Most people think that what made the original Black Sabbath special was that it was so heavy. Not just heavy metal, but heavy in the most elemental sense, from the hellhound growl of the guitars to the devil-worship rumors that wafted after the band like a bad odor. Needless to say, that was more than enough to endear the band to a generation of rock-and-roll misfits.But as Ozzy Osbourne remembers it, what set Sabbath apart wasn't its heft, but its daring. "If you put my years in Black Sabbath in a nutshell, we did a hell of a lot of experimentation," he says by phone from his home in Los Angeles.

Black SabbathReunion (Epic 69539)A lot has changed in rock and roll in the three decades since Black Sabbath first roared out of Birmingham. Amps have gotten bigger, band names have gotten scarier, and metal has gotten heavier. By current standards, the music this band made before singer Ozzy Osbourne flew the coop in 1979 seems almost quaint.Nonetheless, there's something wonderfully vital about the sound of "Reunion." Bringing Osbourne back together with guitarist Tony Iommi, bassist Geezer Butler and drummer Bill Ward, the double-CD live set marks the first recording this crew has made in 20 years, and the Sabs tear into their tunes with unabashed ferocity.

Taken at face value, as Top-40 singles often are, the Cardigans seem little more than a pleasantly frothy pop-rock combo. "Lovefool," the group's effortlessly catchy breakthrough hit, certainly sounds simple enough. Between Nina Persson's wispily pretty voice and the quiet percolation of the rhythm arrangement, the tune sounds about as deep as a toothpaste jingle.Until you start paying attention, that is. Once you get past the blithe cheer of its melody, "Lovefool" reveals itself to be a dark and disturbing tale of romantic desperation, with a protagonist who would rather be lied to than left alone.

Yes, you heard that right - delicious irony fans - the former front man for Black Sabbath is going to be handing out hundreds of free hearing aids ... all these years after our parents warned us that listening to hard rock was going to damage our hearing.

An announcement that bands of debatable genius Black Sabbath and Blondie are among the latest inductees to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame gave us reason to explore the wide world of rock-related Web sites. rockhall.com: Introduced with a Buddy Holly quote honoring the eternal supremacy of rock's king, Elvis, the Web site of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has a "Today in rock history" feature, an animated music time line, and a schedule of the museum's traveling exhibitions. When we checked in, the site was in search of people who attended an Elvis Presley performance at Cleveland's Brooklyn High School in October 1955.
