Judas Priest on The Simpsons

As far as I can tell, there have been about as many good Judas Priest songs as there have been Simpsons episodes in the past ten years, which doesn't bode well for either team. I'm sure some metalheads are annoyed by last night's episode, and maybe they should be, now that Halford and the gang are safe and mainstream enough to appear on a popular sitcom. Worse, the jokes are predictable and the band is called "death metal," a mistake the show that was once hip enough to run the Homerpalooza episode never would have made in the '90s. Yet both the Priest and The Simpsons are legends, and it is an honor to host the former and appear on the later. Here you go.
