Ozzy Osbourne Drops Riotous New Video For Straight To Hell

The forthcoming new album from Ozzy Osbourne, Ordinary Man, feels like it might be his most relevant in decades. While the singles we've heard thus far have still have all the audacious biker metal that fans of the prince of darkness still hunger for, they've also included a lot of quieter introspective moments and weird, unusual lyrics that feel like Ozzy branching out a bit. The videos have also been cinematic and uncommon, rather than the usual compilations of slow-mo shots featuring Ozzy in an overcoat. The first, for Under The Graveyard, featured Jack Kilmer as Ozzy on the verge of self-destruction. Now, Ozzy has released the second, for the single Straight To Hell, which goes hard on the politics...and the property damage.

Straight To Hell obviously takes its cues from the political activism rampant over the past decade, from Occupy Wall Street to Black Lives Matter to Antifa. The latter of those movements is definitely where the majority of the imagery comes from, with the "activists" in question playing footsoldiers of chaos against the order of the cops they're facing. At times, it smacks a little of the 'bad people on both sides' argument, with the protesters seeming more like murderers from The Purge than modern social justice warriors -- but as Ozzy sits and watches, cloaked in black and gold, it's obvious that he's not there to spread charity and good will (he is Ozzy, after all).
