Led Zeppelin is my all time favorite band. All of their songs are great, but Achilles last stand is the best! It's too bad that the radio stations only ever play Stairway to heaven.

I have listened to Led Z since I was 13...they will be forever tops in my books! Sweet memories of the carefree 70's!

Get up to date people Ann Wilson of Heart has said many times that they tried to write a song like achillies last stand ...and that song was barracuda.

Achilles Last Stand.. so heavy and sinister, and at the same time somehow hopeful. That is the dichotomy that is Zeppelin.

Bonham's drums on this song are my favorite. Jimmy also admitted that this was his favorite Led Zeppelin song. I got this album and i have to say it is Led Zeppelin's underrated masterpiece.

Achilles Last Stand (Presence, 1976) sounds EXACTLY like U2. Coincidence?

Heart has a heavy Zeppelin influence in their sound.

The best band in the history of the universe playing one of the best songs ever composed by mortals! Of course, in my opinion, all of their songs are the best. I cant think of a bad song that they have! I know a few that people would call terrible but personally i believe that they do not have a bad song.

Led Zeppelin - opening track on their 1976 album Presence
HEART - first single from the band's second album Little Queen (1977).
Are you implying one copied the other?

Is it just me or does the guitar riff sound really similar to Barracuda by Heart?

Awesome for sure... I'm back in high-school again ~ hearing this!!! "GREAT" in a word!!! I love it! The bridge kicks a**! & then the solo is so cool over the machine gun drumming! I never heard anything like it before. Very inspired playing!!!

I heard this blasting from the other room. "This sounds like Zeppelin", I thought. Makes sense that I didn't recognize the song--this is the one Zep studio album that I never got in my Zep days, and I think I heard it in its entirety once about 25 years ago. This is a GREAT song--too bad classic rock radio(which I eschewed years ago) plays the same old tired tunes.

about as definitcve as Zeppelin gets. true gold standard.

GREATEST SONG EVER!
Report as inappropriate
This is an incredible song. John Bonham and John Paul Jones are like a runaway train on this one. If I listen to this while I'm driving, it makes me drive must faster. What a great wall of sound from Page.
I think this song, and this whole album, were very underrated and overlooked.

Bonham says it all with blazing triplets.... . One of their very best imo.

I was not introduced to this album until my late teens. This song immediately jumped at me as a great work of art.
