Judas Priest's album "Turbo" is the band's 10th studio album, and was released in 1986.
The track "Reckless" was asked to be on the soundtrack of the movie "Top Gun" but Judas Priest declined, both because they thought the film would flop and because it would have meant leaving the song off "Turbo".
"Parental Guidance" was written and recorded in response to Tipper Gore's attack on the band. Her organization, the Parents Music Resource Center (PMRC), placed "Eat Me Alive" (from Defenders of the Faith) at No. 3 on their list of offensive songs (a.k.a. the "Filthy Fifteen"), as it allegedly was about performing oral sex at gunpoin.
The album was ranked No. 39 on Metal-Rules.com list over the 50 greatest glam metal albums, although it is not a glam metal album (wikipedia).
"Turbo" is one of my favorite Priest albums. And "Turbo Lover" is my all time favorite Priest song. I love the whole album! So many amazing tracks, vocals and guitar play. The songs are catchy and spot on rock n' roll!
