    Pink Floyd. Just because I really don't like Led Zep, even though I'm a Yardbirds fan.

    Pink Floyd. Wish You Were Here (the album) is one of the best ever, and Wish You Were Here (the song) is one of the best ever

    Damn - toughie.

    Pink Floyd are quite off the wall (oh god, what a bad pun) and experimental, whereas Led Zep rock is more just damn good music.

    I like both and listen to both at different times. Elpollodiablouk - I agree. Wish you were here is an awesome song/album. Did you hear Wyclef Jean's cover? I actually quite liked it.

    I voted Led Zep.

    Argh - what a hard question!

    I love them both. Led Zeppelin were the founders of real rock really, and managed to do the whole acoustic thing pretty damn well too ("That's the Way", "Going to California," "Gallows Pole"). They were absolutely fantastic live, and just opened up so many opportunities for other bands.

    As for Pink Floyd, they progressed from the weird, psychadelic fairy-tale lyrics of the Syd Barrett stuff to create one of the finest moments in rock history so far (the whole "Wish You Were Here" CD), and the disturbing, yet amazing, "The Wall."

    It's a tough call, but I voted Pink Floyd. "Comfortably Numb," "Wish You Were Here" and "Have A Cigar" are some of my favourite songs ever written.

    Got to be Led Zeppelin, every single rock band since has owed a debt to the ground they opened up and as a band they were incredible.

    Floyd were undoubtedly amazing, but Led Zeppelin were the best band. Ever.

    Very different indeed. Pink Floyd may have been more innovative but were really inconsistent and nowhere near as talented musicians as Led Zeppelin so Led Zeppelin get my vote.

    Dang! What a biatch of a question. I have to say Pink Floyd get my vote here though, just because I love that whole Prog Rock sound.

    Pink Floyd went for perfection and innovation in the studio. Led Zep went all out rock.
    I'm gonna abstain because its unfair on the other if one gets my vote

    Led Zep had some brilliant songs and IV is probably the best rock album of all time.
    However Pink FLoyd are better.

    Oh come on - obviously The Beatles were awesome but I know that if I could only listen to one of them ever again it would be Led Zep.

    I am going out on a limb here, The Beatles are overrated in my opinion. They are great and I love their music, but there have been better artists.

    The Beatles were revolutionary, that does not make them automatically amazing. I personally do like them, however it's easy to understand that today music taste are completely different, thanks to the beatles not of the beatles (that doesnt make sence, but i'm sure you can understand).

    Personally Led Zeppelin. Pink Floyd are great, but i love the more blusey rock feel to Zep.
