Founded by bassist Steve Harris, Iron Maiden infused Thin Lizzy style dueling guitars and throbbing basslines with a more metallic sound, leading the British Heavy Metal explosion circa 1980. Though they've made brilliant music throughout their career (excluding No Prayer for the Dying and Fear of the Dark), Maiden were at their peak from Number of the Beast through Somewhere in Time. Known for blisteringly intense live shows featuring both flawless musicianship and energetic stage antics. Maiden is real fuckin' heavy metal. \m/
"Iron Maiden destroyed at Ozzfest '05. They gave me whiplash of the headbangingest sort. Hell, that was easily worth having to endure 50 minutes of the mallcore Mudvayne." -Me

A great rock band from britain. Songs include Aces High, Phantom of the Opera, and The Trooper.
Iron Maiden kicks Creed's ass.

Arguably the most influential heavy band of all time. Not only are they hands down the most musically talented metal band, they have also harnessed the power of evil will thrashing guitar riffs and explosive lyrics of folklore and true historical events. Anyone who slanders Iron Maiden is an immediate threat to the immortal Gods of Metal. Your days are numbered, and the time will undoubtedly come when Eddie will seek reparations by impaling your soul in a true iron maiden. The forces of evil do not tolerate douche bags who villify the fathers of contemporary metal. Claim allegiance to Iron Maiden or perish in a whirlind of hellish fire. Resistance will only exacerbate the wrath of the almighty one. Hail Eddie, the surveyor of all evil, and executer of flamers who know nothing about heavy metal!
Long live Iron Maiden, Eddie, booze, big 80's chugs and anything cool. Judgement day is near for all tools who don't listen to Iron Maiden!

the fuckin best band ever. they were formed in the east end o'london in '76 by Steve 'arry' Harris, the best bassist and songwriter in the world. They have recorded 13 studio albums so far and every one of them is a fuckin' classic. whoever says that the two Blaze albums are shite dont know what theyre on about. Maiden fuckin' rule!
where ever you are, Iron Maiden's gonna get ya!

1. Most definitely THE greatest band in the history of music. Also the coolest band to be a fan of along with Megadeth and Judas Priest
2. One of the most loved bands in the world along with Slayer and Judas Priest.
3. Quite possibly one of the most talented bands in the history of music, not only on instruments, but with vocals and songwiting ability
4. The reason why we have Power Metal and Thrash metal (both great)
5. People who dislike them are all below the age of 16 and think real heavy music is Slipknot and the like.
1.O my god they are so awesome
2.I walk into a public restroom with my Maiden hat on, some kid looks at me and says "hey-ey! Iron Maiden wooo!!!!!" *devil horns*
3.Listen to Infinite Dreams, thats the highest quality guitar work and songwiting you will ever hear
4. Thank Maiden for great bands such as Metallica (Lars says he got his thrash inspiration from listening to 22 Acacia Avenue)
5.Dipshit Kid: Iron Maiden suck, they are old as hell and soft i listen to real bands like Slipknot who are much cooler.

Simply a great band. Metal rules and Iron Maiden is one of them.

I'm swedish, and Maiden calls their swedish fans blood brothers. I know alot of bands say that to everyone, but I know they don't lie. 55 000 tickets sold out in 2,5 hours here. Pretty good for a country with 9 million citizens.

I think you have to play for 25 years to enter the rock Hall of Fame. Maiden has played 25 years. Don't you think they should be allowed to enter?
Maiden fan: Iron maiden rules. Simple as that
