One of the most iconic rock moments happened on this day in 1982.

Ozzy Osbourne bit off a little more than he could chew during a concert in Des Moines, IA. A fan threw on stage what appeared to Ozzy to be a plastic or rubber bat. So, the former Black Sabbath singer picked it up and bit the head off. Unfortunately, Ozzy had to be hospitalized and suffer through a painful series of rabies injections and cancel several concert dates while he recovered.

Ozzy always wanted to one-up everyone, but this story helped the Ozzy legend grow. He wouldn't be Ozzy if this had not happened.
