Juan N.
“#ConverseBlackSabbath black sabbath has always been my number one band, their music has been with me since I started getting into it, they’ve made my days happier and my life way better and more fun, in hard moments and very cool ones, Ozzy Osbourne is my role model, cause why fuckin’ not?? I am just a really big fan of Black Sabbath, I traveled lots of miles last year to make my dream come true and see Black Sabbath live in Mexico City, October 26, 2014 the best day of my life, I even cried like such a fan girl when I heard the first riffs of War Pigs and Snowblind… This band and their music means a lot to me in my life and their music and work will always be present with me no matter what.. Black sabbath is the biggest band that has ever existed #BlackSabbath” @ozzyosbourne@blacksabbath

Tyler Geissler
“I am Black Sabbath’s #1 fan because this band has forever changed my life for the best. I saw Ozzy in concert when I was eleven, so of course I’m going to listen to a bunch of Black Sabbath! That night, I decided to begin playing guitar. Seven-eight years down the road, I am in a local band, and have made a bit of a name for myself amongst my small community as a guitarist. Black Sabbath is my favorite band, and a life full of hard music is why I am Black Sabbath’s #1 fan. #converseblacksabbath”

    Did it occur to anyone that “cried like such a fan girl” is totally offensive?
