Faith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California. On the band’s third studio album The Real Thing they recorded a cover of Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs.” The track was also included on the first Nativity in Black: Black Sabbath tribute album. In 1997, drummer Mike Bordin began performing with Ozzy Osbourne’s band. After Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward was unfortunately plagued with health issues during tour, Bordin had a brief stretch playing with the other original members of Black Sabbath. Notably he played the closing segments of Ozzy Osbourne’s 1997 headlining concerts during the Ozzfest tour. Bordin later re-recorded the drum tracks on Osbourne’s solo albums, Blizzard of Ozz, and Diary of a Madman, for the controversial remasters released in 2002. The re-recordings were the result of a lawsuit brought by original drummer Lee Kerslake and original bassist Bob Daisley (whose part was re-recorded by Robert Trujillo) for unpaid royalties. The remakes have received very poor reviews from fans on online retail stores such as Amazon.com.
