Black Sabbath Metal Bench to be Unveiled in Birmingham

Wonder how long it will take for this Black Sabbath fixture to be tagged with lyrics?

The latest tribute to the metal pioneers is a metal bench that will be unveiled in their native Birmingham, England on February 9.  Per local Birmingham outlet, the bench will feature images of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler and Bill Ward and will be placed on the recently renamed Black Sabbath Bridge.  Engraved on the bench will be “Made in Birmingham 1968.”

Actually, now I wonder how long it’ll take for someone to cross out “1968” and put “666” instead.

A mock-up of the bench can be seen below.
