Best Rock Track of all time

Post by grogg on Fri Apr 06, 2012 7:13 pm

Zep IV - Just listened to it and for once didnt skip Stairway. I know everyone is sick of hearing copies but listening to it again reminded me how awesome the original was.

However the best rock track of all time is "Black Dog", discuss...

Funny, isn't it.... I don't rate "Presence" at all; I prefer "In through the out door" after the 1st 4 but BEST rock song?? I don't think so....

I know it's a bit trite nowadays but "Smoke on the water" has got to be the No 1 ROCK song, eh!! As a purely personal choice, I also like Great Whites take on "Once bitten, twice shy"....

In Through the Out Door was the first Zepplin album I ever bought.

Ended up with sleeve perspective #5 and man do I wish I still had it... Sad

Can't stand led zep. Bunch of over-rated, talentless potheads. And come on, how can Jimmy Page's sound be so terrible?! They have managed to gather some sort of "Mozart effect", that is to be blindly admired despite the poor quality of the music.

However, I will go your way and grant that zep do have a few good ones, such as d'yer maker.

If we stay in the field of 70s early hard rock, I think Scorpions' pictured life or in trance are complete examples of rock'n'roll greatness.

It is true also that deep purple knew how to come up with a good rocker; one of my favorites is highway star. Can't go wrong with the Lord/Blackmore combo and they were capable of moving away from a blues-based approach which led zep never really managed.

Not in complete agreement there Sergeant, but our friend Beavis is apparently too Lazy No to even find the best cut from what is in my opinion one of the top 5 seminal albums in all of rock.

Era

That is why I don't comment on music that isn't in my era. I'm sure there is some music fans of Duane Eddy, Elvis etc. that argue their point. For me it's Ride the Lightning specifically Fade to Black(I can remember the first time I heard it). Once again that's in my opinion. :alien: :alien:

Thanks for calling it lazy Razz . I like to be provocative on these matters as everybody has his own opinion on music and there is not much point engaging in a developed argument on the question. However, led zep doesn't get much play in my home but maybe one day I will really get hooked, never say never.

Yep, but I love the constant timing shift of Black Dog.

I could have written this myself, I'm in 100% agreement.

Well, except for the Deep Purple part...I don't have much knowledge of them. But 100% agreement about the Scorpions. One of the best days of my life was when I encountered and decided to buy the "Best of Scorpions" in a bargain bin, not realizing it wasn't a bit like the "Rock you Like a Hurricane" stuff, and the better for it.

As much as I dislike Zep, I like nearly every Zep imitator far better than Zep themselves.

I like Kingdom Come.
I like the band Bonham's "Wait for You".
I heard that someone once compared Heart to Zep; Yep, I like Heart quite a bit.
And Darrell Mansfield's Christian remakes of Zep kick holy butt. Better than the original in my opinion. As crazy as that sounds.

Ah I am not alone cheers .

Can't quite remember how I discovered those early Scorpions. Either through Uli Jon Roth's solo stuff, or after having bought the vynils of the Tokyo tapes which are just mind-blowingly awesome.

Didn't know Heart covered Zep. I only really know their "later" romantic/love power ballads about tall dark strangers and vulnerable sex-deprived women.

Heart didn't cover Zep. But I had heard that some people said they were Zep imitators. Now, what the difference is between borrowing some stylistic elements and being outright imitators, I can't really tell you. I always thought they were more unique...Kingdom Come were imitators.
