The sound had less to do with the escapist tone of most popular music and more to do with the desperation and frustration of living in the detritus of post-World War II Europe. The eponymous album by Black Sabbath , which was released in Europe on February 13, , and in North America on June 1 of the same year, was like nothing hard rock fans had ever heard. There were elements of Led Zeppelin and Cream in there, sure, but the music was grimmer and far less euphoric. Instead of flaunting exuberant energy, Sabbath focused on the bleak and barren, confronting listeners with buzzing, overdriven guitars, meandering bass, lumbering beats and nasal, almost sepulchral vocals that sliced through the organized cacophony like a scalpel through a corpse. It was loud, it was weird and, for many, it was almost an overwhelming sensory overload. Rarely was the tritone heard in popular music; it was most often heard along with the haunting noises in horror film soundtracks.

Then the song started moving units in the millions and climbed its way up the US Billboard charts, peaking at number 36 in , and at number three on the UK Singles Chart. Hip-hop is pop culture now. Hip-hop has become a dominant cultural force, driving conversations about music, literature, and entertainment forward. Cardi B and Common are movie stars.
