Sounds of Birmingham at the BBC: The best Birmingham bands, artists, and performances from the previous 50 years are highlighted in this look back through the BBC’s archives. With a variety of tracks covering reggae, metal, ska, dance, rap, and pure pop, this compilation of Birmingham’s best acts demonstrates how England’s second city has led the way when it comes to musical diversity.

The hit performers include UB40, Dexys Midnight Runners, Duran Duran, Judas Priest, Joan Armatrading, ELO, Laura Mvula, The Streets, and Black Sabbath, whose classic track Paranoid receives its first BBC outing since 1970. This is an extremely rare opportunity to witness a young Ozzy Osbourne performing his signature moves before becoming a reality TV star.
