Motorhead vs. Judas Priest – Classic Cage Match

Motorhead vs Judas Priest
Mercury / Columbia
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.

So you tell us — will Motorhead double down on ‘Ace of Spades’ or will Judas Priest break through with ‘Breaking the Law’? Crank both songs at full volume in the players below and then make your vote count.

(This Cage Match will run until Friday, April 4, at 2PM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)
