I think that it was, because it was the first song to have such a beat and feeling about it.

Yes, I think it was. Even though it wasnt made by a meatl rock band [It was originally by the beatles right? Makin sure] it was one of my favorite songs from them, and my only favorite metal song.

I chose yes cause I truly believe it was the first.

I asked for it. This is what I wanted.

No, this song is hard rock at most. The first heavy metal song was Black Sabbath by Black Sabbath:

Metal_25 : Maybe so, but this is "first" metal song, not strongest.

Anyways, I'll say maybe, only because I don't like metal music, and this isn't my favorite Beatles song, so it's a possibility. But The Beatles weren't really metal, but maybe this inspired the "Angry Music" with the whole Charles Manson thing. Very interesting, and definately a possibility. The Beatles also inspired a lot of different types of music, so it's possible. But it's not exactly certain.

It's very complicated. XD

I'm surprised I haven't found this thread yet, seeing as it was made almost a month ago. And I am obviously Vizzed's #1 Beatles Fan. =D

Robert7 : But the Beatles song isn't even heavy metal. It just isn't really that heavy. It has somewhat of an amount of heaviness, but that is only enough for it to be hard rock. The first band to play an actual heavy metal song was Black Sabbath and anything else before was just a slight prototype that would truly fall under hard rock, acid rock, classic rock, psychedelic rock, etc. And that song I linked was far from being the heaviest.

Metal_25 : But you don't understand: the FIRST metal song. Even if it's not heavy, we're talking first.

For instance, Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first airplane. Even though it only flew for 12 seconds, it was the first airplane.

What are you two talking about ? Heavy metal is the full name for "metal"... Again, the Beatles song is hard rock at most.

Robert7 : It's close, but I like Helter Skelter a bit more. I wouldn't even say that Helter Skelter is my favorite either, but Get Back is probably it.

Metal_25 : No it isn't, silly guy named metal...

alexanyways : Are you kidding me, of course it is. I think you are confusing the word "heavy" with "extreme". Neither the Beatles nor Black Sabbath song are extreme metal, though (although Black Sabbath's first three albums were the proto-type for doom metal).

OzzyE5150 : But, Black Sabbath is a band, not a song. I bet you Black Sabbath wouldn't exist if it weren't for the tone of Helter Skelter.

alexanyways : I meant the first song, on their first record, called...black sabbath
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEoN5Nx4u0w&feature=related)
Of course their basic influences are The Beatles,Cream,Led Zeppelin and the blues. There were heavy songs before black sabbath that had this almost-metal feeling (check the vincebus erruptum album by blue cheer), but the first real metal record is the first Black Sabbath -it's a fact in the metal community

Metal_25 : yeah, what I was tryin' to say was that the "if it wasn't for the tone of..." will lead us to classical music and then to the roots of music -it's just an endless chain
And finally, the first song combining all the characteristics of a metal song was Black Sabbath (or any other song on the album, this is just track#1 I think Wicked World was the first they wrote and it's the last track on the record!)

I think so. It had a somewhat heavy metal beat to it. It's also one of my favorite Beatles songs.
