Legendary and thoroughly awesome Heavy Metal band. Could be described as the co-founders of Heavy Metal (along with Black Sabbath). Its sometimes said that Black Sabbath invented Heavy Metal, and Judas Priest perfected it. Judas Priest (or Priest for short) have had a number of drummers come and go over the years, this possibly inspired Spinal Tap's exploding drummers skit.
Priests awesome, powerful tunes include "Victim of Changes", "Beyond The Realms of Death", "Breaking the Law", "You Got Another Thing Coming"
This "poor mans Iron Maiden" thing is a load of bollocks. Priest rock!!!
1. Priest really rocked at Ozzfest!
2. I'd take Priest over any douchebag nu metal band anyday!
