Finish This Sentence: Without Iron Maiden, Life Would...

Seriously. Do it. Finish this sentence: Without Iron Maiden, life would...


I say "Without Iron Maiden, life would largely be devoid of any quality modern Metal bands." Why? Because bands I love like Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot and Bullet for My Valentine all point to Iron Maiden as major influences. I listen to all three bands every single day. In fact, I do not think it would be humanly possible for me to make it through eight hours in a corporate cubicle without Slipknot. Seriously.

So, your turn. You finish the sentence. Here's some live Maiden to get you going. Thank Glam it's Friday!

without Maiden,life would.....be w/out one of the best bands in the world. US wise, their numbers don't hold up but the entire rest of the world, Maiden is probably the biggest selling metal band to date.
my favorite live band is Aerosmith but hands down the BEST LIVE SHOW I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE WAS MAIDEN!

...not be any different. I don't care for Iron Maiden. Never liked their music. Their album covers are cool, though.

Without Maiden, life would not exist.
They're one of the lynchpins in my every day existance, plus I wear their t-shirts about once a week.
Maiden are HUGE in Britain, when i went to see Airbourne, about half the people at the gig wore maiden shirts.

I see a fair few maiden shirts just walking around town aswell, and I live in a very small town.

Without Iron maiden life would go on just fine. frankly, although I have tremendous respect for Maiden's talent and accomplishments, what did they really do that was so musically different from anything that Judas Priest had already been doing for several years?

If life without Maiden meant no Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot or Bullet for My Valentine it'd be a sacrifice I'd be willing to make. :-)

without Iron Maiden, metal would NOT have evolved the same. you can't get rid of some of the best's artist's influences and think everything would be the same!!!

To all the pricks that are bashing Maiden:

Without Iron Maiden, life (and music) would suck.

That is all, no debate.

Without Iron Maiden, hottopic would be void of the best metal t-shirts. LIFE would be fine, but I don't care who ya are...if you listen to rock music no matter your feelings for Maiden's music, you know you owned at least ONE Eddie adorned shirt.

Never owned an Iron Maiden anything. I didn't want to promote a band I didn't think was any good. Iron Maiden...next!

without one of the greatest rock influences the metal world has ever seen. Show me another band that has Maidens staying power 30 years later with the same quality as they do. There are none ! Maiden Rules !!! Up the Irons !!!
