The President of the United States has angered the Prince of Darkness.
It all began when technical difficulties arose in the 2020 Democratic primary debate. Donald Trump tweeted out a fan video which blended the footage of moderators Rachel Maddow and Chuck Todd along with the silhouetted entrance of Trump from the 2016 Republican National Convention. The problem? It used the 1980 hit 'Crazy Train' by Ozzy Osbourne.
Trump may have found it hilarious but Osbourne did not. In fact, a blizzard of Oz went on its way to denounce the usage of the track.
Osbourne's wife and manager Sharon Osbourne took to Twitter herself to not only distance 'Crazy Train' from Trump but to announce that action will be taken.
"Based on this morning’s unauthorized use of Ozzy Osbourne’s ‘Crazy Train,’ we are sending notice to the Trump campaign (or any other campaigns) that they are forbidden from using any of Ozzy Osbourne’s music in political ads or in any political campaigns. Ozzy’s music cannot be used for any means without approvals," say the Osbournes in the post.
This isn't the first time a musician has raised their voice against using their works for political campaigns, especially Trump's campaign. Queen, R.E.M, Neil Young, Everlast, and Aerosmith have previously demanded their music not be used for political agenda.
The Osbournes went on to cheekily suggest better alternatives for Trump to use in further campaigns.
"Perhaps he should reach out to some of his musician friends. Maybe Kanye West (‘Gold Digger’), Kid Rock (‘I Am the Bullgod’) or Ted Nugent (‘Stranglehold’) will allow use of their music."
Can't deny the points being made here!
