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

The Top Ten

1 Highway Star - Deep Purple

Pure Metal. No bluesy things anymore

Just amazing Surprised it beat stairway to heaven

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 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

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

The chord progression gave me goose bumps the first time I heard it, and it still does.

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

3 Perfect Strangers - Deep Purple

Why are Deep Purple and Black Sabbath being compared to a mediocre band like Zeppelin?

4 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

5 Children of the Grave - Black Sabbath
6 Smoke On the Water - Deep Purple
7 Iron Man - Black Sabbath
8 Achilles Last Stand - Led Zeppelin

Very energetic riff

9 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

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

great song - waldo

10 Child In Time - Deep Purple

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

Same song, different packaging as higher up on the list.

The Contenders

11 Trashed - Black Sabbath
12 Time for Bedlam - Deep Purple
13 Neon Knights - Black Sabbath
14 Soldier of Fortune - Deep Purple

Truly a classic


15 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

What is Led Zeppelin doing with Black Sabbath, and not The Rolling Stones?

Why isn't this number one?

Covers multiple genres, and should be higher.

Why is this still new

16 Fool in the Rain - Led Zeppelin
17 Mistreated - Deep Purple

19 Children of the Sea - Black Sabbath
20 Computer God - Black Sabbath
21 Hard Lovin' Man - Deep Purple
22 Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin
23 Heartbreaker - Led Zeppelin
24 Black Night - Deep Purple

A great song for headbanging. The riff to the verses is pretty thrashy. - Metal_Treasure

26 No Quarter - Led Zeppelin
27 Any Fule Kno That - Deep Purple
28 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
29 Stormbringer - Deep Purple

32 Lazy - Deep Purple

Hard to tell if this is better than evety Black Sabbath songs, but it's one of my favourite songs of all time since I first heard it about 15 years ago. I can say for sure that it beats every led zeppelin song and any other deep purple song in my opinion
