Hailing from his post-Black-Sabbath debut solo album ‘Blizzard of Ozz’ – Osbourne’s song revolves around the fear of annihilation and anarchy during the Cold War, and is one of his best known and recognizable as a solo performer.
Not only was the song rated 9th greatest guitar solo ever by readers of Guitar World magazine, it was also ranked 9th by VH1 on their 40 Greatest Metal Songs list and was named the 23rd-greatest hard rock song of all time also by VH1 in ’09 – the highest placement by a solo artist on the list.
Now…GUESS WHO’S FINALLY MANAGED TO HELM YET ANOTHER NES-INSPIRED REARRANGEMENT OF IT!!
Original Song: Ozzy Osbourne, alongside Randy Rhoads, Lee Kerslake and Bob Daisley (Jet Records, RIP / Epic Records, 1980) – under FAIR USE (NO INFRINGEMENT/PLAGIARISM INTENDED)
