The 50 Heaviest Songs Before Black Sabbath: #20-11

19 - Blue Cheer, "Summertime Blues" (1968)
This track is often cited as the first heavy metal song, but while this blistering cover of Eddie Cochran’s 1958 classic certainly does turn the volume up to 11 (especially for 1968), we don’t think it’s the first or heaviest song of the era.
