IRON MAIDEN DOESN'T WRITE LOVE SONGS? WHAT ABOUT "WASTING LOVE" AND "22 ACACIA AVENUE"? | made w/ Imgflip meme maker
Of course! Maiden for the history knowledge!

"Charlotte the Harlot" and the sequel "22 Acacia Avenue" are about prostitution. XD They also do literature like "Rime of the Ancient Mariner" and Celtic lore like "Isle of Avalon". Look up and down their catalogue and you'll find little of the usual concerns of metal bands. ;)

I mean,that's why Iron Maiden is one of my favourite bands:absolutely rich discography! The only flaw is the freaking Blaze Bailey era! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QkUVto9fOpo This is absolutely my Iron Maiden favourite,both lyreically and musically!!!

You're not the first person who told me they prefer "Somewhere in Time". :) I'm pretty much favoriting whatever strikes my fancy at whatever moment.

I get what you're saying about the Blaze era, but two of my favorites from that time are 'Man on the Edge' and 'The Clansman', they still did some of those songs live after Bruce returned.

Totally forgot about "The Clansman"! The song easily tops everything Maiden recorded during the 90's,and even some 2000's stuff!

Speaking about Iron Maiden,I introduced KenJ with this Serbian meme,and I think it would be a shame if I left you unaware of it! It's called "Sviraj Mejdene"! Pronounciation:Sweerhay Maideneh,meaning:Play some Maiden!

That too. :) It's why they're my favorite metal band, me being a history major. I don't feel stupid listening to them. That, and they play a mean tune. ;D

The Rime of the Ancient Mariner - The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Phantom of the Opera - Phantom of the Opera

Just kidding, I totally get what you're saying. Listening to a Maiden tune made me curious about the subject matter and I'd go digging up research on it.

Up the Irons!

The Trooper is great ale too, btw!

I've had The Trooper ale and was surprised how palatable it was, though I guess I shouldn't have been being it was made by a reputable British brewery. I haven't been able to find any of their 666 ale though.

Rime of the Ancient Mariner came from the Samuel Taylor Coleridge poem. I think the influence for The Trooper came from a similar direction also as Tennyson's poem The Charge of the Light Brigade was pretty much required for memorization in English schools.
