Dio – Holy Diver
Foo Fighters – Something From Nothing
‘Holy Diver’ was the title track from the debut album for Dio in 1983. Ronnie James Dio had just left Black Sabbath and formed his own band with Black Sabbath drummer at the time Vinny Appice.
The track reached no 40 on the US Top 40 in 1981. It was more recently parodied in a South Park sketch were Dio performs the song at a school dance.
Dio also featured Rainbow’s Jimmy Bain and Sweet Savage’s Vivian Campbell who went on to join Whitesnake then Def Leppard.
