Bart paying the price

This coming August, all 24 seasons of The Simpsons will be available to stream on FXNOW, an on-demand video app for FX, FXX and FXM networks. As the longest-running show in television history, that's a lot of Simpsons action -- 530 episodes, apparently, which is enough to wipe out almost a year's worth of productivity. Time to invest in a new couch.

Recently, The Simpsons made a heavy metal no-no when they called Judas Priest a "death metal" band on January 5 episode. Judging from the clip of the offense below, during which Judas Priest plays "Respecting the Law", they also managed to stereotype all Swedes as death metal fans. Amidst outcries of "not trve,", The Simpsons were quick to correct the error via this past Sunday's opening blackboard gag.

Watch the offending clip below...

Are you just guessing that it's the longest running show in television history? I think there are soaps that have been around longer, yeah man

It's the longest-running animated series, longest running sitcom and longest running scripted primetime series in television history. There are tons of other shows that have run for 40, 50, 60+ years.

LOL to Simpsons writers and fans that associate Judas Priest with death metal. Almost as out of touch as our fine president.

The Simpsons producers need to hire the Pelly twins to get more "hip" bands on the show, like Speedy Ortiz and Allston Shit Collective.
