    Get those people out of your life. Now.

    I personally do not think Zeppelin is metal and lots do...like yeah I get it, but Black Sabbaths first album came out 13 months later. Thats when the clock ticks for me, but hey, arguing about metal subgenres is bad enough.

    The earliest metal-sounding band I ever heard was Mountain.

    The first band I ever heard labelled 'Heavy Metal' was Led Zeppelin, but this was in Rolling Stone magazine and after they had already been playing for almost 5-10 years - so I found that perplexing to retroactively call them something when they already had been known as a heavy blues band with some acoustic folk and variety mixed in, up to that point.

    In my mind, the muted-string chugging of chords is what I first associated as metal or heavy metal. Early examples were Scorpions and Sabbath. But I have no idea who was really first.

    It didn't just suddenly happen where one day someone invented metal, though. Completely non-metal/rock acts had hints of that sound coming over the years - like Mick Ronson on Suffragette City with David Bowie had that heavy distorted Marshall chugging. Before that Velvet Underground had a taste of that heavy chugging on some songs as well.

    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

    And don't forget: Barry Whitman of Herman's Hermits played blast beats on their 1966 hit, "Mrs. Brown, Are You Quite Sure You Haven't Got a Sister?"

    I know right. It's great because if I wasn't such an a-hole and hadn't hijacked as hard as I did, we wouldn't have such a good thread going right now and we can be proud of the positive outcome of our collective jerkhood.
