Best Iron Maiden Songs

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Quest for Fire Quest for Fire

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

82 The Red and the Black

This will become in the top 5, alongside the empire of the clouds! UP THE IRON! Amazing music!

I hope its in the top ten one day along with if eternity should fail and empire of the clouds

Greatest song on The Book of Souls, especially the second part of the song, totally epic!

This song is sure to climb the ranking fast. It's awesome and it's very entertaining for the live audiances!

83 The Ides of March 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 No Prayer for the Dying 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".

85 Genghis Khan Genghis Khan

Best instrumental by Maiden bar none!

86 Die With Your Boots On 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

89 Back In the Village 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

90 Lord of Light 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.

91 Losfer Words (Big 'Orra) Losfer Words (Big 'Orra)

Very underrated and very great instrumental. - Songsta41

92 Brighter Than a Thousand Suns 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!

Best song of the post-reunion era!

94 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.

95 Sea of Madness 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!

96 Burning Ambition
97 Drifter 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

98 Lightning Strikes Twice Lightning Strikes Twice

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

99 Childhood's End Childhood's End

It's a very well done song that shouldn't be at the very bottom, but it shouldn't be at the top either. One of Maidens good songs

A really, really beautiful with a heart-piercing message. The guitar-work is exceptionally good, while the chorus is so memorable. It's a pity this song is overlooked because the album is not one of the best. Give it a listen, it will skyrocket to the top 30s for sure.

I love this song more than any other Maiden song. Every band always has that one songs which just stands above the rest for only you, and in my case, it's this one. It just hits me on another level than most music does.

One of maiden's best songs and most underrated, should be in top 10 for sure. Powerful lyrics and one of their bests solos, very melodic.

100 Only the Good Die Young 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
