83Mother Russia

Only intro is enough for this song to be in top 10

This is one of my favorite Maiden song by far the most underrated

This song is in the 85th place? Unbelevable.
This is the song that made me love iron maiden.

85The Clansman

Absolutely don't have clue why this is on 41RANK?! This is awesome strong song that should be in TOP ten

This song is my favourite, but I'm speaking about the live version of Rock in rio, which is really better than the original. This should be in top 10.

This song is so amazing... Especially the solos and steve's bass work... The guitars, the bass and the drums blend together to make it one of the best maiden songs ever... This one HAS to be in the top ten...

Love the rock in rio live version

86The Ides of March

Even if it's an instrumental it shouldn't be down here. This is a very good song, it should be in the top 30.

87No Prayer for the Dying

The quality of the recording sound of this song is amazing. The sound of iron maiden in this title album is totally different from their previous album. The sound is raw, clearly visible yet freshly energetic & powerful as if you are listening this inside the recording studio while they play this on one take. I totally like the sound of nicko mcbrain's drum in this song. This song deserves better ratings than this!

Besides Blaze Bayley's albums, this has to be the most underrated and trashed albums of Iron Maiden. And I have no idea why. This song is so fantastic with Bruce's voice and the beautiful guitars.

No prayer for "No prayer for the dying".

88The Great Unknown
89Futureal

People don't like the version by Blaze Bayley, and neither do I. But covered by Bruce Dickinson, this song is really good. The original is quite awful, but Dickinson's version is tremendous and is possibly his best vocal performance yet

How comes that Virtual XI is not represented here?! It is a very good LP, I don't know what the issue with this LP is.

The one song that Blaze sings better than Bruce. Should be in the top forty at least.

I love that song and it's lyrics. I think this is their best song.

90Monts├ęgur

Why is this at number 50? This song is amazing.

91Die With Your Boots On

Some of iron maidens greatest most underrated songs are way down the list, this one should be top 50 - wolphert

This song always gets looked over, but top 50 without a doubt.. This song is a great song, the chorus, the intro riff and the structure it's just a great iron maiden song!

94? Huh? The part where it kicks in half way through is one of the best bits of any Maiden song

92The Pilgrim

Best Iron Maiden riff
Very unappreciated song

93Genghis Khan

Best instrumental by Maiden bar none!

94Back In the Village

So sad this is down here, one of the best songs of powerslave: also great album

Awesome song, awesome riff. One of my favorites. Maiden just has so many great songs but it doesn't belong this far down!

Are you joking me? This is one of the greatest riffs in any iron maiden song!

Best intro to any song they have my personal favourite. Solos rip as well

95Lord of the Flies

Such an underrated song, it should be much higher on this list.

96Brighter Than a Thousand Suns

Just Brilliant! Great Guitar riffs to play and great to listen from begin to end.
Too Underrated!

How is this not number 1? This has a great buildup to it, a beast solo, and the lyrics 'Bombers launched with no recall, minute warning of the missile fall. Take a look to your last sky, guessing you wont have time to cry" will stick with me forever. Serously people get with the program here! VOTE NOW!

By far Iron Maiden's most powerful song;it should at least be in the top 10, seriously, why are the best songs always underrated?
The lyrics, riffs and the construction are all fantastic!

Best song of the post-reunion era!

Very underrated and very great instrumental. - Songsta41

98Invaders

A great opening track to one of the group's best album-bass and guitar work are solid.

99Total Eclipse

Total Eclipse is a very underrated Iron Maiden song. It's also pretty cool as well. In my honest opinion, this song is one of the better tracks on Number Of The Beast. I think that Total Eclipse should be top 60 at least. Should be higher than 117. Please vote.

People comment about how great NOTB is when they've probably only heard three songs: the title track, Run to the Hills, and Hallowed. This is one of the many hidden gems on the album. Invaders also deserves a little more respect

Just listen to it and you'll see that it really rocks.
