Actually, the Ozzy song came out first.

"Mama, I'm Coming Home" was released in 1991. "The Night Santa Went Crazy" was released in 1996.

Yes it does. I noticed that a while ago. The beginning definately sounds like the Ozzy song. The rest of the songs sounds an awfully lot like "Black Gold" by Soul Asylum.

Even if Al was "influenced" by Ozzy, "The Night Santa Went Crazy" is still a good song (and mandatory listening music on the days leading up to Christmas, especially if your sister has unwisely left her young, impressionable children in your care :D ). Of course, the Ozzy song isn't to shabby in its' own right....
