Since the Doors don't count (more a 60's band), I vote for the Stooges. But the question is hard to answer since the best rock bands weren't in America at this time. Never was a fan of the Eagles, Aerosmith, etc.

CCR for sure... sure they hit the scene in the late 60s but the 70s was THEIR time

CCR was great, but they were mostly a 60's band

Grand Funk was pretty damn tight too

there were so many great bands at that time its hard to pick just one. I will say though that everyone I knew had this particular album any you could hear this song on the radio just about everyday, almost 30 years later and it is still a great song.

   I'll give the nod to the Eagles also for a few reasons. Longevity, I like the music ( hard to take this out of the equation), and sound quality in concert regardless of the venue. Be it indoor sports arenas or outdoors, they and the sound crew, somehow managed to make it sound album quality or very close. I cannot say this about most bands I've seen over the years.

Queen.   




The amount of anthem/classic songs they made which are used in school events, sports events, movies, TV, etc is more than any other group i can think of.

I don`t know the answer to this question, but what I do know is that Grandpa used to keep old pepsi bottles in the wood shed which he would fill with water and then use an old phillips head to tap out childrens lullabys.

Grandpa had perfect pitch.  He attributed this to countless hours of bugle blowing, practicing for the Christmas parade each year.  I don`t recall how many octaves but he could hit all the high notes.

I order the big four:

Slayer, Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth. Never a big Megadeth fan, Metallica comes in behind Slayer because I feel rthe last few albums were meh.

I agree the Sabbath is the Kking

But for me - its like this

Ozzy
Slayer
Maiden
ACDC
Dio
Megadeth
Metallica
Thrax

Seen Slayer quite a few times and it's always hilarious to see them blow everybody else on the bill off the stage - and I don't go out of my way to listen to Slayer, either - but they are on another level in terms of quality of live show. 

Seeing Sabbath in April or thereabouts next year.  I'm a tiny bit skeptical given that whilst Ozzy seems to be able to sing in tune, he's sort of given up actually enunciating words so much.

I have seen Maiden but I don't get it.  Not a diss on them or anything, I just haven't really ever heard enough of their music to like it.  Enough people were digging it that my opinion of them shouldn't be considered.

Gunners would have been good in their prime, I've only seen Slash sans Axl and it was pretty decent.

Metallica played at a festival I was once at and it was probably the worst show I've ever been to in terms of deadshits :) - I didn't both watching them - went to the doof doof for something I cannot even remember.

Probably the biggest hard rock disappointment I've ever had was Robbeth Zombie - dude played a 45 minute set that included about an 8 minute guitar "solo" (noise) whilst he was off stage doing a costume change (in 45 minutes, remember) and even when he was on stage, he basically just danced around so much that he would only sing about half the lyrics to the song.  Awful.

Most hard rock and metal bands have singers who cannot reproduce what they do on albums, live.  It's probably the worst genre for that.  The human voice just isn't built for screaming and singing.  A lot of bands I have liked over the years have that problem.  Strangest case of that not being so is Static X, that guy can do what he does on an album, live - it's pretty comical.

Best hard rock/metal band of all time; based on what popularity, record sales, ticket sales?  There are too many factors such as age, musical influence, and personal opinion to even debate this topic.  Over the years, hard rock/metal bands have stood the test of time, sold millions of albums, and have created a solid fan base.  

In no particular order:

Metal:       Iron Maiden, Metallica, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Motorhead, Judas Priest (No Homo)

Hard Rock: AC/DC, Motley Crue, Van Halen, KISS, Guns N Roses, Def Leppard

Yup.  I saw them play 3 hours for a group of about 200 hundred once in Boston.  Stood right in the front, and they just ripped for hours and didn't give anytihng less since they were in a bar.

Metallica, as  cliche as it is, ruled from Kill 'em All to about half of the Black album.  They were epic, so I'll give them the nod.  It's a shame Lars became such a douchebag and Bob Rock took away all their edge.

