    Greatest Rock/Metal Band ROUND 1 MATCH 9

    Black Sabbath

    Quote Originally Posted by Wiki
    Black Sabbath are an English heavy metal band. Formed in Birmingham in 1968 by Ozzy Osbourne (lead vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar), Geezer Butler (bass), and Bill Ward (drums and percussion), the band has since experienced multiple lineup changes, with a total of twenty-two former members. Originally formed as a heavy blues-rock band named Earth, the band began incorporating occult- and horror-inspired lyrics with tuned-down guitars, changing their name to Black Sabbath and releasing multiple gold and platinum records in the 1970s.

    As one of the first and most influential heavy metal bands of all time, Black Sabbath helped define the genre with releases such as 1970's quadruple-platinum Paranoid.[1] Black Sabbath has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide,[2] and were ranked number one on MTV's Greatest Metal Bands countdown.[3] Ozzy Osbourne was fired from the band in 1979, and while initially replaced by former Rainbow vocalist Ronnie James Dio, Black Sabbath would see a revolving lineup in the 1980s and 1990s that included vocalists Ian Gillan, Glenn Hughes, Ray Gillen and Tony Martin. The original lineup reunited with Osbourne in 1997 and released a live album, Reunion, which spawned the Grammy Award-winning single "Iron Man" in 2000, thirty years after the song's initial release on Paranoid.

    Currently, the early 1980s line-up featuring Iommi, Butler, Dio, and Vinny Appice are recording a new album under the moniker Heaven and Hell, a title taken from the 1980 Black Sabbath song and album of the same name.

    Led Zeppelin

    Quote Originally Posted by Wiki

With their heavy, guitar-driven sound, Led Zeppelin are regarded as one of the first heavy metal bands.[1][2] However, the band's individualistic style draws from many sources and transcends any one genre.[3] Their rock-infused interpretation of the blues and folk genres[4] also incorporated rockabilly,[5] reggae,[6] soul,[7] funk,[8] classical, Celtic, Indian, Arabic, pop, Latin and country.[9] The band did not release the popular songs from their albums as singles in the UK, as they preferred to develop the concept of album-oriented rock.[10][11]

    Almost 30 years after disbanding following Bonham's death in 1980, the band continue to be held in high regard for their artistic achievements, commercial success and broad influence. The band have sold more than 300 million albums worldwide,[12][13][14][15][16] including 111.5 million sales in the United States[17] and they have had all of their original studio albums reach the U.S. Billboard Top 10,[18] with six reaching the number one spot. Led Zeppelin are ranked #1 on VH1's 100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock.[19] Rolling Stone magazine has described Led Zeppelin as "the heaviest band of all time" and "the biggest band of the 70s".[20]

    On 10 December 2007 the surviving members of Led Zeppelin reunited (along with deceased drummer John Bonham's son, Jason) for the Ahmet Ertegün Tribute Concert at The O2 Arena in London.

    No way. Black Dog is great and the Immigrant song is one of their most popular.

    I voted Sabbath in a very close contest.

    Re: Greatest Rock/Metal Band ROUND 1 MATCH 9

    Up until recently I'd have voted Zeppelin 9 times out of 10 in this poll cause they're probably my favourite band ever, and they made probably the biggest influence on music today along with Beatles, but I just think Sabbath have better songs so I'm going with them.

    Sabbath. They were the true inventors of metal and from what I've noticed, Sabbath has had tons more influence on music than Zeppelin has. Plus Sabbath is my favorite band of all time with Zeppelin down farther in my top five.

    tbh Led Zep were more of an influence, and I am not a big fan of Sabbath so I am voting for LZ.
