Black Sabbath - War Pigs Live Video

It's Friday- let's rock! Here's a concert clip of Birmingham's own Black Sabbath in their younger years, slaying the crowd with War Pigs. Credited with kickstarting the entire heavy metal genre, Sabbath's musical power continues to influence and amaze. And I can't think of a more appropriate song for the dark age we live in today.

Speaking of influences, Sabbath's 1970 album Paranoid (home of War Pigs) is on the list of road cassettes Robert Pollard compiled for Guided By Voices' tour. Although not one of the oft mentioned 4 "P's" of GBV (Pop, Prog, Punk and Psychedelic), there is more than a little metal in the music, in my humble opinion. Oh, and it's been announced that War Pigs will be a part of Guitar Hero 2! Looking forward to rocking out on this riff heavy classic my-own-self.

Enjoy your weekend good peoples around the world! It will be my last before heading out to the Pearl Jam/Pollard show in Pittsburgh so I plan to make the most of it.
