    Bow before the GREATEST Band EVER - 49yrs ago

    49 years ago today, some hippy, dippy stoner walked into his local record store and asked "What's new?"

    The clerk hands him a album by a band he's never heard of...he takes it home, puts it on the turntable, sparks up, and when this dark, mystical sounds emerges from his speakers, his mind is blown!


    Released February 13, 1970, thereby inventing "heavy metal" and influencing countless garage bands that followed:

    You can argue there's a more influential band, but you'd be wrong. You DeadHeads and Beatles fans would disagree that Black Sabbath is the best band ever, but you'd also be wrong...All hail the greatest band EVER!



    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    oh yes!!!!

    I went out with this chick who told me she saw Sabbath with Ozzy. She was hot to begin with but that just put her in whole new different class.

    Zeppelin was a cover band. Black Sabbath rules.

    I just realized that I lack the energy to fight for this. Maybe thatís why Iím a longtime lurker here. I blame the booze. Flame away. Zepís better though.

    There are a bunch of way more influential bands than Black Sabbath.

    Velvet Underground
    Sex Pistols
    Kraftwerk

    I found this record in my moms stash and when I asked her about it, she said "Who?". So close mom. I think (hope) I still have it around somewhere as I took it at some point.

    Sabbath and Zeppelin had 2 entirely different styles and shouldn't even be considered in the same class. Zeppelin was a bluesy rock band that occasionally ventured into the metal genre. Sabbath was a metal band that occasionally ventured off into psychedelic rock and yes, even pop.

    Lets not over analyze this, both were very good at what they did.

    I like the original Sabbath line up. I liked Sabbath with Dio more. Vinnie Appice is a much better drummer than Bill Ward.

    Gotta say Rush from 2112 through Moving Pictures is hands down my favorite classic rock band. Throw in some Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. Vintage punk like Ramones and B-52s is great too.

    Zeppelin +1. Enjoying thread and figuring adding more fuel couldnít hurt. Iím definitely in the Led camp.

    Plus Zeppelin was a year or two earlier.

    Different genre entirely. Stop with the Zep shit. Not the same at all.

    Sabbath was so different from anything going at the time. To me that's what make them special. Zep was great, but they were an rocking blues band. Not metal.

    Best band EVER though? Come on, man.

    Zep and Sabbath both rule. As does the song Iron Man.

    Storytime: On the local public radio station there is a longtime DJ that is a little slower, a little older, a little naive, just not very "tuned in". A dude at the construction site calls in and asks for a request for some Black Sabbath. 20 minutes later she goes on-air and says "I got a request and I listened to an album called "we sold our soul for rock'n'roll". If they sold their soul for rock and roll, I don't think they got very much for it." We were dying of laughter.

    Tony Iommi lost the tips of two fingers in a factory accident before forming BS. He had to detune his guitar to continue playing, which resulted in the heavy sound of BS.

    So sometimes factory accidents are good!

    Years ago I worked with a female welder that was hot as shit and could lay dimes, she was a big sabbath fan. All day, everyday sabbath at the work station. Scorpions was heavy rotation also.

    I remember my first black sabbath listen. I was about 10 years old riding my bike around the neighbourhood. Ride past a house with an open garage with two hippy looking older kids jamming out and smoking. They said "hey kid, come here!". I cautiously approached up the driveway. They proceeded to jam out this album. I stayed and listened to the whole album, completely mesmerized. Got home smelling like smoke and got my ass chewed out. But the damage was done. I was hooked. This song still makes me lose my shit today.
