Thanksgiving travel music: Judas Priest 'Heading Out to the Highway'



For many, Thanksgiving Day means loading up the family truckster and "Heading Out To The Highway."  In honor of such pilgrimages, we feature Judas Priest and Heading Out To The Highway which reached the Top 10 on the Mainstream Rock Charts in 1981.

We urge you to keep it safe and not drag race like the boys from Judas Priest. Video highlights include lead singer Rob Halford officiating the car race with dance moves that look awfully similar to Jon Heder's moves in Napoleon Dynamite.

The Kings of British Steel celebrated the band's 40-year anniversary with the 2013 release of the concert DVD entitled Epitaph. Filmed at London's Hammersmith Odeon, the concert features at least one song from each of their fourteen albums Judas Priest has released during the Halford Era.
