wearing that hat to cover up that spot huh james?
January 30, 2013 at 6:10 am
Wow, smarty-pants, calm down. You expect him to get a wig or something? It would be funny to have James don a wig for the Nerd episodes haha!

I think these videos need some rad intro with a musical score and some graphics That would help catching people’s attention and interest
January 30, 2013 at 6:13 am
Guys, do any of you play any instruments yourself, such as drums, guitars or piano? I thought I heard something about James jamming on a guitar sometimes, but I could be wrong. I know that you’ve said you’ve been in a band, but what did you do there James?
January 30, 2013 at 8:53 am
Please do this again sometime.

I’m just thinking, are those tunes on a harddrive or out on the net? Because if they were on the harddrive, maybe you could load them into an audio editor and just play a selection. That way you’d definately know where the end is.
Otherwise, nicely done on Name That Tune!
January 30, 2013 at 10:58 am
Please do more!
January 30, 2013 at 12:13 pm
Rocking video! You did name that tune for 3 my favorite bands.
January 30, 2013 at 3:12 pm
I’m terrible at this one
January 30, 2013 at 3:39 pm
Name that tune with IRON MAIDEN That would rock.
January 30, 2013 at 4:09 pm
Can you make Guns N’ Roses (Name That Tune)?
January 30, 2013 at 6:07 pm
You should watch JoJo’s Bizzare Adventure. It’s an anime that has characters named after classic rock bands like AC/DC.
January 30, 2013 at 8:53 pm
Judas Priest? Metallica? ACDC? … do they watch music video’s like “huh huh huh, heh heh heh”? j/k.

I am thinking Mike must have taken a course on “Looking Into The Camera” taught by Jim Halpert. (I noticed @ about 4:00 in this video)
January 31, 2013 at 1:57 am
i hope you do continue this, it is fun just try to work out the songs, i pause the the video after you play a song so i can try and get the song playing in my head and guess it then i just hit play and see if James get it. i had a lot of fun and a laugh and is that not the goal ,anyway maybe some ozzy solo stuff or iron maiden next . Cheers James and Mike

This will make me sound like a loser, but watching this makes me feel like I have friends hanging out with me. It may be unscripted and by no means awe-inspiring, but it’s great for loneliness. Thanks, guys
January 31, 2013 at 5:55 am
Man i thought i would know many of these songs but i was wrong, this was hard! Next one you should really do Iron Maiden, that would be awesome!
January 31, 2013 at 5:57 am
Man i thought i would know most of these songs, but it was really hard! Please continue with this serie, its awesome! But next you should really do Iron Maiden!
January 31, 2013 at 7:22 pm
James needs to go back and study his Priest
January 31, 2013 at 8:42 pm

January 31, 2013 at 10:51 pm

February 1, 2013 at 6:07 am
You need to do Motorhead next guys!
February 1, 2013 at 10:08 pm
Do you plan on doing an Iron Maiden name that tune?
February 2, 2013 at 5:39 am
White Heat, Red Hot is one of the best Priest tunes ever…
February 5, 2013 at 8:34 am
Name that tune – Ramones ???

I love Priest and I couldn’t get 3 quarters of those. A lot of their tracks start off with the same 2 or 3 chords, just played with tiny variations. And most of the solo’s just sound like bombs going off lol

Out of the 36 songs sampled (I counted both instances of “Take On The World” and “Ram It Down”), I (with rapid pressing of the pause button before talking began) successfully guessed 30. I’m substantially less familiar with the Ripper albums. But I have some very anal nerdish notes which I feel are of importance to people who care enough about Judas Priest to have made (or even been ABLE to make) this video… I will post them each separately.

“White Heat, Red Hot”: It are mistaken to hint that it was from “THE album released in 1978.” 1978 featured the release of both “Stained Class” AND “Killing Machine.” The latter, while indeed retitled “Hell Bent For Leather” by Columbia Records in the U.S., was delayed and released in March of 1979. However, as the band is from the U.K., and THEY titled the album “Killing Machine” (and released it in October of 1978), that would be the correct information.
In fact the ONLY way a distinction would be applicable would be if the song in the quiz was the studio version of “The Green Manalishi (With The Two-Pronged Crown),” which was not on the original international release of “Killing Machine,” but WAS included in the U.S. on “Hell Bent For Leather.” But as this is not the case, any distinction is moot.

“The Hellion”: NOT “Electric Eye” AT ALL, JUST “The Hellion.” It is, however, a crime to separate them. But yeah, none of “Electric Eye,” technically, was in that sample.
February 7, 2013 at 6:25 am
“Here Come The Tears”: Is that really the beginning of “Here Come The Tears?” Well, yes and no. On the original release of the CD at least, not sure about vinyl, this is indeed where track #7 begins. But that was never intended by the band to be the beginning of that song.
The song really begins with the cymbal flourish and melancholy chord leading into the lyrics “Once I dreamed that love would come and sweep me up away…”
This was erroneously tacked onto the end of “Raw Deal” when first released, although it has nothing at all to do with the song “Raw Deal.” That first issue also lists track 5 as “Let Us Prey” and track 6 as “Call For The Priest/Raw Deal.”
“Let Us Prey is simply the “Call for the Priest, I’m dying….” intro. The song proper is titled “Call For The Priest.”
In conclusion: The correct track listing intended by the band is: 5) Let Us Prey/Call For the Priest, 6) Raw Deal, 7) Here Come The Tears. On all issues of “Sin After Sin” from the 2001 remasters onwards, the track listing is correct.
February 7, 2013 at 6:27 am
“Deceiver”: While Dreamer Deceiver and Deceiver were indeed split into two tracks on the album, it’s just really bad form to play one without the other. While never to my knowledge played live post-1976, this was always paired with “Dreamer Deceiver” as can been seen on their performance from The BBC’s “Old Grey Whistle Test” in 1975 (available on the “Electric Eye” DVD).
The only acceptable separation, in my opinion, is “Dreamer Deceiver” by itself in its original format, as written by Al Atkins before he left the band, a performance of which is included on Atkins’ 2007 release “Demon Deceiver.”
“Deceiver” was added with writing by Halford and Tipton a few years later.

Great! Waiting for the MAIDEN one!!
February 10, 2013 at 2:17 am
Should do Iron Maiden or Led Zeppelin next!
February 10, 2013 at 5:35 am
First I think this is a pretty cool skit idea, of course I’m biast cause I’m a huge metal head and a big fan of the bands theyve done so far. This Judas Priest one was awesome I love priest own all their albums and frankly by far my favorite power metal band.
I know james tends to like old school rock hard rock and metal more but if your into it I would like to see some more modern bands and see some like death metal black metal viking metal folk metal ect ect ect.
February 11, 2013 at 4:37 pm
how about doing trivia on 80s music? that would be neat!!
March 24, 2013 at 6:30 pm
So I’m thinking that Iron Maiden is pretty much inevitable, right?
