Most Underrated Iron Maiden Songswolphert
The Contenders: Page 2
This song is incredible! It's one of the epic songs of Iron Maiden's career, based on the book Dune by Frank Herbert. I think it hasn't gotten the attention it deserves because the band when on to create additional songs based on literature, which ended up eclipsing To Tame a Land (such as Rime of the Ancient Mariner). This song is every bit as well-written as Hallowed Be Thy Name, but just hasn't gotten the same level of recognition. Many songs which came after would not been possible without To Tame a Land being written first because elements featured here defined a distinct stylistic formula that would later become part of Iron Maiden's trademark sound. Many songs that appeared on later albums can be traced back to this song.
There most underrated album closer by a long shot! - wolphert
This is "Most underrated Iron Maiden song" - #66 on these listV 1 Comment
People say it is horrible but technically it is a good song with nice music it isn't that bland as people say
There's no word to describe my love for this song it's so underrated, such a catchy riff and guitar solo... Desreves at least 5th place. - wolphert
Contains one of the coolest riffs I have ever heard.
First iron maiden song that I personally found myself REALLY enjoying it. - Shokan2000
Great riff, and funny lyrics
Listened to this song for the first time in years yesterday. Blow away. In my top 20 Maiden tracks for sure. - IronManiac
If there's a song from Fear of the Dark that should be played live its this one.
Very underrated. The guitar solo combined with the on-off drum beat at the same time is a classic part. The intro was awesome. Should be played live. Too bad Nicko can't play the song like it is supposed to be. (that is another topic... )
This song gets far too little praise. Despite coming from Number of the Beast, this song beats most of the songs on the album in my opinion - BeeBlue
It's one of the greatest maiden songs of all time
A great up tempo song, with Bruce just screaming his heart out. Awesome!
Bruce is absolutely awesome on this song, more so than any other songs on the Final Frontier. The chorus is the best part.. Ya know... WESSTTWAARD THE TIDE!
There's also a pretty nice guitar part.
This is one of my favourite songs off of Killers, it's got an almost prog feel to it, it's an amazing song, it's not very well-known but that makes it better.
I can't stress enough how much I love the first two albums. Paul di'anno is an amazing and underrated vocalist. Out of all the lists I made on this website this is my favourite as it shows people that Iron Maiden have so so many good songs that don't get the recognition they deserve. - wolphert

This song is fantastic but not underrated. It's #9 on the list of Best Iron Maiden Songs. - Songsta41
This song is very underrated. It is one of the best metal songs of all time. The lyrics are amazing, the whole story can be considred as an extended metaphor of life. The bassline guitar riffs, solos are amazing.V 1 Comment
It amazes me that iron maiden fans completely walk past this song. it's so good! Such iron maiden! Fast style, dickinson's voice, the chorus, and pretty much everything! Why so underrated!? Even on an underrated songs list?
Fantastic song, and their best single. Brings back memories of Judas Be My Guide - all the best Maiden tracks are hidden gems!
Most Underrated Song Ever Written
Easily the most underrated song, an insanely brilliant chorus, and of course the riffs are divine. It's a pity that the good stuff is forgotten so easily. A relatively slow start, followed by head-banging madness to make it one of the most memorable iron maiden songs of all time.
Every single dianno era song is brilliant. Its hard to choose the best but this is definitely the most underrated. - wolphert
It's the second best heavy metal song with slow start (behind "fade to black (Metallica") I've ever heard
1993 version was slightly different and I loved it although Bruce was leaving at the time
Not sure why so many people didn't like this song from the Final Frontier album. But I feel this song's chorus is one of Iron Maiden's best. That along with the Longest Day, and Face in the Sand. Great build up song.
Up the Irons!
One of my favourite maiden songs! The song really suits the title and I love the intro and chorus
This is underrated? :S It is one of Maiden's most famous songs...
