I didn't dislike Judas Priest, I just didn't care. A few years back that began to change, my wife had some Priest Cds and they sounded good to me. A song here or there would catch my ear. Then VH1 made them the Rock Honors or something and featured their music for an hour or two. Godsmack was one of the bands playing tribute to Priest and they came storming out with-
Hell Bent For Leather from the album Hell Bent For Leather (1978)
Godsmack's performance sold me on this song, the pithy verse delivery that led to the near operatic chorus killed.
Eventually I got The Essential Judas Priest which included this track, giving me free reign to play that bad boy to death :)
The song is also noted for being Rob Halford's entrance song where he rides his motorcycle onto the stage.
Such an awesome song, that's why it makes my favorite tune list of all time!
