing during the intro that remains implanted in our brains. Taken from their sophomore effort, the track became their first American top 5 hit. Thanks to Plant's wailing, Page's riffing, Bonham's drum solo, and Jones' timeless bass, this gold-certified track is undoubtedly one of the band's signature tunes and best songs.

This is the only one of their four 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 four right there. The bass in Ramble On is the sickest of all of them.

Oh, yes... raw, grinding blues-metal, with all four of the guys at their top form. And just about the only time you'll hear totally out-to-lunch noise on the radio is when they spin this and play the whole middle break! It's designed to make your parents hate it... even today... and that's what makes great ROCK.

I LOVE this song! The opening is probably one of the most iconic of all rock songs. The great middle part makes me feel like I am in a tornado at one point! The end of the middle part, with Page's high guitar solo, is amazing. Also, I love the end too! There's not a part of this song that I don't like! It's one of their best.

4 Achilles Last Stand

After listening again, I changed my mind on my last comment. The guitar and lyrics flow with the steady drums, the bass keeping everyone in line. This is a song worthy of use in an epic movie, particularly a battle scene. It needs to be heard at least twice before judgment, so as to catch the details intricately woven in. Led Zeppelin's Plant, Page, Jones, and Bonham were tired and stressed when they made this song and album, in a short time right after Plant's car crash. This is their rough side. It's better than modern music and always will be. Their talent remains historical and legendary.

I would argue that both this song and Kashmir are better than Stairway to Heaven. Achilles' Last Stand truly encompasses all of Zeppelin's talent in one rocking song. Sadly, though, it's one of the more underrated Zep songs, due to the fact that it's on one of their lesser albums. By Zeppelin standards, of course, Presence is a better album than 95% of what other rock bands could muster. While Stairway to Heaven is one of the greatest songs of all time, I argue Achilles' Last Stand to be the greatest Led Zeppelin song.

This and "Black Dog" are the greatest songs by Led Zeppelin. "Achilles' Last Stand" has one of the greatest guitar riffs, amazing drumming, and my favorite lyrics of all time.

Best line: "If one bell should ring, in celebration for a king, so fast the heart should beat, as proud the head with heavy feet." Just epic. No song (except other classics by Zeppelin, the Beatles, Hendrix, etc.) can even be in the same galaxy as this masterpiece.

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. The solo is better than that of Stairway to Heaven. Undoubtedly, in my mind, music does not get better than this.

5 Black Dog

One of the few Zeppelin songs that can be associated with heavy metal. Zeppelin was not a heavy metal band at all, but this song brought out the strong riffs of Page, Bonham's powerful drumming, and Plant's a cappella vocals, highlighting how great of a singer he was. And of course, we can't forget John Paul Jones and his beautiful bass playing. It's my favorite track by Zeppelin and one of my favorite tracks of all time by any artist.

Sure, Kashmir and Stairway are better musically, and I may even argue that "Over the Hills" is my favorite overall, but I can't help but imagine what the producers and people in the '70s were like when they put Led Zeppelin IV on for the first time. They must have wondered, "Hmm, let's see if they've still got it," and then this riff happens.

With its unforgettable Jones-penned riff and inimitable energy, "Black Dog" is one of the band's most well-known tracks. Alternating between a cappella vocals and musical sections, the top 20 hit was the perfect fusion of Led Zeppelin's hard rock and blues-rock style. It also quickly made its way into the band's concert setlists.

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... come on... it's Black Dog!

6 When the Levee Breaks

This is just the most epic Led Zeppelin song I've heard. Also, this song was the first Zeppelin song I heard, and the tune has been imprinted into my mind since then. This song features 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 contribute quite well to the song as well.

This song has 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 it's very hard to choose, but this one tops my personal chart as my favorite Led Zeppelin song.

The drum lines, the emotions, the riffs - all of these impeccably combined into one song make it one of the best. This song deserves to be 3rd on the list. When you listen to it, you just imagine yourself as the boss. There's no way you could continue being depressed after listening to this. Truly, it's a classic. I listen to all sorts of metal songs, blues, classics, and out of all the songs of all genres I've heard so far, this song is in the top 10 list. Stairway to Heaven is not even in the top 20.

This is my favorite Led Zeppelin song, and it's on one of the best albums ever (Led Zeppelin IV). I am a rather young fan of them and inherited their original records from the sixties. My grandfather influenced my taste in music by giving me all of his records. The best rock and roll (Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Kansas, Boston, The Eagles, etc.) seems to have been ignored by the younger generation. It's truly sad.

After Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie wrote and recorded this blues tune in 1929, Led Zeppelin tried their hand at it in the early 1970s. The band's version of the track added hard rock elements through Bonham's deep drums, Page's guitar, and Plant's vocals and harmonica playing. The result was an effects-heavy metal number that is as subtle as it is complex, but also oh-so-Zeppelin.

7 Immigrant Song

I heard this for the first time in 2018. It was released in 1970, but even after 48 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's 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. Two days later, I was watching Thor 3: Ragnarok, and as soon as I heard the background music, I was racking my brain, wondering where I had heard this before. It was perfect for the movie. It's like the movie was made for the song, not the other way around. Anyway, Immigrant Song is pure bliss, and I have a sweet spot for those songs.

I love Robert Plant on this song. I love his voice! Page drives the melody, and Bonham and Jones provide rock-solid rhythm. Best. Led. Zeppelin. Song. Ever. Screw Stairway to Heaven - it's boring, overplayed, and mediocre by Zeppelin standards.

More than most of their songs, you have to be Led Zeppelin to pull off a live performance of a song like this. That's why their concert recordings of it all sound better than the album version.

Stairway to Heaven and Kashmir may be their most well-known songs, but this song is the most addictive and has the best riff. This is a masterpiece. One of the greatest riffs ever! Go Led Zeppelin.

8 Dazed and Confused

Though singer-songwriter Jake Holmes actually wrote "Dazed and Confused," Page first contributed guitar work to a recording of the track when The Yardbirds covered it in the mid-60s. He then brought it to his Led Zeppelin bandmates, who added heavy metal, blues, and hard rock flavors to the psychedelic rock original. With different lyrics, an altered melody, and Page's use of a bow to play his guitar, it quickly became one of their most performed pieces.

This is the second-best Led Zeppelin song. It contains things that only Led Zeppelin themselves would do. For example, the dark interlude in the middle features Bonham's dark, eerie drumming, with Plant's roaring vocals mimicking 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 is my personal favorite Led Zeppelin song! Especially the 30-minute-long live version on "The Song Remains the Same" is absolutely mind-blowing. "Dazed and Confused" is also considered one of the first heavy metal songs, which makes it even more generally important. Moreover, I think at least one song representing the first Zeppelin album should be in the top 5.

This song is divine. When Page lets loose that eerie riff and Plant lets loose his howl, it feels like the sky is splitting open. Experimental, surreal, arresting, "Dazed and Confused" is the kind of song that comes along once in a band's lifetime. It's a testament to how amazing Led Zeppelin is that this song is barely in the top ten.

9 No Quarter

Far from their most popular song, No Quarter may be their greatest. You cannot argue against the brilliance of Stairway or Kashmir or any other song, but this is phenomenal. Is it their best? I cannot say. How can a band of this magnitude have a best album, let alone a best song? No Quarter to me is such a journey, and it's their most creative song.

With powerful, wise journeyer lyrics like "the snow drives back the foot that's slow," and that incredible guitar riff, this epic is extremely important. Most people don't even know what "No Quarter" means. Let the Oriflamme fly and get this song into the top 5.

Zeppelin's best song, in my opinion, is so unique, beautiful, and strange. Tool's cover is also a beautiful song. I remember the first time I really heard this song was on an acid trip. It felt so intense and amazing.

I just recently discovered "No Quarter," and I can't stop listening to it. This song takes you to another place and is as good as any of the big ones. The version in "The Song Remains the Same" is the best.

10 Rock and Roll

How is this song not in the Top 5? It's a rock and roll classic with better staying power than the overplayed and overhyped Stairway to Heaven. It's better constructed than Black Dog, which admittedly has a great riff, and far less self-obsessed and pretentious than Achilles' Last Stand. How is that long, rambling, and pointless effort in anyone's Top 10?

This song is the definition of rock and roll. It's a masterpiece and the epitome of the high standards set by this band. It's my number one song by a country mile and the reason they were the kings of hard rock.

This song is iconic as well as a good jammer. I've played this song in bands for close to 30 years. To see the crowd go wild is just priceless. In my opinion, it should have made the list. Truly AMAZING song!

Any song that begins with Bonzo's stripper beat, followed by Jimmy's guitar, Robert's vocals, and JPJ's bass and keys, is going to be magic and pure talent. True to its song title, it's my all-time favorite!

The Contenders
11 Since I've Been Loving You

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 ever 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. Page takes infusing emotion into 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, turn off my brain, and visualize them playing it live. Not only is this my favorite Led Zeppelin song, but it is also my favorite song of all time. And I'm not one who picks favorites.

