Metal God Rob Halford trademarks 'Metal God' video game

Rob Halford – lead singer for Judas Priest and the bearer of the immeasurably cooler-than-ours nickname "Metal God" – has filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office under the "class" of "Computer games; video games; and game controllers for computer games." The name he's seeking to trademark? You got it: "Metal God."

Maybe it's just Halford watching out for numero uno (hey, if our nickname was "Metal God" we'd trademark everything from video games to hair curlers) or maybe, after getting a taste of that Rock Band DLC money, Halford has more palpable ambitions. What could he bring to the world of videogames, you ask? We've got a couple ideas:
  1. Better cover art (see our mashup above)
  2. An all Judas Priest and/or Rob Halford-themed soundtrack (who wants all the filler?)
  3. And lastly, a rhythm game for the bald metalhead – a tragically underserved niche audience
