Ozzy Osbourne – Story by Anne Erickson

A statement from Ozzy Osbroune and Sharon states President Trump should use music from Kid Rock, Kanye West or Ted Hugent instead

It’s getting close to election season, and that means candidates will likely use music on the campaign trail that they aren’t given approval to use. Such is the case this week, when President Donald Trump tweeted out a video with the background music to Ozzy Osbourne’s “Crazy Train.”

Well, Ozzy’s wife and manager, Sharon Osbourne, does not approve. She has send out a statement saying that Ozzy’s music cannot be used by the Trump campaign.

“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,” an official statement reads.

It continues, “Ozzy’s music cannot be used for any means without approvals. In the meantime, I have a suggestion for Mr. Trump–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.”

The statement also included a link to President Trump’s tweet, which featured the video. It started with a clip from this week’s Democratic debate on MSNBC, when a private discussion between moderators Lester Holt, Savannah Guthrie and Jose Diaz-Balart was airing even though they had left the stage for the second half of the night and replaced by Chuck Todd and Rachel Maddow. After the clip, the screen goes blank, and Trump’s tweet has the music “Crazy Train” pop up with an image of him walking on to a stage. The tweed ends with the Trump/Pence 2020 logo.
