Best Iron Maiden Songs

The Contenders: Page 6

101 Virus

It's not on a studio album and it's not well known, but this song is a masterpiece. Definitely the best song from the Blaze Bayley era and one of my favorites.

The more I listen to this song, the more I like it. Its in my top 20, definitely.

103 Age of Innocence Age of Innocence
104 The Man Who Would Be King 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"

It shouldn't be here just that's all I wish more upper.

Iron Maiden filler is better than most bands top stuff.

I'm still one of the only one who doesn't think this is a filler on NOTB but rather the best song on the album.

107 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

Best opening song from Maiden since Caught Somewhere In Time.

Agreed. Best song on the new album. Very powerful

110 Charlotte the Harlot Charlotte the Harlot

WHAT IS THIS SONG DOING ALL THE WAY DOWN HERE?! It's an awesome song. It should be at least in the top 50. - johnpaularguelles

Ok, I know every song has deserved the top 20, and I can't say this is my favourite song because that changes daily, but this managed to keep me listening it for two straight weeks!

111 The Mercenary

This should be in top 5. Listen to it sounds like early Maiden great song

What its doing down here... guys listen to these song... its magnificent, awesome and these song worth to in top 30 at least... just have a look to these song... its really worth listening.. - Sufyaan

91?! This song is awesome and has an incredible solo!

112 Sanctuary Sanctuary

Sanctuary is number 100? That is absolutely absurd. It has the craziest bass and it's a perfect example of how a simple riff can be turned into a masterpiece

love the riff brilliant live better than the studio

Sanctuary is a fun and very catchy song in my opinion! It should definitely be higher than 93rd place.

113 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.

116 The Man of Sorrows

How could anybody not like this?

Superbly harmonised intro section and some really thought provoking lyrics
On of the best from modern Maiden

117 Out of the Shadows Out of the Shadows

This is a song from the album "A matter of life and death". This song must be in the top ten. What a fabulous work by Bruce Dickinson, Steve Harris and Janick Gers

118 2 A.M. 2 A.M.

Very good song, if a new band covered this song, it would be a hit and a break out tune for the new band.

One of the bests songs. Without doubt it should be in this list.

THIS IS the most underrated iron maiden song...

119 Isle of Avalon Isle of Avalon

Really underrated song. Much better than some of the classics, which is saying a lot. The Final Frontier is their best studio album because none of the songs ever got boring, and this just happens to be the best song from that album. Really great song!

120 The Edge of the Darkness The Edge of the Darkness

This song will bring you deep into the jungles of Vietnam since it is a tribute to the fantastic movie "apocalypse now" it also has an awesome solo and a cool opening (like children of the damned)

One of the greatest Iron Maiden songs, it should be in the top 5. I can listen to it over and over again without getting bored. This song is the perfect translation of apocalypse now and heart of darkness.
