Okay, these guys are just plain noisy: Blue Cheer.

Blue Cheer's debut album "Vincebus Eruptum" is Latin for control of chaos. I can't think of a better way to describe this album. It is Heavy Metal, circa 1968. Just listen to "Parchment Farm", or their cover of Eddie Cochran's "Summertime Blues". You will find objects burst from the sonic power of this breakthrough album. This is not pretty; it is ugly and intense, so it is not for just anyone. If you like extremely loud music, however, you'll love it.
