"Gets Me Through" is the first track from the 2001 album Down to Earth by heavy metal rocker Ozzy Osbourne in which he thanks his fans and attempts to set the record straight that his stage persona is precisely that and nothing more, stating, "I'm not the Anti-Christ or the Iron Man".

In the first draft of the music video, pictures of flames, and destruction were featured but due to the events of 9/11, MTV said that they would not air it, so in return Ozzy sent back a cut version instead.

The single peaked at number eighteen on the UK Singles Chart and number two on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.[1] In Metal Edge magazine's 2001 Readers' Choice Awards, it won "Music Video of the Year" and tied with Slipknot's "Left Behind" for "Song of the Year."[2]
