    It will never not be this song.



    This isn't even close to my favorite song by Black Sabbath, but it is the quintessential metal template. Tri-tone riff, dark lyrics, huge sounding guitars. That was the song that changed the band (in name and style), and the music world, forever.

    So live for today,
    Tomorrow never comes.
    Die young, die young,
    Can't you see the writing in the air?
    Die young, gonna die young,
    Someone stopped the fair.

    I thought I knew metal until I heard this song, then it became my new benchmark.

    For all you guys answering Metallica, unless your answer is "For Whom the Bell Tolls", it is objectively wrong.

    Lyrically that song is beyond perfect. Ride the Lightning and AJFA are both way better albums than MoP. Unpopular opinion, but that's how I've always felt.

    There are no songs that are better lyrically/conceptually than "For Whom the Bell Tolls" in the history of music.

    For Whom the Bells is lyrically so fucking next level that if the text hadn't been presented as a metal song it would have won so many awards. The only stuff on the same level of "impossibly good" lyrically/conceptually is stuff like Two Minutes to Midnight, Revelations, and I (the Black Sabbath song).
