Ozzy Osbourne may have originated the song “Hellraiser” on his 1991 No More Tears album, but it is probably more well known for Motorhead’s Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth cover version and subsequent music video in which Lemmy challenges Pinhead to a card game for his mortal soul.
Actually, the Motorhead “Hellraiser” is probably only slightly more well known because Ozzy never released his original version as a single; whereas Motorhead’s version was released as promotion for both their latest album at the time and the third Hellraiser flick. Hey, you never saw Ozzy Osbourne on “The Tonight Show” performing “Hellraiser” as Jay Leno provided ear plugs to the studio audience and guest Edie McClurg sat mortified on the couch.
