It was "Rubber Soul" that inspired Wilson to compose "Pet Sounds".

"Pet Sounds" was released a few months BEFORE "Revolver", so it wouldn't have been possible for Brian to have been influenced by it.
"Paranoid is just like an anchor. It really secures everything about the metal movement in one record. It's all there: the riffs, the vocal performance of Ozzy, the song titles, what the lyrics are about. It's just a classic defining moment."
