Reasons Why Led Zeppelin is Better Than Black Sabbath

The Top Ten

1 Led Zeppelin had a wide variety of music, while Black Sabbath was all Metal

Black Sabbath also had a variety of music. Their first album was a blues rock record, while the next was hard rock/heavy metal. Their third (Master of Reality) was a doom album with some of the heaviest riffs ever. Their fourth mixed their style with jam band/hippie music, even Elton John stuff. Their fifth was progressive rock and their sixth was avant-garde with progressive rock and metal. Their next two were pure hard rock and their eighth (their first with Dio) was a mix of heavy and power metal. - Caleb9000

While Communication Breakdown, a song not even in my top 5 was better than Black Sabbath's best song, Paranoid.

Geezer is better than John Paul Jones. - Userguy44

6 Led Zeppelin had a more consistent bandline

Once their drummer, John Bonham, died, they had to break up. Black Sabbath, had more than one singer. Anyone heard of Ronnie James Dio? , or Ian Gillan? What about David Donato? Ray Gillen?

7 Jimmy Page and Robert Plant are better at writing songs than Black Sabbath Members
