You could agree that a lot of funk, soul, jazz can be tricky to distinguish, couldn't you?

You're focusing too much on the distorted guitar thing. There's a very distinct difference between a punk riff and a metal riff. Metal riffing usually employs a lot of picking, whereas punk riffs are usually just strumming. Hardcore is different, but 99% of hardcore bands could easily be classified as metal bands as well.
Uh I don't see how I was, just one comparison. Either way, distorted guitars are a big part of what makes Metal anyway. Punk riffs are played differently from Metal riffs mostly yes, I agree, but they can sound very similar. Loud, aggressive, fast. It has more to do than distortion.

Yet another thread on the most over-asked question at Musicbanter.

Yawn.

Definitely. To me, soul has a bigger emphasis on vocals, it's roots lie in doo-wop and even earlier vocal groups like the Ink Spots from the 30s. Funk, like jazz, has a higher emphasis on rhythm.

Distortion is just really common criteria.

Since then though and largely with thrash and extreme metal, metal has largely become more abrasive and more diverse than it ever was.
Though I was being sarcastic, I know this.
