If the idea of Ozzy Osbourne receiving knighthood sounds like an awesome idea to you, we'll glad to let you know that you're not alone.

An online petition over at is demanding that Black Sabbath singer gets the prestigious tile for over 40 years of service to the guitar-driven world.

"I am petitioning for Ozzy Osbourne, frontman for Black Sabbath to receive a Knighthood after over 40 years of service to the music industry. Birmingham born John Michael Osbourne, has been entertaining and inspiring a great many throughout his life, he has been a huge success world wide with many successful albums with both Black Sabbath as well as in his solo career. Now in his mid '60s, I believe the time has come for him to receive a Knighthood. Please consider Mr. Osbourne for this honor as it is well deserved and long over due," the description reads.

The petition has already fetched over 11,000 signatures and is requiring about 9,000 more to reach the goal. If you want to see the queen recognize Ozzy as a Sir he is, head over here for further details.

    Ozzy just seems like the complete opposite of someone who would be knighted, and because of that I think it would be bloody awesome if he got knighted.
    I agree, it would be awesome to have the archetypical "black knight". I vote yes.
    He's the prince of darkness, if he gets knighted it's like giving the finger to God. I really hope it happens.
    I'd prefer Tony Iommi to be honest.
    Hell, while we're at it, why don't we just have Bullet for My Valentine or Bring Me the Horizon knighted. Yeah, Tony Iommi is good, but come on, Ozzy definitely deserves it!
    How does Ozzy deserve it over Tony? In fact, Geezer and Tony before Ozzy if you ask me.
    Are you seriously trying to say that Tony only deserves to be knighted as much as BFMV and BMTH do?
    Not that i'm a scene kid or anything but I actually like those two bands. Not that I want them knighted however
    The hell are you talking about? Tony could play circles around them and hes missing parts of his fingers and has cancer for ****s sake! Anyways Tony does deserve it more than Ozzy does. Hell hes been the ONLY constant member of Black Sabbath for the FORTY SIX years of its existence.
    I think Jimmy Page needs to get knighted first. Imagine 'Sir Jimmy Page'.
    Fuck the king
    dey shud nite da king even doe he's nt brtash bcos ov dis qwote alon: "i am a ladys man dey tink i am cool and dis is bcoz i am cool i hav da coolest harecut " - KerryKing01
    Wha, I can't understand a damn thing you just said for pHoOks sake just sing it Ozzy!
    You could try google translate though I'm not sure prepubescent retard is available as a language.
    He's already dined with the former President of the USA, surely this is the next logical step!
    Blaaaaah.. Really? <.< let's get one of the biggest icons of rock 'n roll and ****-the-system-i-make-my-own-way attitude kneel before the queen of England and get a noble title? Meh.. Now i'm kind of sad.
    A knight is supposed to be an example! Ozzy is cool and all, but he is certainly not an example for anyone!!!
