Black Sabbath, the band that created heavy-metal music, could not envision making rock history when the band formed in Birmingham, England, in the late 1960s. Back then, the poor and working-class young men of Black Sabbath were hoping to simply make a living playing music so that they could escape a life confined to boring factory work. Black Sabbath’s journey from Birmingham to the big time is a remarkable story of highs and lows, of fallout and reconciliation. Their music and their aggressive, rebellious nature have inspired and influenced countless bands in a number of rock genres, from hard rock and heavy metal to punk to rap.

Justin Timberlake's "Friends with Benefits" movie

Justin Timberlake stars in the new movie, Friends with Benefits that opens in theaters on July 22nd.

Justin is probably best known for being a member of the band 'N Sync. But did you know that in 1992 Justin made his TV debut on the talent show Star Search? Although he didn't win the competition, shortly after that, his mother took him to an audition for a role as a "Mouseketeer" on Disney's The All New Mickey Mouse Club. He became part of the cast in 1993 when Justin was just barely twelve years old. Impressed with Timberlake's talent, a man who put together new music groups named Chris Kirkpatrick, asked Justin to audition for a new group he was forming. This group would later become 'N Sync. They released their first album in the United States on March 24, 1998 and it wasn't long before the album sold a million copies. Justin would later launch his solo singing career and eventually broke into acting.