Hey guys, what the hell happened that made this song disappear from the Top 5? Led Zeppelin is the number one band of the '60s and '70s. It's obvious that Pink Floyd, The Doors, The Beatles, and Black Sabbath have also released their historical albums, but Zeppelin comes first. Almost all the songs they have written offer something special to the people who listen to them. My ranking would be: 1. Stairway to Heaven, 2. Achilles' Last Stand, 3. Kashmir, 4. Since I've Been Loving You, 5. Immigrant Song. That's my opinion, at least. I hope those who agree with the unfair ranking of Since I've Been Loving You will vote it up.

The song starts as a dark pain, creeping in and building up the tension. It explodes at the end with wave-like rolls, drowning the listener. Everything is done with immense musical power: from the subtle guitar blues lick in the beginning to the power chord refrain and jazzy turnaround. Emotional lead vocals and drums serve as an earthquaking heartbeat.

The dramatic change from C minor to C major and back near the end is, in one word, brilliant. The vocals express despair up to a level of insanity. Only this insanity breaks up the tension for just a single moment, coming back and finally ending in acceptance and defeat.

From the first time I heard it until now, the song captivates me completely every time. In my humble opinion, it is a classic song that hasn't received the appreciation it deserves. Is real beauty far from the madding crowd?

Definitely gives you the blues vibe that really inspired some of Led Zeppelin's best long "epics." The lyrics and vocals are some of Plant's most screechy, but they convey the message of the song well. Page's guitar really layers in imagery, while Jones' bass and Bonham's drums keep things moving smoothly and intricately. The setup makes you picture Robert Plant in a dark, empty room on stage with a spotlight. The camera shows you different angles while Page, Bonham, and Jones are in a blue spotlight.

12 Over the Hills and Far Away

Mixing folk rock and hard rock, this track from "Houses of the Holy" had Page playing both acoustic and electric guitar alongside Robert Plant's characteristic vocals. But what really makes "Over the Hills and Far Away" special is how well John Bonham's drums and John Paul Jones' bass work together. Though it only charted within the Billboard Hot 100's top sixty, the single allowed the members to play with its lyrics and musical parts during live performances.

Growing up in the late '70s and the '80s with Detroit radio, WRIF & WLLZ, I got exposed to a lot of Zeppelin at a young age. It's very hard to do. Here's my top 20:

1. Over the Hills and Far Away
2. Stairway to Heaven
3. Whole Lotta Love
4. Kashmir
5. Black Dog
6. Ramble On
7. What Is and What Should Never Be
8. The Ocean
9. Immigrant Song
10. All My Love (yup, 10!)
11. Good Times Bad Times
12. Heartbreaker/Living Loving Maid
13. Rock and Roll
14. Misty Mountain Hop
15. Houses of the Holy
16. Dazed and Confused
17. When the Levee Breaks
18. Ten Years Gone
19. Communication Breakdown
20. Fool in the Rain

That's how I see it.

I love LZ's music. They are absolutely my favorite band. Picking a favorite song of LZ's is like picking your favorite child. I tend to love them all. But if someone put a gun to my head, this is the song I would choose, not only as my favorite LZ song but as my favorite song, period. It's truly an amazing composition of musical art. Over the Hills and Far Away is it. Simply perfect.

A continuously changing rhythm manages to maintain its beauty, wonder, awe, and elegance. It moves your heart with each pluck of a string, with each tap of a drum. It is a short, sweet dream. It is a hidden masterpiece.

13 Ramble On

This should be in the top 10! For me, it was an easy choice to put this as my number 1 Led Zeppelin song. The change in Plant's voice between verse and chorus makes me shiver every single time I hear this song. Not to mention the great guitar parts in the chorus, the amazing bass line in the verse, and Bonham, who is excellent in every Led Zeppelin song.

It has everything needed to be number 1! How do 23% of you guys vote for Stairway to Heaven (which is good but definitely overrated) as the best song? Listen to the first four albums in their entirety before voting for Stairway to Heaven just because it has a good solo.

"Ramble On" may have been co-written by Page and Plant, but it's also a fine example of Jones and Bonham's musical chemistry. With lyrics inspired by "The Lord of the Rings," "Ramble On" is a four-and-a-half-minute number that fittingly mixes folk rock with hard rock. It also proves that Page wasn't only a talented guitarist but also a talented producer.

For me, the best song on the album "Led Zeppelin II" is noteworthy because the album includes great ones, such as "Whole Lotta Love" and "Heartbreaker." It is also the only song on the album that combines the characteristic whispery/ground-shaking duality that would remain in their following recordings. Sorry for my bad English. Greetings from Mexico!

Just the start of the song and the acoustic guitar are enough. Also, to listen to it properly, my son made me listen to it on record. Well worth it. The crackles and pops make it legendary. Please do it.

