Pioneers of Heavy Metal? Blue Cheer

I was not really familiar with this band (well in name). I had heard their version of Summertime Blues but did not know it was them. Any way it is claimed that they are the Pioneers of Heavy Metal. They pre-date Black Sabbath.

Here is a quote from Wikipedia

""Blue Cheer was an American psychedelic blues-rock band that initially performed and recorded in the late 1960s and early 1970s and was sporadically active until 2009. Based in San Francisco, Blue Cheer played in a psychedelic blues-rock style, and is also credited as being pioneers of heavy metal (their cover of "Summertime Blues" is sometimes cited as the first in the genre[2]), punk rock,[3] stoner rock,[4][5] doom metal,[5][6] experimental rock,[7] and grunge.[8] According to Tim Hills in his book, The Many Lives of the Crystal Ballroom,[9] "Blue Cheer was the epitome of San Francisco psychedelia." Jim Morrison of The Doors called the group, "The single most powerful band I've ever seen"



They do have a pretty heavy sound as it seems for the 60's
