04. The Beatles – “A Hard Day’s Night”
03. Queen – “Queen II”
02. Led Zeppelin – “Led Zeppelin”
01. Black Sabbath – “Black Sabbath“

Halford kertoi listan ensimmäiseksi päätyneestä Black Sabbathin debyyttialbumista seuraavaa:

”They were local guys from the same neighborhood, the same neck of the woods as Priest. We literally grew up together, inventing this great music that we love and cherish so much called heavy-metal music. I chose the Black Sabbath album just because, like so many bands, your first one or two records really establish who you are as a band. It’s a bit like Priest with ’Rocka Rolla’ and ’Sad Wings of Destiny’; ’Sad Wings of Destiny’ becomes the one we love so much because it becomes defining. With Black Sabbath, here was the first example of what heavy-metal music should sound like, just the texture, the tone, the structure of all of the material, Ozzy’s very unique voice. It’s just become a very important record in the discography of Black Sabbath.”
