I didn’t know that heavy metal has been with us for a long time. All along, I thought it was born sometime in the 1980s. The mere mention of performers like Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin would give us the hint that heavy metal was in the air in the 1970s or maybe earlier. The song Born To Be Wild of Steppenwolf was a pioneering heavy metal with the sound of the electric guitar. Well, I think heavy metal is here to stay despite the popularity of the modern pop genre.
