Personally I wouldn't consider Helter Skelter a metal song or Blue Cheer's cover of Sumertime Blues, but I included it anyway to stop peple whining.

I prefer early metal over most othe eras because as soon as it goes mainstream (this goes with pretty much any othe rgenre too) it gets cluster****ed with people who instead of doing it for the music do it to try to make themselves look cool and rebellious(ironically) instead of being experimental and creative to much extent.

I don't think that word means what you think it means.......

PS: Devin Townsend is as far from mainstream as it gets.

It's the third best selling genre, behind pop and rap (4th if you consider RnB seperate from rock), sounds pretty mainstream to me. Obviously the style varies between bands so it's hard to list them all under the same bracket, but you get my point, I hope.

He tried to sound mainstream on Epicloud. He couldn't do it. The personality he puts into his music is too gargantuan for mainstream music.

Walpurgis (War Pigs) and Black Sabbath were written in '69 I believe, so those ones.

Metal didn't exist until 1970.


Really?

If any of these songs were made today a) the bands probably would have opted for heavier distortion and b) it was considered metal. Black Sabbath had a couple of songs that were heavier but the songs above are definetly closer to metal than standard rock.
