Best Heavy Metal Band Mascots


The Top Ten

1 Eddie the Head (Iron Maiden) Eddie the Head (Iron Maiden) Eddie the Head is the mascot for the heavy metal band Iron Maiden. He has appeared on every album Iron Maiden has released and also appears in their live preformances.

Eddie transforms many times throughout maiden''s albums as a soldier on the cover of the trooper, a cyborg with no legs on seventh son of a seventh son and even as an Egyptian pharo on somewere in time pretty legendary and influenced a whole new range of metal mascots

The best in the eighties and still the best. How many times do you see some kid wearing a piece of mind or trooper tee they bought from hot topic? They don't even know who Eddie is or even listen to maiden, but they do know that it looks cool which is what this top ten is about.

The best artwork ever! Every song of Maiden I can visualize Eddie doing what is described in the song.

When it comes to mascots, you just can't beat Ed, can you?

2 Vic Rattlehead (Megadeth)

Laugh out loud Overkill and A7X neck and neck for the same mascot.

3 The Guy (Disturbed)

This guy needs to have his own game

Probably my favorite band mascot. Such a unique design from David finch.

It was originally just a face on the back cover of Disturb's first album until it was later given a full body.

It's just a skull with bat wings. That's what makes it so awesome!

7 Murray (Dio)

Best metal mascot ever. Whoever had that idea (probably Ronnie James Dio) was an absolute genius. Murray’s design is awesome and I like the canid qualities (why I’m estimating that Murray is some kind of anthropomorphic hellhound). - PhoenixAura81

8 Not Man (Anthrax)

The funniest one by far

9 Roy (Children of Bodom)
10 Crystar (Danzig)

15 Scary Guy (Metallica)

17 Set Abominae (Iced Earth)

Come on guys! Set Abominae is the best metal mascot! He even has a whole two album and three songs story! Do other mascots have a story? Not that I know of. SET ABOMINAE RULES!

Great mascot for such a great band! - blackphoenix
