I'm interested to see what you consider the best song by Black Sabbath. For me N.I.B. is the best. I only brought '70 songs because I thought they were the most popular ones.

If you vote other, please comment below which.

I know Ozzy doesn't sing it (that may be one reason why I'm choosing this), but Sign of The Southern Cross from the Dio era is an awesome song. The intro is haunting, the riffs are delectable, and Dio's performance is amazing as usual.

It's ok to have a non-Ozzy era Sabbath favourite. My favourites from Dio era are Heaven And Hell, Children Of The Sea and Lonely Is The Word.

Black Sabbath off Black Sabbath by Black Sabbath... by far.
That song is an absolute classic and will forever be my favorite BS song.

Agreed, probably with Fairies Wear Boots coming second, followed by N.I.B., Paranoid and Supernaut in some kind of random order.


And someone named the filler again Btw Paranoid is also one of my fav songs but it is a filler in the true sense of the word. The band wrote it in the studio because they needed a couple of more minutes of music to fill up the album

It is really funny that a filler laid the ground to the entire heavy metal genre. Blue Cheer's "Summertime Blues" was earlier and is what I consider to be the first heavy metal song, but that song still had a significantly blues element, and "Black Sabbath" is a doom metal song, not a heavy metal song. "Paranoid" started the evolution to what would be traditional heavy metal, an evolution they of course continued a year later with "Children Of The Grave". Probably "Paranoid" could be considered the second most influential metal song ever after "Black Sabbath".

Megalomania is still one of my favorite metal songs, and my favorite Sabbath song. Ozzy actually sounds really good throughout the entire song (even if he does get loaded with effects during the intro), and writing a 9 minute long progressive metal song that feels half its length (in a good way) before metal as even a thing is pretty incredible.

I'm surprised so many people mentions Megalomania as their favourite song, although I agree it is a great song, but I didn't know it was considered among the true classics, since it isn't featured on any of my compilations or live albums by Sabbath, and the Sabotage album is rarely mentioned as one of the very best Sabbath albums, and when talking about Sabotage, it is often Symptom Of The Universe that is mentioned. Perhaps I should have included Megalomania on the poll too.

I'm going with Die Young - love that song.

Picking an Ozzy era favourite song would be pretty difficult.

I currently enjoy Snowblind. The main riff I think is one of Iommi's best and Ozzy's vocal performance is ridiculously good. Vol. 4 is an amazing album.

Vol. 4 is my least favourite album by Black Sabbath.

I could add that I still like Vol. 4, but I like all of their first six albums. I just find it difficult to find any true stand-out track on Vol. 4. like on the other albums. My favourite song on the album is Tomorrow's Dream, but Snowblind is of course good too.
