Iron Maiden – The Wicker Man (from the album A Brave New World, 2000 EMI) Inspired by the 1973 British horror film of the same name, The Wicker Man was the first single from A Brave New World. This also marked the return of Bruce Dickinson and guitarist Adrian Smith to the band after leaving for a period of time. Great guitar work and a huge, catchy chorus (Your Time Will Come!) make this a Maiden classic. This song could have easily been from Number of the Beast era Iron Maiden.
Cool fact – Iron Maiden was nominated for the “best metal performance” Grammy in 2001, but lost out to the Deftones song “Elite”.
