Judas Priest ‘Not Metal’ Shock Claim
My Chemical Romance’s Gerard Way doesn’t consider Judas Priest to be heavy metal.
The clearly deranged frontman has apparently been flapping his gums about the new MCR album, which is due to be with us in 2010.
In amongst jabbering on about the band’s new record, Way mentioned that some of it has been inspired by Judas Priest.
He then goes on to tell spinnermusic.co.uk:
“Judas Priest is considered metal, but it’s great rock’n'roll. [New MCR songs have] nothing to do with that era of metal, the hair rock, but then have everything to do with, like, the birth of power-anthem metal.”
What a dullard.
