A Black Sabbath song from their first album. The Abbreviation is often misinterpreted as "Nativity In Black," but instead was simply what the band called their guitarist's goatee at the time.
N.I.B is one of my favorite Black Sabbath songs.

A Black Sabbath song. Contrary to common belief, "N.I.B." doesn't stand for "Nativity In Black," in fact, it doesn't stand for anything. Drummer Bill Ward had a beard that singer Ozzy Osbourne said looked like a pen nib. The band named the song after the nib and added initials so the name would be more mysterious. There are two Black Sabbath tribute albums named Nativity in Black, based on the faux acronym.
