* UrExample: ThinLizzy and Budgie were two of the first bands to play fast HeavyMetal, thus serving as templates for the movement. ThinLizzy, along with Wishbone Ash, also helped popularize the twin harmonized guitar sound popular with NWOBHM bands. There's also the Music/{{Queen}} song "Stone Cold Crazy" and the DeepPurple song "Highway Star," which served as the predecessors of SpeedMetal.

Music/JudasPriest, a band from Birmingham, the same city that produced Music/BlackSabbath and later Music/NapalmDeath, was that band. In 1978, after several high quality but Sabbath-derived albums, they released their album ''Stained Class''. The album was dissimilar to pretty much any metal album that came before it, possessing high-speed tempoes, air-tight double-bass drumming patterns, and a level of aggression not seen outside Music/PunkRock. A second band at around the same time, Music/{{Motorhead}}, combined an approach similar to that of Judas Priest and wed it to a brutal, distortion-heavy sound that was overtly punk-influenced on their albums ''Motörhead'' in 1977, and ''Bomber'' and ''Overkill'' in 1979. With the approaches of these bands in place, other bands began to copy them.

* EndOfAnEra: In a way, the movement served as the last time that the UnitedKingdom would serve as the main player in RockMusic and HeavyMetal, a position it held since the BritishInvasion. While the UK would later go on to host the main scenes of Oi![=/=]StreetPunk, D-Beat[=/=]Crust Punk, {{Grindcore}} (at least for a little while), and {{Britpop}}, it would never again be so central to Rock as a whole as it was in TheSixties/[[TheSeventies Seventies]].

(One could make an argument that British bands have had a disproportionate influence on IndieRock, but that's sort of its own thing.)
