      What I would like to point out is brilliance behind the text we hear from the lady in the video. It is not easy to describe everything so reach in words. Riffs are awesome, but your presentation and writing is also worth honourable mention ;)

                                                          OK, I 100% agree with every song as mentioned, and every artist as well. Every one of the songs mentioned i learned to play on the guitar as part of a struggling musician in my youth. Every one of these bands mentioned i have seen live. Only dispute i have is with the order, i think Motorhead should be closer to the head of the line, and Metallica a bit farther to the back.

                                                              Holy Wars should be number #1

They're both pretty iconic Priest songs, "You've got another thing comin'" is just the one that pops into my head 1st whenever I think of JP. Electric eye does seem like they put a little more into thought into it, though.

                                                                            • Mark Cheetah

Couldn't stand it when I first heard it nearly 40 years ago and I still can't stand it now. Thankfully Black Sabbath has done much better.
