Worst Led Zeppelin Songs

The Top Ten

1 Hats Off to (Roy) Harper

This is my vote for the worst Zeppelin song. It is the only one that I just don't like!

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.

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

Not that bad

2 Hot Dog

Second worst to Fool in the rain

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.

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.

Okay, forget my last comment, that was a bit loud, haha. Anyways, I don't agree with this list. AT ALL. Personally, the only Led Zep song I kinda don't like is Hats Off. - MontyPython

5 Candy Store Rock

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


6 The Crunge

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

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

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

Just awful and to think title track and the rover were left off the album!

7 The Lemon Song

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

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

I guess if your having sex its good - KingCharlesIlI

Very...interesting lyrics. - galaxyfox

8 Out on the Tiles

I like this song. - Metarock

This shouldn’t even be on the list.

9 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

Also their shortest

10 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.

Worst. Only hot dog is close

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.

Am I dreaming or do I see Whole Lotta Love on the worst Led zeppelin songs. This list is dumb. If you don't like these songs or Led Zeppelin, JUST DON'T LISTEN TO IT!. ;(

15 Immigrant Song

The reason I'm voting for this is its overuse in popular culture. It takes away the joy of listening to Led Zeppelin without thinking of Thor Ragnarok or Shrek the Third. I used to really like this song. Now I don't really. - galaxyfox

This is like their 6th best song! What

Good song but Plants screaming makes me laugh.

16 Rock and Roll
17 Ramble On

Ramble on is a good song

18 Bron-Y-Aur Stomp

This is one of their best. Super underrated

19 Gallows Pole
20 Black Dog

I love Led, but this song sucks.

Garbage at all costs. It is so la,e and awful and I don't feel like listening to it at all. -1/5 - AlphaQ

21 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?

22 Misty Mountain Hop
23 Royal Orleans
24 Moby Dick

Underrated gem

25 Poor Tom
26 The Battle of Evermore - Led Zeppelin

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

27 You Shook Me
28 D'yer Mak'er

WHAT? I love this song! Sure, the lyrics are a bit lackluster but seriously take it off this list. - galaxyfox

They should have made another version - KingCharlesIlI

29 Four Sticks
30 Good Times Bad Times
31 Nobody's Fault but Mine
32 That's the Way
33 Black Mountain Side
34 I Can't Quit You Baby
35 Your Time is Gonna Come
36 Thank You
37 Going to California
38 Walter's Walk
39 Bonzo's Montreux
40 Night Flight
41 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.
