Judas_Priest_29230[1]In 1990, the british metal band Judas Priest was the subject of a civil lawsuit alleging their recording of the Spooky Tooth song „Better by you, better than me„, which was responsible for the suicide attempts of two young men in Reno, Nevada on the 23rd December 1985. The case was eventually dismissed. The cover version of the Spooky Tooth is on the Judas Priest release „Stained Class“ album.

There are two documenaries about this trial: „Dancing with the Devil“ and „Dream Deceivers„.
