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

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

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

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

15 Stairway to Heaven - Led Zeppelin

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

Covers multiple genres, and should be higher.

Why is this still new

Why isn't this number one?

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
