Watch: Judas Priest Parody Themselves On ‘The Simpsons’

Halford-on-The-Simpsons-620x346

Rob Halford and the rest of Judas Priest made a brief appearance on the long-running FOX animated series The Simpsons last night (January 5). The episode, titled Steal This Episode, dealt with Homer learning the consequences of illegal downloading after opening a backyard movie theater in Springfield cleverly named ‘Cinema Pirate-diso.’ When the proverbial shit hit the fan the entire Simpsons clan found themselves swarmed by the FBI, and not long after the band responsible for “Breaking The Law” rolled through on the back of a truck (much like Metallica did a few seasons back). You can view the band’s appearance at the end of this post.

There have been a number of cartoons and television shows that have attempted to make light of online piracy, but The Simpsons once again found ways to make the idea entirely their own in last night’s episode. If you like the clip you see below we highly suggest stopping by Hulu or iTunes later today and enjoying the full program. Then again, you could probably just download it. Your choice.
