Motorhead vs. Judas Priest – Classic Cage Match
Motorhead are moving on, claiming victory over AC/DC in the last Classic Cage Match. The band’s 1980 anthem ‘Ace of Spades’ emerged victorious, besting ‘Back in Black’ in a match-up of iconic rock songs. But do Lemmy and crew have what it takes to keep their Classic Cage Match streak alive?
Their opponent this week will be Judas Priest, who also had a pretty outstanding 1980 thanks to the ‘British Steel’ album. One of the songs that did it for them was the driving rocker ‘Breaking the Law,’ which not only rocks but is also catchy enough to stick in your head.
