Today Eddie Trunk reveals HIS top 20 Maiden songs ranked from #20 to #1 on Sirius XM 106.

What would be my top 20? I'd need to think about it some...

My fav is kinda out the norm. The song iron maiden has always been my go to. Children of the dammed second. But whatever old song is on at the time is my fav after that.

I cant make a list of best songs or albums. There are some better than others, but it really depends as on my mood. This applies to any great band that has been around and has a deep playlist.

That's a tough one!! I could rank my favorite albums but it would be harder to rank my favorite songs. Too many to choose from to land at just 20. I may have to try one day, but I have a feeling it will take hours and a giant eraser as I try and put them in order.

Thanks for posting the list kkkreg. 6 songs from the first 2 albums on his list. Only 1 post reunion. After Infinite Dreams, I'd have a hard time numbering my favorites, but it would probably include a few that came out after the reunion like Out of the Silent Planet, Greater Good of God, Thin Line Between Love and Hate, possibly either Book of Souls or Red and the Black. So many awesome Maiden songs to choose from. \m/ But to be fair, if I ever tried to list my favorite Metallica songs, it would be dominated with older material. So to each their own.

4) Paschendale
5) Blood Brothers
6) Ghost of the Navigator
