On Monday Black Sabbath Didn't Approve Of The Inverted Cross Album Artwork was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Black Sabbath didn't approve of the inverted cross used in the artwork for their debut album, according to former drummer Bill Ward. Ward hints it may have been used as a "promotional ploy" by their label Vertigo and says though the band were "morbid" and "rebellious," the Satanic symbol didn't represent who they were.

In an archive interview from 2010, which has recently surfaced, Ward tells Banger TV: "The cover was something that was presented to us, and being our usual morbid selves, we were all instantaneously attracted to that.

"But the inside cover, none of us liked. We didn't like it at all because it had an inverted cross in it." He adds: "I think there were some wise guys who deliberately put that together as a ploy - as an advertising, promotional ploy, or who had seriously misgauged us as a band. There was no collaboration so I don't know who was responsible for it. I guess someone thought it would be a good idea and thought that was what we represented." Read more - here.
