Watch Mac Sabbath Play "Pair-a-Buns" on Sam Roberts Show

A few weeks ago, Mac Sabbath—that ever-fascinating, costumed, fast-food-themed Black Sabbath cover band that we all know and love—performed on Sam Roberts’ Show on SiriusXM’s Opie Radio.

Below, you can check out our exclusive premiere of the band's performance of "Pair-a-Buns," the first clip to be released from the bizarre broadcast. "Pair-a-Buns" is, of course, the band's hilarious version of Black Sabbath's "Paranoid."

Mac Sabbath's performance happened to take place during Roberts' birthday show, so there were several special guests in the vicinity, including Mike Odd, DJWhooKid, DJEnvy and more. The whole building was in an uproar, and a crowd formed outside the studio to see what the hell was going on. You can see some of it go down in the video.

Mac Sabbath also have released their upcoming tour dates, and you can see them directly below the video.
