Ok im doing a paper for school on the history of metal but this one question stumps me,

WHO INVENTED IT?

I think that it was The Kinks but i want to hear what others think

Black Sabbath

Just about every metal documentary I've seen cites them as the first real metal band.

Sabbath.

Seriously, just end it here.
"We barely remember who or what came before this precious moment"

Tool, anyone?
Alter Bridge, maybe?
A bit of John Mayer?
Some beethoven sounds delightful, as well.

It can be argued that Black Sabbath was the first "true" heavy metal band, but holding the definition of heavy metal to be it's original "guitar driven, rather than lyrically driven, music," then I would say Zeppelin.

check out my sig, it FINALLY SERVES A PURPOSE!!!

Edit: and in my humble opinion, I would credit Cream over Sabbath based purely on the fact Cream was earlier. I understand everyone won't necessarily agree with me
They credited us with the birth of that sort of heavy metal thing. Well, if that's the case, there should be an immediate abortion.

this..

I dont think the kinks are metal at all.. they inspired brit pop mind.. enough influence there for a whole section on the edexcel gcse music syllabus.

Black Sabbath was definatly the first true metal band...they still are one of the darkest, scariest, heaviest bands. but if you want to name just one person, Tony Iommi started everything.

I Agree with Sabbath but I've always felt that Helter Skelter by The Beatles was the first real heavy song out there.

I'd sat Sabbath was the first Heavy Metal BAND, but otherwise it was Steppenwolf that opened the genre (I'm thinking Magic Carpet Ride). Sabbath definitely started doom metal, though (Into The Void, anyone?).

Really, depending on how far back you really want to go you could trace the whole rock/metal lineage back to Elvis. I'm going to say Steppenwolf, though. After them, it was definitely Zeppelin.

EDIT:

Like said above Sabbath. They were the very first band that went to that sludgey dark tuning and just add distortion, Ozzy's howling vocals, and Ginger Butler and heavy metal was born.

To PlayMadness: Zeppelin were the heaviest form of rock in their era but they were'nt heavy enough to be considered metal.

When it was started, heavy metal didn't need to be dark, downtuned, scary stuff. It was all about the guitars carrying the music, not the vocals.

And it was Ozzy, not Tony, who suggested scary music (according to both Iommi and Ozzy). They left a particularly unsuccessful gig and saw people flocking into a horror movie across the street, and they say Ozzy said, quote, "If people like horror movies, why not horror music?"
