186.  Blue Cheer

Many entries on this list discuss Heavy Metal acts and whether the genre will receive long term respect from the Hall. Should that happen, we wonder if one of the bands that get credit for popularizing it, Blue Cheer may get a look from Cleveland.

For every person who stated that Blue Cheer was a Proto Metal band, you will likely find one that states that they were basically a Psychedelic Band. What is difficult to dispute is that Blue Cheer was a band that was just plain louder than anyone else before them and as such had a quality about them just seemed “harder” than others before them. For the last two years of the 60’s, Blue Cheer was at their best, playing their brand of “Stoned Out” Rock which may not have been the most commercially viable, but it did inspire a lot of musicians to crank it up in a manner of speaking.
