Maybe it has something to do with Zep being much better than the Who?

Psst. They liked them more back then, too. Just look at the difference in album sales.

Personally, I adore them both. I recall a thread not too long ago where several people, myself included, debated the relative merits of each band, and it was a very interesting discussion. Perhaps I can find it somewhere.

The Who:

1. Quadrophenia
2. Tommy
3. Live at Leeds
4. any of their single releases
5. The Who by Numbers

Led Zeppelin:
1. IV
2. Houses of the Holy
3. III
4. Physical Graffiti
5. II

Personally, I prefer The Who, but Zeppelin's a good band as well. They're a little more hit or miss for me

Oh, come now...The Who are better at some things. I highly doubt a Led Zeppelin rock opera about a paraplegic boy named Timmy with awesome frisbee talents would have been nearly as good as Tommy.

Then again...
