    Led Zeppelin I, II, III, Untitled, Houses, Physical, Presence

    That's the greatest 7 album run of any band. Ever.
    no in through?

    I like In Through..., but I don't think it stands up against the best of the Stones or Beatles, whereas those first seven are pretty flawless.

    3 of 7 songs are up there in the catalog  though imo.

    fool in the rain ranks pretty high for me. just a gorgeous solo
    In the Evening, Fool in the Rain and All My Love are superb, I'm Gonna Crawl just behind.

    The first music I ever heard / bought was  from the Beatles. The White Album is nothing short of Great.
    But Led Zeppelin has many more songs I don’t switch channels from when they come up on the radio. My true test

    Uh, hello? It's obviously Live and Let Die by Paul McCartney and Wings ;)

    Edit: I'd actually go with Goldfinger. Cornell's offering for Casino Royale is my modern day choice.

    That’s a good idea for a poll (or polls, as there are 25 songs). There’s a pretty solid Top 5 or 6, the rest would be straightforward picks.

    Dear Beatles Fanatics,

    Your days of everyone bowing to "the best band ever" is dying, day by day.
    Week by week.

    Signed, 
    Zep Fanatics.
    I love Zep and as much as the next guy, but the outrageous, unabashed plagiarism has to disqualify them from any "best band ever" conversation. I can go through them all, but just based on Dazed and Confused and The Lemon Song, I don't know how they lived with saying "Yep, we wrote these songs."

    I know, but then there's always what the Beatles did to Clarence Walker to consider as well.

    I'll take Zep's studio catalogue over The Beatles, but that's debatable.

    HOWEVER. Let's look at live performances. Led Zeppelin revolutionized concerts. Mick Jagger said something like "we used to play for 45 minutes then Zep happened and everything changed".

    Beatles? That oh so famous Shea Stadium show? Here's the setlist - 12 2-minute songs. And after 1966 they stopped touring altogether.

    https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/the-beatles/1965/shea-stadium-queens-ny-2bd7b08e.html

    Here's a song, performed at Earls Court - 33 minutes of insanely awesome rock & roll: 

    Long Live Zep.

    These are really good points.  Zep live was out of this world.  Beatles were so original and unique. I think I said earlier that i feel like the are from two different universes.
