Black Sabbath – Paranoid

Black Sabbath are the only band to have two riffs in my top ten. Surprising, since I don’t even like them that much.

Whereas most riffs bludgeon their way into your subconscious through endless repetition, this one is played only four times at the opening of the song and not heard again. A testament of how strong it is.
