Thumbs up: +20
This is a mix of my personal favourite 60's and 70's hard rock/metal songs and the more influential ones, songs that I think every metal fan need to hear. A mix of the most well-known songs to totally obscure stuff. If you think I have missed some important song you can always suggest me.

No UFO? They were great in the 70s
No Cream? Influential band, awesome blues rock.
No Wishbone Ash? They were great in the 70s as well.
Free would deserve a mention as well, even Bad Company.
No Hendrix??

Wishbone Ash is a hard rock band, with proggish influences in places (especially on Pilgrim and Argus), one of the first twin guitar bands. They were an influence on Steve Harris and Iron Maiden.
Hendrix and Early Clapton were an influence on a tone of hard rock and metal guitarists, they deserve a mention just for that reason.
As for UFO, any song from their third album (first one with Schenker on guitar) will do.

I think of most of the songs I chose with those bands as closer to metal than the bands mentioned above, with the exception of ufo. At least Summertime Blues borders metal, although Blue Cheer as a whole isn't exactly metal. But I will add one ufo song. If you have any suggestion of some heavier song by the other bands you can suggest me.

I have added songs by Cream, Hendrix and Ufo. I will re-listen to Wishbone Ash to choose one song. But did Free have had that big impact, and if so, can you recommend me a song to check out?

Probably, he must be influenced from Metal - A Headbanger's Journey and put Blue Cheer on Heavy Metal chart.

Ever heard of a band called Nazareth? Their album Hair Of The Dog was quite good. I hear the title track at metal shows all the time. Also think stuff like Boston, Kansas and Grand Funk Railroad would look good on here.

Yes, I know Nazareth. I have added that song.

GFR: I have never been a fan of that band, but I think they could fit in to the list, but if so I need you to recommend a specific song, because I have not found any I felt for.

Boston and Kansas: I'm not sure if they really belong here, but if you suggest me specific songs I will see if I add them.

Oh, easily We're An American Band. It's a classic. I'm not sure how influential, if at all, they were on metal, but that song is probably the best thing they've done. In addition, Rob Zombie himself covered it on his latest album. In the risk of sounding cheesy, it's one of those songs that just feels metal, if you get what I mean.

Boston would definitely have something off their first album, which is also a classic. Maybe something like Smokin' would work. Or even More Than A Feeling. I recommend the former, but it's up to you.

Kansas' most popular being Carry On, Wayward Son, I'd go for that. But I can see why you wouldn't want to add them.

On that note, I also recommend The Kinks "You Really Got Me", Blackfoot's "Train Train", Ted Nugent's "Cat Scratch Fever" or "Stranglehold" and the Sex Pistols' "God Save The Queen".

That was released in 1973, and at that time metal had progressed further, so I doubt it is so relevant for metal. I think some song from their first two albums would be more fitting, since at that time there were not so many that heavy bands.

Except for Kinks, I don't think any of these songs have had any relevance for metal. They were released the last half of the 70's, and at that time Judas Priest were releasing albums.

That doesn't make them metal.

And personally I think that "Summertime Blues" is more metal than any Led Zeppelin song, not than "Highway Star", but than most Deep Purple songs. UFO is probably the most metallic out of these bands, since they weren't equally blues-based. Still I don't find them heavy enough to be labelled metal, perhaps some of their songs could be accepted as such. Ufo is also the band out of them I like the least, I have always found their melodies too simple and generally uninteresting. My favourite tracks by Ufo are Love To Love and Only You Can Rock Me, but they are not their more metallic. I can see they had a big influence on metal, but many of the bands that were influenced by them were doing their thing better, for example Europe, which was one of my first favourite bands, has mentioned Ufo as their biggest influence for their early albums. What makes Europe so much better is that they have so much more talent for melodies, and also has a way more interesting singer. I most say though that both bands had great guitarists.

And you can't be serious calling The Final Countdown metal?

This is only a 70's "Pop List" for amateurs, nothing apecial at all.

What do you mean with "only a 70's "Pop List" for amateurs"?

Such as telling people you think everyone should listen to One-Direction as they are the best band in 2014....but I think they're shit !

I think what God Buster meant is that by making a list with songs that should be listened to just because they are influential and somehow got to be widely known among the metal/rock scene in a certain way compares to what media does nowadays, like imposing that people listen to the on top mainstream bands just because they received prizes and such stuff. Hence he does the One Direction comparison.

But I must say that I have also listed more obscure bands like Supernaut, Sudden Death, Iron Claw, Bedemon, Zane, Sorcery etc. How many people here (except for Marcel and probably a few others) do know of all of them?
