Stairway to Heaven, Immigrant Song, Ramble On, Kashmir, Whole Lotta Love, D’yer Mak’er, Fool in the Rain. These are all rock classics, how can you not consider Led Zeppelin one of the greatest of all time?

By accepting the fact that there is no objective standard for quality in art. I really cannot stand to hear Whole Lotta Love, but I accept that you have a somewhat different musical esthetic than I do. You probably have never heard Ethnicolor I (by Jean-Michel Jarre), and I admit it is not rock'n'roll by any sane definition of the term, but I think it is simply wonderful. As I say, you've probably never heard it, but I suspect you might not even call it music. More like "what the hell is THAT?" It fits my esthetic, and it probably misses yours. (If you want to hear it, just to experience it, listen to the full 12 minute version from Zoolook, not the abridged version on his greatest hits.)

How can Luddites even be here? They are even more technologically abhorrent than the Amish.

Black Sabbath were awesome, they basically invented a new form of music, did LZ do that? Nope.

What great song have the Stones had in the last 40 years?

Black Sabbath...QFT!

It's Only Rock N' Roll!

Last 30 years, I have to agree with you, though they had some very good (though not quite great) songs in those years.

Exactly. They should have split up sometime in the 70s. They’re their own tributes act, tribute act now.

A Down and Dusky Blonde wrote:Black Sabbath...QFT!

Yep. They were awesome. The non Ozzy stuff just doesn’t cut it with me, but they had ten or so great years, even their last album just before they quit was good.

Welcome to the region Supak, Novistova, Deniria

While settling in, please accept a complimentary marsupial:

*rolls out a heavy wooden barrel, popping off the lid with a crowbar, revealing it to be teeming with possums and shrews and wombats and thylacines and Tasmanian devils and bandicoots and koala and wallaby*

If you are in any way dissatisfied with your complimentary marsupial, you may return it to the crocodile pit, where the residents handle all returns and suggestions.

The Dawn of Metal - Sound Opinions
https://www.soundopinions.org/show/144

That's a music/culture/history show I used to listen to quite frequently, they discuss current music but also do these long "features" that explore larger topics, such as this history of heavy metal. Even if you don't agree with all of their conclusions, it's really fun to listen to them.

They place the earliest fumbling origins with Lemmy, before he was in Motorhead, with a band called Hawkwind that I knew nothing about, and a song called "Silver Machine." And give credit to Zeppelin's "Dazed and Confused," and especially the bass and drums, for creating the right kind of atmosphere that actual metal could grow within. But they freely admit that everyone can have their own choice. And they single out Black Sabbath as the true first band that can be indisputably called "metal," and credit them with birthing a new genre.

I remember Lemmy being interviewed about it back in the 90s. There was a great show the BBC put out during that era called "Rock Family Trees." I recommend tracking down the series to anyone with an interest in music. In the interview he said the band fired him because of that song as it was their biggest hit and he happened to sing it, shortly after that he started Motorhead.

I think The Beatles can be included as metal pioneers, thanks to this ditty - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uk1hCSA89fc

I have a friend who was really into Hawkwind. I didn't get it. With one exception. They have a song called "Psi Power", about a (un)fortunate individual with involuntary extrasensory powers. That song absolutely blew me away. One of the best science-fiction songs ever written (and making a lot more sense than Jefferson Starship's "Hyperdrive"). I bought a Hawkwind compilation (they had lots of 'em) to own that song, and I have no idea what else might be on it. I think Silver Machine was, but it made no impression on me, for good or ill.
