Top 10 Reasons Why Led Zeppelin Is Better Than the Beatles


The Top Ten

1 While The Beatles are fantastic, they overshadow many other great bands.

And that's a derogatory thing? Zeppelin is "better" because they don't overshadow others as much? Oh, Monty, you made me laugh - Billyv

Lol, if you love both bands, why make the list? But I do love both bands as well. - IronSabbathPriest

No Led Zeppelin song is that original

2 Even though Ringo Starr is a great drummer, John Bonham nails it.
3 Led Zeppelin can sometimes express more feeling into their songs. V 1 Comment
4 Even though McCartney is a good bassist, John Paul Jones is a better Bassist and has more experience to it
5 Even though Lennon is good, he never even took lessons on a guitar.
6 The Beatles' guitar solos are short and sweet, Led Zeppelin's guitar solos have more feeling put into them.
7 Led Zeppelin lasted for 12 Years, The Beatles Lasted For Ten

Well, if it were like that, then the Insane Clown Posse would be better than both of these artists combined.

Actually, their Still going! Robert and Jimmy Page are still playing! - McKing1003

8 When performing live, Led Zeppelin was more fun to watch since they moved around more. The Beatles were fun to watch due to their charming personalities, but during concert they usually just stood still.

Zeppelin was known for their bloated, self-indulgent, incomprehensible live performances that sounded very little like their recorded output. The Beatles were so popular, the screaming drowned out anything you could hear, and the band were in constant danger of psychotic crazies, or simply being over-run by stampeding fans.
I'd call that a tie.

9 Led Zeppelin is never recalled for bad songs, but The Beatles are constantly insulted about songs like Revolution 9 and Obla-Di-Obla-Da.

This is laughable. Have you ever heard of Hot Dog? Hats off to Roy Harper? Poor Tom? Led Zeppelin wrote some laughingly bad songs. Plus Obla-di-oblada is a great song. - TheStargazer

10 The Beatles did do many genre's of music in their songs, but Led Zeppelin had done more genres.

Incorrect: The Beatles did more genres in one album than LZ did in their entire careers.

The Contenders

11 Jimmy Page is better guitarist than George Harrison, Paul McCartney and John Lennon

Possibly. I prefer George's sound. - Billyv

Well, I do prefer it. Lol. Along with his other multi-faceted and substantial contributions. - Billyv

12 They had better membership

I disagree. The Beatles had some differences between them, and some conflicts as most people spending so much time together in a small group in such unique situations, but there is no question or doubt that they all had a special affinity and Love and Respect for each other, overall and through most of their lives - Billyv
