Best Iron Maiden Songs
The Contenders: Page 4XW
This is too tough of a vote there is too many great songs and even though The Loneliness of a Long Distance Runner was the original song that got me into Iron Maiden, and Public Enema #1 is my favorite Maiden song (even though I had to add it in this list myself at #101, which I'm still annoyed about), I have to go with The greater Good of God because it truly is an amazing song.
Lyrics kick ass. Instrumental is epic. It really deserves to be near the top ten.
One of the best ever made... Excellent lyrics, high emotions, amazing melody, just brilliant.
What? 59? Well every maiden song is amazing... Except, hmm well no song is bad.
This song has the best build up by far, I know EVERY maiden song almost by heart
This one gave me chills like a pig
Very, very awesome song! Another great song from the awesome Piece Of Mind. In my opinion this song should be in the top 20's at least. I love the beautiful solo in the beginning of the song! The whole song is just kickass! Should definitely be higher than 68! Please vote. - jennifersanchez
Another awesome song from the awesome Piece Of Mind album! I think Still Life should be a little higher on this list. At least in the top 40.
How the heck is this so low? One of their best songs, in my opinion.
Wow Really.. The song is at least top 30 it's an amazing song and there's little songs like it, piece of mind all the way!V3 Comments
Most people consider this the worst track on Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son. In my opinion, this song is one of the best on the album and one of my favorite Iron Maiden songs. The Prophecy in my opinion should at least be in the top 50. The solo is pretty awesome! VOTE NOW!
Hey PEOPLE!? Are you crazy?! Listen to Intro, main riff, lyrics, and the way how Bruce sings it. Very powerful, touching song with strong lyrics. The outro is also wonderful.
NOW EVERYBODY - LISTEN TO IT and VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!
This one is 89th?! - IT'S NONSENSE! - SnaGem
A really good and a really underrated song! One of my favorites from Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son! It's too bad they never played this live at all. Whatever... The song is awesome and that's all it matters to me.
This song is one of the best songs of iron maiden just listen it the intro the way they sing it and the ending is the best guitar riff ever
Love the way how this song builds up to that killer high-tempo riff.
Very underrated song this one.
Yes, underrated indeed. One of my top 3 songs of all time. This song works for people of any taste.
Raw and insane from low to high and back to low in such a smooth progression set the standard and it still holds up one of the best pieces of music ever if you doubt watch on you tube
WHAT WHAT? 61 ARE YOU KIDDING ME. EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOUR DOING AND PUT ON THIS SONG, THE SOARING CHORUS THE BUILDUP. THIS SONG IS FANTASTIC. Should be in the top 15.V3 Comments
A masterpiece indeed, you really should listen to it. One of the special songs from the album "Killers". - SerialSinner
Best song without bruce. Favorite on "Killers" that and wrathchild.
Such an awesome song by far their best
The absolute best song they ever wrote!V1 Comment
A less serious iron maiden time, a little disappointed that this is so far down the list, gotta love prowler! Gotta love Iron Maiden!
Come on guys, this song kicks SO MUCH ass! Why is it so low down, this is a travesty!V1 Comment
This song is absolutely amazing. Adrian displays probably the most powerful Iron Maiden's guitar riff in many years. Besides, the dark lyrics really make you think about the non-sense of the war. Brilliant song.
A truly underrated song! Could be one of their best the song, well written vocals are awesome... Fans give this song a try is awesome... UP THE IRONS!
Feel like I've been here before... Feel like I've been here before... Great song... One of the best! I don't understand why this song is not in the top twenty!
The fact that one of my favourite Maiden tracks stands at #71 is a testament to how many great tunes this band has
Underrated song! I love it (and a lot of them)V4 Comments
I know this is cheating, but it is just really hard for me to choose just one from these 2 masterpieces, I love them both! (who doesn't? ) Do I like Stranger In A Strange Land or Caught Somewhere In Time? I love them, but if I had to choose, I would choose Heaven Can Wait and Alexander The Great instead.
This is one of the GREATEST songs from Somewhere in Time, Caught Somewhere in Time edges it slightly...
59? Seriously? I thought this was their second greatest song after Rime.
Really? One of their best live songs ever!V1 Comment
I like the powerslave song more but it's not on the list so I voted this, my second favourite iron maiden song. But this is awesome too.
This song rocks and shown that iron maiden will never disappoint us no matter how old they R. I still cannot believe this isn't in the top ten
When the Final Frontier was releases, I was very sceptical about the album. But this song really showed me that whatever age they are, Maiden never disappoint.
