Greatest Judas Priest Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Heading Out to the Highway

Awesome power riffs by Glen Tipton and Rob Halford 's scorching vocals make this one of the all-time Priest classics!

One of their best songs with an amazing chorus it deserves it's place on the list.

Well finally its in the top 20

Hot rocking' is better

22 The Green Manalishi

Very underrated, all Judas Priest fans recognize this one!

Super Underrated, but it's a cover so maybe that's why it's so low - SoldierOfFortune

This is the ultimate priest song

Can't believe this isn't in the top ten! Love the live version on UITE.

23 Sinner

Just a classic Priest Beast tune can't help but think diamonds and rust though when speaking about the sinner. The Sinner is another beauty when played live just checkout unleashed in the east to hear what I'm talking about. - writeitdown1

Way way too far down on this list

24 Metal Meltdown

this song is so brutal, especially when Rob sings'Here comes the MEtal Meltdown" awesommeuh

believe, you gonna like the intro; any great metaller would like it!
this song was the first I heard from them, and all the song is great! - rock2metal

This song annihilates! Totally badass, gets me pumped up every time I hear it!

This song is amazing. Love the speed and everything. - Metal_Treasure

What Judas Priest was named for. Just awesome.

This is Rob Halford's Auto Biography - SoldierOfFortune

Underrated. Second best Judas Priest song, only behind Freewheel Burning.

This way too low.

27 Saints In Hell

Absolute top 10! Top 5 even for me!

Should be top ten! Love everything Judas, but this list has me baffled. If your knowledge of J.P. is strictly radio play (and I believe that's most of the people voting here) you are ruining this top ten for us true PRIEST fans!

28 The Ripper

This needs to be higher. People need to start actually listening to JP songs and not just recycling "Breaking the Law" and "You've Got Another Thing Coming"... Songs that get so much air-time because of how poppy they are. This song makes you uncomfortable, and it's fantastic

They aren't poppy, they are just overplayed. They have good riffs but listening to them over and over again makes it a bit annoying, like Iron Man - SoldierOfFortune

Dude you have to be kidding. This song is amazing and it's no even on the list?

Whats better than jack the ripper

It's way better then "Breaking the Law" and "Painkiller" - hype

Such an underrated song. Halford's amazing performance, never more playful, such great contrasting. And KK's and Tipton's riffs are again simple yet incredibly catchy. Just give it a listen, people. Won't regret it

The origin of true heavy metal. Priest at its finest.

Heavier than anything to come for years. Truly awesome, especially with the impact of 17-year-old session drummer Simon Phillips.

Its really good, I just think the slayer version is better

30 Angel

Just awesome... I agree whit the other comments, it should definitely be on the top 10 of the list.. You actually can feel the song inside you..

Awesome song! It draws you in and makes you believe there is your own angel saviour up there in the heavens!
One of my all time favourite son

Why isn't this on top of the list! This is JP's best ever! You get a shiver down your spine when you hear this!

Super Album

31 Riding on the Wind

Definitely underrated it should be top 40 on the list I like the intro

Absolutely top ten. No need to argue


32 Death Row
33 Desert Plains

Pure Priest, at close to the top of their game. Worth a re-listen if you haven't heard in awhile.

34 Hell Patrol

Deserves to be in the top 5. It gives you the feeling of power, real true song, purest form of art.

This song is kind of short, so I can see it being lower, but no worse than 15 or 16. It's one of my favorites, talk about head-banging, and the solo matching Halford's voice makes the guitar cry

It gives you energy

It has everything you want from a good song (vocals, guitars, drums, lyric...) - ShahryRKnoT

35 Leather Rebel

Damn, why so far down? This is one of my favorite songs by them! It breaks my heart to see if so far down! This and Hellrider are two of my favorites because they are so fast paced!

What? This song should to be in the first place!

This deserves a better place at this list. Makes me cry :'(

The best song in Paikiller!

36 Tyrant

The fact that this isn't in the top 10 is beyond me. The fact it wasn't on this list at all is just plain ridiculous. Easily one of their best songs and ahead of their time.

Lyrics, vocals and 5 minimum...especially off Unleashed In The East!

This song is awesome! Should be top ten. Esp the live version

37 Nostradamus

This should at least be in the top 15.

The operatic vocals and the great instrumental parts make this song one of the best from Judas Priest.

An extremely underrated song from an extremely underrated album

Whenever I play a song from this album, everyone loves it! (no matter what they listen to)! - ShahryRKnoT

Best their song!

38 (Take These) Chains

A good catchy song.

39 Run of the Mill

Most underrated song of all time. Period.

One of the greatest songs of the Priest

Amen to all previous posts on this song! A Top 3!

#1 to me

40 Cathedral Spires

This song is very good - it's underrated just because Tim Ripper sang it. And Tim is overHated. He's a very good singer. - Metal_Treasure

Absolute epic masterpiece. With this song, Tim Owens has made his contribution to the band worthwhile.

It's a masterpiece! It should be at least in the top 30.

This should be in the top 10 at least - christangrant
