Top 10 Rock and Metal Songs of 1971


The Top Ten

1 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

Was released at the end of November in 1971, but is not really "of" 1971. It really belongs to 1972.

What the hell? STH is number 2 god damn!

2 Echoes - Pink Floyd
3 Children of the Grave - Black Sabbath
4 Baba O'Riley - The Who

Sorry, but as much as I like Children of the Grave, this song is definitely better than it

5 Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who

I can't claim to listen to The Who a lot (I respect them), but this song is definitely better than Baba O' Riley. The drum performance is better and the intro isn't as annoying. - IronSabbathPriest

IronSabbathPriest, thank you - now I know I'm not the only one who thinks the intro to Baba O' Riley is annoying (it's too repetitive and long). I wrote something similar on my remix before that. - Metal_Treasure

6 Fireball - Deep Purple
7 Into the Void - Black Sabbath
8 I'm Eighteen - Alice Cooper
9 Look at Yourself - Uriah Heep
10 Demon's Eye - Deep Purple
