8. Never Say Die!
Though the title track would prove to be the band's biggest hit since Paranoid in the UK Singles Chart, the final album released during Ozzy's seventies stint - albeit after a moment where he quit and was replaced with ex-Fleetwood Mac man Dave Walker - is a softer beast than most.
If anything, it helped further sharpen the pop-hook chops Osbourne would show on his first solo offerings after his exit from the band, with its self-titled opener and the melodic Air Dance among some of the tighter compositions - but this is best remembered as sub-standard Sabbath.
Their renewed singles success though did score the band a Top of the Pops appearance - alongside Bob Marley of all people - but the group's live issues were only exacerbated on the subsequent tour when a young, virile Van Halen opened up for them across the UK.
It would prove to be the straw that broke the camel's back; after returning to the studio the following year, tensions came to a head and Osbourne was duly fired in April 1979, paving the way for him to finish working on his solo project which would become Blizzard of Ozz.
