Released on 28 September 1978, Never Say Die! is the eighth studio album by Black Sabbath. It was the last studio album with the band’s original line-up and the last studio album to feature original vocalist Ozzy Osbourne until the 2013 album 13.

It was certified Gold in the U.S on 7 November 1997 and as of November 2011 has sold 133,000 copies in the United States since the SoundScan era. The album received mixed reviews, with critics calling it ‘unbalanced’ and insisting its energy was scattered in too many directions.

Speaking in October 1978 of the new album, Osbourne said, ‘It’s a combination of what we’ve all been through in the last ten years. It’s a very varied album. Like, we started out playing in blues clubs, because British blues – like John Mayall and early Fleetwood Mac – was the thing at the time. We were into a twelve-bar trip and early Ten Years After-style stuff. So it’s part of that sort of trip. Then there’s the heavy thing and the rock thing. It’s not just steamhammer headbanging stuff all the way through… We got rid of all our inner frustrations: what each of us individually wanted to put down over the years but couldn’t because of the pressures of work. So we put a lot of painstaking hours into developing this album.’