And, just to state it, I think ACDC fucking sucks outside of two songs.

I guess if you have to choose an under-rated Zep album, for me, it would be a tie between Presence and Led Zeppelin III.

Presence is pretty out there, even by Zeppelin's standards. Still kicks it though.

And III is the album that sort of changed how Zeppelin cut their music, so it was kind of confusing to a lot of folks who thought they knew the band after I and II. And of course, it gets sandwiched between the monster II and IV albums, which are simply some of the best albums of all-time, easily.

If pressed, I go with Presence.

But saying Zeppelin had an under-rated album is like saying Wayne Gretzky had an under-rated season in the 80s.

Good post but III has become a very revered album with time and a lot of people (actually a lot outside th realm of rock) consider it to be Zeppelin's best. Page's solo on "Since I've been Loving You" is one of the greatest solos ever. Presence is under-rated no doubt: "Tea For One", "Achille's Last Stand", "Nobody's Fault But Mine" are amongst Zep's greatest songs. "Royal Orleans","For Your Life", "Hots On For Nowhere": how many bands can sound that good honestly?

But other than "Presence", I'd say "Houses Of The Holy" is their most under-rated album: "The Rain Song" and "No Quarter" are in my top 5 Zeppelin tunes. "The Ocean", "Dancing days": if your feet are still listening to these, go see a neuro-surgeon. How many rock bands could play something like "The Crunge"?

Zep was great for the 10 or so years they were a band. Pioneers of the huge drum sound on tape and other guitar and vocal recording trickery. Yes, they ripped off some blues songs but their versions had character and energy and they added some things like Indian flavored scales and mystical lyrics. Lots of anthemic tunes but no gas left in the tank by '80. Page's band The Firm and Plant's 80s solo stuff is pretty good but none of it would have worked being called Zep. Masters of marketing for not getting back together. Big Zep fan but tired of hearing Whole Lotta Love and the other more common songs on the radio....just burnt out on them.



Rush? Now at it over 40 years, can still play the old prog stuff and are still making good music. Huge body of work. More original musicianship, more nuanced and intricate playing style and it can't be said enough that their lyrical content is about 30 IQ points higher than Zep lyrics. Are they better as far as being legend? Nope.

I can guarantee you that they could play every Zep song though...Zep couldn't play 90% of Rush tunes...

If the two bands were bodybuilders, Zep would be Arnold and Rush would be Ferrigno, except that I would actually pay $20 to see Rush.

Those two bands can't be compared.


You would be better of comparing Ratt to Dokken


Or Black Sabbath to Blue Oyster Cult


Or Heart to Pat Benatar


Led Zeppelin really cannot be compared to any other bands. Nor can the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix or Van Halen.



Yes, music and your preferences are subjective, but let's stick to reality here.


Some of these bands are/were at a level that could not be reached. Rush was not one of them. Led Zeppelin was.


Now, if you wanted to compare guitarists you might compare Jimmy Page to the guitarist from Ten Years after.


Randy Rhoades to Yngwie Malmsteen? Not so much, maybe Yngwie to Jason Becker.


Jeff Beck to Stevie Ray Vaughn... maybe.


How about Iron Maiden to the Scorpions?


See a pattern here?

Title: Re: .Led Zeppelin vs Rush.
Post by: dyslexic on August 22, 2013, 08:32:02 AM
Zep was great for the 10 or so years they were a band. Pioneers of the huge drum sound on tape and other guitar and vocal recording trickery. Yes, they ripped off some blues songs but their versions had character and energy and they added some things like Indian flavored scales and mystical lyrics. Lots of anthemic tunes but no gas left in the tank by '80. Page's band The Firm and Plant's 80s solo stuff is pretty good but none of it would have worked being called Zep. Masters of marketing for not getting back together. Big Zep fan but tired of hearing Whole Lotta Love and the other more common songs on the radio....just burnt out on them.



