When it comes to rock ‘n’ roll, and the argument of what the greatest rock ‘n’ roll song of all time is, you’re talking about a topic that is subjective and impossible to scientifically determine. But because the topic is so disputed, many songs can be considered the greatest rock ‘n’ roll song of all time.

So for the sake of argument, we can say that the greatest rock ‘n’ roll song of all time was all thanks to Kalamazoo and a guitar that was made by the Gibson Guitar factory at 225 Parsons St.. The song comes from the legendary band, Led Zeppelin.

When Led Zeppelin released their untitled album, which is commonly known as Led Zeppelin IV, they most likely had no clue just how legendary Stairway to Heaven would become.

It was voted number three in the year 2000 by VH1 in the list of 100 greatest rock songs, but Stairway to Heaven was named the greatest rock ‘n’ roll song of all time by the British magazine Classic Rock and Guitar World for the greatest guitar solo of all time.

Rolling Stone themselves put it in the top 10. In the song, legendary guitarist Jimmy Page uses a Gibson EDS-1275 double-neck guitar, which was made right in the Gibson guitar factory in Kalamazoo, which page himself visited many times.

If you go through the list of songs, considered to be the greatest rock songs of all time, you will most likely find that Kalamazoo Gibson guitars are responsible for them. You’re welcome world.
