Quiz: How Well Do You Know Black Sabbath’s Lyrics?

We all know Ozzy’s voice, but have you been paying attention to his words? Take our Black Sabbath lyric quiz to find out!

You can basically split the history of music into two eras: Before Sabbath and After Sabbath. The world of rock simply wouldn’t be what it is if Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler, Tony Iommi and Bill Ward hadn’t solidified what this thing ‘metal’ was, 50 years ago.

Sure, other bands helped shape it, and there are hardcore Led Zeppelin fans who would fight to the death to credit that band with creating the genre, but shit, listen to Sabbath’s self-titled album and it’s all there – big doomy fuck-off riffs, occult imagery and awesome bleakness.

Fifty years, nineteen albums, five lead singers and a huge amount of drugs – it’s a hell of a legacy. One ten-question quiz can barely scratch the surface, so we’re only covering the albums made before Ozzy Osbourne’s departure in 1978. But how much attention have you been paying to the words?”
