Ozzy keeps his sense of humor, and his iconic laugh. On the opening track “Straight to Hell," Osbourne shows off his raunchy sense of humor with the line “I’ll make you scream; I’ll make you defecate, ha ha ha ha ha, followed with a ripping guitar solo by Slash. "Scary Little Green Men" talks of jealousy and envy in terms of homicidal Martians. “It’s a Raid,” is more of a silly hardcore punk song about paranoia. It ends with Ozzman screaming “Fuck you!”
