Think giving Black Sabbath (the song) the credit for an entire genre seems a bit off. It wasn't like metal bands popped up on every corner the minute the song was released..


Well of course not, it was too ahead of it's time. And why would that matter anyway? Doesn't change the fact that it's still the greatest and most important metal song. Sooooooooo many future metal artists took something from that song. It is the very essence of the genre.

Definitely an important track within the style, but Paranoid (the song) was a far bigger hit and probably ultimately did more to popularize the genre


It was more popular due to it's simpler sound, but I dont see it as being a greater metal song at all. If anything, N.I.B. did the 'short upbeat catchy riff' thing first (and better).

I agree, and much of the groundwork for metal had been done before "Black Sabbath".


Irrelevant.
Black Sabbath was the turning point. It was the culmination of everything from the preceding years - Link Wray, The Kinks, Cream, Hendrix, The Who, etc. All those guys were hinting at it, but Sabbath were the ones who made it viable, into an entity of it's own.
I don't know a single metal artist who doesn't consider Sabbath's debut to be the first metal album.

It was a turning point. There were other turning points both before them and after them. Some consider them the first metal artist and some don't, but regarding influence, it doesn't even matter. Whether or not they're the first metal artist is just a question of how things are labeled. Either way, they made innovations that were followed by others, and thus were influential. But the part of the post that you didn't quote was the most important part:

Also, BS doesn't have very much going for it besides influence. I think including it on the list at all would be giving too much weight to influence. There are other influential songs that are also significant in other ways that are unlikely to be proposed for inclusion on this list.


This is a greatest songs list, not a most influential songs list.

Tutti-Frutti - Little Richard - It got played one day as an oldie on WABC - I think in late 1970. I then knew why I liked "Travelin' Band" so much, and where it came from.


Sounds closer to "Long Tall Sally" to me.

I'd say "Good Golly Miss Molly" but I just meant the whole LR style.

Just heard one of the most fucked up pop covers of an early rock and roll record ever.

Awesome. I mean, in a totally so-bad-it's-good way, but I dig that sort of thing.

I said the same exact thing.

It's so bad that it's good.

A Change Is Gonna Come is top 20.
Possibly even top 10.

I'd think something from Little Richard should make the top 20 as well.
Keep-A Knockin or Good Golly Miss Molly?
