Worst Led Zeppelin Songs

The Top Ten
1 Black Dog Black Dog Cover Art

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.

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.

How is "Dazed and Confused" (an actual good song) above this mess. Robert Plant probably phoned in this excuse for a song.

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

2 Hats Off to (Roy) Harper Hats Off to (Roy) Harper Cover Art

A raging unorganised mess that seems to go nowhere and doesn't achieve anything at the same time. No clue what the point of this song is meant to be. They should have replaced this with Hey Hey What Can I Do on the album.

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 get how some people like this song it is just annoying guitar and gibberish called singing. But the Mighty Zep is still my favorite music group.

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

3 Hot Dog Hot Dog Cover Art

This song is hilarious and actually good

Second worst to Fool in the rain

This is a joke

worst... just the worst.

4 Dazed and Confused Dazed and Confused Cover Art

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.

The regular version is okay but the live version is half an hour too long!

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

What the hell, that's my favorite song by them

5 The Lemon Song The Lemon Song Cover Art

I take back what I already said about this song. I don’t like the sexual verse but it’s a pretty meaningful song with great guitar.

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

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

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

6 Bron-Yr-Aur Bron-Yr-Aur Cover Art

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


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.

7 Out on the Tiles Out on the Tiles Cover Art

I like this song.

This shouldn’t even be on the list.

8 LA Drone

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

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

Does this count as a song

Also their shortest

9 The Crunge The Crunge Cover Art

Who told Jimmy Page that ripping off bad 70s funk was a good idea. It feels more ABBA than Stevie Wonder. And Robert Plant just can;t sell this song, with his screeching vocals that sound just under Dazed and Confused level self pitting. This is just what Led Zeppelin haters hear when they listen to Over the Hills And Far Away. Deserves number 1, some songs are hard to sit through, but this is just should never have touched a human ear.

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.

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

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

10 Whole Lotta Love Whole Lotta Love Cover Art

I can’t believe I used to like this.
The instrumentation (especially the riff) is quite good, but the horrific lyrics as well as the obnoxious moaning from Robert Plant definitely isn’t. Led Zeppelin have tonnes of amazing songs, but this just ain’t one of them.

I like the instruments, especially the drums but oh god the vocals are so unpleasant to listen to for me. Robert Plant shouldn’t scream at all because it’s straight up annoying. The lyrics ain’t that good either...

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!. ;(

The Contenders
11 Candy Store Rock Candy Store Rock Cover Art

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


12 Ten Years Gone Ten Years Gone Cover Art

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.

This is my favourite Led Zeppelin song

13 Fool in the Rain Fool in the Rain Cover Art

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!

Worst. Only hot dog is close

14 Rock and Roll Rock and Roll Cover Art
15 Immigrant Song Immigrant Song Cover Art

Good song but Plants screaming makes me laugh.

This is like their 6th best song! What

I'm starting to get sick of this song

But this is good.

16 Ramble On

Ok I don't know what this lists problem is. Why is one of zepps BEST SONGS on this list? Zepps worst song is hats off to Roy Harper. Also WHY IS BLACK DOG ON THIS LIST

Ramble on is a good song

17 Communication Breakdown Communication Breakdown Cover Art

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

I really hate this song

22 D'yer Mak'er D'yer Mak'er Cover Art

I can't stand this song. The vocals are absolute trash and the instrumental doesn't stand out in any way.

They should have made another version

23 Misty Mountain Hop Misty Mountain Hop Cover Art
