I think The Beatles remain kind of undisputed as the most significant rock band in history.
But I think Led Zeppelin has had a more prominent influence stylistically on rock music and metal as a whole.

Those riffy tentacles seem to seap into almost every sub-genre in one way or another. Obviously there were other bands riding the same wave back then but I'm having a hard time thinking of anyone that pushed the boundaries of that style further than Zeppelin, they demonstrated so much range across each album. The more ground you cover, the more musicians you influence.

I love you. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Wait. What?
