It's hard to call Pink Floyd "rock". It's not that they aren't, but it's not exactly as if they are, eather. I'd chuck them in Alternative, or if it were recognised, Progressive. And it's bands like Floyd, where I whole heartedly agreed with boo boo in lobbying for that Progressive forum.

To truly embody rock, I'm going to say AC/DC. Sure a lot of it's generic, but the fact that they kicked arse song after song, album after album, while being a through and through rock band is in my mind the pinacle of rock music. It's just outright rock, and it's bloody good rock too.
Well, if we are talking about simply hard rock bands then i would go with Led Zeppelin.

you won't get any riot from me for choosing them. Led Zeppelin may have been one or the first band to start Metal. Then turned to Classic rock. but they were the first rock metal group and they were amazing. Led Zeppelin maybe had one of the most talented bands ever known. Jimmy Page on guitar, he is one of the best guitar players of all time... and then John Bonham on drums again he was one of the best of all time, he really set the stage for drummers to be in future bands.. Then of course Robert Plant one of the most amazing singers. I know maybe i'm leaving out John Paul Jones but as good as Jones was he doesn't compare and go's far unnoticed as rest of the band. but this band even if some of there writings were copies of greater songs before them. they still did a amazing job and really changed music to be something amazing.

don't worry i for myself.

Black Sabbath and the Jimi Hendrix Experience contributed much more to metal than Led Zeppelin. They weren't a bad band at all, but they're tremendously overpraised.

AC/DC are the undisputed kings of crude, rude, stripped-down rock and roll.

Well Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin were two different types of sounds, and did come out around the same time. They might be overpraised but you look at many great bands nowa days and many will say that led Zeppeling changed the face of music. To me led Zeppelin might be up there with your so called 'king' of rock n' roll, and with the beatles, rolling stones, etc.. all of those great bands there all realyl different but had the most amazing impacts on music and how its changed. But Zeppelin even if they dn't seem so Metal... and seem more just normal Rock music, back in the ay they were in fact pure Metal in the begining..

I think Black Sabbath get way too much praise for starting metal, i think they are the most important, but too many people say it like they were the only band pushing for a harder heavier sound at the time, there were other bands who were also pushing hard rock to its harder limits, Blue Cheer and King Crimson were making loud over the top music during that same era, they dont get as much praise because they were no where near as popular, and because they didnt define the metal image quite like Sabbath did, and there were bands like The Yardbirds, The Who and The Jimi Hendrix Experience who pre-dated Sabbath with innovative music that was more intense, agressive and loud than anything else that was recorded at that time, Sabbath simply took that and made it even louder and more intense and more agressive, thus taking it to the next level, Ozzys singing and Iommi, Butler and Ward as a ensemble gave the band a special edge, but i think its ridiculous when people say they were the ONLY pioneer of metal, and the only influence that matters, several other hard rock bands had a good deal of influence on later metal bands, including Uriah Heep, Blue Oyster Cult, Deep Purple, Queen, AC/DC, Alice Cooper, KISS, Aerosmith, Rush and even Jethro Tull.

I agree with Led Zeppelin being a great band. Even if somebody doesnt like early metal, there's always like Stairway to Heaven to bring everyone together. Its a classic. And as far as metal contribution, Black Sabbath and Zeppelin are equal in my eyes.

Stairway is great...But i dont think its THAT much better than all the other great Zeppelin songs, theres just too many to count.


There arent many Zeppelin songs that i dont like, save Boogie With Stu and most of the songs on In Through The Out Door.
