Most Overrated Led Zeppelin Songs

I'm not disrespecting Led Zeppelin, in fact they're probably my favorite band. I just think that these songs are given perhaps more credit than they deserve. And I'm in no way implying that I don't like these songs because I do. Just not as much as other people seem to.

The Top Ten

1 Stairway to Heaven

This is like, the 20th best Led Zeppelin song, if that. Not even close to the best.

I vote this list as the worst idea for a top ten list at this site. 99.9% of Led Zeppelin's incredible music sounds BETTER as time passes. Can't say that about most rock (or any) music.

Nah. I think you should be saying this to Worst Led Zeppelin songs. - MontyPython

Amazing song and one of Zeppelin's best, but it overshadows many of Led Zeppelin's other songs. - MontyPython

Sorry but I do not like this song - BigBrotherSucks

5 Kashmir

I know Stairway to Heaven is much better known, but its popularity is in a better proportion with the quality. At least this song could help me fall asleep. - Alkadikce

I was very upset to not find this at #1. It's mediocre and much longer than it needs to be, and yet it's considered one of the best songs of all time. - Songsta41

It's a bit good, its not mediocre but indeed I think it's the most overrated led zeppelin song

Repetitive, bland, and just downright annoying. - IronSabbathPriest

At least this song is Original - christangrant

6 Achilles Last Stand

This song is actually really overrated. The guitar solo is great, but far from the best Led Zep solo. The vocals aren't loud enough for such a powerhouse song, it doesn't impact me that much. And it goes on for too long. Some people can say the same statement for Stairway, but this is just my opinion. This song is still good though. - MontyPython

I love this song. It's not overrated either. Fairly rated I'd say. - IronSabbathPriest
