Happy Birthday, Heavy Metal!

40 years ago today (February 13th), 4 guys from working-class England released an album. The album was the same name as their band. The opening riff to the album conjured up the most freightening of images. In its time, there was nothing like it. Little did those four guys know that they had unleashd what was to become the biggest and longest-living musical genre of all time. One song; one distorted guitar tone birthed countless bands and countless genre's all the world over. It's impossible to measure the impact this one event had on the world, from 40 years ago to still impacting every country on earth to this day.

That band is Black Sabbath.
The album is Black Sabbath.
The song is Black Sabbath.

Happy birthday, heavy metal.
