Most Underrated Iron Maiden Songs


The Contenders: Page 3

41 Sign of the Cross

People should really give the blaze albums a try they really are great and shows a different more darker style of maiden. But this song man this is like "Hollowed be thy name" of the Blaze era.

Avoided by "fans" because it is Blaze era Maiden. Big mistake on their part. This is a classic song that proved the band could still impress without Dickinson.

It's totally unfair that people hate on Blaze just because he doesn't have Bruce's amazing vocal range!

It's illegal how underrated this awesome song is, the best song from the Blaze era in my opinion

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

43 Killers

This is like the best Paul Di'Anno era song!

The riff in this song is out of this world...

Definitely the best track on the album. It is the definative paul Di'ano song. 10/10

45 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.

46 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.

47 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)

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.

49 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!

50 Fates Warning
51 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

Personally this is one of my favorites.

52 For the Greater Good of God
53 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

54 Age of Innocence
55 Montsegur

The fact this isn't on any Iron Maiden list is sad. Gotta love Hallowed Be Thy Name, Aces High and Number of the Beast, but this is a pretty awesome song. Very aggressive sound for them and one of the first Maiden songs I fell in love with.

The history told in this song and the chorus melody. Out of this world!

That solo part is just beautiful man...

56 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.

57 The Fugitive

This song is so underrated that is ridiculous!

58 Burning Ambition
59 Sun and Steel

Sunlight falling on your steel

This is a great song on piece of mind and it has not much lyrics and its the shortest song on the album about 3 minuets thr onlh songd on piece of mind that is better is the trooper, revelations and still life to tame a land is better to and all songs great on this album but quest for fire

60 Hooks In You

Almost no one talks about this tune! Its a good rocker, its catchy, and Bruce's raspiness shines through well in this song. Very underrated! In fact, almost all the No Prayer album itself is underrated! Its a good album too.

Whoever commented above me, you are so right this is definitely underrated!
