‘The Simpsons’ Makes Amends for Calling Judas Priest ‘Death Metal’
Judas Priest recently became the latest act to make a cameo on the long-running animated FOX series, ‘The Simpsons,’ but not everyone was chuckling when the episode made reference to the legendary band as “death metal.”
Finding some good-natured fun in the goof, the creators of the show made amends in the following episode, having Bart scrawl the words “Judas Priest is not death metal” repeatedly in chalk in the opening credits.

‘The Simpsons’ appearance is just the first big thing in what promises to be a huge 2014 for the band. The group is reportedly prepping a new album for later this year and several members of the band will take part in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp in Las Vegas in late February / early March. Keep an eye out for more from Judas Priest this year.
