OZZY GONE WILD

Classic Rock - - The Dirt -

Over the years, Born To Be Wild has be­come the go-to cover ver­sion for any­one keen to em­pha­sise their re­bel­lious cre­den­tials, in­clud­ing Rose Tat­too, Riot, Raven, INXS and The Cult. It has also be­come the go-to choice of cover ver­sion for any­one keen to lam­poon the same, from elec­tronic duo the Moog Cook­book to Sacha Baron Co­hen’s Bo­rat, who used a ver­sion by Ro­ma­nian brass out­fit Fan­fare Ciocˇar­lia to sound­track his jour­ney across Amer­ica in an ice cream van.

Per­haps the strangest cover was by Ozzy Os­bourne, who duet­ted with Mup­pet Miss Piggy (pic­tured) on a ver­sion that ap­peared on 1994’s Ker­mit Un­pigged al­bum. “I’m not a big Miss fuck­ing Piggy fan!” said Ozzy. “But I like to do dif­fer­ent things to keep my head go­ing, you know what I mean?”
