[[PunctuatedForEmphasis HE! IS! THE! T! V! TROPES!]] ''[[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic THIS! IS! THE! T! V! TROPES!]]''
------------------------------------
* While it's generally overlooked in favor of their later albums, ''Rocka Rolla'' did have its fair share of awesome music.
** She was a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9UM4N5sGBs Cheater!]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuXoalKim9c "Run of the Mill"]] remains to this day one of their most powerful softer songs.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxwtk74ApDU The title track]] is a particularly fun little EarWorm.
* If we're talking about SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic, we shouldn't forget ''Sad Wings of Destiny''.
** All hear my warning, never turn your back on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhpGDCInUoc "The Ripper"]].
** And [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EKSU1W0ZUmQ "Victim of Changes"]].
** Rob's scream on "Dreamer Deciever".
%%** TYRANT, CAPTOR OF HUMANITY! TYRANT, CONQUERER OF ALL!
* 1977's ''Sin After Sin'' gave us many great tracks.
** "Dissident Aggressor", a song with one of Halford's greatest screams IN THE INTRO.
** "Sinner" had one of their best {{Epic Riff}}s.
* 1978's ''Stained Class''.
** ''Nobody'' else had done anything as heavy as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KO2DYwvseiY "Exciter"]] in 1978.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y60Mo_Nmydg "Beyond the Realms of Death"]] is just beautiful.
* From 1979's ''Killing Machine'':
** "Delivering the Goods". Not even Van Halen had performed riffs that fast!
%%** "The Green Manalishi With the Two Pronged Crown".
* ''British Steel'', start to finish.
** Especially [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhXUutpELRA "Rapid Fire"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RATEoDH9WiY "Breaking the Law"]].
%%** LIVIN! AFTER MIDNIGHT! ROCKING! TO THE DAWN! LOVING! 'TILL THE MORNING! THEN I'M GONE! I'M GONE!!!
* ''Point of Entry'' is kind of a blah album, but it has awesome stuff in there.
** "Hot Rockin'" really stands out. It's the perfect anthem for a night on the town - assuming, of course, that your date is a leather-and-spandex-clad biker chick.
%%** SO I'M HEADIN' OUT TO THE HIGHWAY! I'VE GOT NOTHING TO LOSE AT ALL!
* ''Screaming for Vengeance'', start to finish.
** "The Hellion", probably, the greatest intro track of all time. Unbelievably epic.
** ''I'M MADE OF METAL~! MY CIRCUITS GLEAM~! I AM PERPETUAL, I KEEP THE COUNTRY CLEAN~! I'M ELECTED, ELECTRIC SPY! I'M ELECTED,'' '''''PRO-TECTED, DE-TECTED, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WL_2p-NvWI ELECTRIC EYEEEEEEEEEEEEE!]]'''''
** '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3K_12NlT_bQ YES I'M RIDIN', RIDIN' ON THE WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNDDDDD!!!]]''' Especially the guitar solo.
%%** "You've Got Another Thing Comin'".
* ''Defenders Of The Faith'' has several gems:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLMuv5dc-rQ&fmt=18 "The Sentinel"]], which has Glenn and K.K.'s best "guitar duel" ever recorded.
--> ''SWORN TO AVENGE'' \\
''CONDEMNED TO HELL'' \\
''TEMPT NOT THE BLADE'' \\
''ALL FEAR THE SEEEEEEEEEEEEEENTINEL!''
** The bafflingly hot [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFCZDNwomRA "Eat Me Alive"]] in which they troll the PMRC [[http://www.nndb.com/lists/405/000093126/ with amazing results]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=206m_H8GzmY "Freewheel Burning"]]. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_s-49rNCdw&ob=av3n The music video]] is the distilled essence of [[MundaneMadeAwesome What Do You Mean, It's Not Awesome?]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6UiJJXCt1E "Rock Hard, Ride Free"]]. Words to live your life by.
** The HeavyMeta anthem "Heavy Duty / Defenders of the Faith".
* ''Turbo'' always seems to get slammed by hardcore metal fans, but it has it's share of awesome:
** "Out in the Cold". Creepy Gothic synthesizers, a slowly epic riff, and an unabashed dark romanticism make this one a winner.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhY9GOhFwN4 IIIIII'M! YOUR! TUUUUURRBOOOOO LOOOOVEEEEEER! TEEELLLLL ME! THERE'S NO! OTHEEEERRR!]]
