Robert Downey, Jr. Helps Black Sabbath Score A No. 1

(hennemusic) Black Sabbath have a UK no. 1 on their hands. UK retailer HMV has compiled a list of its best-selling classic rock shirts, with Sabbath coming in at number one, while Led Zeppelin take the second and third spots, reports Belfast Telegraph.

Sabbath's US tour shirt from 1978 landed at #1 following a sales surge after it was worn by Robert Downey, Jr. - who plays Iron Man's alter ego Tony Stark - in the hit movie "Avengers Assemble".

"More often than not, rock T-shirts used to be something you'd wear to gigs to see your favourite bands, but over time demand has broadened and they've since become a bit of a fashion-statement in their own right," said HMV's Gennaro Castaldo. "Some performers can quickly come and go with the trends, but one genre that has an enduring appeal and seems to remain eternally popular with fans is classic rock and metal." more on this story
