* IronWoobie: Rob Halford in the 80s. Dear lord, not only did he struggle to keep his sexuality in the closet, but he suffered from depression, substance abuse, and a violent relationship with his partner at the time. The reason Halford finally got clean in 1985 was because of said relationship. The relationship ended in a nightmarishly tragic way when his partner put a gun to his head and killed himself '''''RIGHT IN FRONT OF HALFORD'''''. Halford tried to kill himself in the aftermath by overdosing on painkillers, but he decided to call for help at the last second and after a one month stay in rehab, Halford went out on his first fully sober world tour to support the ''Turbo'' album. He has now been sober [[EarnYourHappyEnding for over 30 years and counting]].
* LoveItOrHateIt: ''Turbo''. Rob Halford himself in a 2008 interview said it's the "love/hate Judas Priest album".

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Many aspects of their music and stage performance seem incredibly [[ClicheStorm clichéd]] - until you realise they are the ones who started those clichés in the first place. Because of this, while you'd be hard-pressed to find a metalhead who doesn't enjoy at least some of their music, many are left wondering what was so special about them.

* VindicatedByHistory: While ''Turbo'' was a smash hit commercially went it came out back in 1986, most fans hated it for its more glam metal sound. Nowadays, it often regarded by many as one of their best.

* HarsherInHindsight: "Grinder" was already being read differently by listeners in light of Rob Halford's sexuality... Then in 2009 there was a popular social app targeted towards gay and bisexual men that happened to be called Grindr: If you mentally drop the "e" from the title drop, the song starts sounding like an endorsement of using the app to find sexual partners (i.e. "Grindr / looking for meat").

* MisBlamed: Tim "Ripper" Owens seems to get ''all'' the flack for ''Jugulator'' and ''Demolition'' simply due to the fact that he's not Rob Halford. This is pretty unfair considering it was Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing who wrote the albums, but, the fans needed someone to blame and Tim drew the short straw.

* LoveItOrHateIt:
** ''Turbo''. Rob Halford himself in a 2008 interview said it's the "love/hate Judas Priest album".
** 1981's ''Point of Entry'' is also this for fans. Fans either love it for its return to the band's 70's BluesRock influenced sound and the inclusion of fan favorites like "Heading Out to the Highway", "Desert Plains", and "Hot Rockin"; or they hate it for the radio-friendly rock sound after the heavier ''British Steel'' and inclusion of some of the worst songs the band has ever done, including the infamous "swing metal" styling of "You Say Yes".

* {{Narm}}:
** The 1998 version of "Rapid Fire" reaches new levels of absurdity with Ripper's over-the-top vocals.
--->''BREATHING FIRE!''
* ParanoiaFuel: "Electric Eye".
