Norma Luna, my favorite song is ” SWEET LEAF” and will not be fair just to say that 1, cos I love must of their songs, “Changes” ” Black Sabbath” NIB….lots more, but SWEET LEAF was the very 1st I heard , the start is awesome, coughing and all, the meaning of the Lyrics , stuff that people say w/o knowing, ppl who never had smoke 1……same goes 4 ppl who says all the bad stuff about the band ( dark messages, the Devil, witches etc etc) …..Black Sabbath 4 m is a band who came with a purpose to earth and gave music a new meaning and opportunities to lots and lots of bands after them!!!!!! Win or lose this tickets, I’ll still be BLACK SABBATH fan 4 life!!!!!!!!!! Good luck to every1

Quentin Young August 15, 2016 at 1:12 pm

My favorite song from black sabbath is (I Witness) love it 2 the core. Never seen them live but its been a dream of mine ever since i heard the first vocal line, guitar picking, or bass line!

Gordon Posey August 15, 2016 at 1:39 pm

My favorite Black Sabbath song is Symptom of the Universe because the riff sounds just as heavy as anything that has been recorded since. Children of the Grave was almost my choice.

Boy so many amazing sabbath songs but the one I love is “Who Are You?” It’s an amazing song asking the age old question. One of the first albums I owned was Sabbath Bloody Sabbath and this song has always had a special place! Can’t wait to see them play!

My personal favorite Black Sabbath song is definitely a tie between Into The Void and Planet Caravan. I’ve listened to both for years, and every time I hear them it’s just like the first time. I can’t wait for the show!

Cory New August 16, 2016 at 10:55 am

My favorite Black Sabbath song is Black Sabbath. The song that started it all. It’s so dark and slow and ominous. You really feel like you’re about to be taken to the dark side!

Randall Holmes August 16, 2016 at 3:30 pm

My favorite Black Sabbath song is War Pigs. War Pigs is highly political and has been correctly testified for generations, its meaning truly still stands today. I love these guys, thank you for the years of kick @$$ metal you guys have produced that has helped form what metal is today!

John Norris August 16, 2016 at 5:09 pm

My most memorable is not just 1 song but an entire album. My father(may he r.i.p.) didn’t listen to any kind of hard rock or metal at all, but the Paranoid album he found enjoyable. When i was young, as far back as i can remember, he had 1 of those Sears stereos that played records and 8 tracks(lol). Weekend visitation was late night Black Sabbath.

Barbara Barnett August 16, 2016 at 6:31 pm

WAR PIGS !!! it applies to the political agenda going on every single day and what has been going on ever since the first war. It is a very touching song when you listen to all the words and is totally kickass! Of course it’s hard to pick a favorite Black Sabbath song…they are all excellent???

ERIC WILLIAMS August 16, 2016 at 8:34 pm

my favorite black sabbath song is children of the grave because it has the most dirty tones it fits perfect in skateboarding and its just a BADASS JAM

Melissa Allen August 16, 2016 at 11:47 pm

My favorite Sabbath song is Supernaut because it never fails to get me pumped and make me dance in my seat!

Kiley Zaring August 17, 2016 at 1:11 am

Changes is my favorite song because it also shows the softer side to Black Sabbath, who are usually always hardcore!!!! Black Sabbath For Life!!

Kiley Zaring August 17, 2016 at 1:14 am

Changes is my favorite Black Sabbath song because it as a lot of meaning to it for me and also the band. It also shows the softer side of the band, where as most people back in the day were kind of put off and scared of them

It would not let me tag Indy Metal Shows on my phone when I reposted this, so I used a hashtag.

Jarrett Tate August 17, 2016 at 2:33 am

Children of the Grave. Killer opening.

Marsha Woloshin August 17, 2016 at 2:55 am

War Pigs with all of the political drama of an upcoming election my current favorite, but I love them all. Attending their final show would be a dream!

Franklin Lennon August 17, 2016 at 6:12 am

My name is Frank Lennon and my favorite Black Sabbath song is Children of the Grave! Im a HUGE Sabbath fan!! Ozzy, Tony, Geezer and Bill are the BEST!!!