14 Heartbreaker

It's sinful that this isn't in the top ten at least. "Heartbreaker" has one of the most profound and memorable riffs of all time, which isn't really saying much since we're talking about Led Zeppelin here. Even still, this is arguably their most recognizable song from the first two seconds.

EXTREMELY underrated song. The guitar riff is the best I've EVER heard. The unaccompanied solo is also brilliant, even though some say it's sloppy. That's how Jimmy Page wanted it to be played, so stop complaining!

This is literally my favorite rock song ever. The riff is fantastic, and the guitar, bass, and drums all mesh so well together in this song. They are so harmonious it's incredible.

Kirk Hammett picked up guitar after hearing this masterpiece from a cassette his sister bought. Enough said... This song literally gave birth to Metallica.

15 Babe I'm Gonna Leave You

Are you kidding me? This is one of the best songs by Led Zeppelin. I mean, it has to be in the top 3! This song has everything. The guitar work is really amazing, and the vocals did a really, really good job in this song. They put a lot of feeling into it.

It's definitely in my top 5 list. It clearly depicts the helplessness and angst of a lover who wants to let go and stay at the same time. Simple lyrics, yet the composition of the music takes it to a whole new level. Oh, the chills.

The amazing guitar starts out mellow and depressing. Then it completely rocked out when I first listened to it. It surprised me so much and instantly became my favorite Zeppelin song.

It should definitely be in the top 3. Come on, it's totally one of their best works! It has the right to be the 2nd best song of Led Zeppelin. Of course, their best song is Stairway to Heaven. No other song can compete with that.

16 The Rain Song

In all honesty, everything that was written and composed by Led Zeppelin is a piece of eternal art. However, if I had to pick one song, out of every song in the world, that evoked the most emotions and took me on a true spiritual journey, it would be this song. Alongside the mystical and emotional strums of Jimmy's guitar, the sensitive drum beats of John Bonham, the evocative tune of John Paul Jones's organ, and the magical echoes of Robert's lullaby, this song, this anthem, is one that penetrates the soul.

It somehow allows you to reach beyond the grasps of mortality, and for just one second, one beautiful second, you come to some metaphysical understanding of who you are. Once the song ends, you are left in the world of uncertainty, but with a thread of hope for the existence of truth that is this immortal piece of work. This song deserves to be in a much higher rank!

This is my absolute favorite. It's just so beautiful. I'm so disappointed that this isn't in the top ten at least. I know people can have very different tastes, but I can't imagine how anyone could not love this song, because I adore it. It's just beautiful. I don't know what else to say.

Most underrated Led Zep song ever! This is one of the most beautiful things ever. It has its way of making me feel so calm and relaxed. I'm a dude, and if there is anything I want at my wedding, even for the slightest bit, it would be to have this song played.

I can't believe this didn't even make it to the top 10. Led Zeppelin has tons of super awesome songs with amazing drums and scorching solos, but this song... It's the definition of beauty.

17 Ten Years Gone

My love for Zeppelin really pushed me into the world of music. When I discovered Mothership, I set out to buy any album I could lay my hands on. I thought I'd heard it all until I heard this song. I remember listening to it 3-4 times in a row, just being so mesmerized by what I heard. No matter how many times I listen to each album, through each song, this one will always be the one for me. This song has gotten me through two years of heartache. As sappy as that sounds, it just spoke volumes to me during that time. I love this song.

This song is very soothing to me. The overall tone of the instruments encapsulates what the song is about, and I feel that this song has not received the notice and appreciation from the masses like many other Led Zeppelin songs have. 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. Like I said previously, the song is soothing. It's a 5/5 star song, yet it remains at #9.

This song is unmatched, and as an avid Led Zeppelin fan, Stairway and Whole Lotta Love always make a difference in my life. But Ten Years Gone takes on a different meaning every year of my life. Those who think they are Zeppelin fans but don't appreciate this song are jokes.

When you learn how to play Jimmy's music, you gain a whole different perspective on what is the best composition in respect to the symmetry of a hook, riff, or song. Ten Years Gone has clean tone and distortion. This is Led Zeppelin: the alternating between heavy and light. It's a very powerful song. From a player's point of view, I will pick up my lesson soon.

18 Good Times Bad Times

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've ever seen. I don't know how he did it. It's hard to bend your wrist to make chords when the guitar is this low. I bought this album in 1969, and I would rate it among 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 three), defined a whole new genre of music. And this was the best song on the album.

Everything is just amazing in this song. It starts with a basic riff with drum fills between each one, and then Plant starts singing. After that comes the bass solo, and then the guitar solo. It's just too good.

