“Ultimate Classic Rock” ranked all 92 LED ZEPPELIN songs . . . including every track from their nine albums, as well as some odds and ends that have popped up since.

But they kept the list to official, finished songs, so they left off most of the bonus material from the remastered ‘deluxe’ re-issues, because a lot of them were still just “sketches” of finished songs.

However, one of those bonus tracks was listed as the WORST Zeppelin song.  It’s 10 Ribs & All / Carrot Pod Pod, and it was a previously unreleased song, which appeared on the deluxe edition of “Presence”.

The site says, quote, “The first half is a pretty piano-based instrumental . . . it sounds nothing like the heavy ‘Presence’ that was recorded at the same time.  Aimless, as far as these things go.”

There are no big shockers on the latter part of the list.

So, here are the 10 BEST, which of course is packed with their hits:

1.  “Stairway to Heaven”, 1971

 

2.  “Whole Lotta Love”, 1969

 

3.  “Kashmir”, 1975

 

4.  “Dazed and Confused”, 1969

 

5.  “Immigrant Song”, 1970

 

6.  “Rock and Roll”, 1971

 

7.  “When the Levee Breaks”, 1971

 

8.  “Black Dog”, 1971

 

9.  “Heartbreaker”, 1969

 

10.  “Ramble On”, 1969
