Best Iron Maiden Songs

The Contenders: Page 5

81 The 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.

82 For the Greater Good of God

This is too tough of a vote there is too many great songs and even though The Loneliness of a Long Distance Runner was the original song that got me into Iron Maiden, and Public Enema #1 is my favorite Maiden song (even though I had to add it in this list myself at #101, which I'm still annoyed about), I have to go with The greater Good of God because it truly is an amazing song.

Lyrics kick ass. Instrumental is epic. It really deserves to be near the top ten.

One of the best ever made... Excellent lyrics, high emotions, amazing melody, just brilliant.

Has to go down as one of the most underrated Maiden songs.

83 No 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".

84 Genghis Khan

Best instrumental by Maiden bar none!

85 The 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.

86 Die 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

This is the sexond best maiden song, the first is hallowed be thy name, but its number one. - undeadfred87

87 The Pilgrim

Best Iron Maiden riff
Very unappreciated song

88 Back 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

89 Lord of Light

This song is absolutely amazing. Adrian displays probably the most powerful Iron Maiden's guitar riff in many years. Besides, the dark lyrics really make you think about the non-sense of the war. Brilliant song.

90 Losfer Words (Big 'Orra)

Very underrated and very great instrumental. - Songsta41

This one is epic... its best of band song like Metallica Orion.

No way this song is not in top 10... its magnificent.

91 Twilight Zone

Anything 80's Maiden should not be over 100

92 Burning Ambition
93 Different World

this one THE MOST AMAZING iron maiden songs I've even heard. I really recommend it to you all!

I think this is the Beast of Iron Maiden songs. It has an amazing riff guitar and nice lyrics. LISTEN IT FIRST! Very recommended for you all

Actually I don't like Heavy Metal songs, but this song can change my feeling and make me like it. I LOVE IRON MAIDEN m/ m/ m/

Really love the vocal harmonies in this and "Wasted Years"

94 Monts├ęgur

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

The best song on dance of death

What? Fantastic song! 51?!

95 Total 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.

Total Eclipse is a good lick and should have been included in NotB.

96 Drifter

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

97 Lightning Strikes Twice

One hell of a song enough said.

Awesome song...very powerful lyrics and very epic song...UP THE IRONS!

98 If 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

This song is fantastic. It's probably one of the most underrated songs I've ever listened to. 106? Come on. The intro from Bruce is amazing and the chorus is so unbelievably catchy and brilliant. This is my 3rd favourite Maiden song after Hallowed Be Thy Name and Fear of the Dark

Best opening song from Maiden since Caught Somewhere In Time.

The first Maiden song I heard. It got me sucked in.
Imagine, in an alternate reality, I heard Fear Of The Dark and Bring Your Daughter to the Slaughter instead of If Eternity Should Fail and The Evil That Men Do. I may have not becoma a Maiden fan.

99 Age of Innocence
100 The Man Who Would Be King

Why isn't this in the top ten. The best maiden intro ever. Just amazing! The way it builds up and then the ending which is just beautiful. "Far far away, the man who should be king"
