This was obviously an April Fool's gag. For the full list of our 2016 jokes, head here.

Heavy metal veteran Glen Danzig has confirmed that his eponymous band is following up the latest record, "Skeletons," which consisted of numerous cover versions including the Black Sabbath classic, "N.I.B." with a whole album devoted to Black Sabbath covers.

His cover of the aforementioned song received substantial feedback from social media as well as internet comment sections and the explicit music video for the song has thus far received over 150,000 views on YouTube.

With such a strong reaction to it, the singer, who claims he has found his definitive vocal style at last, will be returning to the studio to artistically interpret such classics as "Paranoid," "War Pigs," "The Wizard" and the previously instrumental piece, "Fluff," which he has penned lyrics for.

No confirmation has yet been received as to whether the videos for these songs will feature more porn stars.

What's Next?

I think a missed opportunity would be a Black Sabbath covers album. Everyone and their mom has done a Sabbath cover. How awesome would it be for Sabbath to flip it around and cover songs by the artists they influenced?

I'd like to hear Danzig sing "Paranoid," but in the style of the Misfits. That song was punk before punk was even a thing.