Jaynie Watson August 17, 2016 at 6:30 am

Paranoid …… The whole album !

War pigs

I played this album everyday… It was a vent, a coping mechanism, if you will… It saved my soul from being devoured from the inside out… \m/

Scot Blust August 17, 2016 at 6:54 am

Scot Blust My favorite Black Sabbath song is BLACK SABBATH!!!! It is so dark and ominous, chills you to the bone. It was a ground breaking song that introduced the Horror genre to the realm of rock music, certainly a new twist back in those days. Truly revolutionary!! Scary and well-crafted to horrify.

Benjamin Goodman August 17, 2016 at 8:16 am

Benjamin Goodman my favorite song is NIB it just pumps me up an I love the bass in the song it is what got me playing music

Matt Garrison August 17, 2016 at 10:46 am

Favorite Black Sabbath song…man, there is so many great songs with Ozzy on vocals. But if I would have to pick one it would be Children of the Grave. Bill Ward’s groove is so good and Geezer Butler’s bass is in your face. And the solo from Tony Iommie is one of my favorites.

Scotty James August 17, 2016 at 12:44 pm

My favorite Sabbath song is Fairies Wear Boots because the guitar riffs just sound so evil…

Allen Evans August 17, 2016 at 1:48 pm

So many great songs, but I’d have to pick PARANOID as my favorite because the guitar is off the charts. You just know its time to get crazy when it played! Black Sabbath and Iron Man are honorable mentions!

Debra Funk August 17, 2016 at 2:42 pm

My favorite would definitely be “Ironman”. Reason being, my husband would play it in the car and our twin sons, who are now in their middle 20s, were about 7 or 8 would bang their head metal style and sing it. Beautiful memories.

niki damron August 17, 2016 at 6:49 pm

I love Paranoid. I don’t know why, can’t explain it.

Justin magers August 17, 2016 at 7:32 pm

Sweat leaf and nib – because they rock

Donnie Bonn August 17, 2016 at 9:44 pm

Electric funeral really gets me. Ahead of their time with some riffs.

Earl Foltz August 18, 2016 at 2:08 am

I would have to say it is probably a tie between “Iron Man” and “Electric Funeral” because “Paranoid” was the first heavy metal album I bought many years ago, and my life changed forever in my journey through so many metal and punk bands. Black Sabbath has been such a BIG influence on many future bands—both heavy metal and punk. Hearing those monster riffs helps you get through the day.

Kory Wilson August 18, 2016 at 10:39 pm

Favorite song is War Pigs. I love the intro and how it leads into an amazing work of art. A close second would be The Wizard.

Jerry silcox August 19, 2016 at 12:29 am

My fav song is war pigs, I was in the Gulf War an it really got our adrenaline pumping !!!!

Jerry silcox August 19, 2016 at 12:32 am

My favorite sabbath song is war pigs, I was in the Gulf War and it really got our adrenaline pumping! !!

Sandra Kaye Hensley August 19, 2016 at 1:03 am

Changes! My husband and I have been together 29 years and this was our song back when we first met. Rocky first year lol

Shannon Dononvan August 19, 2016 at 11:43 am

I would have to say The Wizard is my favorite! I mean, come on……. Ozzy on the harmonica??? A song about Ozzy meeting Gandolf?!?!?!?! <3 Love this one!

James Hensley August 19, 2016 at 11:54 am

There are so many to pick from. I’d have to say “Solitude” off of Masters of Reality. I was a young teenager, lost, confused and depressed like most teens. I bought this album and when I heard Solitude I knew I wasn’t alone in my struggles. There was others that felt the same as me and Sabbath, this song made me realize that. I had to rewind the tape and listen over and over until I memorized the words.

Stephan August 20, 2016 at 10:05 pm

Neon Knights! It’s catchy as hell, fast, upbeat, melodic, anthemic, fist-pumping.
A true metal classic I never get tired of.
