Judas Priest vs. Ozzy Osbourne – Classic Cage Match
It was a tight battle, but Judas Priest‘s ‘Breaking the Law’ emerged victorious over the returning champ, Motorhead’s ‘Ace of Spades,’ in the latest Classic Cage Match. The hard-driving riffs of the 1980 classic alongside Rob Halford’s very distinctive vocals have made ‘Breaking the Law’ a metal anthem over the years. But how will the song do against another ’80s metal powerhouse?
