Both songs are way overrated but in a pinch you have to go with Zeppelin

Tough choice, but I listen to Free Bird on a more regular basis so that is how I based my decision.

Tough call. Two of my favorite songs in Rock n Roll history. Pretty much a coin flip that landed on Free Bird.

Zeppelin is far and away the superior band. And that's not even close. But if we are just looking at this two songs independently of their source, Free Bird is the better song.

I can think of 3-4 of the best songs Skynyrd has that can stand up against some of Zep's best....but after that LZ runs away with it. They have about 2 full albums worth of great songs.

Now Pink Floyd...that's a hell of an argument.

Didn't cross my mind. If I would have thought of that sooner I would have pitted "Dark Side of the Moon" against "Stairway to Heaven"

They were an amazing band, but that's a stretch. Allow me to pontificate.

With Steve Gaines they peaked, blowing away what they did before (Street Survivors is their best album and one of the very best from any American rock band)

But there are many other bands of their era that could give them a run for their money. If you consider their "era" to be roughly 1973-1977, you are passing up some amazing groups.

On any given night, I think the Allmans could have been a match for Skynyrd in the mid-70's

I know you don't like them, but there are some truly astounding Dead concerts from 1974 & 1977 that blew Skynyrd away

And studio-wise, you can't tell me Skynyrd's albums were on a par with many other 70's groups (Springsteen & E Street Band, Sly & Family Stone, Steely Dan - all had fantastic studio albums)

And if you step outside their era, you simply can't make that statement because there are many other bands that were better, although it may be unfair to compare them because those other groups were much different. For instance it isn't fair to compare the Ramones or Velvet Underground or the Byrds to them because it's almost like Skynyrd is their own genre. As are those bands.

I'll go even a step further and say that many of Skynyrd's albums were full of filler (Nuthin Fancy and Gimme Back My Bullets are not that great, they only have 2-3 good songs each). Even RVZ said one time that when Steve Gaines joined, they "became" Lynyrd Skynyrd and gave him a serious boost of his songwriting. Sadly we'll never know what might have been. Somewhere I read that they would have become the American version of the Rolling Stones had that crash never happened
