Nah. That song is not metal. It's hard rock. Black Sabbath's "Black Sabbath" is the first true metal song. Sure "Born to be Wild" has the lyric "heavy metal thunder" but even the Beatles' Helter Skelter is heavier than that song.

IMO, heavy metal band Lizzy Borden's cover of BTBW on "Decline of Western Civilization II: The Metal Years" is pretty good, and the lead singer sounds like Freddie in parts.
The Ozzy cover is hilarious too.                    

Goldmine, glad to know you feel that way. :P Metal just wouldn't be metal if it didn't offend anyone at all. ;)

The phrase Heavy Metal came from that song and it was heavy in those days. Your own taste or opinion aside, it is  internationally acclaimed as the first metal song.

And rumour has it that John Kay was talking about listening to Hendrix, so it's either Steppenwolf or Hendrix.   Listening to that old tripe now, Black Sabbath is something I would have a tough time calling "Hard" rock.   Their early music videos certainly don't reflect them being hard rockers or metal.  Just a 4 piece that looks down at the floor and plays power chords.

If Born To Be Wild is considered the first heavy metal song, then this genre would have dissolved into plain hard rock if Tony Iommi had not met with that accident in the factory.

@Saif - don't see you much around here lately...kahaan ho aaj kal bhai?

Heavy metal (often referred to simply as metal) is a genre of rock music that developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s, largely in the United Kingdom and the United States. With roots in blues-rock and psychedelic rock, the bands that created heavy metal developed a thick, massive sound, characterized by highly amplified distortion, extended guitar solos, emphatic beats, and overall loudness.
 Heavy metal lyrics and performance styles are generally associated with masculinity and machismo.

The first heavy metal bands such as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple
attracted large audiences, though they were often critically reviled, a status common throughout the history of the genre. In the mid-1970s Judas Priest helped spur the genre's evolution by discarding much of its blues influence; Motörhead introduced a punk rock sensibility and an increasing emphasis on speed. Bands in the New Wave of British Heavy Metal such as Iron Maiden followed in a similar vein. Before the end of the decade, heavy metal had attracted a worldwide following of fans known as "metalheads" or "headbangers".

I'm not a big fan of Sabbath, I only really like the Dio albums but their song "Black Sabbath" shows the beginnings of 'doom metal'. When Dio came in, BS went from being an ambiguously metal band to an unambiguously metal one.

Nice cut-and-paste, Mrs. Bad Guy, but you failed to dig deeper.  Wikipedia is good, but you have to understand ANYBODY can type that information in.

If you must really know, Hendrix was doing that to the guitar BEFORE Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, and Deep Purple.

Here's some more wikipedia facts about Jimi:

He was one of the first to experiment with stereophonic and phasing effects for rock recording.


Hendrix often favored raw overdriven amplifiers with high gain and treble and helped develop the previously undesirable technique of guitar amplifier feedback


Hendrix was one of the musicians who popularized the wah-wah pedal in mainstream rock which he often used to deliver an exaggerated pitch in his solos


Hendrix affected popular music with similar profundity; along with earlier bands such as The Who and Cream, he established a sonically heavy yet technically proficient bent to rock music as a whole, significantly furthering the development of hard rock and paving the way for heavy metal.

I'm just saying that Black Sabbath didn't do something groundbreaking, as they're acredited to by some.  Good band, but certainly no pioneers.
