Ozzy Osbourne is celebrating the end of the decade the way he started it, by topping Billboard's Mainstream Rock Songs airplay chart with his latest song, "Under the Graveyard." On Thursday (Dec. 19), the rocker unveiled the cinematic music video for the tune, premiering exclusively on Billboard.   

“I’ve always enjoyed working with [director] Jonas (Akerlund),” Osbourne told us of the video in a statement. "Jonas' vision for 'Under the Graveyard' was to create something more than just your standard music video.”   

The duo did just that. The clip stars Jack Kilmer and Jessica Barden as a young Ozzy and Sharon in 1979, as the latter details how she wanted to help the young musician out of his struggles with addiction. The guitar melody plays as a vignette flashes of a particularly rough bender for Ozzy, filled with drugs, alcohol, sex, puking and tearing up hotel rooms. 

"I wasn’t going to let him give up on himself," Barden tells the camera as the young Sharon marches into the hotel room and stays up all night with Ozzy, calming him through withdrawals and temptation to enter back into his dangerous lifestyle. 

"I knew that my life would never be the same again," she sweetly says after the song ends. "I knew that it was going to be hard but I knew that together it would be stronger. I would never give up him."

In a touching happy ending, "Under the Pressure" concludes with a real-life snapshot of Ozzy and Sharon on their wedding day.
