Best Songs Between Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and Led Zeppelin


The Top Ten

1 Highway Star - Deep Purple

Just amazing Surprised it beat stairway to heaven

Pure Metal. No bluesy things anymore

This song is great,the best part about this song is the solo,especially the middle part, the part with E,B,G,D,A chords (3rd lick) - zxm

This is [always has been] one of my favourite rock songs EVER. The guitar and organ solos are really inventive and the best since IN ROCK. Flight of the rat is my personal Purple fave.

2 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath

One of the most quintessential metal songs of all time - music, lyrics and performance. Awesome metal riff and great vocals from Dio. - Metal_Treasure

3 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

At least Stairway to Heaven wasn't number 1 - christangrant

As far as I know its completely free from any plagiarism,and this song is quite great,the opening guitar riffs sound like a monster riff and if this riff would be a metal riff(though this riff is quite heavy) then it would sound better

when I first heard this riff it didn't sound like a '75 song.more modern - zxm

4 Perfect Strangers - Deep Purple
5 Child In Time - Deep Purple

One of the best Deep Purple songs. Ian Gillians vocals were perfect.

6 Smoke On the Water - Deep Purple
7 Trashed - Black Sabbath
8 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

Awesome! I love this song, perfect percussion and lyrics...

12 Time for Bedlam - Deep Purple
13 Fool in the Rain - Led Zeppelin
14 Children of the Grave - Black Sabbath
