On March 12, 2006, Black Sabbath was FINALLY inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Artists become eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their first record. Black Sabbath's debut album, Black Sabbath, was released in 1970. Which means that they had been eligible since 1995 and didn't get in until 2006???????

Sabbath released 19 studio albums and have sold over 70 million copies of their albums worldwide and it took an additional 11 years of eligibility to get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?

Even more appalling is that the band's vocalist, Ozzy Osbourne, has not yet been inducted as a solo artist. Ozzy has released 12 solo albums with sales over 51 million as a solo artist.

Ozzy's first solo album was released in 1980, meaning that that he's been eligible for the Hall of Fame (as a solo artist) since 2005.
