Although Zep is a great band with histoirc importance and I own the majority of their albums I do not often feel like listening to them. Rush however is very often on my playlist.

Rush!

I'm not a big fan of either.  I despise poppy music and generic rock music, and these bands are the epitome of both.  I'm going to have to say LZ though.  Because there was a time when I know I loved them.  Same with Rush, but that time lasted about until I realised Hemispheres was the only thing they ever released that I cared about.  Now I couldn't care much less for either group.  Theres just so much non generic music out there that there's no reason to continue to listen to LZ just because they were popular.  The internet has made popular irrelevant.

Both bands have a handful of good songs. Although I can't say I'm a real fan of Rush or Led Zeppelin.

I guess I choose not to decide, in which I still have made a choice. Darn.

I like Zeppelin a lot better than Rush. But I have to say that it seems to me that Rush are the genuine thing as far as being a Prog band is concerned. Can't say the same about Led Zeppelin. A great band, but not at all Prog.

When I first read the thread title "Rush vs. Led Zeppelin", I laughed. Then I opened up the thread to see that Rush is beating Zep 24 to 21! I thought it would be a landslide in favor of Zep, and then I remembered where I was... Prog Archives! So, my point is that this is sort of a biased poll, seeing that Zep hasn't widely been regarded as a prog band, and Rush, some feel, is at the very peak of the prog-rock genre. Geddy Lee has always been like nails on a chalkboard for me. Zep kills Rush. = 2 cents.

On a sidenote, the guys of Rush (who are almost 60 now) named their most recent tour the "Time Machine Tour". That's cute... or sad.

Rush is PROG and its RUSH! Zeppelin is Prog Related and they never reached the kind of musicianship Rush has. Also Rush's lyrics I love, Zeppelin's I don't.

Led Zeppelin. My first true music love.

Rush isn't half bad either though. Definitely growing on me, that's for sure.

The Zeps. As one would say, "At any time of day". So far I haven't heard a single Rush song that actually works for me (Maybe save for 'Limelight' ... maybe). I'm not much of a lyrical guy and the musicianship in Rush's canon tends to overshadow the value of melody and tone ... . Hey, that's what my ears told me ! Those bureaucrats !

P. S.: Yes, I've heard their classic records. So far it ain't working.

Considering that Rush started in playing Zep covers in the Toronto bars, this poll is pretty funny.  Really don't see a need to choose one over the other; they're both great bands who greatly influenced rock music.

Same here! Rush is great too, but Led Zeppelin is very special to me.
I'm actually a bit surprised that they're so close on the polls. I was expecting more Rush votes.

You just got your first Rush album? Where the f**k did you get lost?

Rush got me into music. My parents are big fans so I've been listening to them all my life. Once I got on the internet, Rush led me to tons of other amazing and great bands. Rush is probobly may favorite band, so, even though I respect Led Zeplin and like some of thier music, Zeplin can f**k off.
