Never Say Die! is the eighth studio album by the English heavy metal band Black Sabbath, released in September 1978. It was the final Black Sabbath studio album to feature vocalist Ozzy Osbourne prior to his departure from the band in 1979 (until the 2013 album 13), and the last full studio album to feature the band's original lineup. It was certified Gold in the U.S on 7 November 1997 and as of November 2011 sold 133,000 copies in America since the SoundScan era. Critics called it unbalanced, scattering its energy in too many directions.
