NEW OZZY SINGLE WILL APPARENTLY FEATURE THE SOUNDS OF A PRISON RIOT
So for weeks the Ozzy camp has been making a big deal out of the fact that the Ozman’s new single, “Let Me Hear You Scream,” was going to debut on an episode of one of the various CSI programs; the show aired last night, aaaannnndddd… THE FUCKING SONG PLAYED DURING A PRISON RIOT SCENE, making it impossible to give a proper listen. In other words, if you tuned in and you’re not a CSI fan, you pretty much got screwed.
I don’t know why I’m surprised; heaven forbid that Ozzy do anything even remotely cool in the 21st century, right? And yet, I can’t help but be angry. Fuck, I didn’t even watch the show live last night (I knew it would surface on the net within hours) and I’m pissed. Let us hear the song, or don’t promote the episode as a chance to hear the song. It’s not complicated. Just don’t be a corporate dill hole for ten seconds. Jesus.
Anyway, here’s the clip from the show in which Gus G.’s guitar player was deemed less important than one of the dudes from L O S T shouting some nonsense. Watch it before Les Moonves’ lawyers yank it down. The consolation prize is that what I can hear isn’t all that impressive.
And hopefully the actual song will surface soon enough.
Scream, Ozzy’s latest, will be out June 15 on Epic.
