Black Sabbath Classic Used In New Movie's TV Commercial

(hennemusic) The Black Sabbath classic "War Pigs" is featured in the first TV commercial for the upcoming film, "300: Rise Of An Empire." In theaters March 7, "300: Rise Of An Empire" is the follow-up to the 2007 film "300", with a storyline that takes place before, during, and after the events of the first movie.

"300: Rise Of An Empire" is based on Frank Miller's graphic novel that takes Xerxes, the Persian leader who is an antagonist in "300", and turns him into more of a pivotal figure.

"War Pigs" is the opening track on Black Sabbath's second album, 1970's "Paranoid." The song was the original title for the project but was changed by the record label over fears of a backlash from supporters of the ongoing Vietnam War. more on this story
