      Another awesome song. Led Zeppelin... what else can I say?

    • 1. Trampled Underfoot by Led Zeppelin
      Greatest intro I've ever heard. This song has everything; it's got a funky, awesome beat and it's full of energy.

    It was an English sweep for me. I guess it's safe to assume I like Led Zeppelin. 70's rock puts today's rock to shame. Rock on.
