    General CommentIn case you don't know, the only thing to say about this is that if you take the title as Roman numerals, you get the word 'EVIL'.

    E = E
    V = 5
    I = 1
    L = 50

    General CommentRight after the pick slide on the guitar it says:

    "Fade Into Shadow...You...You Fools."

    General CommentAccording to Sabbath no one recorded any voices on the track yet somone says "You. You (Unkown word)" Everyone in the band freaked but Dio thought it was cool. This made the band think Dio was a demon or somthing along those lines and they almost kicked him out of Black Sabbath.

    General CommentYou're kidding. Wow. I was wondering...because I've read that 5150 is LAPD radio code for 'escaped mental patient,' and that's why Eddie Van Halen named his studio and his signature amp so. Coincidence?

    General CommentWell, I've no idea about that, but I'm sure there are some new fans who wouldn't have known that, and there's fuck all else to say about the song.

    General Comment5150 is code for something related to mental patients, because being "51-50'd" means getting sent to the mental asylum. at least that's the term i've come to know.
