Worst Iron Maiden Songs
The Contenders: Page 2
Terrible song, terrible album. Not a song with a beat. RIP Clive.
It will been funny if this song is number one because come after the best maiden's song (hallowed be thy name)
It ruins the Number Of The Beast album, and it is way worse than Gangland.
All tracks of the album are great, what exactly do you find bad about it? - levtomas1998V 1 Comment
Why is Futureal here? One of the few greatest songs from Blaze era. Everything in No prayer for the dying is bad, but Holy Smoke and Bring your daughter...
There isn't a Maiden song I particularly hate, and surprisingly I actually enjoyed NPFTD, but I have to say that The Assassin is THE WORST Maiden song ever. Sounds more like an awful broadway/show-tune villain song. Just bad.
Hey this song is kinda catchy my worst song is the apparation just boring but not
Not good I've tried listening to it it's ok just for me like a 3.5 out of 10
Hell no this is Iron Maiden's #1 Best Songs you've got to be kidding with this being in the Worst list - TheMetalTechKid73
Why does everyone like this song. There is other songs better than this
Not their worst song! However it gains my vote for being so damn overrated! - DeadAsian
Very bad song, alexander the great is the best song!V 2 Comments
What on earth is this doing on here? It's one of the best songs on the Dance of Death album.
Borderline power ballad. Almost as bad as Nothing Else Matters. Totally shameful in fact. Nothing as bad has been done before or since. Can't believe it has become and encore song. What are they thinking?!?! Should be number 1. My vote 1/10.
So many people like it I just don't just like when the wild wind blows song my vote for this song 4/10
Repetitive and annoying. A song that highlights the problems of Virtual XI. (Exceptions being The Clansman, Futureal, and Como Estais Amigos
Anyone voting for this Killers classic as Maiden's worst song shouldn't be allowed to listen to music.
I guess I just don't get it. I mean, it's so out of place on Killers, which is a kick ass raw (yet refined) album of the mid to late NWOBHM era, let alone so outta place for Iron Maiden in generalV 1 Comment
This song is awesome, what is it doing on this list!?
Really? This is one of the few good Maiden songs of the 90's.
This song somehow is an 'epic' I do not agree. 2 god damn minutes is just praying by a random guy, there are 7 minutes of guitar which get told quick, and the singing isn't too strong. An awful track to open The X Factor. - cameronbrown
The Number Of The Beast album would be FLAWLESS with out this song. The chorus is AWFUL!
The chorus is annoyingly repetitive, other than that, it's fine. - IronSabbathPriest
