    Prefer Nirvana for consistency and being more raw and experimental. LZ from Physical Graffiti and on wasn't really my thing, but their first four albums were fantastic.

    Biggest take away from this thread is that a lot of supposedly big LZ fans can't even spell the band name right.

    Its maybe not pushed as a popular viewpoint but I actually think that GnR's initial rise helped set things in the direction of Grunge, still had a lot of the hair metal look but a lot more punky energy rather than the overly polished stuff like Poison. That Nirvana and Pearl Jam took off so much in 91 was IMHO partly that GnR returned with a much more polished/bloated stadium rock style and fans moved on.

    They are both great, and I will catch slack for this, but Nirvana's sound is much more relevant now than Led Zep's is. Cobain off'd himself 24 years ago, and they still play Nirvana all the time on the modern radio stations. Only place you'd hear led zep is the classic rock station. For example, my brother is in high school- Nirvana a is still quite popular amongst the youth. I asked him about Zep and a few other classic bands, and he says nobody besides the kids really into classic rock care about them. Keep in my mind my brother is a dumbshit, but that's what he told me.
