Summer is finally here, which means you will most likely want to whip up your favorite sunglasses rather than protect your eyes from the sun’s rays.

Then you have Ozzy Osbourne‘s signature round shades, which he pretty much wears everywhere he goes. Rob Halford seen in sunglasses more often than not as it is Avenged Sevenfold‘s M Shadows.
