Most Underrated Iron Maiden Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 The Clansman

The musical structure of this song is phenomenal. In my opinion, this song deserves a spot in the top 10 iron maiden songs of all time. It also tells an epic tale. - JonnyGordon

Probably the most underrated maiden song ever it rocks!

Yeah this is another Steve Harris masterpiece! Epics for the win!

Awesome tune!

42 Phantom of the Opera

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.

43 Isle of Avalon

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

44 Fear Is the Key
45 Transylvania

Iron Maiden's (album) BEST

46 Aces High

This is underrated? :S It is one of Maiden's most famous songs...

47 Futureal

Truly underrated Iron Maiden song. Virtual XI may fall short on many accounts but this song is one of the best Blaze does with Maiden

48 The Wicker Man

Underrated? There's probably no fan who really dislike this

This is honestly their greatest song from one of their best albums

Best track off of their best album

I think this song is a bit overrated, really.

50 Where Eagles Dare

Whatever the problem, Clint Eastwood's gonna fix it!

Amazing performance from Nicko and probably the greatest six minutes ever in a Maiden gig when they played this in 2005.

51 Dance of Death

Dance of Death is actually critically acclaimed and a fan favorite. Not underrated.

Oh come on, great solos and not to mention excellent intros as always... I personally liked the cover art too

52 The Prophecy

Just listen to it and answer - HOW CAN THIS ONE BE #89?!
Please, people, vote for it! - SnaGem

I could listen to the last 2 minutes for an eternity.

53 Judas Be My Guide

Probably Maiden's most underrated song in my opinion, there is literally nothing to dislike about this song.

OH God. come on, Judas Be My Guide is the most underrated Iron Maiden song ever. It's even underrated on this list. It's definitely one of the best songs from FOTD and my personal favorite as well

Pity they've played this live. Such lucid melodies by Dave.

Its probably the most underrated metal song ever!

54 Murders in the Rue Morgue

A top ten Maiden song. Paul is awesome on this album, and this is my favorite of his.

Absolutely one of my favorites. I can't believe it is so low. Paul's finest moment!

Seriously!? How can this be rated 58? This might be the greatest song with Paul. The chorus is amazing and extremly memorable. This might be the most underrated maiden song (in my opinion)

55 For the Greater Good of God
56 Caught Somewhere in Time

This song is considered to be "good", but it's better than that. It's the best song from Somewhere in Time (a solid album in itself). The lyrics, bass line, Bruce, the synths, EVERYTHING works.

My favorite Iron Maiden song ever

Absolutely epic in every way

Personally this is one of my favorites.

57 Fates Warning
58 Different World

tell me what you can hear
and then tell me what you what you see
every body has a different way to view the world

i would like you to know
when you see the simple things
to appreciate this life
its not to late to learn


Yeah this song is lovely, both this one and children of the damned are so underrated it hurts, people are just idiots.

59 The Thin Line Between Love and Hate

One of my absolute favorites. Definitely needs to be played live. Would love to see how Bruce sings this beautiful song.

One of the best & most underrated song of Iron Maiden. Greatest Guitar riffs that purely rock! Up The Irons!

An amazing epic, maybe a little slow to start, but amazing guitar work and vocals.

The solo that begins at 6.13 is the most sad solo of the maiden and it is awesome
