Jay Despirited : Damn guys thats a legit reaction/review. Nice Also, todays my bday. Not too important but if. Can get a shout out in a vid id love that 😊 Also with good drumming listen to Slipknot: People=Shit ....or just GWAR War is all we know 😉 Thx guys 😄

Ilir Piliki : The song is from 1970, the drummer is Bill Ward, a monster drummer, the lyrics are written mostly by Geezer Butler, the bass player, the singer is the great Ozzy Osbourne, and the guitarist and founder of the band is Tony Iommi, a left handed riff-genious. Tony has lost his finger tips from his middle finger and ring finger, but he didn't give up and he made some thimbles and put them on his fingers to keep playing. Now, Hendrix is from the '60s, and Iommi really doesn't have a lot to do with Hendrix, but Tony was strongly inspired by blues, and Hendrix was a great blues rock guitar player, so I guess that's why they sound similar, that's all I can say. And also, for the solos, in this song Tony actually played two different solos for each solo section, so that's why you can hear more than one guitar, the solos are double tracked/harmonised. There, hope I answered to all of the questions you made in the video! Black Sabbath is my favourite band, and I love this song!!

Tïr Eoghain Blackman : Man, seeing two people hear Black Sabbath for the first time and 'getting it' is a beautiful thing.

202d : Bill Ward, thats the drummer. In that era you got Ginger Baker, Bill Ward Keith Moon and John Bonham

Mr. Joe Beh : Possibly the only channel anywhere that claims "unbiased" and actually follows through. Great channel!

M6nst6r6 : 48 years later, theme of song relevant more than it was before!

Opuskrokus : Black Sabbath were pretty much contemporary with Jimi Hendrix. Jimi's first album was 1967, and Black Sabbath started out in 1968. Jimi's career started in the early 60's, playing with the Isley Brothers and Little Richard. He died 1970.

TD.Burleigh : You guys NEED to review Electric Funeral - Black Sabbath it’s soooo raw and great

Fernando Leticia Sabater : Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun

idontcare : it's so fucking dope to see someone who's never heard this classic get to experience it for the first time and enjoy it so much. you two are fucking awesome

Jose Ramudo : React to Rainbow -. Stargazer . You'll thank me later :)

Get Em Jones : I was as excited as Ryan when I saw Black Sabbath.

A-Z : Not two guitarists, Tony recorded himself multiple times. Also a fact that every Sabbath fan knows but you might not, Tony (the guitarists) had the tips of his finger cut off in an accident, so he plays with rubber thimble-like things.

Kylea Michele : M O T O R H E A D!!! ♡♡♡

Steve Garner : The drummer Bill Ward was really influenced by jazz that's why he's so groovy.

nikos dani : you guys are great! thanks from a 49 year old metalhead!

James Rodolfo : Alter Bridge-Blackbird!!!!! Also isn't anyone going to mention Geezers bass playing come on man. Also the guitarist Tony Iommi had the tips of his fingers chopped off and still became a legend.

Jacob Freiberger : The Writ, Megalomania, Thrill of It All.

mitzi marissa : Best lyrics ever and completely timeless with all the stuff going on in the world. I get goosebumps every time I hear this. Like my who,e 38 years of life.

Mistress Dreama : the message in WAR PIGS is still true today! please check out the late great STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN he did a Hendrix cover , "little wing" I recommend "Texas Flood" I met him briefly back in Austin in early 80s just before he made it on to "Austin city limits" ( music show) he was sitting at a sidewalk cafe and we started talking he invited me to hear him play at this hole in the wall bar. only me and maybe 2 others were there! he told me how he was about to go on this show A.C.L. he was excited. at the time I was not so much into his type of music, too young to appreciate I guess at the time. next time I saw him was at rockafeller' s in Houston I was on a date, again not too many people there he remembered me gave me a big hug. So years past I married had kids heard this song Texas flood on the radio in Texas and loved it , bought the CD and it took a minute to realize.. hey, that's that funny short guy in that blues rock band back in Austin. I had forgotten about him. A friend told me he knew who he was that he died years back. I cried. the irony.. when I knew him I wasn't into him both musically and well he tried to sleep with me the once in Austin. lol now he's gone from this world and I REDISCOVERED him and saw him for the true genius he was.. So bittersweet..😢😢😭😭

IcedVengence : Yes - Roundabout

ed cooke : How about listen to something your parents played when you was a child that you still listen to now

Roberto Barajas : You guys should react To I am the walrus by the Beatles 😂😂


undrkvr99 : Lmaoo "drums and baby oil"

mitzi marissa : Black Sabbath and most British groups will tell you they are influenced by black American music. Blues and r and b. Big time.

