"United" as written by and Glenn Raymond/halford Tipton....
Look around
They're moving in
Hold your ground
When they begin

We can do it
We can do it and if they wanna they can try
But they'll never get near
Then they can get out of here

Gonna keep on driving
Never stop

United, united, united we stand
United we never shall fall
United, united, united we stand
United we stand one and all

So keep it up
Don't give in
Make a stand
We're gonna win

We can do it
We can do it and if they wanna they can try
But they'll never get near
Then they can get out of here

Gonna keep on driving
Never stop

United, united, united we stand
United we never shall fall
United, united, united we stand
United we stand one and all

So keep it up

United, united, united we stand
United we never shall fall
United, united, united we stand
United we stand one and all

United, united, united we stand
United we never shall fall
United, united, united we stand
United we stand one and all

United, united, united we stand
United we never shall fall
United, united, united we stand
United we stand one and all

    General CommentTo me this song is about how Metal Heads will always be loyal to each other. Like when you listen to Metal it's not like some Rap group that releases one song and then leaves to never be seen again. Bands like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden have been around 30 something years and they both have a loyal following of old and young. Like me im only 13 and I am the only person in my school that listens to Maiden and I stay loyal to my music even though it's impossible to talk about music to other kids.

    General Commentlordoflight, im right there with you, im 14 being the only one in my school to like Judas, maiden, etc
    Anyways, you should feel proud of yourself, honestly i couldnt give a shit if no one in my school likes em or anything its their loss, if anything we're privileged to be able to listen to decent music. Judas priest is an icon to me, i used to follow the crouds and listen to all that rap shit, that was untill i heard "(take these) chains" and i was blown away. I have every priest cd and all halford, and tiptons solo work. Metal will come back and demolish all shit music.

    General CommentI always took it as a message to the fellow metallers to stand their ground and stick it to the man, because they are indeed 'united' in the eyes of the metal gods.

    General CommentI'm pretty certain this song is about Birmingham United, where the Priest is from. Although it could serve as a double meaning and referring to metalheads being united, as well.

    Cheers

    General Commentas a middle school boy i feel i can't speak to anyone about good music. i managed to get my friend into Megadeth. on non uniform days (how all schooldays should be) when i wear my Led Zep, GNR, Nirvana, Metallica, Larry Graham or Dr Feelgood t shirt everyone asks me what they are. then they ask me what Grunge is!!! once someone asked me what Ska and Reggae are! poppy trash music or popular music is taking over Rock, Metal, Jazz, Reggae, Punk, Soul, Rockney and basically every good music genre. but we can't let them!!!! that's what this song means!!!

    QuestionCould this song be a pro-gay rights song?? United they are stronger, than divided (hence why society has tried to keep homosexuals down for so long).
