Black Sabbath, Paranoid (1970)

Label: Vertigo

Yelawolf: “With the ‘War Pigs’ and ‘Iron Man,’ this was the scariest time of my life ever. The worst, scariest parts of your life tend to be the most impactful. I remember being left alone with strange people [while hearing this].

 

My mom would be off partying and her friend’s sons—they were 15 and 17 years old—would be listening to Black Sabbath. I was [a little kid] and I would be stuck in the attic with these motherfuckers listening to this shit while they played with their ouija board.

“As I got older, I started loving their music. That album, Ozzy Osbourne, and Black Sabbath as a whole just scared me. But it was a healthy fear; it’s not even bad. It was a healthy fear that made me appreciate a different side of everything.

"I’ll never forget that fucking poster with Ozzy and that long white hair growing out of his skin and crawling through the woods like a fucking albino werewolf.”
