Heavy metal legends Judas Priest appeared on the "Simpsons" last night (January 5th), performing a parody version of their classic track "Breaking the Law," Blabbermouth reports. The episode, titled "Steal This Episode," saw Homer Simpson being chased by the FBI after screening illegally downloaded movies to Springfield residents.
Former Judas Priest guitarist KK Downing spoke to the Shropshire Star about the appearance last week, noting that the Simpsons had a history of featuring hard rock and heavy metal music:
"A few previous programs have used Breaking The Law and other Judas Priest songs. Would I have said yes if I'd still been in the band? Probably, because it's good exposure, although it would depend in what context."