Maiden best EddieV2 Comments
This song simply HAS to be placed higher. If this song were there in powerslave or some other famous album people would be raving about it. But no because it's from a new album, people think it's not that great. Even el dorado, mother of mercy - all awesome songs that have to be in the top 25 at least.
This is very underrated song.. its got to be one of maiden's best songs ever...
143?! Has no one actually listened to this song?! A true masterpiece, astonishing as it's a recent one(2010) and shows unequivocally that Iron Maidens still rocks!
Just love it - my personal favorite from "The Final Fortune"
This is an awesome song! A very underrated track. One of the best from Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son! Too bad they never played this live though. I think it should be a little higher on the list.
I love Only The Good Die Young! One of my favorite Iron Maiden songs of all-time! I think it should be at least in the top 30's. - jennifersanchez
Masterpiece song off a masterpiece album. - Brobusky
This is one of the MOST underrated songs of ALL of Iron MaidenV2 Comments
Simply unbelievable song. A very powerful, epic composition. Anyone who loves Iron Maiden (especially the newer, more complex stuff) will love this song. My favourite song by my favourite band! The instrumental part on the middle is just breathtaking. This masterpiece needs to be much, much higher up the list.
I'm going to say this: there are so many EPIC! Maiden songs in my head right now that it's hard to actually choose one song from all of that... But this song is just speechlessly incredible
Amazing riffs! My second favorite maiden song. Best of the brave new world album.
Top 20 in my opinionV3 Comments
this one THE MOST AMAZING iron maiden songs I've even heard. I really recommend it to you all!
I think this is the Beast of Iron Maiden songs. It has an amazing riff guitar and nice lyrics. LISTEN IT FIRST! Very recommended for you all
Actually I don't like Heavy Metal songs, but this song can change my feeling and make me like it. I LOVE IRON MAIDEN m/ m/ m/
Song got me into metal! Amazing brutal yet melodic riffs.. Awesome video as well.V5 Comments
This song rocks! Gotta love the pedal beat in this song that starts in the beginning and goes on entire song!
This is such an underrated iron maiden song.
Can't believe it was not in the listV2 Comments
Nobody is voting for this just because it's from the new album, well that new album just happens to be pretty much the best one they ever made, topping even the number of the beast. Iron Maiden have flopped quite a few albums, and unfortunately, we've seen quite a lot cheesy maiden over the years, but their new album has been far from disappointment. This is where Bruce's voice is at it's best, deeper then previous albums, more powerful and operatic then ever. His singing in this song represent what metal vocals should be, not grunting growling, snarling and screaming, but pure, deep, immense, powerful and operatic. Dickinson is truly the greatest singer of our age, and the book of souls is one of the only songs that show him at the pinnacle of his might and power. Topped with superior poetry by Steve Harris, epic guitar work by the trio of riff masters Smith, Murray, and Gers, Book of Souls is a display of Maiden at it's best, yet it is still underrated and placed below the inferior ...more
Greatest Song from the New Album!
Amazing song from amazing album.
I think that this is their most underrated song. It's got catchy guitar riffs, it is well written and it has beautiful melodies with the guitar lines and the vocals. In my opinion, this is their most beautiful song and is also my favourite.
What?!? This song DESERVES to be right up there with the best! The solo @ the end is pure epicness... Too bad most of the people don't think so... Quite simply one of their best songs.
In my opinion an easy number one! Love the lyrics, the interesting cord progression at the start and the sublime outro section.
One of my favorite Iron Maiden songs. I consider it one of Bruce's best vocalized songs. Very deep lyrics and a lot of emotions involved. An epic song!V3 Comments
This is a soon-to-be iron maiden anthem, it's that divine! The amazing intro, the spectacular build-up and finally the godly chorus plus the epic latter half of the song make it one of iron maiden's best songs not only from Final Frontier but also of all time. In fact, it deserves to be a metal legend compared with hallowed be thy name and the trooper; and I'm sure it will be one.
Also, get El Dorado, Satellite, The Alchemist higher because they all are insane songs from the highly rated album Final Frontier.
Why isn't this in the top ten. The best maiden intro ever. Just amazing! The way it builds up and then the ending which is just beautiful. "Far far away, the man who should be king"V1 Comment
I can't believe this song isn't in the top 10! Aces high is my favorite song and this has gotta be my second favorite
This is an incredible song! It should really be in the top 10, the chorus is absolutely amazing
Best Maiden Song Ever! Should for sure be in the top 10. Brave New World Owns! -
Catchiest tune of any Maiden songV1 Comment
