I don't know the song, so I just looked it up on youtube. The expression is "You've got another THINK comin'." Most people get this wrong. Don't know what Judas Priest intended, but since some of the lyrics says "If you THINK......" the correct phrase would be "You've got another THINK comin'..."

You got me THINKing on that one, Stacy.
 
The lyrics are 'thing', not to be confused with 'Thang', 'Tang', 'Dang' or 'Poontang'.  Wink
 
I still can't find the current commercial.
 
"You've Got Another Thing Comin'"

One life I'm gonna live it up
I'm takin' flight said I'll never get enough.
Stand tall I'm young and kinda proud
I'm on top as long as the music's loud.
If you think I'll sit around as the world goes by
You're thinkin' like a fool 'cause it's a case of do or die.
Out there is a fortune waitin' to be had
If you think I'll let it go you're mad
You've got another thing comin'.

That's right here's where the talkin' ends
Well listen this night there'll be some action spent.
Drive hard I'm callin' all the shots
I got an ace card comin' down on the rocks.

It's obvious, aka ron, from the lyrics, that the word here should be "think." I just attribute it to the fact that so many people have misheard or misunderstood the phrase for so long that they really have no idea at all that it's "think."Smile

According to Wikipedia and the album jacket, it's You've Got Another Thing Comin'.

Stacy is right, though.

It's supposed to be think, but so many people mishear it then repeat it without thinking about what they're actually saying.

I would tell Judas Priest that if they think it's supposed to be "You've Got Another Thing Comin'", they have another think coming.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

This helps me understand what Stacy and Jimbo are getting at...Thumbs Up

Another think coming

Another think coming is the original form of the colloquial phrase aimed at someone who has a mistaken view. It comes from the old comical expression, If that’s what you think, you’ve got another think coming.

Because think in the second part of the expression is (intentionally) ungrammatical, some people hear another thing coming and repeat it as such. Plus, another thing coming usually makes literal sense, so it’s now more common than another think coming.

The exact origins of another think coming are mysterious, but it appears to be an Americanism, and it does predate another thing coming in the sense expressing disagreement. It goes back at least a century. Here are a few old examples:

"Tap one little bumper and up go your rates, newsflash! I'm just a stupid biotch who doesn't know how to drive"

I say, an expression is only an expression because someone expressed it, so even a variation of an expression becomes itself an expression once it's been expressed.

"Think" may be the origin, but the court of public opinion says that "thing" is an expression as well... partially plagiarized or not.

Hell, for all we know, people used to say "you have another thing coming" all the time, until someone comically said it wrong on purpose once and it got enough attention to become a thing.

Or think.

That's what I thing.

But think just makes more logical sense.

Grammatically, it should be "you have another thought coming", but as the piece aka posted implied, it's supposed to be a sort of humorous saying.

I can see it both ways from a logical standpoint. Think, for reasons already stated, and thing from a "you think it's one thing (or way, or whatever), but it's someTHING else" perspective.

Like...

"If you think you're getting a good pizza from Domino's, you've got another thing coming". That thing being a bad pizza... something tangible. You're getting a bad pizza, whether you rethink it or not.

"Think" seems more humorous, while "thing" seems ominous.  From what I read, "think" is part of the original expression.
