Best Iron Maiden Songs

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Quest for Fire

Why? Why is this so low?!? It deserves at least top 50!

82 The Duellists

Incredible lyrics and melody, unbelievable this is so low on the list

My favorite Maiden Song, so much power and the twin guitars, Fight!

Hahaa 99th place, I respect all maiden fans but there are so many immature listeners, easy top 5, the vocals, the riffs, the bass, and them solos,. Been a fan for 17 years and listened to them every day this is definitely for the more mature fans

83 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.

84 Only the Good Die Young

This is an awesome song! A very underrated track. One of the best from Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son! Too bad they never played this live though. I think it should be a little higher on the list.

I love Only The Good Die Young! One of my favorite Iron Maiden songs of all-time! I think it should be at least in the top 30's. - jennifersanchez

Masterpiece song off a masterpiece album. - Brobusky

This is one of the MOST underrated songs of ALL of Iron Maiden

85 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".

86 Genghis Khan

Best instrumental by Maiden bar none!

87 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

88 Holy Smoke

What on earth is this doing here?

136? What? I do not understand why this is where it is. It should at least be in top 20.

The only maiden song that contains swearing words.

Good song what - undeadfred87

89 The Pilgrim

Best Iron Maiden riff
Very unappreciated song

90 Lord of the Flies

Great song

Saints and sinners

Such an underrated song, it should be much higher on this list.

I love the book, and love the song.

91 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

92 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.

93 Brighter Than a Thousand Suns

Just Brilliant! Great Guitar riffs to play and great to listen from begin to end.
Too Underrated!

How is this not number 1? This has a great buildup to it, a beast solo, and the lyrics 'Bombers launched with no recall, minute warning of the missile fall. Take a look to your last sky, guessing you wont have time to cry" will stick with me forever. Serously people get with the program here! VOTE NOW!

By far Iron Maiden's most powerful song;it should at least be in the top 10, seriously, why are the best songs always underrated?
The lyrics, riffs and the construction are all fantastic!

Good Album, brillant Song, could be addicted to this.
"take a look to your last sky"

96 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.

97 Sea of Madness

Weekend Warrior above this masterpiece? What a SHAM! - Joel1995

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!

98 Burning Ambition
99 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

100 Lightning Strikes Twice

One hell of a song enough said.

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