Really, how could this list be so huge but not have the legendary Good Times Bad Times? Bring this to the top. It's every bit as epic as Stairway to Heaven.

Should be higher. Even though this is only a 2-minute and 46-second song, it's still great. Led Zeppelin is one of my favorite albums by Led Zeppelin.

19 In My Time of Dying

This is perhaps Led Zeppelin's most underrated song, yet it is also perhaps their most energetic song. This song has many similarities to When the Levee Breaks, but it's 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 it: 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.

Seriously underrated. Yes, it does start off slow and bluesy, but when it gets rocking - not even Rock 'n' Roll or Achilles' Last Stand measure up to it. It should be in the top 10, way ahead of Immigrant Song and Black Dog. Those two are alright, but it's the posers that listen to those. A true Led Zeppelin fan would call this one of the best.

Best rhythm they've put together. Talk about the blues. Jimmy Page is the best of the best. Underrated Zeppelin for sure. Physical Graffiti altogether was a masterpiece and way better than IV (untitled).

The epitome of Led Zeppelin. This is the creative climax of the band and the best song of Physical Graffiti. It mixes their blues-rock and folk-rock influences and blends into a hard rock classic. One of the best of all time.

20 The Ocean

This song makes you feel the ocean. It's like a spray of salty water to the face. The imagery it evokes makes you feel like you're on a ship being swayed by the ocean. Definitely worth listening to. It's classic Zeppelin.

I really don't understand how this isn't in the Top 10. The interesting shift from a 4/4 beat to a 7/8 beat makes this really engaging. The vibe is pure Zeppelin, and I believe this is them at their best. The guitar is incredibly cool and it makes you want to sing along. It's cocky, and that's Led Zeppelin at their best.

My personal favorite has amazing energy right from the opening riff. I love the lyrics: "Got no time to pack my bags, my foot's outside the door. I got a date, I can't be late, for the high hopes hailla ball."

I'm surprised this isn't higher on the list. The song has an incredible guitar riff by Page and well-sung lyrics by Plant.

21 Going to California

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.

I love a lot of Zeppelin's stuff, but this song just blows me away. It's so unlike anything else they ever did. Jones is an amazing mandolin player and just an all-around musician. Plant's vocals are just perfection. Page is, well, Page. I've heard it was written about Joni Mitchell, who is certainly worth writing about.

This song is very different from other Led Zeppelin songs. However, this song never fails to make me shiver. It is definitely my favorite song of theirs. I'm in love with the melancholy of this beautiful song.

This is by far Zeppelin's greatest song in my personal opinion. Lyrically, it is genius and a majestic masterpiece. Musically, it is a melodic and folky/acoustic take on their regular sound. It's pure love.

22 The Battle of Evermore

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 think it should be in the top 15.

The fact that the mastermind Page can factor a mandolin into a rock song, and the lyrics are mystic... Maybe it's not #1, but it should be in the top 10.

I think the creativity and uniqueness of this song are incomparable with a lot of other songs.

Acoustic brilliance. Page and Jones become one unstoppable force.

23 Communication Breakdown

Wow is all I have to say for this song! It's so catchy and awesome! I love the guitar riff and the kind of crazy, fast, psycho feel it has to it. So energetic and full of life! Five stars!

Why is this so low? It's one of their few original songs that was way ahead of its time. A true and essential heavy metal classic.

Stairway to Heaven is my favorite, but I voted this up because it needs to be higher! Great song!

Had a great deal of influence on punk rock. Not to mention, it's an amazing song.

24 D'yer Mak'er

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 'n' roll gods!

Such an underrated Led Zeppelin song. It's one of the most tropical and relaxing classic rock songs I've ever listened to.

Axl Rose liked this song too! I think that this song is so cool and it sounds all Jamaican and shamanic! Jesus Christ, I think it's the second best; Stairway to Heaven will always be number one.

Best song to blaze to! Catchiest riff. Jimmy Page is a genius.

No way this song should be out of the top ten. No way.

25 Thank You

One of the first songs I heard from Zep was this. Plant sang this and a part of Kashmir at the tribute concert for the late Freddie Mercury. Maybe it's not the longest, hardest, or broadest song from Zep, but the feeling is unlike anything else. Thank you, Led Zeppelin. Thank you, Bonzo.

I was stunned when I looked at 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. It deserves a spot in the top ten.

This is a very underrated song, not even doing well on the list of underrated Led Zep songs! I can listen to this song over and over, and it keeps me in a good mood. Thank you!

The best love song of Led Zeppelin was written by Plant for his wife. It features some good acoustic action by Page and really good drumming by Bonzo, not to mention the organ solo by JPJ.
