War Pigs

FAUX News seems to have their collective panties in a twist over the new Stones song Sweet Neo-Con. Cavuto even suggested a possible boycott. So much for free speech. I wonder what their reaction would be if Black Sabbath had released War Pigs in this day and age.
War Pigs

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcerers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds, oh lord yeah!
Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to the poor
Time will tell on their power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating people just like pawns in chess
Wait 'till their judgement day comes, yeah!
Now in darkness, world stops turning
As the war machine keeps burning
No more war pigs of the power
Hand of god has struck the hour
Day of judgement, god is calling
On their knees, the war pigs crawling
Begging mercy for their sins
Satan, laughing, spreads his wings

Who would have thought that song would still be as relevant today as it was 30+ years ago ? Some things never change !

...and by Black Sabbath no less! Prophets indeed.

Summer of 2003 I went to Ozzfest.. There was a bit of controversy surrounding the video on the big screen when sabbath played war pigs. Apparently Ozzy had toned it down where the original had Chimpy side by side with Hitler and the other war pigs.

I saw him again last summer, which was about 2 months after he had broken his neck in an ATV accident, and he was just his usual rocking self.

Ozzy is flat out amazing. I've seen him on that Osbournes show a few times, and he seemed totally incoherent, but when he's on stage he's incredible. And the voice.. wow.
