well everyone is entitled to their own opinion but I like them
2019-02-19 03:09
Them being overrated doesn't detract from the fact that they are really good.

true. Yeah I think the same about the Beatles, theyre a good band but by no means the Gods that people make them out to be.

Not overrated but overhyped Their best songs are just hyped up way to much and nobody gives a shit about their lesser known stuff
2019-02-19 03:32
Difference of overrated and overhyped AFTER the song has been released?
2019-02-19 03:33
Used the wrong term for it. Im tired as shit. I meant more like all the excitement of their music gets way too concentrated on the same few songs
2019-02-19 03:39
I think Led Zeppelin was a lot about their live performance. Honestly most of their songs are not that amazing, but based on videos their live performances were quite awesome.

Bohemian is a more inventive and creative song. Most people who don't know music just think that anything by led Zeppelin is automatically the best
2019-02-19 03:24

fair enough. I like both songs but I think the actual opera part of Bohemian Rhapsody feels gimmicky. the piano main part of the song + the guitar solo is amazing though

I can understand someone who thinks the operatic section to be gimmicky but for me it just gives it more personality

i mean, have you heard led zeppelin? they sound fcking amazing to me You can not like their music but you cant deny they were a great band, just like queen

Woah Woah Woah I did not deny they are a great band. Read my dude
2019-02-19 03:31
i read your comment mah man you said that people think that anything led zeppelin does is automatically better than other bands, which is true for most other bands, cause most other bands are not on the same level as Led Zeppelin, but Queen is, therefore it is understandable that people think either of the songs listed by OP is better

My only problem is people that say Zeppelin is "the best" because I don't think any band can be considered the best band that makes the best songs
2019-02-19 03:47
I agree with you about the songs, as i mentioned earlier but i think that you can pick a favorite band and consider it to be the best of all time, and imo it is led zeppelin because it suits my taste Not because of the name of the band and the weight it carries but because i took the time and listened to all of their work, literally heard all of their songs and there are only 2 or 3 that i do not like. They deserve all the praise they get because their work is unique and inspire bands to this day, just like queen, pink floyd, the who, the beatles and so on All of that is just my opinion, which is worthless :)

The fact that you pointed out that it was your own opinion makes everything you said about Zeppelin perfectly fine and I respect the hell outta that. To me, pink Floyd is the best band ever but that doesn't mean my opinion is undisputed fact.
2019-02-19 05:00
absolutely man, pink floyd is amazing, a close second on my top bands list, the only reason i rank led zeppelin higher is because im not always on the mood for some pink floyd songs like their earlier work but im always in the mood for led :)

Imo Stairway to Heaven > Bohemian Rhapsody but Queen > Led Zeppelin
2019-02-19 03:39
Stairway is s lot better, at least for me. Bohemian is just a mess of different pieces. From a ballad to a vocal quartet peaking with the hard rock. Stairway is progressive with an amazing solo in live versions. Easily here.
2019-02-19 03:39
I'm a huge fan of progressive music, but I agree that Bohemian Rhapsody lacks a bit of cohesion. It's still a great track. I prefer it over the studio version of Stairway to Heaven because the studio version lacks energy, but live versions of StH are awesome and I like those better than Bohemian Rhapsody.
2019-02-19 03:54
Good good. I'm not a fan of Queen in general. Not one song I'd like that much but I'm objective here. The song could catch ears of millions and it did but it will get boring and repetitive very soon. Standard structure works better.
2019-02-19 04:53
I think that the problem for me with Bohemian Rhapsody is that it's actually too short. I love many epic songs with multiple very different parts, best example being my all time favourite track Supper's Ready by Genesis, but that song's over twenty minutes long and has plenty of space to meander around. Meanwhile Bohemian Rhapsody is just over 6 minutes and it still has four distinct parts. Every part to me ends up seeming a little hectic (although maybe that's the point?) and the whole thing just a little confusing (again, might be intended). But as I said, I still like the track, I just think it could have been even better.
2019-02-19 12:22
6 minutes is too short? Ooh, guy! It's considered very long for pop standards and Queen is exactly the pop band. The song is just a vanguard of different approaches, I don't like it personally but objectively a timeless track.
2019-02-19 12:31
Well the song already doesn't fit pop standards so why not go all in and make it even longer? But that's just my opinion and I know countless people love the song just as it is.
2019-02-19 14:08
That's a good thought. You can go all the way through for the art's sake but if you consider being influential and succesful, you must stick to the rules, they're always there no matter what you do.
2019-02-19 14:37
I guess it's good that they made the song the way it is now. After all, it's a very popular song, and I think it's good that it's exposing people to music that is not just the traditional ABABCBB structure. If it were longer it might not be as popular. Personally I would still enjoy a more lengthy Bohemian Rhapsody, but you can't please everyone.
2019-02-19 16:13
The most infamous and classic structure would be AABA(BA). If we're talking about popular music but I agree that it should be the way it is, it became an iconic tune.
2019-02-19 16:33
The one I mentioned is also a common structure. For me it's very annoying knowing how the song will progress even before hearing it all.

Pretty close. 68 votes for Bohemian Rhapsody agaisnt 65. Personally, Bohemian Rhapsody was a far bigger song.

Stairway to heaven is better imo. The long progression makes it beautiful to me. You feel it's coming Bohemian rhapsody feels like the progression is too forced because of the massively changing genres

Stairways for me. BR is great, but a bit too much for me.
2019-02-24 13:52
Stairways to heaven, because of the guitar solo in which drum and guitar are in sync. BR is also a great song but seems a little clumsy to me.
