Ozzy Osbourne - Bark at the Moon

Screams break the silence
Waking from the dead of night
Vengence is boiling
He's returned to kill the light
Then when he's found who he's looking for
Listen in awe and you'll hear him

Bark at the moon

(Laughs)

Years spent in torment
Buried in a nameless grave
Now he has risen
Miracles would have to save
Those that the beast is looking for
Listen in awe and you'll hear him

Bark at the moon
Hey, yeah
Bark at the moon

They cursed and buried him
Along with shame
And thought his timeless soul had gone (gone)
In empty burning hell--unholy one
But he's returned to prove them wrong
So wrong

Oh yeah, baby

(Guitar solo)

Howling in shadows
Living in a lunar spell
He finds his heaven
Spewing from the mouth of hell

Those that the beast is looking for
Listen in awe and you'll hear him
Bark at the moon.
Hey, yeah
Bark at the moon
Hey, yeah
Bark at the moon
Whoa Whoa Yeah,
Bark at the moon
(Howls)

"Bark at the Moon" is a metal song by Ozzy Osbourne. It is the first track on his 1983 album Bark at the Moon. The song was composed by Jake E. Lee and Bob Daisley with minor contributions from Osbourne and is four minutes and 14 seconds long. The song itself is about a mythical beast that once terrorized a town, was killed and then resurrected itself to once more wreak havoc. The music video, however, is about a scientist (played by Osbourne) who accidentally turns himself into a beast, is killed, and resurrected as a free human again. This song marked the first recording after the death of Ozzy's original guitarist Randy Rhoads, with replacement Jake E. Lee. The song was covered by the punk rock band Strung Out for the compilation Punk Goes Metal. Another cover was made by industrial metal band Violent Work Of Art in 1998 for the compilation Ozzified. A cover of the song is a playable track in the PlayStation 2 game Guitar Hero, where it, along with Cowboys from Hell by Pantera, is considered by many to be the game's most difficult song, it being the last song in the game's main list. It was also re-released as downloadable content for the Xbox 360 version of Guitar Hero II. A video of the song from the original Guitar Hero game can be seen here. The song is also featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on the radio station V-Rock This is the opening theme for the QMJHL team the Moncton Wildcats. The popular Canadian teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation, which is known for naming each episode after an 80s hit song, named an episode after this song. The music video for Bark at the Moon was partially filmed at the Holloway Sanitorium oustide of London, England.
