    • 10. Achilles Last Stand by Led Zeppelin
      The thing with Zeppelin is all their songs could knock off these ten.
    • 9. Kashmir by Led Zeppelin
      Would say "Time", but Time sucks compared to this.
    • 8. Misty Mountain Hop by Led Zeppelin
      I would use these last three slots for Floyd songs (second best band), but hell no.
    • 7. Black Dog by Led Zeppelin
    • 6. The Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin
      Robert Plant had/has the greatest voice ever, IN ANY GENRE OF MUSIC, greatest singer in the world, better than all 6 billion of us.
    • 5. Fool In The Rain by Led Zeppelin
      Probably didn't even try hard to produce this song and it's still better than any other band's music.
    • 4. Over The Hills And Far Away by Led Zeppelin
      Reason I like Led Zeppelin way more than Pink Floyd. LED ZEPPELIN IS BETTER, NOT EVEN CLOSE.
    • 3. D'yer Mak'er by Led Zeppelin
      As good as any song ever.
    • 2. The Rain Song by Led Zeppelin
      Better than anything Floyd, Queen, or anyone could ever try to do.
    • 1. Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin
      Led Zeppelin didn't even like this song and it is still ten times better than anything ever.

    Led Zeppelin is the greatest thing that has ever happened, ever, and that includes all events or things in this world, even outside of music.

    • 10. Width Of A Circle by David Bowie
      Had to have a Bowie.....another weird song with sick and twisted sexual lyrics! Studio recording or live both work.
    • 9. All Right Now by Free
      What a fun song to sing to!
    • 8. The Working Man by Rush
      Excellent guitar; high vocals a plus.
    • 7. Tenderness by Steppenwolf
      I've seen Steppenwolf songs, but this semi-soft love song, speaks volumes about the tenderness I have experienced in my life. Steppenwolf GOT IT!!!!
    • 6. Behind Blue Eyes by The Who
      ALWAYS a FAVORITE, a long time before Limp Bizkit! Glad they honored this great song, in what I believe is to be a relatively underrated band, in spite of legal difficulties.
    • 5. The Writ by Black Sabbath
      Eerie entrance and interspersed spaces, with hard and simple, driving rhythm..."Are you Satan or are you man?"
    • 4. Stink Foot by Frank Zappa
      Frank is a great guitarist, and you can hear some of it here. Had to add just one more sick song!
    • 3. North Carolina Hard Core Ecstacy by Frank Zappa
      Rough song! Brutal when you hear the lyrics. Had to list some Zappa!
    • 2. If I Were A Carpenter by Bob Seger
      I fell in love with Bob Seger on this song, before he really became famous. My favorite rendition of this popular song. Did you know Robert Plant sang this song, as well as many others?
    • 1. Back In The Saddle by Aerosmith
      Haven't seen this one listed, yet! Great let-loose song!

    Rush's 2112 and others were great, Neil Young with Needle and the Damage Done, Van Halen's Running with the Devil, and on and on.........10 sections is not enough!
    By: Michael
    • 10. Neil Young by Old Man
      Powerful lyrics..... catchy tune.
    • 9. Sweet Home Alabama by Lynyrd Skynyrd
    • 8. American Pie by Don McLean
      Read what the lyrics really mean
    • 7. Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin
      Powerful, mysterious lyrics with possibly the best guitar solo of all time.
    • 6. All The Young Dudes by Mott The Hoople
      Don't ask!?!?!?
    • 5. Fire And Rain by James Taylor
      The story behind this song is interesting.
    • 4. Ready For Love by Bad Company
      This song was originally performed by Mott The Hoople.
    • 3. Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd
      This whole album is great.
    • 2. Foreplay/Longtime by Boston
      This song would have been so much better off without the Foreplay intro.
    • 1. More Than A Feeling by Boston
      Great lyrics, incredible structure and a remarkable guitar solo!!!

    I'm sure this list would be much different if I thought about it a little more!!! Others: Peter Frampton - Do You Feel Like We Do Nazereth - 1. Love Hurts 2. Hair Of The Dog

    • 6. Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen
      Well come on, Thunderbolts and lightning, very very frightening!
    • 5. Like A Rolling Stone by Bob Dylan
    • 4. Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin
      There's no need to call any more attention to this little miracle.
    • 3. Trampled Underfoot by Led Zeppelin
    • 2. Ballroom Blitz by Sweet
    • 1. My Generation by The Who
      "I hope I die before I get old"... who DOESN'T know those quotes?

    Oh man, I wish mainstream was almost as good as this.
