I really can't get into Iron Maiden yet almost everyone from round here owns their t-shirts! So I'm thinking they must be pretty good but anyhting I've herad by them is crap! Does anyone agree? Can anyone who likes them tell me any of their stuff that's worth listening to?

The Trooper, Aces High, Run to the Hills, Wrathchild...are probably their most famous and also my favourites.

Iron Maiden pretty much invented or revolutionised harmonised guitars.

Let me guess, the people who go round with their t-shirts are just like 14-year old kids who've heard The Trooper and are like "woah these guys rock I better get their t-shirt so people think I know about and like Heavy metal!!"

yeh i agree. i struggle to like them, after listening to most of their albums, their songs sound very similar. they dont do anything to vary their style.

iron maiden are metal gods - i wouldn't say they have any "crap" songs, they have a couple that are a bit dodgy but overall theyre musics amazing, get the brave new world album!

Yep, they pretty much influenced everybody the metal world today. Although they didn't invent harmony guitar lines (Wishbone ash, judas priest and Thin lizzy done that) they pretty much popularised it in the metal genre.

Listen to Brave new world or Dance of death if you like contemporary sounding metal records. When you appreciate those for you'll pretty much like anything in their back catalogue. As Captain Planet said, those kids probably don't even truely appreciate how great maiden really are.

"Wow.... your taste in music sucks just about as much as your gear."

sorry but i'll never understand people who just come on to post stuff like that. i mean, what's the point? waste of time. anyway, i used to LOVE maiden, as in they were my absolute favourite band and i went to the gigs etc. got the albums. But then i got better myself at playing and started going off them, as all their stuff sounded sort of samey to me. I respect them still for their contribution to music but i dont really like them anymore. Having said that, IM GOING IN DECEMBER TO SEE MAIDEN AND TRIVIUM so dont listen to me too much.
