10. 'No Quarter'

Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones was quite pissed off when he learned that Jimmy Page and Robert Plant were reuniting without him in 1994, but he was especially upset when he learned they were calling the project "No Quarter." He co-wrote the seven-minute song on Houses of the Holy, and his long keyboard intro to the track was his spotlight moment at concerts all through the 1970s. The haunting number is a real fan favorite and onstage, it took on a life of its own, sometimes stretching over 30 minutes. Zeppelin are often pigeonholed as an aggressive hard-rock band, but songs like "No Quarter" show their incredible range.
