If you need help remembering what Black Sabbath songs Ozzy sang on, click on the following links for the track listings of his each of his albums with the band: Black Sabbath, Paranoid, Master Of Reality, Vol. 4, Sabbath Bloody Sabbath, Sabotage, Technical Ecstasy and Never Say Die!

Black Sabbath released their self titled debut album on Friday the 13th of February 1970 and with it and the albums that followed they laid the foundation that heavy metal and all of its splintering sub-genres are built upon. Ozzy Osbourne was very publicly ejected from the band in the late 70s and aside from a couple of bonus songs at the end of their Reunion live double-album in 1998, they haven’t released any new material with him since. That ends on June 11th when Black Sabbath releases 13, Black Sabbath’s first full length album with Ozzy on vocals since 1978! The master of heavy riffs, Tony Iommi, is still at it on the band’s new track God Is Dead?, which you can listen to below. The support on this tour is being provided by the hard partying Andrew W.K. Now check out the new Sabbath track and a few of my personal favorites as you leave your comment to enter the contest!

  40. Changes!

  41. Definitely, N.I.B.

  42. I have a love/hate relationship with Iron Man. It’s the only song I ever learned on bass, but the ex who taught me was a real dill-hole.

    Still, guess I have to go with Iron Man.

  43. N.I.B

  44. I’d have to go with War Pigs!!

  56. War pigs!!

  57. hand of doom! hail sabbath!!!!!

  58. Electric Funeral!! One of the greatest songs ever.

  59. My vote goes for Planet Caravan. That one’s a real masterpiece.

  60. Hand of Doom is by far the best vocal performance of Ozzy’s career.

  61. War Pigs. Especially at 3:00 am. Listen to Black Sabbath.

  62. Not fair Chris picking just one that’s like asking to pick your favorite child. But I’m going the sentimental route, be it the first Black Sabbath song I heard and that be ‘War Pigs’.

  63. I know its not one of their more popular songs but lately I really like the St Vitus Dance on Vol. 4!

    Also if you pick me for the tickets ill go kidnap Bill Ward so that we can see him instead of a scab :)

  78. NIB

  79. Paranoid.

  80. Paranoid

  81. Bassically / N.I.B.

  82. Hole in the Sky!

  83. Two equal favorites: “Hand of Doom” because Ozzy’s tale of Vietnam veterans succumbing to heroin addiction, coupled with wicked riffery, is harrowing… and “Junior’s Eyes,” about his father’s death, still gives me the chills 35 years later…

  101. Sweet Leaf
