I am proposing Grupa SOS's inclusion to the Archives as a historical exception. Years ago, I attempted to submit them based off their 1974 single, Tražim / Magnovenje. Despite being an early example of Sabbath worship, I believe it was rejected for being one metal single among a couple other non-metal ones. Not to compare bands/cases, but by using this logic, Ash's inclusion would be questionable as well since their first single is pop. While Grupa SOS's last single is pop, their first one from 1973 includes some hard and heavy riffing, more similar to Budgie and Deep Purple than Sabbath. Attached are samples to both the '73 and '74 singles for consideration. Thanks.

That's more like heavy psych rock than metal, which is also what the blacklist says.
