Best Songs On Iron Maiden's The Number of the Beast

Best songs on the greatest metal album of all time. I put the songs in order of position they have on the album so don't complain about hallowed be thy name starting off in last place.

The Top Ten

1 Hallowed Be Thy Name Hallowed Be Thy Name

1 hallowed be thy name
2 children of the damned
3 the prisioner
4 22 acacia avenue
5 the Number of the beast
6 Invaders
7 run to the Hills

Hallowed Be Thy Name, in it's rightful place. Everything in this song is magnificent! The vocals, the guitar, the bass, everything!

One of the best songs ever made - christangrant

6 22 Acacia Avenue

This is easily the best song on the album behind Hallowed Be Thy Name. Some of the most haunting solos and vocals, as well as incredible memorable riffs.

1) Hallowed Be Thy Name
2) 22 Acacia Avenue
3) Run To The Hills
4) The Number Of The Beast
5) Children of the Damned
6) The Prisoner
7) Gangland
8) Invaders
9) Total Eclipse

This song seems to be very underrated. I think it's better than The Number of the Beast - The Number of the Beast has a cool intro and I guess people put it high for the intro. - Metal_Treasure

Amazing tune, should be in top 4. - EddieVanHalen2001

6 excellent songs on this album with little to choose between them - this is my favourite though

7 Invaders

This song has such a catchy riff. - PureMayhem

8 Total Eclipse

Totally underrated, doesn't deserve to be the last one.

Come on it's better than invaders

9 Gangland

Not the worst, just the 9th best - Alkadikce

This song is so underrated. It's sad that it's so low. I'd put it in 5-9

Might very well be the worst Maiden song, period - dubsinthetubs

It's beter than total eclipse
