Ozzy Osbourne's Black Sabbath have topped a list of the 100 best British rock albums of all time.
Follow-up album "Paranoid" was fifth in the poll voted by readers of Kerrang! magazine.
Ozzy appears in the list six times, more than any other artist. The Brummie rocker features four times with Black Sabbath and twice as a solo artist.
He said that Black Sabbath making the number one spot was a triumph for British rock.
"Back then you'd hear, 'if you go to San Francisco, be sure to wear a flower in your hair'. And we were like, 'what the f*** are they on about?' We lived in Aston, Birmingham, in drizzly rain. The only flowers I ever saw were on a gravestone in our local cemetery," The Sun quoted Ozzy as saying.
Kerrang's Top 100 features a mix of heavy metal, punk and glam rock.

Brian May announced that Queen would reform for a massive world tour with Paul Rogers as the vocalist. “I won’t go into more details right now, but, barring accidents, Queen and Paul Rodgers will be on the road, pretty much for sure, around April 2005,” May wrote on his official website, www.brianmay.com.
The shows will feature both Queen and Rodgers material. It is unknown whether original bass player John Deacon, who retired from live performances in 1997, will participate in the reunion.
