2 Afraid to Shoot Strangers

I personally like it better than fear of the dark ( my second favorite song on this album) but because its soft then it builds up like fear of the dark but its even better this is the most underrated iron maiden song ever listen to it youll like it a lot

3 Be Quick or Be Dead

I agree that Fear of the Dark should be first however this song is very fast paced and aggressive and Bruce's scream at the beginning always makes my day

"You got to watch them, be quick or be dead! "

4 Childhood's End

Just what the hell is going on- best line 10000000000/10 rating

This song is kinda depressing but its epic

This is such an underrated song should be higher on this list for sure

One of iron maidens most underrated songs ever of one of their most underrated albums. Deserves at least 5th place - wolphert

This is one of the most underrated songs in Maiden's back catalogue - and on this album only the title track is clearly better.

Big case for this song being first single from this album and #2 in running order for the album

8 From Here to Eternity

I love the shorter songs of Iron maiden. From Here to Eternity is just a perfect example for the few awesome simple songs of the band. Which doesn't mean that dislike the longer ones, fear of the dark is amazing, but this Song deserved the 2. Place.

9 Chains of Misery

This song is catchy as hell from this album. It is no.2 fear of the dark is the best followed by this so vote please! Come on

10 The Fugitive

A joke that circulates through the Hardcore Iron Maiden community is that this song is the most complex of all time. Truthfully though this is the 3rd best song on this mediocre album behind the title track and ATSS. - ironmaiden1
