Never let the bastards drag you around, someone wise once said. Well, OZZFEST, the bastard of summer festivals, plans to do exactly that this summer when the inimitable King of the Road stomps and tramples its way across North America for 32 shows, dragging all that glorious, muckraking noise along with it.

Seven years running The Ozzfest has brought the best hard rock and metal to amphitheaters coast to coast and this summer will top them all. Continuing his Down to Earth World Tour Ozzy Osbourne, hot off the phenomenal success of The Osbournes, will return with a searing solo set and his tightest band ever, the rejuvenated Zakk Wylde, Robert Trujillo, and Mike Bordin.

The staging is top secret and promises to be his biggest production ever. Ozzfest alum System of a Down will bring to the table a feast of hopped-up fusion rock the likes of which keep getting crazier and more challenging. No wonder they’ve garnered such high praise for their latest, Toxicity.

Touring for the first time will be the new band featuring Chris Cornell, Tim Commerford, Tom Morello, and Brad Wilk, a project that promises to be stunning on all fronts. The hush-hush recording sessions have spawned rumors of all kinds but the goods will be laid out for all to see on the Ozzfest stage.

Double Platinum sensations P.O.D. and Ozzfest 2001 screamers Drowning Pool both are planning to assault the senses, while Adema and Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society will open the main stage bill.

The second stage headliner this year is none other than Rob Zombie who will be playing a stripped down, bare bones “jeans and t-shirt” set, something the Zombie man hasn’t done since the days fermenting his act in the bowels of New York.

The rest of the rest: Swedish marauders Meshuggah, Apex Theory, Lost Prophets, Pulse Ultra, and Neurotica. Splitting the tour in half will be Flaw, Mushroomhead, 3rd Strike, Otep, Seether, Glassjaw, Used, Soil, Ill Nino, and Chevelle.

In addition to three stages of music, The Village of the Damned, the circus-like concourse of attractions, exhibitors (featuring, as always, piercing booths and tattoo parlors), and exhibitionists (breast painting anyone?) will return with its diversions for the restless.

Responsible for exposing the Heavyweights of Rock year in, year out, The Ozzfest continues to shine in the absence of critical acclaim and media smothering. Let it Rock!
