Black Sabbath, Paranoid

The first track on this album, “War Pigs,” taught me at a very young age something loomed sinister in the hearts of government, men in power and military might. To me it’s the most seminal metal album of all time—and, on a night when we just landed missile strikes on Syria, I’m blown away at how well it has aged and how relevant it remains. It’s about as heavy as I like to go and, when I need my fix of hard rock, it more than amply gets the job done.
