HARD ROCK SONG: Hard rock is a form of loud, aggressive rock music. The electric guitar is often emphasised, used with distortion and other effects, both as a rhythm instrument using repetitive riffs with a varying degree of complexity, and as a solo lead instrument. Drumming characteristically focuses on driving rhythms, strong bass drum and a backbeat on snare, sometimes using cymbals for emphasis. The bass guitar works in conjunction with the drums, occasionally playing riffs, but usually providing a backing for the rhythm and lead guitars. Vocals are often growling, raspy, or involve screaming or wailing, sometimes in a high range, or even falsetto voice.

Yup. Probably the Yardbirds like the OP said.
1965

Hard rock just needs the right kind of angst.

I would have just said Black Sabbath. Come on, it's got to be typified by really pumping 80's lyrics, too, like Def Leppard.

Not the earliest, but with solid rocking credentials it's worth a mention - the 1969 cover of a 1942 original:-

It just so happens that, in 1967, the Grateful Dead were considered to be a hard rock band. At least according to Harry Reasoner they were. Go to the 35-second mark:

Could it be they're breaking rocks as part of a chain gang or labourers hired to break stones for a road? In which case it would well be the first hard rock song recorded.

Rocking harder doesn't mean better. They still make the Stones look like Peter, Paul, and Mary.
