American 80's metal took off from about 1982 onward. The obvious bands who derived some sort of influence from Judas Priest included:

Armored Saint
Warrior (Parramore McCarty, Joe Floyd)
Quiet Riot
Rough Cutt
Wild Dogs
Keel (possibly)
Y&T (possibly)
Marshall Law (UK)

In later years as Priest moved into heavier industrial metal, a new generation of clones were spawned. Are there any other bands that should be added to the list?
