Black Iron Priest

Most underrated Iron Maiden song(s)

56 posts in this topic

Today I listened through both The Number of the Beast and Piece of mind. 22 Acacia Avenue really stuck out to me; it always has, but today something just clicked. With that, I would like to ask you: what do you think is the most underrated Iron Maiden song? Besides the big hits that most people love, what is your favorite Iron Maiden song, or what song do you think gets overlooked?

Have to disagree. Maiden have a reasonable discography but with one exception there's nothing worth hearing after Fear Of The Dark. No doubt there are songs Maiden fans don't rate as highly as they could but that doesn't make them under-rated songs in a broader sense.

I think moonchild is extremely under-rated, for me its possibly the best opening song ever, it just builds and builds at a great galloping pace and Bruce just spits out the lyrics with fury - Epic

I actually thought Futureal was a pretty good song, even though I'm not a big Bailey fan.

Re: Most underrated Iron Maiden song(s) I think both Bruce and Blaze did a great job on Sign Of The Cross. Personally I think gangland is one of their most underrated songs.

Nothing post-Blaze can be considered under-rated. Even AMOLAD, the best album of the four, is only average. With you on DWYBO but Wrathchild gets played all the time live and so can't be under-rated.
