A masterpiece it should have been number 1V 1 Comment
My favourite song of all time! Amazing intro leads into an amazing riff with perfect vocals and story behind it. The ending and outro has the best solo in metal history in my opinion! - dragon13304
Nirvana is in no way metal, but metallica is! Fade to black perfection, enough said.
Greatest metal riff after Smoke On The Water, and the lyrics are for Nobel award. Great heavy metal attitude.
What the... Wow...
SWEET CHILD O' MINE IS NOT METAL!
The softest rock track on Appetite, and people are calling it metal...
THIS SONG HAS THE AWESOME AND THE AWESOME RHYTHM OF A GREAT BAND. THIS SONG IS AWESOME.
WHENEVER HEAR THIS SONG MY BLOOD STARTS TO RAGE.
THE WAY THIS SONG STARTS IS AWESOME BUT AS IT CARRIES ON AND ENDS IS SIMPLY MESMERISING.
I honestly can't believe that people put on this list bands like Nirvana or Guns and Roses, can anyone then when these 2 bands became metal?! People, Black Sabbath is and always will be THE best metal band ever! And this song will always be a metal anthem. From Ronnie's incredible singing to Iommi's LEGENDERY guitar riff, this is by far the best metal song ever!
The intro and all the solos from this song are absolutely amazing!
I know it's a cover but it put him on the map as a metal artist
