It’s such a fucking loss. You go to a football game, you’re going to hear it. Buoyed by Ozzy and Rhoads, “I Don’t Know” moves at a breakneck clip for the first two-and-a-half minutes before suddenly taking a U-turn. “I’m not the Anti-Christ or the Iron Man,” Ozzy howls on this 2001 track. Tough to say, but elsewhere on the album, the Sabs asked “Am I Going Insane?”.

1970’s debut album (and the “Evil Woman” single) through 1978’s Never Say Die! He was one of them. The title remains a mystery nearly 40 years later. He’d just been kicked to the curb by Black Sabbath for being, as he put it in his 2010 autobiography, a “pissed, coked-up loser and a waste of time for everyone concerned.” His final album with the band, Never Say Die!, was a joke compared to their earlier work and an upstart Van Halen had just played Black Sabbath off the stage on their last tour. “It’s Alright” is a lovely piano-driven mid-tempo ballad featuring drummer Bill Ward on vocals. Sabbath saw that the drugs were taking over; this anthem isn’t about the weather, but rather about how cocaine is a hell of a drug, and it tends to be all-consuming.

I was smoking in them days, and then they had to follow me.

Or “Sharon Arden, Thelma Osbourne,” a combo of Ozzy’s former and current wife? It opens with an ominous synthesizer fit for a gothic cathedral and leads into Ozzy yelling “I want to know what you meant!” — an answer he knows he won’t be getting any time soon.

Like a lot of other songs on the Rick Rubin-produced album, it had a lot of sonic references to the band’s 1970 debut; in the case of this song, it bore quite a bit of resemblance to “Black Sabbath.”.

I remember seeing Eddie do that finger-tapping thing, and that was the first time I’d ever seen anyone do that.

The Ramones may not have gone down well with Black Sabbath’s fans, but on the title track to their final album with Ozzy (before their reunions), you could almost hear a “1-2-3-4!” In retrospect, the album’s title is ironic, given that both Ozzy and Bill would be out of the band in a few years. Geezer Butler told Guitar World that the song “was written as an afterthought. Check. Here, we decided to stick with songs from the Ozzy eras of the band. Daisley’s paranoid lyrics, combined with Ozzy’s eerie delivery, give this a demented Howard Hughes-not-leaving-his-room-for-months-on-end vibe. “War Pigs” -- with lyrics like “Generals gathered in their masses, just like witches at black masses” -- compared war to pure evil. It’s another song that inspired a great cover: Pantera even got mellow to record this one. The Rick Rubin-produced album had a very specific aim — to recapture the morbid blues vibe the band had channeled on their groundbreaking debut.

The song culminates with perhaps the Rhoads’ best solo, which sounds a bit like “Eruption” if it had been written and performed inside an abandoned English monastery. That thing with finger-tapping in the Eighties, with the hair bands, everybody was doing that finger tapping.

18. But the final movement -- “N.I.B.” -- had one of Tony Iommi’s most fearsome riffs. Finished. A bright spot on what many fans believe is an underwhelming and overly-produced album. Washed up. A moving strings arrangement and intro? The 14 minute-plus epic that brought the debut album to a close, it shows the band’s prog-rock influence, but it’s also one of the bluesiest songs in their cannon. And indeed, they did get back together decades later, but it was often without Ward. But it’s certainly the one that saved the band. You’ve got to put the emotion behind you, and Eddie had all that. That opened the door for Ozzy to go in on Swaggart and give us the simple, indelible “Miracle man got busted” chorus. It sure is.

They may not have lived through a war, but they knew what the aftermath looked like. 10. But not as good as the original. But they don’t get enough credit for their mellow side. “Goodbye to Romance” is a vintage breakup song — one that shows Ozzy is more than his Prince of Darkness alter ego. Instead, Ozzy and the band pick up where they left off a year earlier, with the singer letting everyone know the party was just getting started: “You don’t need a ticket to fly with me, I’m free.”. God only knows, what you have to do to get that good. And Van Halen were a force to be reckoned with. And the ugly: licking piss off the ground while on tour with Motley Crue, and, depending on who you ask, The Osbournes. Or you’d think so, at least, with Ozzy and CBS Records getting sued in 1985 for the song allegedly influencing a young man to commit suicide; the suit was later thrown out. Black Sabbath has never been big on covers, but their first single, “Evil Woman” is a cover by a little known band called Crow, from their 1969 album ‘Crow Music.’ Funny enough, the song didn’t sound nearly as evil as anything from Sabbath’s first few albums. What would 1980s metal be without Ozzy's solo hits, especially ones that go as hard as "Shot in the Dark"?
