You can argue about the first heavy metal band, sure. You can say Led Zeppelin was the first, or maybe you want to say "Helter Skelter" by the Beatles was really proto-metal, or maybe you're a contrarian and want to say Iron Butterfly was the first. All of those bands are important and good, sure, but when it comes to heavy metal, you know it all starts and ends with Birmingham's Black Sabbath. Ozzy, Iomi, Geezer, Bill. Those four guys just making some of the hardest music ever written. This Black Sabbath long sleeved shirt is a "crew" shirt, given out to local hands at the venues the band played. And now it can be yours. You can tell everyone you were backstage at the gig and you got to shake Ozzy's hand and that he was nice.
