    NWOBHM was a scene (not a time period or sound) that started in the mid 70's. Judas Priest was too old and never took part in it. Motorhead formed late enough but was separate from the scene and had major label support from the get go thanks to Lemmy's time in Hawkwind.

    Judas Priest formed too early and never participated in it. [2] The same for Motörhead. They weren't a part of the NWOBHM because they were earlyer on the screen as a influence for the NWOBHM.

    Priest & Motorhead both pre date NWOBHM. They should be more aligned with the dawn of Heavy Metal, not a 'new wave'.

    truth_in_chains Ever heared that NWOBH started in 1979, and Priest started in 1970, so you're completly wrong. Stop tagging Priest and Motörhead with this tag!
