CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

ACDC all the way
Debate Round No. 1

Thank you for accepting the challenge! May we begin this fun debate:

Led Zeppelin were clearly one of the greatest bands to ever be on the earth. For the band contains only the best and top notch artist ever. Jimmy Page, ONE of the greatest guitarists ever. John Bonham, the best drummer in the world! John Paul Jones, only the best bass player ever (next to John Entwistle). And last but not least Robert Plant, the man that has a voice of an angel. ACDC were a great band and i love them a lot but they don't compare at all to Led Zeppelin. 1) Led Zeppelin had way bigger crowds and fans. Yeah ACDC is still around but only because Led Zeppelins drummer died and they couldn't continue because they realized that Led Zeppelin isn't Led Zeppelin without all 4 men. 2) Full of the greatest musicians ever. Angus Young is fantastic but compares nothing to Jimmy Page, I mean come one Jimmy wrote the one song that every man, women, and child knows: Stairway to Heaven. 3) They had a much closer band and tighter sound! They were able to jam of each other constantly and thats what they did! ACDC had great band members and songs but don't obtain the power that led zeppelin has!

"ACDC were a great band and i love them a lot but they don't compare at all to Led Zeppelin."

Angus Young, Malcolm Young, and Cliff Williams are some of the most well known guitarists in music, while Brian Johnson has one of the most recognizable singing voices in history. Id call it about even in terms of membership.

"Led Zeppelin had way bigger crowds and fans"

ACDC the second best selling album of all time (Back in Black) while Led Zepplin comes in tenth.

ACDC also has the third highest grossing tour of all time as well (Black Ice: $441 Million Grossed: 4.8 Million fans combined) while Led Zepplin didnt even make the list

ACDC clearly attracted bigger crowds and fans then Led Zepplin did

"Yeah ACDC is still around but only because Led Zeppelins drummer died and they couldn't continue because they realized that Led Zeppelin isn't Led Zeppelin without all 4 men"

ACDC's lead singer Bon Scott died and he was the legend who sang 'Highway to Hell', but that didnt stop ACDC from disbanding. They found and even better singer and kept right on going and making music.

The best bands can survive the deaths of one of their own and still go strong, which is solid evidence that ACDC is better then Led Zepplin since they didnt disband just because one of their core members died.

"2) Full of the greatest musicians ever. Angus Young is fantastic but compares nothing to Jimmy Page, I mean come one Jimmy wrote the one song that every man, women, and child knows: Stairway to Heaven. 3) They had a much closer band and tighter sound! They were able to jam of each other constantly and thats what they did! ACDC had great band members and songs but don't obtain the power that led zeppelin has!"

Well thats just an opinion really.... None of that is backed by any kind of evidence, thats just ones personal taste in music. The numbers show that ACDC has made more money and has more fans then Led Zepplin which kind of implies that they are better

A counter vote should be isolated as just that. Not 'I like this side, so I'm going to vote for them, and give them extra points under the pretext of countering' ... Also I don't think I've ever seen a single point vote which is a votebomb.

Reasons for voting decision: Arguments are way too subjective to vote on, I mean are selling stadiums really more meaningful than a 'more selective' fan base like what Spinal Tap grew to have? ... However the missed round really hurts conduct.

Reasons for voting decision: THIS IS NOT A CVB, if someone would like to do that they may. I was going to, but I'd rather actually cast a vote than a CVB. Con did present evidence for his side, such has better album sales and better tours (in terms of both monetary and number of fans). Con also gets the conduct because pro forfeited.
