Buddhist Monk Covers Judas Priest’s “Breaking the Law,” Then Breaks Into Meditation




Back in April, we introduced you to Kossan, a Japanese Buddhist monk who has a penchant for performing covers of rock anthems–everything from The Ramones’ “Teenage Lobotomy,” to “Queen’s “We Will Rock You” and The Beatles’ “Yellow Submarine.” Now he returns with Judas Priest’s “Breaking the Law.” It’s a curious cover, not least because he ends the song and breaks seamlessly into meditation. Metal? Meditation? Sure, why not.
