'I am sickened and disgusted by the use of Crazy Train to promote messages of hate and evil by a church,' he says of the Westboro Baptist Church.
Ozzy Osbourne has blasted religious leaders in Kansas for using the lyrics to his song "Crazy Train" to promote messages of hate and evil. The rocker was appalled when he learned that members of the Westboro Baptist Church had paraphrased lyrics from the song at a post-Supreme Court hearing press conference in Washington, D.C. - after telling reporters the U.S. deaths in Afghanistan and Iraq are "punishment for America's tolerance of homosexuality and abortion".
He says, "I am sickened and disgusted by the use of Crazy Train to promote messages of hate and evil by a church."
"Crazy Train" is 1980 song written by Ozzy Osbourne, Randy Rhoads and Bob Daisley for Osbourne's debut album "Blizzard of Ozz". It has been covered by many musicians including Bullet for My Valentine, Slipknot and Korn.
