Remember when Ozzy Osbourne bit the head off a bat during a concert? It’s back, in NFT form.

According to Rolling Stone UK, the metal legend is launching his own run of non-fungible tokens inspired by that infamous 1982 incident. The collection, titled CryptoBatz, consists of 9,666 digital bats designed by Ozzy in collaboration with the NFT studio Sutter Systems.

“I’ve been trying to get in on the NFT action for a while,” Ozzy says. “I asked Sharon for a Bored Ape for Christmas after several failed attempts of buying my own, and she said no, so I decided to create my own.”

“CryptoBatz is a f***ing mental project for NFT collectors and fans,” the Black Sabbath frontman adds. “The design pays tribute to one of my most iconic on-stage moments and is a chance to acquire a rare piece of art history. I love it!”

CryptoBatz is set to launch in January.
