Greatest Judas Priest Songs

The Contenders: Page 2

21 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 guitars...top 5 minimum...especially off Unleashed In The East!

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

22 Hellrider

Craziest solo; truly utilizes the full potential of the unstoppable duo; Glenn Tipton and KK Downing. They are THE best guitarists out there. Who says they're retired? Their titles certainly aren't.

Second to only Painkiller. The best opening to any song I have ever heard. The riff paralyses me. Incredible heavy metal masterpiece from the fathers of twin guitar metal. It doesn't get any better than this so mystified why it is not in the Top 10?

Judas Priest came back to the metal scene swinging with this song. All the others needed to know that Judas Priest always will be the kings of metal. Amazing song, the guitar riff I too is immaculate, Halford's vocals are terrifying and the drums are incredible.

This is definitely a top ten material

23 Judas Rising

What's wrong with this list, putting Judas Rising here?! This song is the epitome of heavy metal. Brash, insanely fast, divine riffs... Everything about this song is pure genius. This is by far one of their best songs. It's just so damn heavy! Please, allow your ears the privilege of listening to this, and THEN vote. Cause this is DEFINITELY better than almost the entire top 10.

Oh my, Judas Rising rotting here?! The ultimate Judas Priest song with the most epic riffs, heaviest beats, most energetic vocals and the BEST chorus of all time is placed 16th?! This is the biggest insult to Judas Priest and their insane album 'Angel Of Retribution' that's one of the most legendary metal albums ever.
And Angel is 13th?! Another shocker! The Metal Gods are not pleased, enough said.

Come on, listen to this masterpiece of music. Just Epic! Only Painkiller is maybe better.

It's a pity this song is 15th. It is easily one of Priest's most anthemic songs, with an iconic intro, relentless verses, and a perfect build-up to what is by far, Priest's most definitive chorus. The greatness of Judas Priest's sonic abilities culminated into one out-of-this-world track. Easily my favourite. Give it a listen. It will be yours too.

25 The Green Manalishi

Very underrated, all Judas Priest fans recognize this one!

This is the ultimate priest song

It should be in top10! Just listen!

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

26 Metal Gods

What Judas Priest was named for. Just awesome.

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

I'm shocked! This Masterpiece at #34!?! Easily top 10, if not top 5!

27 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

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!

30 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

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

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

BEST PRIEST SOLO EVER. that's all

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

This epic song belongs in top 10

35 Prisoner of Your Eyes

So underrated but so beautiful and with an amazing solo!

Should be in top 20.

One of the absolute best 80's ballads ever!

36 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

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!

38 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

39 (Take These) Chains

A good catchy song.

40 Some Heads are Gonna Roll

Oh come on, this song should be up there! Not one of the most popular ones, but really, its one of the best in my opinion.
