Breaking the law

The Judas Priest album Breaking the Law is reflective of the current political climate in America.

The album Breaking the Law was released in 1990 and reflects the turbulent political climate that was being experienced in America at that time. The song Breaking the Law is about a drug dealer who is chased by the cops and has to break every law imaginable to escape. This song can be seen as a metaphor for breaking laws to get out of tough situations. It seems that this song wouldn’t be relevant if it were not for this specific era, when crime rates were high and people were more likely to break laws as they were feeling desperate and oppressed by society.
