Awesome Music: Judas Priest

HE! IS! THE! T! V! TROPES! 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.
  • If we're talking about Awesome Music, we shouldn't forget Sad Wings of Destiny.
  • 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 Riffs.
  • 1978's Stained Class.
  • From 1979's Killing Machine:
    • "Delivering the Goods". Not even Van Halen had performed riffs that fast!
  • 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.
  • 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, ELECTRIC EYEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
    • YES I'M RIDIN', RIDIN' ON THE WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNDDDDD!!! Especially the guitar solo.
    • BLOODSTONE! The opening riff is one the grooviest Ear Worms you will ever hear in a metal song.
    • "Prisoner of Your Eyes" was originally going to be on Turbo, but it was cut. Luckily, it found its way on the 2001 remaster of Screaming For Vengeance and what we got was one of the most epic power ballads ever written by a metal band. Especially when the chorus kicks in.
