The greatest metal band in the world. People who say Metallica owe nothing to them because they started at the same time, YOU ARE WRONG. Steve Harris formed Iron Maiden in 1975, six years before James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich's first meeting.
The current lineup is:
Lead Vocals - Bruce Dickinson
Bass - Steve Harris
Guitars - Dave Murray, Adrian Smith, Janick Gers
Drums - Nicko McBrain
Each member is amazing in their own way, and the band has stood the test of time against punk, 80's pop, grunge and nu-metal (totally different to Maiden, and SHIT)
Steve Harris formed a band hoping to live up to his metal peers only to surpass them.
Nicko McBrain has a funny face :p
Phantom of the Opera and Hallowed Be Thy Name are amazing songs

A torture/execution device from Medieval Germany, which consists of an iron coffin lined with spikes on the inside of the doors. The doors were closed SLOWLY so that the accused criminal would suffer maximum pain and anguish, sometimes for days, before finally dying of the resulting puncture wounds and suffocation.
Legend has it that a German coin counterfeiter was sentenced to the Iron Maiden. For the last two days of his life, the forger cried in vain while the spikes went through his body.

1)A british heavy metal band. Often considered the greatest of its time, it was and still is one of the most influential groups to this day. The best songs are too numerous to list here, but some of their best are 2 minutes to midnight, the Trooper, Run to the Hills, Wratchchild, and Hallowed be thy name. Currently, there are 3 guitarists in this band. Dave murray, Janick Gers, and Adrian Smith. The other members are the leader of the band and bass player, Steve Harris, vocals Bruce Dickinson, and drummer Nicko Mcbrain. After decades of being a band, the group has not slowed down and they are still making albums. They are considered legendary along with bands such as Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, and Motorhead. MAny people underestimate this great band.

2)A medieval device of torture from the movie Man in the Iron mask i believe. It is a coffin with spikes on the inside

3)A song by the british metal group Iron Maiden
