@Ernie15 Man... that was a deception... (oO) ...I really thought they made an original song there! LOL ^^

Ah, well... I'm glad you didn't link the Queen version as a cover that deserves an honorable mentioning! That improvised piece of crappery-crap-crap-crap was not worthy of Queen's massive legacy, let alone being compared to an immense icon the legendary band Led Zeppelin is... *facepalms* =/

Right... the show must go on! (bad pun to be ignored) First score count for:

Led Zeppelin for sure. I didn't really bother to listen to all of the covers but I love the original :)

The original is still the best. Ann Wilson did a nice job, but it doesn't compare to Zep's version.

None of these covers are anywhere near as good as the original and half of them sound exactly the same. definitely the original, cant be beat

The covers start out decent, but they all turn into tuneless metal songs somewhere down the line. The one that really caught me with my pants around my ankles was Ann Wilson. She did a remarkable job imitating Robert Plant's voice, but even in that case the beginning was the only good part.

Led Zeppelin made the song short and sweet, and no metal singer is going to be able to imitate Robert's infamous screech at the beginning of the song.

The original is the best. Even though I haven't heard the covers, they sure can't match the original song.

The original by Led Zeppelin will most likely win this battle, and rightly so. Their song is inimitable. Therefore I will give an honorary vote to Demons And Wizards for making not that bad of a job. I still like to listen to their version. Though I'm probably just biased because I like the voice of the singer, especially as the singer of Blind Guardian.

The original is the best one here. None of the others really have the right sound to them, if you know what I mean. So my vote goes to Led Zeppelin.

If I had to choose between the covers, I would choose Ann Wilson's version, because at least it's quite original compared to the other ones. But Led Zep is my favorite band, the original song will always remain the best for me.

Led Zep wins.
