The 50 Heaviest Songs Before Black Sabbath — Songs 40 to 31
37: Bunker Hill, “The Girl Can’t Dance” (1963)
It’s always guitar players that are given credit with first making use of distortion, but it’s clear that Bunker Hill was pushing the levels to the max on this roaring cut from the early Sixties, backed by none other than Link Wray & The Raymen.
36: Creedence Clearwater Revival, “Fortunate Son” (1969)
On its musical merits alone, this song may not have made the list at all, but was there anything heavier than John Fogerty’s voice in the late Sixties?
