The Led Zeppelin List

This article ranking all of Led Zeppelin’s songs from worst to best has gotten a lot of attention Perhaps you’ve seen it. It’s not a bad article (http://www.vulture.com/2015/07/all-74-led-zeppelin-songs-ranked.html?_ga=1.193424622.2106476627.1437092159).

I love Led Zeppelin, but even more important, I love lists! Therefore I had to take the time to compile my own ranking of their songs. Keeping with the criteria of the article I excluded Coda, and all subsequent releases (including the limited amount of unreleased tracks that have popped up since their breakup in 1980.

First and foremost, Led Zeppelin were an album band. They didn’t edit their songs, they didn’t release singles for pop radio. Therefore a quick ranking of their albums (minus Coda) would be an appropriate beginning.
