This rock tee is for American heavy metal band Judas Priest and their eleventh studio album Ram It Down. The album was released by Columbia Records and was followed by their 1988 Mercenaries of Metal Tour. The album was produced by Tom Allom, who also worked to produce and engineer albums for Black Sabbath and Def Leppard. The band would not work with Allom again until 30 years later when they released their fifth live album, A Touch of Evil: Live.
The album included a cover of Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" which was originally intended for use in the 1988 comedy movie of the same title. This song along with "Heavy Metal", "Come and Get It", "I'm a Rocker", and the album's title track became a part of the set list for the Mercenaries of Metal Tour.
Judas Priest is known for their leather and studs aesthetic which had a strong influence over heavy metal fashion. When Rob Reiner was researching for his parody movie This Is Spinal Tap, he made a point of attending a Judas Priest concert in order to familiarize himself with heavy metal culture.
