Worst Led Zeppelin Songs

The Top Ten

1 Black Dog

This sounds like something I could expect from Nickelback or Theory of a Deadman.

Not the worst, but it is a very overrated song. It just seems Page had a great thing on and everyone just came in and ruined it. Everyone else sounds lazy, uninspired and generic. Still good because there's no bad song on that album, but man what a mess. - RoverStMuse

A lot of people are saying that this song sounds like Nickelback, but let's be real, even Nickelback would cringe at this horrible song.

Butt rock before it was cool.

2 Hats Off to (Roy) Harper

Complete garbage and should have been replaced with 'Hey Hey What Can I Do' instead

This is what happens if Revolution 9 and folk music some psychedelic fusion dance, and form one soul being; one that nobody should like, whatsoever.

Hate this song, the fact that so many good songs are on this list just shows led zeppelin is amazing! :-) - Sultan_of_Swing

I don't think I've heard a song so messy since Revolution 9 by The Beatles. This song is messy, terrible and bland. - Metarock

3 Dazed and Confused

Wha... what-- who wouldn't like this?

Seriously? Who cares if it's too long live. It's amazing anyways! - MontyPython

The only reason I voted for this is because page never gave credit to Jake Holmes until after he was sued. Love this song though.

Whoever made this list, DIE! - queeniifan

4 Hot Dog

This song is hilarious and actually good

This is a joke - queeniifan

Second worst to Fool in the rain

worst... just the worst.

5 The Lemon Song

When people complain about 2010s music only being about sex and drugs and the 1970s classics being meaningful while this song exists... - Alkadikce

The only reason I don't like it is because of its lyrics - Toucan

I guess if your having sex its good - KingCharlesIlI

Great guitar but bad lyrics. But still doesn't deserve to be on this list.

6 Bron-Yr-Aur

This song doesn't fit Led Zeppelin, But this is still one of my favorites, because it's so soft and peaceful. I think this list is unorganized. Stairway to Heaven, Dazed and Confused, Good Times Bad Times. These songs were on Mothership (A Led Zeppelin Album) for a reason. There the greatest Led Zep Songs. I think the worst is either Candy Store Rock, Royal Orleans, or Hats off to Roy Harper.

There's no such thing as a bad zeppelin song and why the hell would anyone put all of these songs I mean there's only one zeppelin song I dislike and that's the crunge but I still like it. Please remove this list

This list should not exist.


7 LA Drone

I'd vote for this, but this doesn't count as a song in my opinion - Nickelstickman

Does this count as a song

It is 13 seconds and it's on How the West Was Won. - queeniifan

Also their shortest

8 The Crunge

The name says it all. It’s cringe. Also hats off and night flight are amongst their worst. They don’t have many bad songs though.

It may be weird but it is fun. Not bad. - therootbeer

This and Hats Off are the two Led Zeppelin songs I hate. The rhythm is way too off-putting, and Robert's vocal diatribes at the end annoy me after a while. - Gg2000

I have almost every Zeppelin album. However the crunge makes me cringe. Oh, it is so terrible!

It's an amazing piece! (Everyone has their opinion, but that is mine) - Fuziion

9 Out on the Tiles

I like this song. - Metarock

This shouldn’t even be on the list.

10 Candy Store Rock

I like the tempo of this song except for the screams part, it kinda scares me


The Contenders

11 Ten Years Gone

This is a great track off physical graffiti. In my personal opinion, I don't think that there is exactly a bad Led Zeppelin song except for maybe hats off to Roy Harper. - matty925

This is my favourite Led Zeppelin song

12 Whole Lotta Love

What's wrong with you whole lotto love and ramble on should not be on here

This song is absolutely awesome it shouldn't be here! - matty925

I'm sorry, but I just can't stand the lyrics. The instrumentation and vocals are awesome though.

Belongs in the rubbish

13 Fool in the Rain

I love this song

I don't know, this song is just funny to me, I love it and its definitely better than the crunge. God that is some bad zeppelin, this song may be six mins, but the crunge feels longer than dazed and confused live.

Gives me an immediate headache. This song is a train wreck.

I hate this song so much! Boring and depressing as hell!

14 Rock and Roll
15 Immigrant Song

This is like their 6th best song! What

Good song but Plants screaming makes me laugh.

I'm starting to get sick of this song - KillerQueen1774

But this is good. - Userguy44

16 Communication Breakdown

What's wrong with you

17 Ramble On

Ramble on is a good song

18 Stairway to Heaven

Best song ever don't know why it's on here

Screw this song


You are.out of your mind stairway does have a upbeat pray

19 Gallows Pole
20 Bron-Y-Aur Stomp

This is one of their best. Super underrated

21 Misty Mountain Hop
22 D'yer Mak'er

They should have made another version - KingCharlesIlI

23 Bring It on Home

This list is a mess, I think it gave me cancer

what are communication breakdown, fool in the rain, dazed and confused and IMMIGRANT SONG doing on this? bring it on home also has one of the best riffs I've ever heard

i'm not even gonna mention stairway at #13

The Riff is so sexy.
How is it on here?

24 Royal Orleans
25 Night Flight
26 Friends

The worst part about Led Zeppelin III is that to get to an epic album, I gotta get through the monotonous, but stellarly performed, "Immigrant Song", and whatever the hell this thing is. Worst thing Zeppelin ever recorded. Horrible vocals, out of place strings, annoying and awkward guitar line (sorry Jimmy). Nothing about this track works.

27 Moby Dick

Underrated gem

No! - Userguy44

28 Poor Tom
29 The Battle of Evermore - Led Zeppelin

I think this is one of the best off Led Zeppelin IV. - Metarock

30 You Shook Me
31 Four Sticks
32 Good Times Bad Times
33 Nobody's Fault but Mine
34 That's the Way
35 Black Mountain Side
36 I Can't Quit You Baby
37 Your Time is Gonna Come

No this is great - queeniifan
