`Is Led Zeppelin or the Beatles responsible for Heavy Metal ? Same could be said about Black Sabbath. The first so categorized band, as being Heavy Metal. If I remember correctly, from the Rock Mags of yesteryear sold everywhere in New York.City. Now the merit for this goes to Led Zeppelin since the 80's and more recently to the Beatles. Which McCartney said so, as probably true.
We're far from the right authority to ask on this matter (as much as we love metal!). You that the invention of the lightbulb could be credited to 23 different people besides Edison? Works the same way here

Who is responsible for the creation of Heavy Metal ? The Beatles , Led Zeppelin, or Black Sabbath ? In your opinion. All of these bands, in backwards of chronological order. As the ones who were first responsible for spurring Heavy Metal. Or all three ? I don't have my own opinion but have to listen to McCartney, even though, I knew from NYC Rock mags, that this merit went to Black Sabbath.Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds responded on 10/24/2015
