"You've Got Another Thing Comin'" is a song by British heavy metal band Judas Priest. The title is a word play on the phrase "you've got another think coming". It was originally released on their 1982 album Screaming for Vengeance and released as a single later that year. In May 2006, VH1 ranked it fifth on their list of the 40 Greatest Metal Songs. It became one of Judas Priest's signature songs along with Electric Eye and Breaking The Law, and a staple of the band's live performances. You've Got Another Thing Comin was first performed on the opening concert of the Vengeance World Tour at the Stabler Center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on 26 August 1982 and has been played a total of 673 times through the 2012 Epitaph Tour.
"You've Got Another Thing Comin'" has charted in two countries in United Kingdom and in United States. In the United Kingdom it peaked at No. 66 in the UK Singles Chart and in the US, it reached No. 4 on the Billboard rock chart.
Wayne Parry of the Associated Press called it, along with "Hell Bent for Leather" and "Living After Midnight, one of the "standards against which other metal tracks are measured." Greg Prato of Allmusic wrote that the song was what finally broke Judas Priest into the mainstream in the United States.
