I have to say Ozzy because if Dio was better then people would be saying that and I think Dio would have had a band out that would have shown this as well, aside from Black Sabbath. Ozzy is very talented and is viewed as a rock and roll hall of famer so you tell me who was better, lol...

I've gotta go with Ozzy here. He just has a certain quality to his voice that no one else can really match.

I like both styles but this one is easy. Clearly, Ozzy is the better singer.

Dio is good an' all, but Ozzy's voice is legendary, for good reason. His voice is very unique.

JusTReaL : You do know that Dio was in more bands than just Sabbath, right? He had his own self-titled band Dio (Holy Diver), he was in Rainbow, Heaven & Hell (which was essentially Sabbath members forming a new band), and Elf? He was known for these other great bands other than just Black Sabbath, so at least give credit where credit is due.

That being said, I would still have to go with Ozzy being the better of the two singers of Black Sabbath. He was the voice of Sabbath when they first started, and to me he will always be the main voice behind Sabbath.

But overall Ozzy won, obviously.

Ozzy's voice is my personal pick, he's just legendary, and his voice was in the song "Paranoid" sohe clearly wins XD. But I can't hate on Dio, he was epic too.

Yeah, Ozzy is better, just the voice and the badass attitude (Cooler than Dio), "Paranoid", "Crazy Train" and all other songs that he sung in are all awesome.

Actually, Ozzy-era Sabbath and Dio-era Sabbath sound almost like two different bands... Dio is a better singer technically and his work with sabbath is exceptional (especially considering they made just 3 albums together, plus one as "heaven&hell")... BUT: Ozzy is Ozzy!! the feeling of the original black sabbath and the unique vocals give him the epic win! no band managed to reproduce this feeling or even get close to it.. C'mon it's the original Black Sabbath, you can't get better than that!

They're both awesome singers. Well I guess I have to use the past tense for Dio. R.I.P. Ronnie James Dio. But I always liked Ozzy's voice better.

superman fan : Just so you know, Geezer Butler wrote most of the lyrics, not Ozzy. At least in the earlier stuff, up through Paranoid. But I'd have to agree with you.

I don't like Dio Sabbath at all... I'm not saying Dio sucks by any means; I just don't like it. The original Black Sabbath was unique with that dark sound, dark lyrics, and Ozzy's one-of-a-kind voice. Dio-era Black Sabbath just sounds too... generic to me. It sounds like every other metal band from that decade. With songs like "Electric Funeral", I can't picture any other band writing it. That kind of stuff was their sound, and I've never heard another band (who wasn't imitating Black Sabbath) like them.

I agree that Dio, technical-wise, had a better voice. He was a classically better singer. But that technical stuff doesn't do anything for me; which is why I think Zakk Wylde, for example, is rubbish. I shouldn't say that... I just have no taste for his music. Although Ozzy's voice wasn't as "good", his singing had emotional power and frankly sounds rather haunting. I'll take heart over virtuoso any day.

StewartofGondor : yeah i know geezer butler was the one who wrote all the lyrics, he should of wrote them for dio also in my opinion. classic sabbath was always my favorite with there slow tempo and heavy sound. i'm hoping now with dio passed on that they will rejoin and make some new music, i'd like to see what they could do.
