Mr.Brown should be in the number 1 spot for inventing Funk, (his songwriter Ted Wright wrote a song to allow Brown's band to give a hint to their rthymic innovations with 'Out Of Sight'. Brown himself wrote 'Papa's Got A Brand New Bag' (Part 1) and his most famous song; ' I Got You (I Feel Good)' which later developed these innovations). It was with his 1967 hit 'Cold Sweat' (Part 1 and Part 2) with which Brown and his band would declare Funk as their own. This song was written by Brown and his saxophonist, Alfred Ellis. It dramitacally emphasised playing on the first beat of each bar (the song is in 4/4 time) and was melodically inspired by Miles Davis' earlier, equally radical composition 'So What' from his 1959 album 'Kind Of Blue'. This album, like Brown's composition, was innovative itself, as it layed the groundwork for a new sub-genre of jazz; 'Modal Jazz'.

Sorry but no. Thrash was created even before Metallica, probably by Freddie Mercury (Queen) - the song "Stone Cold Crazy", 1974. But if you are sceptical about Freddie/Queen, check out bands like Venom or Anvil. - Metal_Treasure
Creator of thrash metal back when he was in Metallica. - Songsta41
