Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne Top Bill on One-Day Ozzfest in Dallas

May 13, 2008 11:15 AM ET

After months of speculation, the official Ozzfest site announced the date, site and lineup for this year's Ozzfest. The event will take place on August 9th and will be held at the unfortunately named Pizza Hut Park in Dallas, TX. Ozzy Osbourne himself tops a bill that also includes Metallica, Serj Tankian and Jonathan Davis on the main stage. Two other stages will feature up-and-comers like Devildriver, Witchcraft and the Sword. This is the first year in its twelve year history that Ozzfest won't be a touring festival, and unlike last year's version (which featured Ozzy, Lamb of God and Black Tide), fans will actually have to pay to get in. Tickets go on sale on Saturday, May 31st.

Song Stories

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
