i hear a lot about led lepplin - stairway to heaven being the best song ever. but i listen to it and like its a good song, great riffs but its not really the best. on the other hand queen - bohemian rhapsody is a great song. so much to listen to in that song, so much meaning. so whats your take on the debate.

I would have to agree...but a band that has songs that dont have a real meaning to them cept for the back in black album would have to be AC/DC......

Pearl Jam tunes have always hit me ... hearing Ed sing his heart out on "Black" for my show was just amazing ... so much feeling/emotion ...

Dave Matthews also does a great watch tower cover (though greatly overplayed).

I don't think that "Stairway" is Zeppelin's greatest song, but I also don't think that Queen has greater songs than Zeppelin. I read a magazine poll from the UK that had "Bohemian Rhapsody" voted the greatest rock song of all time. It's a great song, but I would never have it near #1! Anyhow... here are some worth mention:

Pride - U2 (tough to pick just one from them)
Atlantic City - Bruce Springsteen
Jeremy - Pearl Jam

the walrus represents death ... is that the album that when played backwards says "john is dead"? supposable john was killed before the beatles made it big and the john that you know is a fake. tons of conspiracy theorys and I love how the beatles played w/ them w/ album covers like abby road :)
