    I've got a handful of Maiden songs on my ipod. I find Maiden's music interesting, but not super enjoyable, if that makes any sense. I like to watch videos of Maiden's concerts, because I enjoy watching them play. In short bursts. I don't play an instrument, but I appreciate them as great musicians.
    For some reason they never clicked with me the way Metallica did.

    Two of their best albums, no doubt.

    RIAA says that Number of the Beast has only one Platinum in the USA. And the year of certification for that album is 1986. But I think it is impossible that NOTB hasn't sold over 2,000 000 copies to this day.

    As I mentioned before, this is a tough poll. After VH, Metallica and Maiden are my #2 and #3 favorite bands. Both incredible, both great for different reasons. Hell, you ask me tomorrow and I will tell you Maiden is my favorite.

    Yes, I know that musician/playing wise, Nicko, Dave, Adrian & Steve blow away Lars and Kirk...... like not even close....haha...

    But don't sleep on James Hetfield.... Best rhythm player in metal? yeah, maybe.... Cliff could also play some bass....

    I agree. Classic Metallica is hard to beat but it took me a while to warm up to them. When MOP hit...I HATED IT. It was like overnight, everybody was suddenly into them. Maiden was my shit from the get go. I actually went backward. Powerslave was my introduction then I heard POM.

    But yes, Hetfield. Undeniable force and a GREAT frontman.

    I love Metallica, but Iron Maiden gets my vote.
    I listen to Maiden a lot more.
    “And what we have at our fingertips is arguably one of the greatest high tenor voices ever – that was in Michael Anthony. In our tiny little corner of the universe, that voice is as identifiable as the high voice in Earth, Wind & Fire, as identifiable as the high voice in the Beach Boys. Van Halen is an indelicate house blend of both – that’s intentionally. So I would always look forward to that reunion.” - David Lee Roth
