I am in support of this. Con argues first.

Magna-Fi is not a good band because all of their songs sound the same. They use all the same instruments, same scales, same techniques. The vocalist only has one functional singing voice. Also, they don't do anything original. Everything they do has already been done by Puddle of Mudd or Alice in Chains.

Led Zeppelin, on the other hand, is an incredibly diverse band. The genres they've played include soft rock, hard rock, folk, blues, and pop. And everything they did was totally original. Nobody else at the time had done what they were doing.

"The vocalist only has one functional singing voice," you do not know that they will not get a temporary vocalist, and then their current vocalist will not get more singing practice and then be their vocalist again. Besides, it could simply be a vocal birth defect. Lack of originality or diversity may also be a product of the songwriter not having enough experience. One of their songs was also in a hybrid mix, which never happened with any Led-Zepplin song . Here is the link to it: http://m.youtube.com...

Also, Led Zepplin songs very frequently contain profanity, which means that fewer children will be allowed to listen to it. Magna-Fi, however, has never said a curse word in any of their songs. You also have no sources to back up your claims about Magna-Fi from round one.

Contention 1:"...all of their songs sound the same," actually, Magna-Fi's songs are about diverse topics and have different moods and tones, just like Led-Zeppelin's. For example, "TV Killed Me" is a song about the singer watching too much TV and why he hopes no one else gets into his habit, with a forewarning tone and upbeat mood.

"You Miserable Failure," on the other hand, is a wrathful song about a dishonest person and has a judgmental tone.

Contention 2: music and video games are both electronic media, usually meant to entertain the user. Since this is true, and since the most selling video games are a remake of an original idea that deviates only mildly from the original idea [1], the same logic should be applicable to music. You said it yourself: "Led-Zeppelin is a very diverse band... Nobody knew what they were doing at the time."
