  • The track has become a fan-favorite amongst fans and was included in the "We Sold Our Soul For Rock 'n Roll" greatest hits album.
  • "Sweet Leaf" is a Metal song by Black Sabbath which is about marijuana. The band did a lot of marijuana and many other drugs around this time. This was the song that coined the phrase "Sweet Leaf" as slang for marijuana. They got the name from a pack of Irish Cigarettes that said "It's the sweet leaf." They thought that Sweet Leaf was a great description of marijuana, and the entire band wrote the song together. (thanks, Brett - Edmonton, Canada) The sound at the beginning is Tony Iommi coughing after inhaling marijuana smoke from a bong. A Sabbath tribute band from Denmark is named Sweet Leaf.

They thought that Sweet Leaf was a great description of marijuana, and the entire band wrote the song together. (thanks, Brett - Edmonton, Canada) The sound at the beginning is Tony Iommi coughing after inhaling marijuana smoke from a bong. Godsmack covered this on the 2000 Black Sabbath tribute album Nativity In Black II. The guitar riff was taken from Frank Zappa & The Mothers of Invention's "Hungry Freaks, Daddy." This riff can also be heard at the end of the Red Hot Chili Peppers song "Give It Away" and is the basis for the song "Rhymin' and Stealin'" by The Beastie Boys. (thanks, mike - Asheville, NC) A Sabbath tribute band from Denmark is named Sweet Leaf. This has been covered by Next Step Up, Stock Mojo, Garbage, Ancient, Ugly Kid Joe, Butthole Surfers, Mogwai, Stereolab, Agent Steel, Pimpadelic, Cadaver, and Widespread Panic. {| class="collapsible collapsed" style="width: 100%; text-align: center;"
