The Top Ten

1 One Shot at Glory One Shot at Glory

I LOVE this song! It was a nice way to end the Painkiller album and will always be my favorite! It's a sham when I bring up this song no one really knows what I talk about...

Rob's Voice in this song is just hilarious.
Great Riffs, Great Drumming and Great Singing!

2 Between the Hammer & the Anvil Between the Hammer & the Anvil

The sinner... will testify

3 Tyrant Tyrant

I think every 70s Priest song should be on this list. It's criminally underrated.

The scream at the end gives me chills every time!

And with 37% of the votes.

4 Let Us Prey / Call for the Priest
5 Stained Class

My favorite track on stained class

6 Prisoner of Your Eyes
7 Cathedral Spires

An amazing heavy metal masterpiece that really showcased the talent of Priest's other vocalist, Tim Ripper Owens. Why people disrespect him and the Ripper era of Priest I'll never know, most should really consider giving the man another chance

It's Tim ripper Owens on vocals

Great song! I personally prefer Bullet Train, but this is the other gem hidden in the Ripper era. Also, it's not Halford...

A masterpiece and Tim's vocals here are amazing - christangrant

Barely anyone knows it because it's on Rocka Rolla which was pretty underwhelming overall, but this is just so good for what it is.

Glad to see a great song from a criminally underrated album is represented at #1. You are not a real Priest fan if you don't know Rocka Rolla

9 The Ripper

This song should also be listened from the live album:unleashed in the east.

Not to say they song isn't popular, but I think it should be more than it already is. It has a very eerie vibe to it, especially during the bridge! Popular, but not popular enough.

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

10 Rocka Rolla

This song is very catchy! Very impressive for one of their first songs, it's one of my favorites!

The Contenders

11 Invader
12 Run of the Mill

Most underrated song of all time

Even though Rocka Rolla isn't one of Priest's stronger albums, this song really stands out.

Great most don't know it forgive them for ignorance

The last 2 minutes are the best I have heard from Halforn in his entire career

13 In Between
14 Death
15 Sinner
16 Call for the Priest

Man... This could easily be their first speed metal song instead of exciter. It has double bass, fast riffing with some palm muting between the open chords.
I think it's their most overlooked song in their catalogue.

17 Fire Burns Below
18 Future of Mankind
19 Nostradamus
20 Rapid Fire

An epic opening to an amazing album, This song is my favorite off the album and I wish it was put on more hits albums

21 Raw Deal

This song is written about Rob Halford's sexuality. He described it as his way of "letting people know".

"I made a spike about nine o'clock on a Saturday,
all eyes hit me as I walked into the bar.
The Steeley leather guys were foolin with the denim dudes.
A couple cards played rough stuff, New York, Fire Island! "

Make sense now? - IronSabbathPriest

31 Exciter
32 Subterfuge
33 Pestilence and Plague
34 Parental Guidance

Great song. And to the guy commenting on cathederal spires the song is sung by Ripper Owens, not Rob Halford

This song is sung by halford, it's off the turbo album, which is sung by rob halford.

35 Deceiver
36 Dissident Aggressor

One of the heaviest metal songs of the 70s. - Metal_Treasure

Underrated even for this list!

41 Screaming for Vengeance
42 Lost Love
43 Prophecy
44 Bloodstone
45 One On One
46 Jugulator

A brilliant song that was a high point in the Tim 'Ripper' Owens era.

47 Eulogy
48 Heart of a Lion
49 Judas Rising

This song is a masterpiece... I can't believe it is not even at the Top 10 of this list.
It meant the huge return of Rob Halford to the band and what a way to come back!
