A-Z TRIVIA WEDNESDAY: BLACK SABBATH

blacksabbath2big

This film served as inspiration for the naming of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath. In 1968, the band (then called Earth) was playing a small club in Birmingham, England. Across the street was a movie theater showing the film Black Sabbath. The band noticed that more people were in line to see the movie than were to see the band. Realizing that “horror sells tickets” they decided to change the band’s name to Black Sabbath.
