No ‘Best Heavy Metal Albums’ list would be complete without ‘Paranoid‘ by Black Sabbath.
The album took the top spot on the UK albums chart on this day in 1970, and remains a classic. Its title track was the first single Black Sabbath wrote, and is instantly recognisable by the fuzzy guitars and Ozzy Osbourne‘s amazing voice.
Today is also Sharon Osbourne‘s 66th birthday, so this is rather fitting.
Playing this song at anything less than full volume is unacceptable. You have been warned.
