(Classic Rock) Ozzy Osbourne says that the track Black Sabbath is "the scariest song ever written." It led off their self-titled 1970 debut album - and Ozzy says without that song, he wouldn't have been given his famous nickname.

He tells NME: "When we started gigging way back when, as soon as we started playing this song's opening chords, young girls in the audience would f***ing freak out. They thought we were Satan's f***ing friends or something.

"That's when the whole Prince Of Darkness sh*t started. When people get excited about Halloween coming around each year, all I think is, 'Well, we used to have Halloween every f***ing night.'"

Black Sabbath are gearing up for the next leg of their The End tour, which gets underway in November. Read more here.
