Led Zeppelin.

The most overrated British band.. yes. The best? Debatable. Just depends on how you define 'the best'.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 6/5/06 - 2:08:13 PM EST (GMT-5)
They likely wouldn't even make my top 5, to be honest.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 6/5/06 - 2:10:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well what's the competition?

Either them or Zeppelin I'm sure.

14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 6/5/06 - 2:13:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
One of the best for sure. The Smiths were amazing!
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 6/5/06 - 10:33:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, probably just the most well known.

Overrated?!? OVERRATED??????!!!!!!????

92!!!

14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 6/5/06 - 10:34:18 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sure, why not.

I don't listen to British bands. At least I don't think so.

14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Monday 6/5/06 - 10:36:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
No f*cking way! IRON MAIDEN is!

Their most obvious compeitition is the Rolling Stones.

Nu uh, QUEEN are the most obvious competition.

It also depends on how what the criteria is that makes them "best".

If you're actually judging their musical skill, than no way. In that case, I'd say Zeppelin easily.

If you're judging on public appeal, how wide of an audience they have, and how well they've held up through the years, then yes.

14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 6/8/06 - 1:03:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
No question, the BEST! Their writing was genius! The melodies sublime! Don't judge them if you're too young to have appreciated them.
14 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 6/8/06 - 1:06:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Best? Not in *my* opinion, but they're probably among the most influential.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 6/10/06 - 5:12:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
The Stones are the closest thing they have to competition. Then Zeppelin and Judas Priest.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 6/10/06 - 5:15:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
not the best but one of them.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 6/11/06 - 8:40:12 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think Queen is better.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 6/11/06 - 10:17:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
In terms of musical inventiveness, originality and the sheer phenomenon that arose from them, how could they not be?
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 6/11/06 - 12:13:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
For me they're the best over all band, not only British. But as always: different people like different stuff ...
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 6/11/06 - 12:14:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think they were the best but they are up there. They did pave the way for a lot of other British bands to make it in other countries.

I think "influential-ness" (a word I just made up) is an important component of making a band "best". Think about the body of musical work we now have that we could possibly not have had, had it not been for that influence.

So yes, they're top 5. Zeppelin and Queen are both up there, but the Stones are not.

14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 6/11/06 - 12:45:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Pink Floyd is the best
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Sunday 6/11/06 - 3:37:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
Best British band? Best Band ever, period.
14 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Saturday 6/17/06 - 1:09:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
Do you mean personal opinion, or an objective best? As far as an objective best, I don't believe one can exist, since enjoyment of music is based entirely on opinion.

As for personal opinion? Not even close. Judas Priest, My Dying Bride, Iron Maiden, Ozzy, Black Sabbath, etc - are all much more enjoyed by me.

And what makes someones age any indication of their ability to judge music?

Gosh! Hell no, The Beatles weren't the best British band ever! gosh! gosh! gosh! gosh!
