I'm 23 and I don't know the Judas Priest song. But I too have always said
"thing" and have never heard of "think". (Used in the context of the
phrase "you've got another ~ coming", which is not to say that I don't
understand the concept of thinking, but is merely to say that I think all
of you who think that thinking "think" is the correct way to think about
filling in the aforementioned phrase are thinking faultily.)
Though I could be wrong . . . It's happened before.
