Top Ten Rock/Metal Songs that are the First of Their Subgenres
The Top Ten
Yes I very much agree with this song as first thrash metal song. Cause you said on the list "Top Ten Early Song Examples for Metal Genres" that Symptom of the Universe was the first thrash metal song. I got little bit of confused with your comment back then. - zxm
This song doesn't seem like a speed metal song to me. However I remember once you said Stone Cold Crazy was the first speed metal song. But I'd choose between Fireball or Highway Star. - zxm
Released in '77 but it was recorded in '72, so it's technically hardcore punk even before the punk itself.
Stargazer by Rainbow also deserves to be here. - zxm
@zxm Stargazer is more like trad. heavy metal. A Light in the Black is more power metal, but it's heavier than typical power metal so it's classified as speed metal.
Debatable... - BlueTelegraph
I don't think there's anything like this much earlier. - JoLeKosovo
