Most Overrated Iron Maiden Songs


The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Holy Smoke - No Prayer for the Dying

Am I missing the pleasant melodies in this song? Complexities? It shows up on a greatest hits album, but might be the only Iron Maiden song that is painful to listen to. There is nothing catchy or interesting or melodious.

22Wildest Dreams - Dance of Death
23Revelations - Piece of Mind

Nuh uh. This is one of their best and quite underrated actually. - IronSabbathPriest

24Wasting Love - Fear of the Dark

And show me where to find this song on the best I'm songs list. - Songsta41

25Blood Brothers - Brave New World

I don't understand why people love this song. The chorus isn't quality maiden material, and its too over glorified to be an epic song.

This is overrated the chorus is catchy but it is repeated too quickly and you get sick of it. Honestly it is noty a good hit of brave new world why does everyone love it? It shouldn't of been played live at rock in rio.

26Phantom of the Opera - Iron Maiden

By far the best song on their debut, what's it doing here?!

Probably one of maiden's worst songs

27Heaven Can Wait - Somewhere in Time

The only song on Somewhere in Time that I skip. Terrible chorus, and vastly overrated. Listen to Sea of Madness and Alexander the Great instead!

No, this, Hallowed, Aces, Wrathchild, and Rime deserve no place on this list.

The sing-a-long part gets annoying. But other than that, great song. - IronSabbathPriest

28Rainmaker - Dance of Death

I'm tired of this song its noring but its alright but judt has a weird music video and weird lyrics run to the hills is probaly 1 on my overrated but rainmaker 2

29Angel and the Gambler - Virtual XI

Eh, I don't know what to think of this. Somewhere between underrated and fairly rated. It isn't a great track, and people only know it for being "the worst". - IronSabbathPriest

30Where Eagles Dare - Piece of Mind

How is it overrated in any way? It's only been featured in their live sets on two tours. It's not overrated at all. - IronSabbathPriest

31Seventh Son of a Seventh Son - Seventh Son of a Seventh Son

About as bad as Can I Play with Madness but it was never praised as much as it - dubsinthetubs

32The Duelists - Powerslave
33Satellite 15...The Final Frontier - The Final Frontier
34No More Lies - Dance of Death

To be honest, I'm not even sure anyone besides Steve Harris and myself acknowleges this song's existence. It's kinda underrated. Kinda. - IronSabbathPriest

35Empire of the Clouds - Book of Souls

It's about quality, not quantity.

36The Prisoner - The Number of the Beast
37Dance of Death - Dance of Death

This song wouldn't have made "top 50" in the seven first maiden albums.

I don't really understand what is the good about this song. The chorus is not catchy and in my opinion the guitar solo is horrible. It is an atrocious song.
