Floyd was creative and original and time has taught us that Zeppelin was not very creative and original. I also prefer the music lyrics and guitars but that is all subjective so to keep it real. Floyds work was always Floyds work. Zeppelin's work caused them to be sued later in their career and ultimately lost writing credits and such for many of their big tunes.
Floyd have better epic songs...but Led Zepp can sure rock out.... tie... or perhaps slighty Floyd has the upper hand.
U2: 6/28 @ United Center
Lollapalooza: 8/1 @ Grant Park
I don't ordinarily have any difficulty voting in polls like this, but I think both these bands are amazing. Both kicked off with some of their best work, had good runs of several incredible albums in a row, then disappointed me by going on too long (Pink Floyd's The Wall is one of my all-time least favorite albums, while Led Zeppelin's In Through the Out Door has two songs I can listen to without wanting to shove pencils through my eardrums).
I don't mind that Led Zeppelin were derivative (or less graciously, thieves). Likewise, I don't hold the popular opinion that Pink Floyd's only valid work was done with Syd Barrett.
That's a really tough choice. I voted for Pink Floyd, because they are such a big part of my childhood memories. As was Led Zeppelin, but Floyd seemed to have more of an impact on me. Although seeing Zeppelin live in their day would have been incredible.
I certainly don't think those audiofiles are in the majority otherwise the Wall and Dark Side wouldn't be two of the best selling albums of all time.
That was really hard. I went with Floyd but it was tough
Ok this is fucked up. I actually think Pink Floyd is the better band, but I like Led Zeppelin more. Good poll
Check out Sleeping is Giving in for great mixes and other cool stuff

Pie vs. Cake
Either way you win.
they are so different.
but obviously its the floyd. i can listen to pink floyd any time, anywhere, in any mood and its always a satisfying selection. i always love listening to zeppelin but i have to be in the right state of mind to even consider putting it on.
PINK FLOYD, this was easy.
July 21- Soundgarden- Bill Graham Civic Auditorium
July 30- Rage Against the Machine/Muse- LA Coliseum
Oct 21- Portishead- Berkeley Greek
Nov 18- Pixies- Fox Theater Bakersfield
Zeppelin was a cover band.
Thats the stupidest thing i've ever heard...sure they stole a few blues riffs, but then again, who didn't? Zeppelin was so diverse that is just straight ignorant to say.
Not any easy choice obviously, but dammit if I am not a sucker for psychedelia.
led zeppelin is rock!!!
pink floyd not exactly rock
coachella people dont like hard rock "oh no zeppelin they are so rude like cavemen thats no smart!!" lets listen to justice or hot chip or some new indie band
being a drummer. zeppelin by a fucking milestone. floyd never hit me. floyd. zeppelin will always be my favorite classic rock band. the social stigma surrounding floyd has always put me off about them.
