Seeing as Type O Negative are the band that brought heavy-metal doom to goth rock, it's no surprise that they were huge Sabbath fans. And while their best-known Sabbath cover is "Black Sabbath," from the original '94 Nativity in Black tribute album, a few years earlier (it was tacked on as a bonus cut to 1992's "live" album The Origin of the Feces) they took on the Sab's biker-metal classic "Paranoid," turning into a very Type O–esque dirge. "This used to be a Black Sabbath song ... til we got a hold of it," says frontman Peter Steele, announcing the song at this 1991 live show. For more epic live Sabbath covers, see our top 10 list, including Faith No More, Pantera, Metallica, Sepultura and more.
