Formed in Birmingham, England in 1968, Black Sabbath began composing songs about social instability,
horror themes, and gritty sounds from the very beginning. The foursome originally decided on the name The Polka Tulk Blues
Band, but thankfully later changed it to Black Sabbath to match their sound more appropriately. While the band was practicing
in a rehearsal room in 1963, a cinema across the street was showing a horror film titled Black Sabbath. The band soon adopted
this name to match their darker and edgier lyrics.
In 1969, the band played their very first show as Black Sabbath and
were signed to Philips Record shortly after. They got their first major exposure later that year when they appeared on John
Peel's Top Gear radio show, which showcased their dark and intense songs to a wide audience. Their self-titled debut album
was released in 1970, skyrocketing high onto the UK music charts, and becoming a huge commercial in the US and Canada months
later. Although critics trashed this album, audiences everywhere ate it up, and the album was deemed a success. Over forty
years later, the album has been certified platinum in both the US and the UK.
