|The Devil You Know track listing|
A music video for the song was made and premiered on VH1 Classic as the first video of Metal Mania. It came on right after the season 2 finale of That Metal Show, which Ronnie James Dio and Geezer Butler of Heaven & Hell were guests on. The video is in animation and features the band via shadows. The premise of the video is an angel in Heaven picks up a black book (a'la the song "Bible Black"). When he opens it, it sends him down to Hell.
Tony Iommi spoke his opinions on the video, calling it "bloody awful," and stating it was the only part of the album he was unhappy with, as well as the fact that the band had no involvement in it.
