To mark the 30th anniversary of the release of Ozzy Osbourne’s quadruple-platinum album No More Tears, an updated version of the essential track “Hellraiser” is being unveiled. The newest version of the track features the first-ever official version of the song with a mash-up of vocals from Ozzy and the song’s co-writer, longtime friend and colleague Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead.
“I hope everyone enjoys the song,” Ozzy says. “This is just a small way to honor my friend Lemmy. Sharon and I talk a lot about how much we miss him.”
“Hellraiser” serves as one of four tracks that Lemmy co-wrote for the No More Tears album. Other mandatory entries include the the album’s most enduring selections including, “Mama, I’m Coming Home,” “Desire,” and “I Don’t Want to Change the World.” Motorhead would go onto record their own version of the track for their 1992 LP, March ör Die, but the most recent digital update is the first time that both Ozzy and Lemmy and heard on the same track.
