Baby Metal and Rob Halford Live, “Painkiller, Breaking the Law”

Lob Harufoludu of Judas Pliest makes an onstage appearance with Baby Metal performing two Judas Pliest classics, Painkirrer and Bleaking the Raw. I love Bleaking the Raw. That was always one of my favorite songs. In 1979, I did an interview with this band in Century City at their record company offices. They were pretty fun to interview, albeit somewhat caustic. I also saw them live and Cal State University Long Beach in 1979. It was a very small venue in the auditorium but they filled it up. They were great!

This video is excellent.

Lob is 64 years old and he still can’t be beat. I can’t believe what a great voice he still has. There are not too many singers in metal who can match his voice. And I hate to say it, but this 64 year old guy sings better than those Baby Metal chicks. For Bleaking the Raw, two of the Baby Metal chicks come out and play guitar! I love it! Sexy Jap chicks play heavy metal guitar! Incredible. The world is turning into a sci-fi novel.

Here they are again playing the same song, Breaking the Law, before a huge crowd at some unknown festival. There must be 100,000 people in that audience! I am not sure when this was but it was probably the early 1980’s because that is what Rob Halford looked like back then. The lead guitarist and the blond bass player are the same guys that I interviewed

Here is Motorhead covering the same song. I almost like this cover better than the original! At least I can hear the lyrics on this one.

    I started listening to Judas Priest on their album Stained Class . I think quit listening to them so much around Screaming for Vengeance and probably haven’t heard most of the stuff after that. I started listening to more punk, blues, and the Cramps around then. I think Stained Class (1978)
    Killing Machine (1978)
    British Steel (1980)
    Point of Entry (1981)
    Screaming for Vengeance (1982) were the best to me.

    Have you ever heard Rob Halford’s band 2wo album Voyeurs (1998). That one is good. It’s much more industrial. I think it was spelled two though. Big mistake because the word is too common. I still have the CD. And speak of the devil.

    and for fun here’s a really great video of Monster Magnet. A great band.

    Gods and Punks Lyrics

    “When your mind goes blank in the pouring rain
    And you can’t get back on your feet again
    Well your girlfriend tells you the world is dead
    And it just ain’t workin’ inside your head.

    Now get along little doggie get on
    No one else is gonna sing your song
    You can fuck recovery cause you’re already gone.

    I’m a stoned jet fighter with a heart of gold
    Well I’m really mad and I’m really old
    And I rule this planet from high above
    And it’s time I sacrificed all my love

    And if you don;t like what you see
    Go ahead and take it out on me.
    I’m the big pig apocalypse and I ain’t hard to please

    I’m a stoned jet fighter with a heart of gold
    And I rule this planet from high above
    And I take what I take because I want what I want
    And tonight I’m gonna rock with the gods and punks

    Well I’m a stoned jet fighter with a heart of gold
    And I rule this planet from high above
    And I take what I take because I want what I want
    And tonight I’m gonna rock with the gods and punks

    Rock on

    When your mind goes blank in the pouring rain

    And you can’t get back on your feet again
    And your girlfriend tells you the world is dead
    And it just ain’t workin’ inside your head.

    Now get along little doggie get on
    No one else is gonna sing your song
    You can fuck recovery cause you’re already gone.

    I’m a stoned jet fighter with a heart of gold
    And I rule this planet from high above
    And I take what I take because I want what I want
    And tonight I’m gonna rock with the gods and punks

    I’m a stoned jet fighter with a heart of gold
    And I rule this planet from high above
    And I take what I take because I want what I want
    And tonight I’m gonna rock with the gods and punks

    Rock on

    Gods and punks
    Gods and punks
    Gods and punks
    Gods and punks
    Gods and punks
    Gods and punks
    Gods and punks”

    Of course Dave’s a Jew who put out an album called “It’s A Satanic Drug Thing..You Wouldn’t Understand”. Now he says he never really did drugs much…ok…whatever. I still love their music though.

    Now I’m stuck listening to Monster Magnet tunes for a while. Can’t help it. Most everything they’ve done is good. I mean who can’t but like a band that releases a album called “Spine of God”.

    I started listening to Priest when “Painkiller” came out. Best, in my opinion, was always “Sad Wings of Destiny.”
