You might be misunderstanding. I'm not talking about who did it first, but rather who was the first band I personally heard do it. I'd never even heard the song Rumble 25 years ago when I first heard Window Paine. It's possible I'm actually thinking of Led Zeppelin, who are yet another band that do that (in the middle of How Many More Times), but I still think there's a Hendrix song that does it too.
