Oh yea, can surely hear it in the early thrash songs. I know there was an amount of "new wave of British metal" that made it's way over here.

From a guitar standpoint as a former guitar instructor, I grew up on 50's to mostly 60's rock.
2 stand alone songs that had the first(s) distorted (grungy, loud and nasty) metal sounding songs were Keith Richards lead to the Stones "Satisfaction", and Eric Clapton in "Heart full of Soul" by the Yardbirds in 1965.
Worth noting? Jeff Beck replaced Eric Clapton who was later replaced by Jimmy Page. All were Yardbirds.The distorted and dirty loud sounding leads were soon able to be replicated by guitar pedal fx through clean normal amps.

I always thought that Punk was the untalented, social commentary music that rebelled against the prog and stadium rock dinosaurs of that era. Sort of like how grunge was the 'enuff' to hair metal in the early 90's.

seems like hardcore is kind of that crossover. Slayer, Suicidal Tendencies, DRI, Agnostic Front... Check out the book American Hardcore.
