I knew that the Beatles would 'win' in this 'contest', because I have been here at kvr for way too long, and I know the overall feel of the place.

But to be serious for a moment (sorry vurt), the interesting thing is not that the Beatles are slightly more popular, but that a band like Led Zeppelin got as popular as they did. Metal has become an underground musical style, with the vast majority of major bands getting zero radio play and little in the way of national promotion. And outside of a handful of bands it kind of always has been this way.

Led Zeppelin made things even more difficult for themselves by doing all of the quirky acoustic stuff that they did (e.g. most of their 3rd album), and yet they sold a ridiculous amount of records.

It is kind of odd, really.

The Beatles win in most every place, especially with a cohort of baby-boomers involved. Why do you think that is?

I think the zep sound was more cloned though, especially by metal bands and I think the beatles sound is more dated. I think one thing they have in common is how much of an influence both bands were to different genres.