Rush? Now at it over 40 years, can still play the old prog stuff and are still making good music. Huge body of work. More original musicianship, more nuanced and intricate playing style and it can't be said enough that their lyrical content is about 30 IQ points higher than Zep lyrics. Are they better as far as being legend? Nope.

I can guarantee you that they could play every Zep song though...Zep couldn't play 90% of Rush tunes...

Pretty good stuff. Jimmy did add the Harmonic minor scale (and variations therof) when nobody else (except maybe Ritchie Blackmoree) had even attempted to listen or learn something less traditional. The Immigrant Song/ "Hammer of the Gods" live displays some of Jimmy's real talent.

Also, Jimmy stole the Theramin from a band you would never guess. Many bands followed suit, but Jimmy made its use mystical.

I would not go as far as to say that Zep could not play Rush tunes. I would just simply say that Zep would have absolutely no interest in even listening to Rush stuff. Two birds of a different feather.

It takes a certain kind of fan to appreciate Rush, and I haven't quite figured that one out yet. I've been playing guitar for over 40 years and I play everything under the sun. This means every type of music, not just rock, and every type of scale or mode that my ear can conceive.

Here's the thing, and I don't mean it in a bad way: I hate Rush, and I always have.

I believe than any truly accomplished musician can play anything he/she hears. If not, that would be like saying an ALMS Corvette race car driver couldn't drive a NASCAR.

Can you even imagine Zep playing Rush? It makes no sense. Actually, to me it makes less sense than ANY other band playing ANYONE else's shit.

Weird, huh?

The Theramin has quite a history. Pink Floyd used it also, but Jimmy used it like noone else could ever imagine. He made you believe that the  light and sound were eminating from his control and no other. Smart guy and way ahead of his time. Very creative.

Now we use things like the Fernandes Sustainer and such.

Tommy Ramone, last of the Ramones, dies

Tommy Ramone, a co-founder of the seminal punk band the Ramones and the last surviving member of the original group, has died, a business associate said Saturday.

Dave Frey, who works for Ramones Productions and Silent Partner Management, confirmed that Ramone died on Friday. Frey didn't have additional details. Ramone was 65.

Tommy Ramone, a drummer, co-founded the Ramones in 1974 in New York along with singer Joey Ramone, bassist Dee Dee Ramone and guitarist Johnny Ramone. All four band members had different last names, but took the common name Ramone.

The band influenced a generation of rockers, and their hit songs "I Wanna Be Sedated," and "Blitzkrieg Bop," among others, earned them an induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.

Clad in leather jackets and long black mops of hair, the group of motley misfits started out in legendary New York clubs like CBGB and Max's Kansas City, where they blasted their rapid-fire songs.

Since its debut album in 1976, the band struggled for commercial success, but they left a formidable imprint on the rock genre. Though they never had a Top 40 song, the Ramones influenced scores of followers, including bands such as Green Day and Nirvana.

Even Bruce Springsteen was moved. After seeing the Ramones in Asbury Park, New Jersey, Springsteen wrote "Hungry Heart" for the band. His manager, however, swayed him to keep the song for himself and it became a hit single.

The Ramones' best-known songs reflected their twisted teen years in Queens: "Beat on the Brat," ''Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue," ''Teenage Lobotomy," ''Sheena Is a Punk Rocker."

The Ramones disbanded in 1996 after a tour that followed their final studio album, "Adios Amigos." A live farewell tour album, "We're Outta Here!", was released in 1997.

Johnny Ramone, whose birth name was John Cummings, died in 2004 of prostate cancer. Joey Ramone, whose real name is Jeff Hyman, died in 2001 of lymphatic cancer. Dee Dee Ramone, whose real name is Douglas Colvin, died from a drug overdose in 2002. Tommy Ramone was born Erdelyi Tamas in Budapest, Hungary.
