No. 27. “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’,” Judas Priest

This fist-pumper appeared on Screaming for Vengeance in 1982 – a triumph of big guitars, leather jackets and shaggy hair-dos. Motivational metal? This track certainly is, proclaiming, “If you think I’ll sit around as the world goes by / You’re thinkin’ like a fool ’cause it’s a case of do or die.” Noteworthy: Pat Boone covered the song on his album of metal covers in 1997.
