Ozzy Osbourne is marking the 40th anniversary of his solo debut, Blizzard of Ozz, with a new video for the record’s breakthrough single, “Crazy Train.” The clip features a lighthearted cartoon performance of the singer and his band rocking out to the clip, with cameos by bats, fangs, and the castle Osbourne took on tour with him to support the album.

Blizzard of Ozz originally came out in the U.K., where it debuted at Number Seven on the country’s charts, on September 20th, 1980. It was released in the U.S. in March of the following year and has since been certified five-times platinum.

Osbourne will continue the anniversary celebrations by participating in a “40 Years of Ozzy Osbourne’s Blizzard of Ozz” interview with Billy Morrison, who plays guitar in Billy Idol’s band, on his own Sirius XM channel, Ozzy’s Boneyard, at 5 p.m. Wonder if you'll be able to understand him.
