Sabbath vs. Zeppelin

"In reply to the Bill, Ozzy, Tony and Geezer fan who assured us that Mr. Osborne screams "yeah" 102 times on all six Black Sabbath albums (which I have myself) I would like to tell him that Zeppelin are twice as good and that Planty screamed 62 baby or babies, whichever you please, throughout ONE album, namely their first. Sabs OK, Zep rule.

Yours faithfully-
Mike, Perth, Scotland"

It doesn't stop there, either- a year after that letter was written, Johnny Rotten would set a record for "most uses of the word 'fuck' in a song" in "Bodies" off "Never Mind The Bollocks", which was at least a good a record as anything Zeppelin or Sabbath ever did.

and of course Mission of Burma got the most use of the word Dada in a song with "Max Ernst."
