Breaking The Law (Live) – Judas Priest

The trademark leather is on show here, along with some impressive hair and Rob Halford is sporting a slicked-back mullet. Of course, the fans love it.

Breaking The Law is from the 1980 album British Steel which saw the beginning of Judas Priest’s mainstream success. It’s one of their best known hits. Writer Glenn Tipton said it was written in only one hour. This video was shot in 1986 during their Fuel For Your Life tour.

VH1 named it the 12th greatest hard rock song of all time in 2009.

The original 1980 video featuring the band robbing/rocking a bank is here.
