I was always able to look past the hilarious campy posturing - "would you like to see the pope at the end of a rope" (Ozzy) is outright side-splitting. I just think the music by Sabbath, early-mid Priest, Maiden, Budgie, Voivod, etc. is just outstanding stuff. Categorize away, it matters little to me. Very refreshing to hear your story of the English class. It's a hell of a lot better than a trial for suicide!
