Surf Music

Surf music artists created the technique of tremolo picking that is currently used in black metal.  The fast pace and chord structure also helped to influence hardcore punk and thrash.  The dissonance and rapid fire singing of bands like The Trashmen were a major influence on grindcore and powerviolence.

Artists include Dick Dale, The Ventures, The Chantays, and The Surfaris
