Back to the 'Tallica performance, the group chugged through a total of four covers, ranging from the Beatles and Rare Earth to Deep Purple and Ozzy himself. The footage was quick to surface, make sure to check it out below, along with the full set list.

"We are so proud to be a part of the tenth annual MusiCares MAP Fund benefit concert. It's no secret that Ozzy has been a major presence throughout our entire lives and we are so humbled and honored to be with Ozzy for this special evening," the band stated.

Ozzy ultimately took the stage as well, joining forces with Slash for yet another rockin' performance.
