Top Ten Heavy Songs by Not Heavy Musicians
The Top Ten
One of their earliest songs with Gilmour, and they didn't released heavier songs than this after they released this (1969)
An early prototype of thrash metal!
This is a metal song for me - it came out in 1982. Gary Moore was mostly a blues/blues rock musician known for songs like "Still Got The Blues" and "Empty Rooms". It's a very big contrast. - Metal_Treasure
A really Black Sabbath alike riff by a folk rock musician...
@visitor I'm sure this song is based on blues, but if you watch the title better, I said HEAVY songs, not Heavy METAL songs... not every heavy music are metal!
He mostly played simply blues rock songs with psychedelic elements, but this one is sounds like closer to the heavy psych!
SKOG: I'm not the one who needs to be paying attention. You said Hendrix "mostly played blues rock songs with psychedelic elements," but claim he wasn't a "heavy musician." Really don't know what you're talking about, and pretty sure you don't, either.
SKOG: What is heavy metal. How do you define it.V 3 Comments
Yeah when I discovered this song around 2 months ago it rocked my mind!
The only metal Sweet song!
The doomiest Beatles song...
A 1983 song that is very close to power metal, and is over 7 minutes long - coming from a blues/blues rock musician. - Metal_Treasure
They are a family pop group, but they released this great hard rock song!
Yer kidding', right? Lightweight pop that just happens to be based on a Hooker riff.
This is a metal song, even though they aren't metal. - zxm
He's a folk-rock singer. but this song is a hard rock song. - zxm
T.Rex is very poppy, and this song is poppy enough, but the riff changes everything... it's a protopunk song!
I agree Led Zeppelin have heavy songs but I don't think they are eligible for this list: this list is about music artists that aren't heavy in general. But Led Zeppelin have always been mentioned among the heaviest bands of their era and this is the reason they shouldn't be on this list. - Metal_Treasure
I though, by "not heavy" you meant non-metal bands. - zxm
All right, I can agree Led Zeppelin is not a metal band. but this song is heavy. - zxm
@zxm sorry but I disagree with this many LZ songs you added. 3/4 of the LZ songs can call to heavy, even some people think they are metal. I wanted add only songs by bands that aren't HEAVY, not that they aren't HEAVY METAL.
Not a metal song, but this song is heavy. plus guess what, green day has never been a metal band. not even hard rock band. - zxm
Oh, I knew it released in '71, but I though it was recorded in '69. guess I was wrong. - zxm
Quite a heavy song for a 60s song. the riff proves that. plus Robert Plant's singing is also powerful - zxm
@zxm it was released in 1971, so it's not a '60s song...
This song is quite heavy. not metal. punk-rock style. but kinda heavy. - zxm
