Huffington Post recently presented a list of the the Top Ten bands that shook the world. Included in the list, in no particular order other than alphabetical, is The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Doors, Greatful Dead, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, U2 and The Who.

Speaking on Led Zeppelin, writer Jeff Pollack said: "Plant, Page, Jones, and arguably the best rock drummer of all time, John Bonham, exploded on the scene with probably the best debut album ever, with 'Good Times Bad Times,' 'Dazed and Confused,' 'Babe I'm Going to Leave You'... a musical shot across the bow to ignore them at your own peril.

Zeppelin toured endlessly and became one of the best live bands ever with the musicians improvising their songs and the shows lasting more than four hours.

Led Zeppelin's 'Stairway to Heaven,' became one of the most popular rock songs and guitar solos of all time (truly "a hundred year song"), and the band attained legendary status.

Never loved by the critics, Led Zeppelin was always underestimated in their originality as well their ability to embrace different musical forms and styles. Today they are now widely seen as one of the most important bands of all time."