Nate Baker : man thank YOU guys for your continuous entertaining videos that 100k is well deserved !! I had a couple video ideas such as you reaction/sing-a-long/cover to your favorite song of all time or "Is it still HOT tho?" Ep 2 😏 or maybe just y'all dropping a freestyle 😂. Back to the Black Sabbath I think you guys hit the nail on the head that this song was universally phenomenal and also because of its amazing groove, because its not to complex for someone new to get into liking it but also its very musically pleasing hearing the instrumentation and the vocals in this song that you can rock your head to. Wonderful video guys ✊🏽

akeagleTL : Blue Oyster Cult - Go Go Godzilla


Alan Piacenta : YOU GUYS made me smile so hard ! thanks, coming from an old rock singer who has been singing black Sabbath for 30 years.


Michael Ledford : Black Sabbath pioneered heavy metal music in their choice of chords and were the originators of writing lyrics about Satan VS our Christian God, the 1st heavy metal song Tony Iommi " Guitar " and Geezer Butler " Bass Guitar " ever wrote was titled Black Sabbath and the song was written to emulate, or copy the scary reaction of a horror movie ,here's where very simple non technical music by Sabbath becomes highly technical playing for its day ,mainly due to Tony writing guitar riffs and chords using what music theory labeled " the Devils Triad " in the 1800's , music theory said a piece of music should NEVER pause, or change with the final notes being a Tritone using a diminished 5th because the chords left listeners feeling angst or aggregated, Tony wrote every riff and every power chord using the diminished 5th to create the same emotions as watching a horror film ,Geezer Butler wrote the lyrics including verses about Satan & God due to his recent involvement in reading books on black magic ,the song Black Sabbath and the band's name were copied from a 1950's horror film called Black Sabbath staring Boris Karlof . To increase the emotion of the listener Geezer wrote his bass lines that closely followed Tonys heavy use of the diminished 5th ,the extreme use of the diminished 5th caused/caused dissonance with the listener who's brain tells us to expect a nice sounding chord ,then we are hit with a diminished 5th that is not a pleasant chord at all . Bill Ward " Drums " further caused dissonance in listeners by his use of Triads in his playing ,as well as Bill used the extended interval " pauses in the pace of the song " to further exaggerate the angst listeners were feeling, now days Black Sabbaths technical musicianship is outmatched by nearly every heavy metal band but Sabbath were the absolute 1st band to break all the rules of music theory being taught at conservatory's and music schools world wide where students were taught to avoid the diminished 5th ,certian Tritone and Triads ,the augmented 4th and the extreme intervals, all of which Black Sabbath combined to create an entirely new genre of music ,before Black Sabbath the use of the devils Tritone and Triads simply were not being played ,early Black Sabbath music was as ground breaking as true geniuses such as Miles Davis and Frank Zappa, it's hard for you kids to imagine the sheer horror Black Sabbath caused the world when they hit the scene because we've become desensitized by overly sexualized music ,extreme violence on TV and extreme lyrics in music ,back in 1970 the Bryds & The Beatles were singing about how great it was to be in love and everything is super fantastic ,then along comes Black Sabbath singing about Lucifer with the lyrics " What is this that stands before me ,figure in black which points at me ,turn round quick and start to run ,find out I'm the chosen one ,oh god please God help me ! That shit f-ed a lot of people up and had America in an uproar ,for an entire year nearly every night on network news was a story about black Sabbath and some community's adverse reaction and hatred of them ,the Catholic church and pope spoke out against black Sabbath, I had only been home from Vietnam for a few months when Sabbath Black Sabbath hit the radio and it frightened me when i 1st heard it ,while everybody wishes Jimi Hendrix influenced Sabbath Tony Iommis guitar playing was 10 times more ground breaking than Hendrix ,I saw both live and seeing Sabbath left me afraid for my mortal soul back then ,even Hendrix couldn't evoke such emotions out of listeners .

NivekIohc : One possible reason why the guitar solo sounds like is probably because they double tracked the guitar parts.

Rob Toogood : Kyuss - Demon Cleaner

Stephen Davis : Drums and baby oil! :)

Frank Grimes : Dudes, pick up drums and guitar now :P No time like the present as you've discovered new found appreciation for the instruments Additionally, it's great to see you guys get hyped up over music that's pretty foreign to you. Makes me happy :)
