* First popular animated cartoon character? ''WesternAnimation/GertieTheDinosaur'', from the WorldWarI era. First animated cartoon with an episodic narrative? An adaptation of ''Film/LittleNemoInSlumberland'', done just before the war. First animated cartoon of ''any'' kind? [[BreadEggsMilkSquick A mosquito bites a man in his sleep and sucks up so much blood that it explodes.]] (That's right, ''WesternAnimation/ItchyAndScratchy'' did not invent {{Gorn}} in animated cartoons.)

** Although never a band, the lads and lasses at the [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBC_Radiophonic_Workshop BBC Radiophonic Workshop]] were messing about with all sorts of unbuilt electronic newness almost ten years before Kraftwerk or Whitenoise picked the ball up to play with. Including doing very interesting things with splicing, sampling and remixing, alongside all the finding melodic uses for the weirdest gizmos.

* GodwinsLaw: William Jennings Bryan, an opponent of the theory of evolution in the 1920s, argued that it would lead to [[TheSocialDarwinist social Darwinism]] like in ImperialGermany. Arguably a use of Godwin's law [[UnbuiltTrope that predates the Nazis themselves]].

They all have one. The Ur-Example is the oldest known example of any given trope. "Ur-" is a German prefix meaning "proto-, primitive, or original" as well as the location both in-universe and in reality for the earliest-known written story, Literature/TheEpicOfGilgamesh.

* Perhaps the Ur-Example of Speed Metal is Music/{{Queen}}'s 1974 song "Stone Cold Crazy", which has all the trademarks, just in rather primitive form. An even earlier candidate is "7 Screaming Diz-Busters", which was performed by BlueOysterCult on their 1973 ''Tyranny & Mutation'' album. Although "7 Screaming Diz-Busters" clearly owes more of a debt to psychedelic and folk-rock, toward the end of the song there is an insanely fast guitar riff that sounds a lot like what Music/{{Metallica}} would be doing a decade later.
