Most Underrated Iron Maiden Songs


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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...

62 The Fugitive

This song is so underrated that is ridiculous!

63 Burning Ambition
64 No More Lies
65 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

66 These Colours Don't Run

I was looking at the best Iron Maiden Songs this song almost didn't even get a percent, same with Prowler and The Reincarnation Of Benjamin Breeg. They should put these songs on there own album with The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Runner and Stranger in a strange land.

This is a good song, brings you in, and launches you out nice and amazed. I would give this song a 14/10, and I mean it.

67 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!

68 Starblind

Some fantastic prog-metal epicness. Their best song since The Evil That Men Do all those years ago.

It's so underrated even on this list its underrated - christangrant

70 The Assassin

Used to be afraid to listen to this song cause it gave me the paranoid feeling of being watched, which is what made it a great song to blare while playing Assassin's Creed 3.

71 Total Eclipse

Nothing like anything else on the album, people hear gangland and think the album is effectively over, then hear hallowed and forget everything else as its too good. But nested between the two is this really cool sounding song.

This song is amazing. Steve's only regret on The Beast was choosing Gangland over this showstopper. Wish it had made the cut for the early days tour. When Bruce comes down with "Gone are the days when man looked down" I get chills after all these years.

A gem that's forgotten because it's followed by one of Maiden's greatest songs.

72 Face In the Sand
73 Wasting Love

What an awesome ballad. The intro riff haunting.

74 Heaven Can Wait

It bothers me that this wasn't on the list. It's a fantastic song that remains a deep track for some reason. - Songsta41

75 The Reincarnation of Benjamin Breeg

One of Maiden's best songs after Bruce and Adrian's return! Still not the most popular one.. Come on people. Listen to this! This is classic maiden.. Slow start and then the bass, leads and vocals just explode!

They say it's popular, but trust me, it's not. It needs more.

One of best Iron Maiden songs of all time.

This is so great song!

76 Invaders

Indeed, it beats arcadia any day! The most underrated Maiden song, in my opinion.

It's just a great song though the fans don't think that the song is great it beats acadia

77 Brighter Than a Thousand Suns

Best song from the best album since Dickinson and Smith came back.

78 The Nomad

Amazing song amazing guitar play amazing vocal play

Amazing soloes and a great unique sound, surprised that this so low.

79 Don't Look to the Eyes of a Stranger

Haven't heard anyone say that they like this song; at least not yet. It's a little repetitive just like The Angel and the Gambler, but definitely not as much; making this one an easier listen than the aforementioned song. At least give this song a chance, guys. Its WAY better than The Angel and the Gambler, since it doesn't sound the same for almost 10 minutes.

Wow great song! Little repetitive but not more than The Angel and the Gambler. That's the worst maiden song ever.

Yeah this song is never talked about by anybody, shamefully underrated. Big time!

80 Rime of the Ancient Mariner

I know among maiden fans its popular but outside of that it's completely not talked about