** The unabashed 'I'm better than you' of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jTJ81da2IU "Private Property".]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSCLyrxb0no "Love Bites"]]: Extended interlocking guitar solos ''and'' a scream that makes Halford sound like he's turning into a werewolf.
* ''Ram It Down'' has:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtnW8w3e-7Q "Blood Red Skies"]], probably the definitive anthem for a ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}''-esque [[RobotWar war against the machines]].
** The title track. It's the album opener, so naturally the first thing you hear is [[CarefulWithThatAxe a piercing]] ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mtu20Ejv3SI AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA-]]''. And of course, the CrazyAwesome lyrics:
--->[[SerialEscalation Thousand of cars and a million guitars]] \\
Screaming with power in the air \\
We've found the place where the decibels race \\
This army of rock will be there!
** The made-for-AudienceParticipationSong chorus of "Heavy Metal". WHAT DO YOU WANT?! HEAVY METAL!
** The epic BadassBoast that is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_fJ5SSV_Vo "Hard as Iron"]].
* ''Painkiller'', start to finish.
** '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WS6-vI70oc0 FAS-TER-THAN-A-LA-SER-BUL-LET! LOU-DER-THAN-AN-AT-OM-BOMB!]]'''
** The AffablyEvil [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gQH1IEMf4Q "A Touch Of Evil"]] IN THE NIGHT, COME TO ME, YOU KNOW I WANT YOUR TOUCH OF EVIL!!! [[EvilIsSexy It's definitely one of the sexiest heavy metal songs of all time.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJ7ZvmPU7xI "All Guns Blazing"]]. A very apt name.
** Even more epic on ''Painkiller'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AhvUpykF7OM "One Shot At Glory"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oN4zTDFvJuQ Leather Rebel! LIGHTNING IN THE DARK! Leather Rebel! With a burning heart!]]
** The largely underrated [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfKPKluQuXA "Hell Patrol"]], best known for coining the terms "vaporapeize" and "paratamize".
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOGMQ-ySqOY "Between the Hammer and the Anvil"]] which should be the theme of the [[UsefulNotes/TheSpanishInquisition Inquisition]]. ''Every'' Inquisition.
** "HERE COMES THE [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yobDKUDcfQI METAL MELTDOWN]] RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!"
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7t2XPPqglb8 "Living Bad Dreams"]] which they waited over 10 years to finally release.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ifwh_R3XUFY "Nightcrawler"]].
* ''Jugulator'':
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBiEhMqM_0o "Bullet Train"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTaDvzVBrSM "Cathedral Spires"]].
* ''Demolition'' has:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHTepXW81oI "Subterfuge"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZgVAUQ8MPso "Feed On Me"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUyQe3FqWAQ "One On One"]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TgTzaPgtrow "Machine Man]].
* ''Angel of Retribution'', the group's big comeback album in 2005, is much better than you'd expect. Standouts:
** "Deal With the Devil" (classic '80s-style metal, but doesn't sound dated at all).
** "Revolution" (a lot like Queen's "We Will Rock You", but even more {{Badass}}).
** "Worth Fighting For" (a lusciously melancholy cowboy/Western-style number, with a Buck Owens-like riff and Rob singing in a decent American accent; he even sounds a bit like Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots!).
** "Hellrider" (Yes, it's a bit {{Narm}}-y, with Rob sounding kind of like [[Film/TheWizardOfOz the Wicked Witch of the West]] at some points, but it's damn near irresistible.)
** '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4jazmdoxlpY JUDAS IS RISIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNGG!]]'''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n19nUjLDg9I NOOOOOOOOSTRADAMUS!!!]] VIIIIIIIINDICATION!!! NOOOOOOOOOSTRADAMUS!!! IIIIIIISSSSSSSS AAAAAAAAAAVEENGEEEEEEED!!!
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ItrudYGZkV8 I AM NOSTRADAMUS!!!]] Do you believe? I AM NOSTRADAMUS!!!! That I can see?
