Stairway to Heaven or November Rain? Which is better?

Stairway to Heaven 36 76.60%
 
November Rain 11 23.40%
 
Total:47

Which is the superior epic rock song?

Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven or Guns 'n Roses' November's Rain?

I had this debate with a fellow co-worker and we asked around all over work to see which would get more votes for fun. Turned out it was a tie haha.

So what do you guys think? Honestly, Led Zeppelin may get a lot of respect for the great rock band they were but I gotta say there isn't much anything out there as epic as November Rain. The whole composition and flow and the way it builds up is just both haunting and powerful. Not to mention, the video enhances its impact as well. SO memorable. I think it's one of the greatest rock songs of all-time, to be honest. One of the greatest songs. Period. As for Stairway? I'll be honest. I have a lot of respect for it but that's it. I honestly don't understand the praise the song gets. I was never a fan of Led Zeppelin, either but I do understand why this song is considered "timeless." It's definitely good but it just doesn't resonate with me and I never feel like listening to it. But when it's on, I wouldn't turn it off or something, you know? Best I can describe it.

Thoughts?

Trust me, it was an accident lol. I forgot to include the poll option in the first one haha.

So, just use this one and I'll delete the other one. Sorry for the inconvenience, guys.

Though I also love November Rain.

You can make a poll on a thread after posting it, silly you! (and well, as you see, you can't delete threads.)

Edit: it's also in the wrong forum. God damn it Streak!

Edit²: anyways, I guess I'll just paste my post from the other thread before going to sleep. Whichever thread remains active, my post shall be on!

As long as I have been here, I hardly ever create threads and not familiar with that hehe. Ughh, my bad! Hopefully a moderator can just close it or lock it up.

Interesting sequel to the Stairway to Heaven vs. Highway to Hell thread. (man I wish the forum search feature actually worked)

November Rain is pretty good, but Stairway to Heaven is Stairway to Heaven. I was actually listening to it right before you made this thread, and it's not like I hear it too often (probably once a year at most), so, yeah. Funny how things go sometimes, huh?



Both overrated,



Every year around Christmas a local rock station does a top 1000 rock songs of all time and every year Stairway wins with November fluctuating in the top ten. So I’ve been indoctrinated since childhood with Stairway as the top rock song.
