ozzy under the grave yardIt has been ten long years since the last time we had a single from the Prince Of Darkness, the Godfather of Metal himself Ozzy Osbourne. In 2010, he had released the album Scream with Guitarist Gus G and the album’s success was short lived. Fast forward ten years later and Ozzy has already recorded an album with Black Sabbath (13), did a farewell tour with them, and recorded a single with Rap artist Post Malone (Take What You Want). Ozzy has also had some downs to go with he ups as he had to cancel the rest of his farewell tour in 2018 due to some complications to pneumonia that sidelined the legend, but it was the recording with Post Malone that gave Ozzy hope again as he had a blast working with Post’s produce Andrew Watt. He had so much fun with Andrew Watt that he decided to record a solo album with him playing guitar and rounding out the band was Duff McKagan (GNR) on Bass and Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers) on drums. There are reports that are saying that even Ozzy is calling this new album the best work he has ever done and when you listen to Under The Graveyard (This week’s rock single of the week) which is the latest single, you are hopeful for the rest of the album. Ozzy himself sounds absolutely amazing on the track that isn’t your prototypical ozzy song. There is a lot of alt-rock influence in it and you can hear the inspiration for Post Malone’s track in this one. My only problem with the song is the initial guitar solo which is way too fuzzy for my liking, but we’ll see how Zakk Wylde (who had nothing to do with the album) interprets it live. Check out the single below:

take what you wantI know that this is going to be a highly contested entry due to the backlash the track is already getting online. The worst part about the backlash is not about how good or bad the actual song is, but due to the lack of knowledge on his fan base. I want to first start out by giving Post Malone a lot of credit for putting the Godfather of Heavy Metal Ozzy Osbourne on his track and while it’s not a new concept, it still deserves a lot of props. The song that I am referring to is the track Take What You Want which is featured on Post Malone’s newest album Hollywood’s Bleeding. The track not only features Ozzy Osbourne, but it also features one of hip hop’s hottest artists in Travis Scott as well. The track starts off with that semi-acoustic, clean channel guitar playing that is very similar to Ozzy’s Mama, I’m Coming Home, but it is definitely not. I meant more in the way the track starts, but Ozzy kicks off the song singing the chorus before Post Malone takes over with the verse and then it’s forward from there. The track itself is very catchy and Ozzy does an amazing job lending his vocals to the track. The one thing that I am wondering though is who is the guitar player at the end that shreds an amazing guitar solo because it sounds like Zakk Wylde’s playing. Anyways, I am sure we will find out soon enough who the guitar player is, but I do know that Chad Smith from the Red Hot Chili Peppers is playing drums on the track. I wanted to end this article by saying that even though most of his fans do not know who Ozzy is, this is a good opportunity for them to learn just who he is. So, check out the track below and enjoy.

We are going to keep this short and sweet because the pictures describe it better than words can so here are all the winners for both the movies and the music sides. For the wrestling side of it, please click here to go to Mr. X’s Punch Out to see those.

Just like last week, we are giving you two singles of the week with one being on the rock side while the other is on the metal side. I am super excited for this week’s rock side of the single of the week because it comes from the legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers. It’s been quite some time since the last time we heard any new music from the band and now they have answered your prayers. The band has a new record called The Getaway which comes out June 17TH and it’s available on Vinyl, Cassette, CD, and digitally of course (check them out here). The band has also unveiled the first single off the record entitled Dark Necessities which starts off very differently than any thing we had heard before from the group. A Very melodic intro, but never fear because Flea’s bass playing comes right in and drives the track along with Anthony Kiedis’s vocals. The track is absolutely amazing and I love the direction the band heads in with this track. They are always re-inventing themselves and they do it flawlessly . Last year in an interview, Anthony Kiedis talked about the album saying, “We’ve been writing new music for the last year, and we’ve written some songs that I feel are as good as any songs we’ve ever written. We’re just dying to play the new songs — but we can’t, because every single human has a recording device on them at all times.” He went on to talk about producer Danger Mouse saying, “He’s very good about coming up with super-modern ideas, but he’ll also touch on the acoustic guitar in the control room and strip the song down to its acoustic essentials, which is a beautiful place to be.” Check out the track below:

rattFor today’s soundtrack Saturday track, we are going to one of my all time favorite Keanu Reeves films in Point Break which co-stars Patrick Swayze, Gary Busey, Lori Petty, and even The Red Hot Chili Pepper’s own Anthony Kiedis in this bad ass surfer/heist movie. The film contains one of my all time favorite Ratt songs that is truly also one of their most bad ass songs in Nobody Rides For Free. The song starts off very melodic with a great guitar riff and a bad ass bass line to go along with it from Juan Croucier. The song has tons of swagger and coolness that just oozes out of it and overall it’s just an amazing rock song that features a kick ass guitar solo from Warren DeMartini. The song actually fits the film perfectly as well in this story of bank robbers who end up being surfers as well as the cool, calm, and collective agent Johnny Utah who is on the case. The soundtrack also featured songs from The Concrete Blondes, Shark Island, Little Caesar, L.A. Guns, and so many more. Check out the song below and check out the film if you never have before you see the remake that is coming out this summer.
