    What is your favorite cover of a Maiden song?

    Though I don't listen to them much but I LOVE Avenged Sevenfold's version of "Flash of the Blade"!

    You?!?

    I have a big soft spot for Van Canto's version of Fear of the Dark

    ... and indeed Van Canto in general, although I recognise they're a bit... niche

    That was a really interesting cover! I've definitely never heard that one before.

    Completely unnecessary profanity aside, I've always been a fan of Cradle of Filth's cover of HALLOWED BE THY NAME... though that's a very bold song for a band to cover.

    I thought Chris Jericho did a pretty fine job with Fozzy on Maiden songs too, all things considered. They've done THE PRISONER, WHERE EAGLES DARE, THE EVIL THAT MEN DO, and, most recently, SUN AND STEEL. Far from perfect, mind you, but we have the originals for that.

    Interesting choices. The Fozzy Prisoner is actually pretty good, except the weird intro.

    Jennie, that was unique!

    Speaking of "Fear of the Dark", though the video isn't much to look at, these 2 KILL it on the cello & violin: https://youtu.be/aaN3IMWxfKc (May be a good primer to show someone how beautiful Maiden music really is).

    Van Canto do metal covers generally, and the only non-vocal instrument they have is a drummer; I love their version of Primo Victoria too

    I like the Cradle of Filth Hallowed too, and you're right, it's a brave band that takes that one on.

    Cradle have definitely never lacked much in the audacity department.

    What do you folks think about Metallica's cover of Remember Tomorrow? (CLICK HERE if you haven't heard it)

    It''s all right, but they don't really add anything to the original. For me, a cover has to be different enough to be worth listening to the cover over the original.

    I approve of that one. That's doing something VERY different from the original.
