Most Overrated Iron Maiden Songs


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Holy Smoke - No Prayer for the Dying

Am I missing the pleasant melodies in this song? Complexities? It shows up on a greatest hits album, but might be the only Iron Maiden song that is painful to listen to. There is nothing catchy or interesting or melodious.

Underrated, not overrated.

22 Wasting Love - Fear of the Dark

And show me where to find this song on the best I'm songs list. - Songsta41

23 Revelations - Piece of Mind

Nuh uh. This is one of their best and quite underrated actually. - IronSabbathPriest

24 Phantom of the Opera - Iron Maiden

By far the best song on their debut, what's it doing here?!

Quality material.

Probably one of maiden's worst songs

25 Heaven Can Wait - Somewhere in Time

No, this, Hallowed, Aces, Wrathchild, and Rime deserve no place on this list.

The only song on Somewhere in Time that I skip. Terrible chorus, and vastly overrated. Listen to Sea of Madness and Alexander the Great instead!

The sing-a-long part gets annoying. But other than that, great song. - IronSabbathPriest

26 For the Greater Good of God - a Matter of Life and Death

This song is not overrated it is underrated

In order to be a successful band one must not spread out the word of "religion", they must be neutral unless a Christian Rock band, etc.

The ONLY reason Iron Maiden was able to do this was because they're rich and it was their 14th album.

27 Rainmaker - Dance of Death

I'm tired of this song its noring but its alright but judt has a weird music video and weird lyrics run to the hills is probaly 1 on my overrated but rainmaker 2

28 Angel and the Gambler - Virtual XI

Eh, I don't know what to think of this. Somewhere between underrated and fairly rated. It isn't a great track, and people only know it for being "the worst". - IronSabbathPriest

29 Brave New World - Brave New World

Pretty good track, but I don't like the repetitive chorus, it ruins the song a lot. Otherwise it is great. - IronSabbathPriest

30 Alexander the Great - Somewhere in Time

How? It's not considered top 20 iron maiden songs, while I dare to call it top 5. - Songsta41

31 Where Eagles Dare - Piece of Mind

How is it overrated in any way? It's only been featured in their live sets on two tours. It's not overrated at all. - IronSabbathPriest

32 Empire of the Clouds - Book of Souls

It's about quality, not quantity.

33 Dance of Death - Dance of Death

Nice solo excellent intro

This song wouldn't have made "top 50" in the seven first maiden albums.

I don't really understand what is the good about this song. The chorus is not catchy and in my opinion the guitar solo is horrible. It is an atrocious song.

34 Satellite 15...The Final Frontier - The Final Frontier
35 The Duelists - Powerslave
36 No More Lies - Dance of Death

To be honest, I'm not even sure anyone besides Steve Harris and myself acknowleges this song's existence. It's kinda underrated. Kinda. - IronSabbathPriest

37 Children of the Damned - The Number of the Beast
38 The Wicker Man - Brave New World
39 Powerslave - Powerslave

Ummm.. Extremely underrated

40 Seventh Son of a Seventh Son - Seventh Son of a Seventh Son

About as bad as Can I Play with Madness but it was never praised as much as it - dubsinthetubs
