** Not weird enough? Try listening to demos with original singer Al Atkins. A good singer, but far more of a gravelly blues rock singer than a screamer like Rob Halford. By Atkins’ own admission the band would have probably gone in a more AC/DC type direction had he stuck around.

* ReplacementScrappy: Tim ”Ripper” Owens faced this, replacing one of Heavy Metal’s most iconic vocalists, though most of the scorn is directed at the material itself, given that his vocal range was very close to Rob Halford’s.

** Dave Holland is looked down upon by certain fans for being more simplistic in approach compared to the drummers before and after him, though these days [[RoleEndingMisdemeanor nobody wants to defend the guy]] after what he was convicted of.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Definitely. Their first album "Rocka Rolla" was standard 70's blues rock with only faint nods to heavy metal, not to mention the band itself, wearing floral pattern shirts and ''bell-bottoms'' instead of the metal fashion they became famous for.

* [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff Americans Love Judas Priest]]: Not that they were never popular in the UK and other areas, but they were and still are pretty popular in the United States, being the most commercially popular NewWaveOfBritishHeavyMetal band [[EagleLand there]].

* OlderThanTheyThink: Many people believe Judas Priest is a NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) band like Music/IronMaiden or Music/Motorhead, but they formed in 1969 which makes them one of the first metal bands like Music/BlackSabbath. This is largely because they made it big during the NWOBHM era.

* LoveItOrHateIt: ''Turbo''. Rob Halford himself in a 2008 interview said it's the "love / hate Judas Priest album".
** The albums with Tim "Ripper" Owens on vocals also count, though ''Demolition'' is less this and more a mixed bag, with epic, hard-to-hate songs such as "Machine Man" and "Subterfuge" mixed in with mediocre-at-best songs such as "Feed on Me" and "In Between".

Added DiffLines:

** ''Painkiller'' as well, with many fans and critics agreeing that ''Jugulator'' was too heavy and intense compared to their earlier work. Then again, their latest output, ''Redeemer of Souls'', is raising the bar for anything that comes after that.
