    In reference to the Ozzy/Primus song, what does N.I.B. stand for?

  4. It doesn't mean anything.

    In an interview with Tony Ionmie, he said that it was an untitled song that was really popular with a friend of the band they called Nib, because his beard looked like the nib of a marker. When it came time to do the track listing, they decided to put it in all caps and make it look like an acronym.

    I know the original is by Sabbath, but the version I listen to and prefer listening to is by Primus, featuring Ozzy.

    Being from Wisconsin, I could tell you what F.I.B. (pronounced "fib") stands for.

    Well according to freaky fender's story, that's probably just the name of the album, NOT the song.
