Best Songs Between Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, and Led Zeppelin
The Top Ten
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.
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
Why are Deep Purple and Black Sabbath being compared to a mediocre band like Zeppelin?
One of the most quintessential metal songs of all time - music, lyrics and performance. Awesome metal riff and great vocals from Dio. - Metal_Treasure
Very energetic riff
Awesome! I love this song, perfect percussion and lyrics...
great song - waldo
One of the best Deep Purple songs. Ian Gillians vocals were perfect.
Same song, different packaging as higher up on the list.
Truly a classic
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
A great song for headbanging. The riff to the verses is pretty thrashy. - Metal_Treasure
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
