Somewhere along the line, a drummer must have crossed Ozzy Osbourne and caused irrevocable damage, because boy, are Black Sabbath anti-drummers. First, they booted original drummer Bill Ward from all reunion activities — including their first album in 35 years, 13, and supporting world tour. Now, they’ve relegated world record-holding drummer Andrew W.K. to a DJ slot for their upcoming tour. #kanyeshrug

According to Andrew W.K.’s website, he’ll “perform a special DJ set every night before the definitive heavy metal band takes the stage. Andrew promises to spin a rabble-rousing selection of classic riffs, heavy jams, and crowd pleasing favorites spanning every era of hard rock and metal.”

Check out Sabbath’s upcoming tour schedule below.

Could they have gotten a more lame opening act? At least people won’t have to rush to the show to catch the opener. Maybe the most classic metal band of all time, with a douchebag opening. (and if you like Andrew WK, you gotta ask yourself, why????)
