zzy Osbourne sounds ready to bite somebody's head off.

The British rock god released a statement saying he was "disgusted" by a Kansas-based church's choice to play his music on the steps of the United States Supreme Court today.

"I am sickened and disgusted by the use of 'Crazy Train' to promote messages of hate and evil by a 'church,'" said Ozzy, referring to the iconic song off 1980's Blizzard Of Ozz.

And lest you think he was peeved about the organist playing Randy Rhoades' riff in the choir loft, read on...

The church in question is Westboro Baptist Church, a group known less for its choir than for its noisy, anti-gay protests staged at the funerals of US soldiers, regardless of the fallen's sexual orientation.

The small congregation, which chants things like "You're Going to Hell" and other feel-bad sentiments because it somehow associates dead soldiers with homosexuality in general, has garnered more attention now that their activities have turned into a free speech debate.

The father of Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, whose funeral attracted Westboro protesters, was awarded $5 million after suing the group and its founder Fred Phelps for emotional distress. The church appealed the ruling and the case is now going to be reviewed by the Supreme Court.

Which is where two of Phelps' adult daughters quoted Ozzy in song, singing, "You're going straight to hell on your crazy train." They looked pretty pleased with themselves for thinking that one up, too.

Maybe something from Ozzy's Diary of a Mad Man would have been more appropriate.

Thanks for the report to Sleazeroxx.com.

Why the fuck would a church use Ozzy's music? Because heavy metal and hard rock is for the devil isn't it?

The chorus is "You're going straight to hell on your crazy train.", so they sang the chorus to convey their message

I watched a documentary on it and some of the stuff they did was unbelievable. Those people are mentally ill. They were protesting ouside a shop that sold Swedish hoovers because their leader was arrested in Sweden 20 years ago or something. LOL

If an anti-gay church used my art... I'd explode. But I kinda doubt they'd go for my art though. Just saying.
