LED ZEPPELIN’S ‘Stairway to Heaven’ has been named the most classic classic rock song by the listeners of the radio station ‘Planet Rock’.
Stairway saw off exceedingly tough competition to take the glittering gold. (Pun intended). Deep Purple’s ‘Smoke on the Water’ took silver, whilst Lynyrd Skynyrd’s epic ‘Free Bird’ came away with the bronze.
Fourth was ‘All Right Now’ by Free. Led Zeppelin’s ‘Whole Lotta Love’ was fifth, and Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ was sixth.
The top 10 was rounded out by: ‘Whole Lotta Rosie’ (AC/DC), ‘More than a Feeling’ (Boston), ‘Paranoid’ (Black Sabbath) and ‘Comfortably Numb’ (Pink Floyd).

Personally, I voted for ‘Comfortably Numb’ obviously. I was not at all surprised by the top two. In fact the only surprise really for me was that ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ only came sixth.http://www.planetrock.com/Article.asp?id=1737453&spid=35748
