Most Overrated Songs Between Iron Maiden and Black Sabbath

The Top Ten

1 Paranoid - Black Sabbath

I like this song, but I got tired of it after a while.
I know it wasn't intended to be their best song, but it has too many attention.

2 Into the Void - Black Sabbath
3 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

This song was difficult to listen for me.
It is very monotonous and simplistic, especially Ozzy's vocals.
I don't understand why this is considered Black Sabbath's 'best song'.
There are better songs in my opinion.

4 Sabbath Bloody Sabbath - Black Sabbath

It's not even a metal song.
It's a rock song that is very poppy during the chorus.
So, how did this song get so many attention?

5 Wasted Years - Iron Maiden
6 Changes - Black Sabbath

This was a bit boring in my opinion.

7 Running Free - Iron Maiden

This song became a hit, and it is considered a 'fan favorite'.
I don't see why.
It's one of my least favorite songs on the debut.

8 Bring Your Daughter... to the Slaughter - Iron Maiden

I know that 'No Prayer For The Dying' is an underrated album, but I put this here ANYWAY because it was Iron Maidens first and only 'number 1' hit.
I'm still wondering why, because Iron Maiden can do SO MUCH BETTER than this song.

9 Number of the Beast - Iron Maiden

Song is not bad, but Iron Maiden has much better songs that get less attention.

10 End of the Beginning - Black Sabbath

The Contenders

11 2 Minutes to Midnight - Iron Maiden

Not bad, but gets too many attention.

12 Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden

One of those songs that isn't nearly as good as the rest of the album, but it's a single and it has a video so people love it regardless. - TheMaelstromKing

Song is not bad, but it's not the best.
It baffles me that 'Run To The Hills' is one of the MOST listened Iron Maiden songs of all time.
It isn't even my favorite song on 'Number of the Beast'.

13 Headless Cross - Black Sabbath
14 Black Sabbath - Black Sabbath
15 Heaven Can Wait - Iron Maiden
16 From Here to Eternity - Iron Maiden
17 The Mob Rules - Black Sabbath
