Top Ten Best Songwriting Partnerships In Rock and Metal


The Top Ten

1 Rod Stewart/Ron Wood

Stay With Me, Shake Shudder And Shiver, Cindy Incedently, Borstal Boys, Poolhall Richard, some of the best rock songs ever written.

2 John Lennon/Paul McCartney

The awesome partnership of everyone's favourite 60's rock band. I feel sorry for George Harrison though. - IronSabbathPriest

3 Mick Jagger/Keith Richards

An underrated partnership compared to Lennon and McCartney in my opinion. I just wish that they had given Mick Taylor credit on certain songs (Sway, Moonlight Mile, Winter, Time Waits for No One, etc.) - Gg2000

Both Still going strong today. - IronSabbathPriest

4 Angus Young/Malcolm Young

I fear it might only be Angus now... - IronSabbathPriest

Those two are the heart and soul of AC/DC, great songwriters - Shake_n_Bake13

Both have contributed to all of AC/DC's songs. - IronSabbathPriest

5 Jimmy Page/Robert Plant

Wrote a lot of Zeppelin's songs together. - IronSabbathPriest

6 Jeff Hanneman/Kerry King

Although they occasionally wrote separately, they both wrote the awesome Raining Blood! - IronSabbathPriest

7 Hansi KÜRSCH / André Olbrich

They've been writing together for 30 years and they wrote great songs. They are perfectionists.
Blind Guardian rules.
André focuses on music and Hansi on lyrics.
André comes up with some general idea (melody, riff), other members contribute and then Hansi arranges everything.
Hansi wrote both music and lyrics only for their first 2-3 albums. - Metal_Treasure

8 Dio/Ritchie Blackmore
9 Don Henley/Glenn Frey
10 Adrian Smith/Bruce Dickinson

The Contenders

11 James Hatfield/Lars Ulrich
12 Jim Morrison/Robbie Kreiger

Because Jim was such a charismatic, flamboyant, person, the other members of The Doors tend to get ignored. Such a shame. - PetSounds

Writing credits usually just listed as "The Doors".

13 Holland/Dozier/Holland

Motown's greatest songwriting team

14 Carole King/Gerry Goffin
15 Amy Lee/Ben Moody

They are fantastic songwriters. Love you Evanescence - 05yusuf09

16 Chester Bennington/Mike Shinoda
