Movie Quote of the Day – The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years, 1988 (dir. Penelope Spheeris)
Posted by Marya E. Gates
Ozzy Osbourne: Very often I ask them what they think I would be doing if I wasn’t in rock n’ roll and I kept saying, my answer to that is “probably in prison.”
Penelope Spheeris: Why is that?
Ozzy Osbourne: I didn’t want to get a regular job. I couldn’t conform to any system. I didn’t want to get a job in a fac–I had several jobs in a factories, you know, different jobs. But rock n’ roll has this sort of outlaw-ish thing thing with it. You can do what you want to. You don’t have to get up and listen to some big fat balding old fart telling you take this box and stick it over there.
