Please Help!

OK I am going on 30 years old and I have to admit I know nothing of Judas Priest can someone please help me find some "good" songs to try out. I do know "You Got Another Thing Coming" but that is about it! So any recomendations will be appreciated. And please dont make fun of me. You guys have helped me without your knowledge about Iron Maiden whom I grew up very afraid of. Its long story if you want to hear it just ask and I will tell but I am not giving it up willingly!

I'd say make your first purchase either Painkiller or Screaming for Vengence.

Depends on what kinda of stuff appeals to you the most, because their sounds changes very much throughout the years.

Now, if you're looking for just a good solid album to start with, I'd say go with Screaming for Vengeance.

However, if you download music, let me recommend to you a song from each album (well, I own most of their albums). I'll either pick what I think is the best song, or what song I think best represents the album as a whole, so you can get a feel for it.

Album - Song

Rocka Rolla - Don't have, can't make recommendation.
Sad Wings of Destiny - Victim of Changes
Sin After Sin - Sinner
Stained Class - Exciter
Killing Machine/Hell Bent for Leather - Delivering the Goods
British Steel - Breaking the Law
Point of Entry - Heading Out to the Highway
Screaming for Vengeance - Devil's Child
Defenders of the Faith - The Sentinel
Turbo - - Don't have, can't make recommendation.
Ram It Down - Don't have, can't make recommendation.
Painkiller - Hell Patrol
Jugulator - Don't have, can't make recommendation.
Demolition - - Don't have, can't make recommendation.
Angel of Retribution - Judas Rising
Nostradamus - Eh, to be honest, I didn't even listen to the whole thing, I really wasn't impressed. However, the title track is pretty sweet.

I would not call that album weak, but if you're a n00b to Priest, don't start there.


Out of couriosity, by "good songs" do you mean songs that we're radio hits or sound like they could be radio hits?
