Montrose. Montrose is right. Their debut album was the first heavy metal gold album in history.

Jimi Hendrix arguably re-invented rock and roll itself.

That's enough for me.

What about Helter Skelter by The Beatles?

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

That may be the real grandfather tune--just saw TTB play that one last month.

Queen pioneered the sound in the early 70's.

Early records Queen I and II kinda prove it. The sound is unmistakeable.

Going to go with the artists who created and were influenced to create heavy metal.

Putting less credibility in a scripted television show but Sopranos is right about a lot in life so...

Not even sure that the bands themselves have ever claimed the genre.

"Heavy Metal" the term invented by Lester Bangs according to a few sources, who knew?
