Here is why I would say Blue Cheer is the best than I like all the music artists I like the best the same besides if the artist made a few releases since it is like one studio album but another or two. BC from the beginning was the hardest music artist that is not Heavy metal or influence by Heavy metal. BC is like messy, fuzzy (as in not clear and straight playing) and use lots of distortion that not other artists used and played hardest at it. When BC did the harder Rock music no one did it harder than BC besides from other larger Rock subgenres that is not Rock or Rock N' Roll. I know BC did softer Rock music from the Gary Lee Yoder days (which was after the third studio album) though it was not catchy and soft as other softer Rock artists and was harder than other softer Rock artists. BC along with others like AC/DC and Motorhead did not went downhill as getting old just like underground artists does not. BC played all kinds of feels on Rock music besides super soft and even did soft tracks. I know the lead singer lose his voice as the lead singer got older but it works for the lead singer and the older voice fits in the music. It is just a voice anyways. The second lead singer of AC/DC still sings well at the last album like the lead singer used too and the newer AC/DC music did not went downhill.

If others can like a different music artist better than The Beatles and Jimi Hendrix thought other musicians/people like Terry Kath from Chicago was a better guitar player than him than I can like BC the best.

I know other artists did not do the type of Psychedelic rock early BC did. You can still say BC is the best. There is still other Psychedelic rock and Hard rock artists just not like early BC. There is even other harder Psychedelic rock artists in the underground of late 60s/early 70s like BC but not as hard like Fields (1969), Morgen and May Blitz. BC just happen to be the best and do music better than everyone else. That is why no one can not do the sound early BC did and that it is not in them. You can also think like this. If that sound early BC did is better than anything else, you could just not need more artists like it since BC is too good that you would just need that little that only BC had. BC just makes the best music though anyway even in the 80s and after too.

The Beatles may influence Rock music first though BC took a step further and gave the hard feel. TB was also really influence by Bob Dylan and The Byrds. Other artists back than also really influence Rock music from the beginning like The Rolling Stones, The Byrds and The Beach Boys. Others than did next too like The Who, Jimi Hendrix and Cream. Without BD or even The Byrds would TB still play like early 60s Rock then like they did! TB may not even start making the later 60s Rock as soon as they did without BD, even The Byrds or do it until a little later. TB would of at least be a little late with changing with Rock music by like having one or two more early Rock albums. It does not mean we would have less later Rock albums by TB since TB started to want to do more their type of music when the more later Rock music started to come. BC did not need JH to make Hard rock music from the early days. That was just from the time and type of music BC was doing. BC along with JH, Cream, TRS, and TW all influence Hard rock from the start. The two albums after 1969 when Leigh Stephens left even prove it and the fact that TRS and TW did not need jH or Cream to be influence by to make the later Rock music.

The first two Blue Cheer albums are shown in the wrong order. Vincebus Eruptum (January, 1968) is their first album and Outside/Inside (August, 1968), is the second one released.
