There’s an argument to be made (and in this episode, I in fact do) that Black Sabbath is right up there with the Beatles and Elvis for the biggest influence and impact on music in their wake. Are there others that could be mentioned? Absolutely. But there’s no denying that Black Sabbath started Metal. There were elements of it here and there, but no one put it together in the package that Sabbath did.
