What does 'greatest' even mean in this context? Commercial successfulness? Influence on future bands? How good their music is (which would of course be 100% subjective opinion)?

It's a pretty loose term.

It's not a superlative I would use when describing LZ but I can understand getting really swept up in their music.

Lol that's one of my favourite articles. Half of the items are basically "Led Zeppelin is the greatest because they're famous and rich as ****."

The credibility of the whole thing is called into question by Kiss being on one of the lists. Plus, if you ask any large group of people the same question, the common denominators are going to be a bunch of famous artists.
