About Die Young

"Die Young" is a single by British rock band Black Sabbath from their 1980 album, Heaven and Hell. It was performed live during all the 1980 and 1981 tours (Ronnie James Dio), and returned to the set for the tours of 1986 (Glenn Hughes, Ray Gillen) 1987 (Tony Martin), 1989 (Tony Martin), 1990 (Tony Martin), and 1992 (Ronnie James Dio). Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi customarily plays a lengthy instrumental introductory passage to the song when performing live, with heavy atmospheric keyboard backing. A live rendition can be heard on Live from Radio City Music Hall, recorded in 2007 by Heaven & Hell, a band formed of members of Black Sabbath from the Mob Rules- and Dehumanizer-era lineups. In honour of ex-Vio-Lence manager Debbie Abono and Ronnie James Dio's passing, Machine Head's Robb Flynn recorded and released, free, an online cover of Die Young. Abono managed Flynn and Machine Head guitarist Phil Demmel when they were members of the Vio-Lence.

Yell with the wind, though the wind won't help you fly at all
Your back's to the wall
Chain the sun, and it tears away and it breaks you as you run
You run, you run
Behind the smile, there's danger and a promise to be told
You'll never get old, ha
Life's fantasy to be locked away and still to think you're free
you're free, you're free

So live for today
Tomorrow never comes

Die young, die young
Can't you see the writing on the wall?
Die young, gonna die young
Someone stopped the fall

Yell with the wind, though the wind won't help you fly at all
Your back's to the wall
Then chain the sun, and it tears away and it breaks you as you run
You run, you run

So live for today
Tomorrow never comes

Die young, young
Die young, die young
Die young, die young, young
Die young, die young, die young, die young, die young, die young, die young, die young

Black Sabbath are an English rock band, formed in Aston, Birmingham in 1969, by Ozzy Osbourne (lead vocals), Tony Iommi (guitar), Geezer Butler (bass guitar), and Bill Ward (drums).
