To my knowledge, it was the first example of feedback being used on a pop record – or any record for that matter.  If you can find an earlier one, I’d like to know about it.  This #1 song from the American [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Beatles[/lastfm] ’65 album was unlike anything else that came before, and opened the door for[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Jimi Hendrix[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]The Who[/lastfm], and others to let feedback become part of the music.  But was it planned or just an accident that worked?
