Could some moderator move this to the music section of the forums? Since there is one, might as well, right?

Done 

Sorry guys!

And as expected, Stairway is winning. Ah well, I didn't grow up on Zepp so I just don't really get their music. I know it doesn't suck for sure it's just not my thing I guess. It's one of those things where I try to get into it but I just can't. Also, for me, Axl has one of the greatest voices in rock so it enhances already the sounds that I prefer in GnR's music. 

Also, out of the 70's bands Zepp is my LEAST fav. I absolutely LOVE The Doors, Pink Floyd and The Beatles and stuff like that. And here's the weird thing. I don't hate Zepp, I just don't listen to them unless I hear it somewhere. And when I do, I don't get annoyed by it I'm just not like OMG it's ZEPP playing like I do with some of the other bands. I'm weird.

November Rain never got the hype behind Stairways to Heaven if I really want to listen to a Led Zepplin song I rather would listen to Whole Lotta Love, Kashmir, Immigrant Song or Moby Dick.

Dude. The 2000s were dramatically terrible.

There is some good rock in the 2000's. Alter Bridge, Seether, Three Days Grace, Staind, Breaking Benjamin, Chevelle, Tantric, etc. I certainly can't defend what he's saying about older music though. The 90's had plenty of great Rock; The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Offspring, Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Tool, Days of the New, Creed, etc. And of course the earlier decades have some great Rock. 

Eh, Staind is decent. My stepfather liked Alter Bridge for a while but I never did. You forgot about the best ones from the 2000s though; Linkin Park and Muse, but they don’t save the 2000s being overal the worst decade in general since the ‘50s imo, by far.



To me this is kind of like asking, "Which game is better Shovel Knight or Super Mario Bros 3?"  Shovel Knight is a tribute to classic gaming, while Mario 3 actually is one of the best games from classic gaming.  The tribute is good but not as good as the original thing.

This is not meant as a disrespect to Guns N Roses.  In the late 80's Rock had become incredibly stale with mostly just hair metal bands, and GNR got Rock back to its roots which was sorely needed at the time.  But Led Zeppelin and Stairway to Heaven represent the best of those roots.  (Clearly Stairway is my pick.)




Also if I really wanted to listen to a long song by Guns and Roses I would pick Paradise City over November Rain. Other long rock songs I would rather listen to over the two in the poll are Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, Holiday by Scorpions, Hey Jude by The Beatles, Eminence Front or Baba O'riley by The Who, Somebody Up There Likes Me by David Bowie just to mention a few.

I mainly only like Linkin Park's first 2 albums, after that they sold out and became Pop Rock because they got some crazy idea that they wouldn't be able to stay relevant if they kept making Nu Metal/Alternative Metal. I never listed to much Muse, they never got any airplay on my local rock stations, but I do like Knights of Cydonia because it was in Guitar Hero, would never have discovered it otherwise since my local rock station never played Muse. 



I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that neither of these is the best song by either band. I personally prefer Whole Lotta Love from Led Zepplin and Estranged from GnR.

Immigrant Song and Sweet Child o' Mine are also better songs than Stairway to Heaven and November Rain *shrugs*



Estranged... greatest song ever written.



Damn this shouldn't even be a debate.. November Rain? Everything on Appetite for Destruction is better than that cheesy pop-song.

Why does everyone forget Weezer when looking back at 90’s rock?  The Blue Album is one of the best albums of the decade.
