Master Of Reality is widely recognized as one of the greatest heavy metal albums of all time. Its influence can be felt in several genres, including stoner rock, grunge and doom metal, among others. It also emerged as a major musical influence on the skateboarding scene.

The DC X Black Sabbath Collection was made in collaboration with the music-centric fashion brand Bravado.

In addition, DC Shoes has put out a limited-edition tribute album, Shadow Of Reality, which covers Master Of Reality in its entirety.
