Black Sabbath Paranoid
Paranoid was initially going to be called War Pigs, until Black Sabbath’s record label, Vertigo, feared the title would alienate a US fanbase at the height of the Vietnam War. By the time the label renamed the album after the song they felt had the most hit potential (Paranoid peaked at No 4 in the UK singles charts), Marcus Keef had already dressed a model in neon pink clothing, given him a DayGlo sword and pMusic Postersaahotographed him running through a forest at night – his approximation of what a war pig would look like. The disparity between music and image didn’t hurt the album, which topped the UK charts and still remains the blueprint for every heavy metal long-player that’s emerged in its wake.
