    I have all these songs on vinyl and/or CD. Ain't I cool?
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    I think they picked the wrong Judas Priest songs.

    My picks for top JP songs would be
    Sinner
    Stained Class
    Devil's Child
    You Got Another Thing Coming
    Love Bites
    Beyond the Realms of Death

    And I kind of agree that Metallica should be #1, though it really is a tossup between Metallica and Black Sabbath.
    I think Ride The Lightning is the best heavy metal album of all time.

    Here are the rankings for some of your JP favourites:

    Sinner # 149
    You Got Another Thing Comin' # 29
    Love Bites # 405
    Beyond the Realms of Death # 43

    And I kind of agree that Metallica should be #1, though it really is a tossup between Metallica and Black Sabbath.

    I am biased in favour of Black Sabbath, but maybe only because Ronnie James Dio's songs are included... :-)

    It is interesting that the author's top 10 looks very different:

    1. Aerosmith - Draw the Line
    2. Deep Purple - Highway Star
    3. Led Zeppelin - In My Time of Dying
    4. Black Sabbath - The Writ
    5. Queen - Liar
    6. Dio - We Rock
    7. Judas Priest - Tyrant
    8. Led Zeppelin - The Rover
    9. Black Sabbath - Megalomania
    10. Aerosmith - Sick as a Dog

    He admitted to having more of a taste for the older, less "heavy" songs.
