Is Tiësto the Led Zeppelin of Electronic Dance Music? Take Our Poll

TiestoNewYearsEveFontainebl.jpg
Bold beats and even bolder statements -- that's the product of Tiësto's new web series, In the Booth.

From his arena shows to outdoor festivals, college tour and beyond, the online, HP-backed and Intel-sponsored reality mini-series is yet another example of how EDM has gone mainstream.

In the Booth premiered today on the Dutch DJ's YouTube channel and it's a behind-the-scenes look at all things Tiësto. Dropping beat bombs on middle America while threatening the sanctity of rock 'n' roll, the teaser trailer is downright blasphemous.



Just five seconds in and some dude squeezes Tiësto onto the same fucking pedestal as Robert Plant.

"He is your Led Zeppelin," The Joint at Hard Rock Las Vegas' William Conn blurts before further insulting the greatness of Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham by inadvertently lumping them into the same category as radio rock. "He is your Bon Jovi. He is your U2."

What do y'all think, is Tiësto on par with Led Zeppelin? Or is this cat crazy? Take our poll.



Tiësto plays Ultra Music Festival 2012. Friday, March 23, to Sunday, March 25, 2012. Bayfront Park, 301 Biscayne Blvd., Miami. Tickets are sold out. Visit ultramusicfestival.com.

Tiesto should not be compared to anyone else but others should be compared to him. He has had many accomplishments and one of those was to be the first DJ ever to have a solo concert. Thats right if it wasnt for Tiesto DJs would still be playing at night clubs and festivals with about 5 other Djs and thanks to Tiesto Djs are able to have concerts of their own. And that is one of the reasons Tiesto will always be a legend and be remembered in the history of dance music! Any Dj or true dance music fan should now that if it wasnt for TIESTO the EDM wouldnt be where it is at today!

no and you lose all musical credibility by even considering comparing a dj to one of the best bands to ever exist

No doubt Tiesto is the greatest of his kind. Personally I like all types of music and he is still top of my list! Has been for years and hope for many more. I've seen him 3 times so far and will go to almost any lengths to see him again.

I think the guy's quote was taken a little out of context, probably meant it as someone who is completely into the electronic scene, he is the Led Zepplin of it.

Zep holds the 3rd best selling rock album in the US behind Michael jackson and the Eagles. A dance artist?! Are you kidding? One tiny genre of repetitive Electronic music VS the groundbreaking thunderous sound of the mighty Zeppelin?? This shouldn't even be a question.
