Chris Jericho and Fozzy have been together for the last 22 years. The rock band was formed in 1999 by Jericho, lead guitarist Rich Ward and drummer Frank Fontsere. One of their hit tracks recently reached a huge milestone.

The AEW star took to Twitter on Sunday and congratulated fans and peers who helped “Judas” earn a Gold record. The 2017 track has sold 500,000 copies to date and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.

For 22 years I’ve heard all the cutdowns & insults about @FOZZYROCK. Well now, WE can all stand behind what our band and hundreds of thousands of our fans worldwide have always known… FOZZY ROCKS! Thx to all who helped #Judas earn a GOLD FUCKIN RECORD! @RIAA #500kSold

Judas is arguably the most popular song put together by the band. It was used as the first official theme song for NXT TakeOver: Chicago in 2017. Jericho began using the song as his theme following his departure from WWE. Now AEW fans sing it every time he makes his way to the ring.
