The greatest heavy metal band in the history of heavy metal is Black Sabbath and there is simply no disputing that.  Sabbath are the godfathers of heavy metal and hail from Birmingham, England.  They began their conquest of the universe in 1968 and have influenced every real rock n roll band that you hear today.  In my opinion, they are more important than Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple combined.  The classic lineup is preparing for a new album and world tour featuring Ozzy Osbourne on vocals, Tony Iommi on guitar, Geezer Butler on bass, and Bill Ward on drums.  Sabbath invented literally every single riff you hear in hard rock today.  Here are the ten best cover versions of Black Sabbath songs by other heavy metal legends:

#1.  “Paranoid” Megadeth

#2.  “Children of the Grave” White Zombie

#3.  “Symptom of the Universe” Sepultura

#4.  “Hole in the Sky” Pantera

#5.  “War Pigs” Faith No More

#6.  “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath” Anthrax

#7.  “Black Sabbath” Type-o-Negative

#8.  “Sabra Cadabra” Metallica

#9.  “N.I.B.” Primus Feat. Ozzy Osbourne

#10.  “After Forever” Biohazard

Honorable Mentions: “Hand of Doom” Slayer, “Lord of this World” Corrosion of Conformity (COC)
