52 Years Ago: “War Pigs”
Well-known political scientist Ozzy Osbourne nailed it
My son and I rock out every morning while I drive him to school — we trade off as car DJ. I’ve heard “War Pigs” by Black Sabbath hundreds of times in my life but today was different. It hit me like a ton of bricks and got me pissed off, just as Ozzy intended.
Here are the lyrics to “War Pigs” — which is one of the best anti-war rock songs ever recorded. Ozzy correctly points out the role of corrupt military leadership, propaganda and brainwashing, and the sociopathy that enables it all — more than a half century ago.
Here is the live version recorded in December 1970. You get your inspiration where you can get it. 🇺🇸🇬🇧🇺🇦
