List Rules Vote for your favorite Black Sabbath songs, not just singles and hits.

Here are the best Black Sabbath songs, as voted on by fans like you. The records of the English rock band Black Sabbath all but created the standard for heavy metal. Ozzy Osboune's wail, Tony Iommi's leaden riffs, and Bill Ward and Geezer Butler's swing were a potent metal cauldron that inspired thousands of would be headbangers. This list sets out to create the ultimate playlist of one of metal's most revered bands. Songs like "Iron Man" and "Paranoid" are here, but we tried to include some curveballs that give you the full breadth of what Sabbath could do as well as some nods to their great Ronnie James Dio fronted albums.

Formed in Birmingham in 1968, Black Sabbath were originally a blues rock band before they adopted occult themes and becoming the heavy metal band fans all know and love today. Selling over 70 million records worldwide, Black Sabbath have won two Grammy Awards for Best Metal Performance and were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2006.

If you feel like we're not making this list heavy enough, add some more rockers or reorder them, so your neck gets the headbanging workout it needs. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
