    Which is the better rock band AC/DC or Led Zeppelin?

    Can some mod put a poll in for me?

    I'm no mod but I'll weigh in.

    I love both bands, but I'm inclined to say Zeppelin because their musical range was so much greater than AC/DC.

    If this makes sense, I feel like Zeppelin could have done what AC/DC did. But AC/DC never could have written some of the stuff Zeppelin did.

    You could argue AC/DC was more fun, but better? No way.

    AC/DC. "You shook me all night long" is on my short list of songs very special to me. There's a long boring story that involves me being the only American in a Korean bar full of Filipino hookers while this song played... but that's all I will share.

    Yeah I'm offended that people would even think to make this a poll.

    I started this thread because someone in the Mayberry try to make case for AC/DC being greatest rock n roll band ever. I wrote that Led Zeppelin who are pretty close contemporaries can make that claim.

    I think we should go fing the guy who started that thread and bring here.

    We can (and should) goof on FITR, but the fact is AC/DC never even tried to cut a calypso track..

    We should probably sterilize him while we’re at it.

    The Beatles vs. The Turtles?
