    I'd have to go with Nirvana, overall, they hit it huge when I was 10/11 years old, and my brother being about 20, forced his music on me, and I've been digging in since. As of late though, its been some Old Crow Medicine Show, bluegrass has been killing it for me lately.

    All time favorite? rage against the machine.

    There are so many others though. My favorite song of all time is probably comfortably numb.

    Too many to list just one.

    Everything from Alabama to Zeppelin. With Megadeth, Queensryche and Stevie Ray Vaughn in between.

    If I had to go with just one, it would be AC/DC...Or Maybe Alan Parsons...Or maybe the Eagles.

    I don't know. :tongue:

    For those of you who think/put Led Zeppelin I heard yesterday on a radio program all the blues singers they did not credit for their work. I had no clue. I am sure it has been debated on here before. Anyway, with a little help from Google:

    ** ? ""Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" - A folk song by Anne Bredon, this was originally credited as "traditional, arranged by Jimmy Page," then "words and music by Jimmy Page," and then, following legal action, "Bredon/Page/Plant."

    ? "Black Mountain Side" - uncredited version of a traditional folk tune previously recorded by Bert Jansch.

    ? "Bring It On Home" - the first section is an uncredited cover of the Willie Dixon tune (as performed by the imposter Sonny Boy Williamson).

    ? "Communication Breakdown" - apparently derived from Eddie Cochran's "Nervous Breakdown."

    ? "Custard Pie" - uncredited cover of Bukka White's "Shake 'Em On Down," with lyrics from Sleepy John Estes's "Drop Down Daddy."

    ? "Dazed And Confused" - uncredited cover of the Jake Holmes song (see The Above Ground Sound Of Jake Holmes). Blogovich sez: This is the one to which Jeff, who commented on the blog, refers.

    ? "Hats Off To (Roy) Harper" - uncredited version of Bukka White's "Shake 'Em On Down."

    ? "How Many More Times" - Part one is an uncredited cover of the Howlin' Wolf song (available on numerous compilations). Part two is an uncredited cover of Albert King's "The Hunter."

    ? "In My Time Of Dying" - uncredited cover of the traditional song (as heard on Bob Dylan's debut).

    ? "The Lemon Song" - uncredited cover of Howlin' Wolf's "Killing Floor" - Wolf's publisher sued Zeppelin in the early 70's and settled out of court.

    ? "Moby Dick" - written and first recorded by Sleepy John Estes under the title "The Girl I Love," and later covered by Bobby Parker.

    ? "Nobody's Fault But Mine" - uncredited cover of the Blind Willie Johnson blues.

    ? "Since I've Been Lovin' You" - lyrics are the same as Moby Grape's "Never," though the music isn't similar.

    ? "Stairway To Heaven" - the main guitar line is apparently from "Taurus" by Spirit. Blogovich sez: Not ?apparently?. This one is startling. Taurus, by Spirit (great band, pick up a compilation at least, highly recommended), is an instrumental of three minutes' duration; Zep copied the entire song and used it as the intro to Stairway. Give it a listen. But sit down first. Ridiculous.

    ? "White Summer" - uncredited cover of Davey Graham's "She Moved Through The Fair."

    ? " Whole Lotta Love" - lyrics are from the Willie Dixon blues "You Need Love."

    ? Here?s one not from the site but from Blogovich: Give ?Sail Away? by Deep Purple (1974 Burn album with David Coverdale on lead vocals) a listen and tell me Zep?s Trampled Underfoot from Physical Graffiti (1975) isn?t the same borrowed-from-Ritchie Blackmore riff, just speeded up. And Zep singer Robert Plant had the gall, at the height of the later Whitesnake?s admittedly Zep-derivative success, to call Coverdale ?David Coverversion?? Amazing arrogance and the pot calling the kettle black crap. Further, Plant?s got the gall to write forwards to blues books and such, while his band so overtly ripped off those same artists. Amazing arrogance, Percy.

    Zep defenders say old blues artists did the same thing with tunes, borrowing, adjusting, and so on. And that is in some measure arguably true. But nobody ever did it to Zep's extent. Not even close. Perhaps they could have given just a wee bit of credit where it was due?

    That?s why, despite the hours of enjoyment (and maybe that?s enough for some people and that?s OK) Zep provided, they?ll always be a few cuts below the all-time greats in my estimation. **

    I am sure most, if not all bands, on an all-time best list had some assistance from their predecessors, but dang.

    Agreed. Seeing them tomorrow and Friday night. They're playing The Soft Bulletin in its entirety.
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore
