Peter Steele and Co. turned biker-metal classic into doomy dirge in 1991

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.
