Best Black Sabbath Ronnie James Dio Era Songs


The Top Ten

1 Heaven and Hell

One of the best Black Sabbath Songs and all because of not only the sound of the guitar but also thanks to Ronnie James Dio's awesome vocals.

So many great songs but this is mind blowing

Their best song period - christangrant

Just a brilliant song. This has the whole package and showcases the best of both Dio and Sabbath. - Michael Wallace

Rainbow-like song of Black Sabbath. Dio's era begins!

Still is and will always be on of my all time favorite album openers! And what followed after that was nothing short of Godly - PsychoSandman33

Definitely my favorite song of Dio led Black Sabbath! Hard and fast throughout. Gives me chills every time I hear the guitar riffs with Dio's powerful voice. Protectors of the Realm indeed!

The Best Sabbath Song Ever!

4 I

Brutality and power in Dio's voice, definitely one of the greatest and heaviest Sabbath songs

Dehumanizer is Sabbath's most underrated album. I is, in my opinion, the best song. Period. Heaven and Hell and the whole album Paranoid are overrated, but I don't hate them. Heaven ranks around as my number 4 favorite Sabbath song, while the song Paranoid doesn't even make it to my top 30.

It is a very powerful song great vocals, driving beat, overall a fantastic song from a fantastic group

A fabulous song, full of anger and heavy metal swagger. Michael Wallace.

5 Turn Up the Night

Love the solo

6 The Mob Rules

He could scream like none other, save maybe Halford. Listen to the live version at Radio City Music Hall.

7 The Sign of the Southern Cross

One of the greatest songs ever wrote. It is impossible to not fell the awesomeness of this song as you hear each verse and each chord.

In all honesty Heaven & Hell is the #1 Dio Sabbath song, but this could move up the list a spot or two.

My world stood still the first time I heard this!

Mob rules is my first dio era album.
Ah good memories

This one is definitely among the best Black Sabbath songs in general. Great vocals and lyrics by Ronnie and the music is just amazing - the slow, melodic parts of the song highlight the fast, heavy parts and those simply kick ass. Now this is some aesthetic metal for you! - Moonchild

The best tune with awesome guitar licks on an overall excellent, classic album!

9 Master of Insanity

I can't say it's my favourite song with Dio but at least I don't agree with its 5th place. It should be in the leading 3. It's powerful, very strange and heavy. Despite the fact Ozzy Osbourne doesn't sing here, it effectively shows us what heavy metal is what real Black Sabbath is. I've fallen in love with it.

Amazing. Amazing riff, superb chorus, great melodic guitar solo. - SoldierOfFortune

The Wanton Song - Led Zeppelin

10 Computer God

Computer God is one of Sabbath's best songs. It should be in the top 10 of any Sabbath list.


The Contenders

11 Country Girl

The guitar riff is one of the best. And sticks in my head all day. Underrated song

Epic riff. So unterrated song...

12 Lady Evil
13 Wishing Well

Should be number 1! - SoldierOfFortune

Great song! Great lyrics! The best singer!

14 Falling Off the Edge of the World

Should be top ten, one of their best song with Dio.

My favourite of this album.

In my opinion, this is the best Dio Sabbath song. The melody, the snarling guitar riff (! ), the drums...

Easily my most listened to track.

15 Over and Over

Best leads in any SABBATH SONG

16 Voodoo
17 Rock and Roll Angel
18 The Dark
19 Lonely is the Word

How is this not in the top ten?! The feeling in Dio's vocals is so... Awesome! And the guitar is so hypnotizing, it sends shudders down anyone's spine. In my eyes, it will always be one of Dio's and Black Sabbath's greatest songs.

Best work from Tony Iommy. This song shows us a distinction between Dio's era and Ozzy's years.
