List Rules Vote for your favorite Iron Maiden songs, not just singles and hits.

List of Iron Maiden songs, ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. Maiden is the quintessential heavy metal band, setting the tone for every rock and metal act that followed them. Their mascot Eddie the Head is one of the most iconic drawings in art history, and he appears on every Iron Maiden album cover. Tracks like "Run To The Hills" and "Fear Of The Dark" will go down in rock history, but are they the best the band has to offer?

Music videos and lyric videos are included next to each track name, so if you haven't heard a song you can listen to it right here on this list. Is one of your favorite Iron Maiden songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top. If the order of this list bothers you, then start a revolution and fight the system by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
