Has anyone noticed the growing amount of Rap artists that are nicking the famous Crazy Train riff and then looping it for their own songs.

Hollywood Undead have done it for their track "undead" and I heard my sister playing some other track by a different artist where they had taken several samples from the song and then randomly added them into their own track.

I don't know any single person that listens to Crazy Train and does not like it but what possess them to use it in a rap song? Isn't it also disrespectful to both Ozzy and Randy for the actual effort they put into the song as well?

Anybody's view on this topic would be much appreciated..

I have to agree with this, sampling is the backbone of Hip-Hop, old school hip hoppers did it with old funk stuff etc, and today they use all sorts of music, metal included.

Now see, this is where the real problem lies.. the lack of pics to support your claim of having a sister.

So no one has a problem with hip-hop artists sampling other peoples tracks and then using that tracks to become more commercially successful?

Man that sucks..

Oh and admirations to the jokers who enjoy making gags about my sister, very orginal.

Metal wasn't off-limits back then, either. Public Enemy's song "She Watch Channel Zero" samples the Angel of Death riff.
Josh Homme writes the greatest lyrics EVAR:
"I wish we could get away
Drink wine and screw"


"Nicotine, valium, vicodin, marijuana, ecstasy, and alcohol
C-C-C-C-Cocaine!"


"I wanna lick you too much"

You just need to get a license to do it, even if the band denies you permission you can get something called a compulsory license and do it anyway. It costs money to do so, I hope you all know. You can't just do this stuff for free, the original artists usually get a royalty cut or a large cash payment up front.
