    Haha, that's awesome, even though the text was screwed up on my screen so I couldn't see all of it... still, awesome!

    Maiden's depiction of this epic WW2 aerial dogfight is so vivid, it's not hard for the listener to imagine what it was like putting those Vietnamese bastards in their place- especially if you take a huge bong hit right before the guitar solo!

    "'Run To The Hills' from The Number Of The Beast recounts the bloody battles between American Indians and the White Man in the 1800's. Mr. Bradley's lecture on the topic lacked Maiden's level of detail, not to mention a kick-ass Steve Harris bassline."

    Haha, that was great. Up the Irons!!!

    P.S. From that website, I learned what an iron maiden actually is. The lyrics make sense now! :)
  4. I started to laugh and then realized that that's pretty scary.

    The world according to Steve Harris! Oi!
  5. oh, and I thought I read somewhere, that 'Up the Irons' is actually a reference to weightlifting...which they didn't know at first?

    I do love their tunes. Seen 'em twice.

  7. Well, Maiden does sum up history pretty well.

    The omission of Eddie from the text amounts to dangerous revisionist history on the part of the publishers, who I assume are probably really big fags who listen to Warrant.

    Ooooh it hurts to laugh!
