An immensely popular metal band that hails from England, known for their high standard of musicianship, dramatic live performances, and off-kilter lyrical themes. The guitar duo of Adrian Smith and Dave Murray is arguably without equal when it comes to leads, solos, and harmonies. While their prime was roughly two decades ago, their 21st century albums are still first-rate efforts and easily lay all that mainstream junk to waste. Like any other band, they have their detractors, most of whom have precious little knowledge of music.
Iron Maiden are an exemplary band.

THE BEST BAND ON THE UNIVERSE, OF ALL FUCKING TIMES. Steve Haris is my god. I couldn't live if i couldn't hear iron maiden. The other definition (def 38), was a piece of shit and im sure that all we agree, go kill urself bitch. All their albums are fucking godly.( best song has to be Hallowed By Thy Name, i do agre, and Rime of the Ancient Mariner

1.A british heavy metal band formed in 1976, considered by many to be the best band ever (I agree) however some people just cannot cut the awesome metal sound that is iron maiden, and for that i pity them. There live gigs are the best shows you will ever go to, they are also an influence on almost every heavy metal band in the last 25 years (including metallica).
2. A during device popular during the 1600s (imagine a coffin with nails in it)
3. A british doom metal banded formed in 1964... no really...
1. maiden kicked ass at reading festival
