War Pigs

~ Song

Annotation

"War Pigs" is the opening track on Paranoid, Black Sabbath's best-selling album. The outro to "War Pigs" has its own name, "Luke's Wall" (named in homage to the band's two-man road crew, Geoff "Luke" Lucas and Spock Wall). In the North American edition of the album, the songs "War Pigs" and "Fairies Wear Boots" were entitled "War Pigs / Luke's Wall" and "Jack the Stripper / Fairies Wear Boots", respectively.
