5 Led Zeppelin vs. 124 Def Leppard

Led Zeppelin is one of the bands credited for inventing heavy metal,  infusing the blues with a heavy sound and mystical lyrics. Zeppelin’s music and mythos is the stuff of legend, and the band has come to define a certain aspect of rock ‘n’ roll.

Def Leppard emerged in the early 80s as part of the new wave of British metal. In 1984, drummer Rick Allen lost his arm after a car accident and, using an electronic drum kit, he and the band altered their sound and rose to even greater fame.
