"Ram It Down" is the opening track on British heavy metal band Judas Priest's 1988 album, Ram It Down, and was released as a single. "Ram it Down / Heavy Metal" was the third single from the album earlier that year. The song was performed live every night of the tour, but never since.[1]

The song features both a powerful high pitched scream by Rob Halford that opens the song and a dual guitar solo by Glenn Tipton and KK Downing
