Friday Morning Metal – Judas Priest – Breakin the Law

I’m really digging deep for this one. And why not, this is the 100th post. Judas Priest’s Breakin the Law is a masterpiece of the new wave of British heavy metal and a fantastic song if you’re learning guitar. That solo is pretty tricky, however.

The song is such an anthem that the last time I saw Judas Priest perform the song, Halford didn’t even sing. He just held the mic over the crowd and had all of us do it for him. It was pretty amazing, those screaming metal heads sounded kind of in tune.

As for the video, I didn’t know you could rob a bank with metal back in the early 80’s, but there you go.
