* ComeForTheXStayForTheY: As a VH1 list said: "Even classical music would sell more if their albums had zombies in the cover!" In short, come for [[{{Mascot}} Eddie]], stay for the EpicRocking, Dickinson's LargeHam, the {{Filk Song}}s, [[Awesome/IronMaiden the awesome]] [[GreatBallsOfFire shows]] and of course, [[CrowningMusic/IronMaiden the awesome music]].

** MOOOOONCHILD! HEAR THE MANDRAKE SCREEEEAAAAM!!!



* ParanoiaFuel: "Fear of the Dark". *Shiver* Every so often, the lyrics replace "someone" with "some''thing''". Of course, it's implied the singer feels this way because [[childrenShouldntWatchHorrorMovies he binged on horror films.]]

* FollowTheLeader: "Be Quick Or Be Dead" is blatantly inspired by JudasPriest's "Painkiller" which was a year old at the time of the song's writing. Both songs see the bands taking on ThrashMetal influences which weren't previously present. "Painkiller" also inspired ex-vocalist Paul Di'Anno's song "Impaler" from his band Killers' album Murder One, also released in 1992.

** Also from "2 Minutes to Midnight": "As the reasons for the carnage cut their meat and lick the gravy/We oil the jaws of the war machine and feed it with our babies."

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: The upbeat and happy istrumental section in the otherwise dark and depressing "The Man Who Would Be King".

** No Maiden existed after Adrian Smith left (Denial of everything post-''Seventh Son of a Seventh Son''... sometimes including the four albums in the TurnOfTheMillennium)

Added DiffLines:

* SlowPacedBeginning: "Empire of the Clouds". While other Maiden tracks had soft intros, the piano-driven sound means the pace is too slow. Add that it takes a while for the guitars to start [[EpicRocking and the fact the song lasts 18 minutes...]]
