About Freewheel Burning

"Freewheel Burning" is a song by the British heavy metal band Judas Priest, appearing on their 1984 album Defenders of the Faith, and first released as the first single off that album. The song was released in late 1983, several weeks prior to "Defenders of the Faith". The 12" version of the single contained an extended guitar intro that was omitted on the full-length release. The guitar solo in the song is played by Glenn Tipton. The 12" single has an extended version with a guitar harmony intro not included in the 7" and album version. The B-sides of this single are live versions of "Breaking the Law" and "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" recorded at the US Festival from Glen Helen Park, near Devore, San Bernardino in California on 29 May 1983 in front of an approx audience of 375,000 people. The version of "Breaking the Law" is also the first official version released to feature K. K. Downing's added live guitar solo. The music video contains footage of the band playing while a boy is playing the arcade game Pole Position over which Rob Halford's face is superimposed.

Fast and furious we ride the universe
To carve a road for us that slices every curve in sight
We accelerate, no time to hesitate
This load will detonate whoever would
Contend its right
Born to lead
At breakneck speed
With high octane
We're spitting flames
Freewheel burning
On we catapult, we're thrusting to the hilt
Unearthing every fault, go headlong into any date
We don't accept defeat, we never will retreat
We blaze with scorching heat obliterations everywhere
Look before you leap has never been the way we keep
Our road is free
Charging to the top and never give in never stops the
Way to be
Hold on to the lead with all your will and concede
You'll find there's life with victory on high
