Puddle of Mudd busted out a live version of Black Sabbath‘s classic “War Pigs” when the Wes Scantlin-led rockers headlined Oklahoma City’s second annual Honeymoon Rock Fest, a music festival where couples get married onstage between bands’ performances.

The event is curated “to celebrate rock and love,” according to its website. “The founder, Leia, is marrying Phillip on March 17 before the music festival,” it explains. “The couple, both being musicians, wanted to celebrate this moment through music.”
Black Sabbath’s original “War Pigs” appears on the pioneering heavy metal band’s second album, 1970’s Paranoid. The song was issued that August as the first single from the effort. It has since become one of metal’s most recognizable songs.
Last year, Scantlin walked offstage in Wisconsin after arguing over the stage lights being in his eyes. An interview from the same time had him warding off women who he said “keep you up too late” on tour.
Scantlin has a history of walking offstage during performances, such as when he exited a show mid-song in Dallas in 2017 or when he scolded a sound person and left the stage in Pennsylvania the year before. He later entered rehab and said he achieved around a year of sobriety in 2018. He’s since returned with Puddle of Mudd’s first original album in a decade, 2019’s Welcome to Galvania.
