Great band (for about 4 albums anyways) but not really punk.

the true bombast was bloated prog rock, not sabbath man.

I AGREE. War pigs, electric funeral and hand of doom are actually the first rock metal punk songs recorded. Punk in the feel and attitude, angst-rock metal doom in sound, and the sirens at the beginning of war pigs sounds like an introduction to a punk album. Alot of angst against those who have power that screw with or screw over mostly the fellow man, and women and children. We just want whats right in the world, we don't need their crap.

The first punk album was White Light/White Heat. That’s my timeline. Period.

Also I don’t think there’s anything punk about Sabbath. There are certainly similarities between metal and punk, but... no. Paranoid was not the first punk album. Or a punk album.

There are plenty of savage teenage garage 45s pre WL/WH by many years that are extremely "punk" in spirit and sound.
I believe Suicide were the first to refer to their music as "punk" on a show poster circa 71.

I know, but I think WL/WH cemented whatever was floating around in the periphery of the zeitgeist at the time. Took the Stooges and Ramones and Suicide and Pistols and blah blah to really hammer it into what it became, but fuck man... I can think of virtually no songs that are more “punk” in sound and spirit than “Sister Ray.”

Whatever. Long as you don’t think it was Paranoid.

I heard punk was first used in ref to NY Dolls. Not saying Clone is wrong (I expect he is right) , just comparing scraps of info.

Anyone who thinks Paranoid is the first Punk record needs a punch in the head.

If yr going down the route of calling proto-punk stuff punk (cf Velvet Underground) which it isn't anyway, I see yr White Light/White Heat and raise you a Churchmice "Babe We're not a Part of Society".

But Savage Clone is talking about proto-punk stuff too. Honestly, anything that was punk before punk was a thing is proto-punk, so the first punk album either has to be proto-punk by necessity or we’re talking about something else. Like, the the first album to be referred to as punk or the first band to refer to itself as punk are both very different from the first punk album.

Anyway, I respect your opinions and stuff, but I’m still going with WL/WH after years of careful consideration. Not only because of the song structure or attitudes or the gazillion punk bands that were influenced by it, but also because of the decisions made on the album with respect to presentation, mixing, mastering, etc. There was a deliberate effort on behalf of the musicians to unsettle and disquiet, both sonically and lyrically. There was corrosive quality to the music that dared people to listen to it, and even the chill moments are filled with really bizarre and risqué stories and themes.

WL/WH is the first album I can think of where a band with any amount of buzz or interest (however small) decided to do pretty much everything they could to piss off an alienate people. Title track alone is mixed like a spider drowning in cotton candy. Last track is 17 minutes of two-chord mayhem. ‘S’fucking punk, man.

Again, just my take.

(It isn't the 1st punk album, obviously, but a lot of jazz from that era seemed to have more punk spirit than plenty of albums that are considered to be.)
