Where is Ozzy Osbourne’s Billion?


Recently Evanescence reached Spotify’s 1 billion streaming club. This got me thinking. Who else is on the list? As of the date of this article, the list has 568 songs. In it, you’ll find various artists of all genres. Many artists make several appearances on this list. In looking at the rock, hard rock, and heavy metal categories you’ll find many familiar names such as:

  • AC/DC
  • Aerosmith
  • Foo Fighters
  • Guns N’ Roses
  • Journey
  • Linkin Park
  • Metallica
  • Nirvana
  • System of a Down

It’s what I didn’t find that surprised me. No Ozzy Osbourne. No Black Sabbath. Is this right? How could this be? There must be a mistake. A man who inspired generations of musicians. A man with a festival in his namesake has yet to make this list. Ozzfest featured artists on this very list. I double-checked. Neither made the list, yet…

Black Sabbath is the closest to the goal with the song “Paranoid” having just over nine hundred seventy-five million (975,806,813) streams. I’m confident fans will push this over the 1 billion hurdle well before year-end 2024. A little extra effort never hurts. #BlackSabbathBillion

Up next is Ozzy himself. Currently the song “Crazy Train” stands at a little over six hundred twenty million (6260,593,259) streams. This is where the campaign needs to kick into full gear. Ozzy is preparing for his final two performances this year. Fans, let’s give Ozzy a sendoff and catapult this song into the 1 billion streams club. #OzzyBillion

It’s well known that Ozzy isn’t the biggest fan of streaming companies and how they pay royalties, however the 1 billion streams milestone carries significance. It further solidify’s an artists enduring legacy and ongoing connection with fans. The ability to commemorate this achievement in spite of all the pain Ozzy has endured over the recent years. This will help shed light on a man that was once the pariah of the media in the 1980’s to the toast of the town with their hit reality TV show The Osbournes in the early 2000’s.
