Calling me an ignorant cretin for asking you to explain your comment earns you a diddums.
I called you an ignorant cretin for being confrontational and rude,as you well know.
You seem slightly obsessed with baby language: has there been a new addition to the family recently or do people normally talk like that where you come from?
Anyway, your original quote was:
Black Sabbath - (band/album/song) - 'ooh we just invented Heavy Metal'.
To which you now wish to add
but none of them put the tunes, the imagery and more importantly the commercial success together in a package [.. like B.S. did].
Makes no difference however,because Black Sabbath did not invent Heavy Metal:
In 1968 Blue Cheer released a cover of Eddie Cochran's classic "Summertime Blues", from their debut album Vincebus Eruptum, that many consider the first true heavy metal recording. Steppenwolf released its self-titled debut album, including "Born to Be Wild", which refers to "heavy metal thunder" in describing a motorcycle. The Yardbirds' "Think About It"(from the 1967 Yardbirds album "Little Games")—B-side of the band's last single—with a performance by guitarist Jimmy Page; and Iron Butterfly's In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, with its 17-minute-long title track, a prime candidate for first-ever heavy metal album.
The Jeff Beck Group, : Truth featured some of the "most molten, barbed, downright funny noises of all time," breaking ground for generations of metal ax-slingers. 1968 Led Zeppelin, made its live debut. The Beatles' White Album, included "Helter Skelter", then one of the heaviest-sounding songs ever released by a major band. The Pretty Things' rock opera S.F. Sorrow, released in 1968, featured "proto heavy metal" songs such as "Old Man Going" and "I See You". In 1968 MC5, developed a raw distorted style that has been seen as a major influence on the future sound of both heavy metal and later punk music. The Stooges also began to establish and influence a heavy metal and later punk sound, with songs such as "I Wanna Be Your Dog", featuring pounding and distorted heavy guitar power chord riffs.In 1968 Pink Floyd released two of their heaviest and loudest songs to date; "Ibiza Bar" and "The Nile Song", which was regarded as "one of the heaviest songs the band recorded".
1969, In July, Zeppelin and a power trio with a Cream-inspired, but cruder sound, Grand Funk Railroad, played the Atlanta Pop Festival. That same month, another Cream-rooted trio led by Leslie West released Mountain, an album filled with heavy blues rock guitar and roaring vocals. In August, the group—now itself dubbed Mountain—played an hour-long set at the Woodstock Festival.Grand Funk's debut album, On Time, also came out that month. In August 1969 Led Zeppelin II went to number 1 and the album's single "Whole Lotta Love" hit number 4 on the Billboard pop chart.
Black Sabbath formed in 1969 and didn't release anything until 1970.
Quite obviously to claim Black Sabbath " just invented Heavy Metal "
is not only completely wrong but does considerable disservice to the bands mentioned above.
Sabbath played a large part but to make the claim that you do is er..ignorant.
