Best Heavy Metal Bands of the 60szxm
The Top Ten
Though they released their albums in late 60s but they became very famous in short time - zxm
When I created the list, it wasn't meant for accurate heavy metal bands of 60s (which I should have stated in the description). But if you see, there were hardly any heavy metal bands in the 60s. The bands which were formed in the 60s, but never performed, I tried to avoid them. for example - Judas Priest. this list was basically about heaviest bands of 60s. Even though, today these genres like hard rock, heavy blues or psychedelic rock (heavier version), can't be considered as metal genres, but for the 60s, they were like death metal of the decade. That's why I included them. - zxm
I can't say much bad about the whole list. Since this is origins of heavy metal, Blue Cheer floats near the top.

The song is proto-metal but still they were one of the hardest rock bands of 1960s - zxm
Not really metal, and really belong in the 70s.
I know they didn't release albums in 60s, but some of the songs were recorded in the 60s. That's why I though they could be here. - zxm
