5. 'Fairies Wear Boots'
Black Sabbath were minor celebrities when they began writing the songs for Paranoid in 1970. However, not everyone in town loved the four guys with long hair who were suddenly making money and getting girls, especially a group of skinheads. The band was attacked one afternoon and Tony Iommi injured his arm in the melee. They wrote this song about the incident, referring to the attackers as "fairies." It was a brilliant form of revenge.
