Best Iron Maiden Songs

The Contenders: Page 6XW

101Drifter

The song is called DRIFTER. Not plural.

The closing track from their 2nd album is definitely the most underrated Iron Maiden song.
What a great tune. Go play it right now and turn up the volume.

This song is horribly underrated. Here's my top 10:
1. Hallowed Be Thy Name
2. Drifter
3. Aces High
4. Fear Of The Dark
5. Dance Of Death
6. The Trooper
7. 2 Minutes To Midnight
8. Prowler
9. Killers
10. Brave New World

Just because PD is on here - this song gets no credit. Seeing them do it live blew me away. Best song that night. - KidsHaveNoRock

102Sea of Madness

This is one of the best and most unique composition of iron maiden and it should be at least in the top 20

Had to vote for either this, Drifter, Moonchild, or MITRM as they are the ones that are placed criminally low on this list. Vote them up folks. Up The Irons!

105The Red and the Black

This will become in the top 5, alongside the empire of the clouds! UP THE IRON! Amazing music!

I hope its in the top ten one day along with if eternity should fail and empire of the clouds

Greatest song on The Book of Souls, especially the second part of the song, totally epic!

Great song, it should be in top 20 - jrrsim

107Age of Innocence
108Gangland

It shouldn't be here just that's all I wish more upper.

Iron Maiden filler is better than most bands top stuff.

I'm still one of the only one who doesn't think this is a filler on NOTB but rather the best song on the album.

110If Eternity Should Fail

2 days since the album has been released and so far this is the song that's stuck out the most, best opener since caught somewhere in time.

From the psychedelic intro to the hard hitting fantastic riffs and then that giant chorus! Bruce's vocals are at his best on this track. - wolphert

Best opening song from Maiden since Caught Somewhere In Time.

Agreed. Best song on the new album. Very powerful

WHAT IS THIS SONG DOING ALL THE WAY DOWN HERE?! It's an awesome song. It should be at least in the top 50. - johnpaularguelles

Ok, I know every song has deserved the top 20, and I can't say this is my favourite song because that changes daily, but this managed to keep me listening it for two straight weeks!

115The Mercenary

This should be in top 5. Listen to it sounds like early Maiden great song

What its doing down here... guys listen to these song... its magnificent, awesome and these song worth to in top 30 at least... just have a look to these song... its really worth listening.. - Sufyaan

91?! This song is awesome and has an incredible solo!

116Sanctuary

Sanctuary is number 100? That is absolutely absurd. It has the craziest bass and it's a perfect example of how a simple riff can be turned into a masterpiece

love the riff brilliant live better than the studio

Sanctuary is a fun and very catchy song in my opinion! It should definitely be higher than 93rd place.

117The Fallen Angel

Brave New World is their best Album and this is one of their best songs! -

I love the lyrics, this is truly an IRON MAIDEN song. I just can't stop listening to it. It is a must listen.

118Childhood's End

It's a very well done song that shouldn't be at the very bottom, but it shouldn't be at the top either. One of Maidens good songs

A really, really beautiful with a heart-piercing message. The guitar-work is exceptionally good, while the chorus is so memorable. It's a pity this song is overlooked because the album is not one of the best. Give it a listen, it will skyrocket to the top 30s for sure.

I love this song more than any other Maiden song. Every band always has that one songs which just stands above the rest for only you, and in my case, it's this one. It just hits me on another level than most music does.

One of maiden's best songs and most underrated, should be in top 10 for sure. Powerful lyrics and one of their bests solos, very melodic.

119Tears of a Clown

Best chorus in all of Iron Maiden songs.

120The Alchemist

The alchemist is the ultimate Maiden song! It totally rocks! I love it! It is so good! Like no maiden song I've ever heard! I really love it! Come on people! It should at least be in the top 20! Up the Irons! Maiden For life!
