The Top Ten

1 Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell - The Stooges

It's heavier than any of the '70s punk rock songs for sure... - somekindofaguy

2 Children of the Grave - Black Sabbath

Those riffs makes earthquakes. - somekindofaguy

3 Kick Out the Jams - Mc5

One of the songs that started it all... - somekindofaguy

4 Highway Star - Deep Purple

One of the earliest speed metal songs with really heavy vocals by Ian Gillan. - somekindofaguy

5 Kill the King - Rainbow

I think this song is pretty extreme - very aggressive, fast and loud, esp. when Dio screams " Oh, kill
Oh, kill". - Metal_Treasure

6 Dissident Aggressor - Judas Priest
7 Into the Void - Black Sabbath
8 Demolición - Los Saicos

Not really extreme by today's standards, but extreme for 1964. - somekindofaguy

9 No Feelings - Sex Pistols

Really raw, wild & extreme punk rock - somekindofaguy

10 I Got a Right - The Stooges

Raw hardcore punk from 1972 (released in 1977) - somekindofaguy

The Contenders

11 Damned Flame - Blast

A song which is similar to Motörhead's Ace of Spades, only 7 years before (1973) - somekindofaguy

12 Black Night - Deep Purple

The beginning riff is bluesy, but you can hear a thrashy riff under the lyrics. And the vocals are really agressive on this. - somekindofaguy

13 California Uber Alles - Dead Kennedys

Late '70s hardcore punk - somekindofaguy
