Who was the first band to incorporate screaming vocals?
There were a lot of great screaming bands during the Cro-Magnon era but none of them got a recording contract. They were too far ahead of their time.

While not as harsh as Cromagnon:



Sounds like hardcore vocals to me.

Here's a better example of Gerry Rosalie's screaming vocals in my opinion - pretty much on the level of Little Richard in his prime. This was from 1965.

Their cover of "Keep a Knockin' " is among one of the best.



Now for a prime example of classic extreme R&B shouting from the classic days, I think this ranks among the Top 3 in my book, and I also feel a major influence on Rosalie's killer vocal style.



Getting back to Punk/Garage Punk, this one-shot single from The Grifs shows that the singer must have had some major damage to his vocals. I keep coming back to this song, but ever since checking this on a Back From the Grave collection, I'm seriously hooked.



Very extreme for the time.

Although Middle Class has the distinction of having what's called the First Hardcore record back in 1978, I feel that for this section, I can point to Minor Threat as being the solid standard for screaming in Hardcore. The Minor Threat EP was originally released in 1981.



Black Flag also set a major standard of vocals with screaming rage. The most influential era was their Damaged era with Henry Rollins. The album was released in 1981.


X Ray Spex seriously stood their ground with this classic feminist Punk Classic. Poly Styrene turns John Lydon's great vocals into just pure whines by comparison.




Maybe not the first band all together, but possibly the first Oi! band to make a serious influence on that scene, and one that made screaming vocals a standard for it. 1981.


Maybe not exactly screaming, but Crass' messages were pointed out to the listener by some of the most influential shouting in Punk. First released recording, 1978; this song, 1981.


Throbbing Gristle started around 1976 - this is a 1980 performance that showed that despite not being well known (at the time), they had an effect on those who heard them. Not everything was a screamer, but they were intense.


1980 saw the legendary Einsturzende Neubauten unleash their sound for the first time. Blixa Bargeld's shout turned into an influence with many singers.

You know I wish it would allow me to edit my stupid question I'm meaning what was the FIRST BAND TO INCORPORATE ALL SCREAMING INTO ALL OF THEIR LYRICS I don't need to know about bands that were in the day that the term cutting a rug was a common saying for dancing. I'm meaning what band influenced people like Pantera to scream and growl with their lyrics. Not literally just scream but to growl and scream the lyrics to the song. You know who were the pioneers of that genre of vocals?

If you're talking about heavy music with screaming (as opposed to blues music that may have incorporated screaming), the oldest I know of would be Cromagnon, who have already been mentioned. As for punk music, I'm sure it was screamy right from about '76 onwards.
