Helter Skelter and even Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey, both on the White Album. An argument can be made that the Tielman Brothers invented heavy metal posturing. There is just too many little things that pre-dated Sabbath to say they started the genre.
That's my point though, there's always an evolution of sound but no one in their right mind would ever say "Helter Skelter" was a metal song. 
How could you NOT call it a metal song? Heavy fuzz and distortion, Sir Paul screaming his ass off. Covered and featured prominently in their live sets by Aerosmith and Motley Crue. It had a distinctive riff that went beyond psychedelic meandering. By far it was Ringo's heaviest and hardest hitting performance. It's a song so heavy Charlie and Family went out to kill for it.
