Over their 41 years together, Leyton heavy metallers Iron Maiden have done a hell of a lot. They’ve released a whopping 38 studio albums, won countless awards and entertained to an unimaginable number of people across the world at their own gigs and festival shows. They’ve influenced generations of other musicians, some of whom have gone on to form other world-renowned acts such as Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold, Slipknot, Slayer and more. They’ve been referenced in songs as diverse as Wheatus’ ‘Teenage Dirtbag’ and Aqua’s ‘Back To The ‘80s’.
All that achieving means their loyal and obsessive fans have got a whole load of information and trivia to keep stored in their brains. To test just how much you know (or can remember) about the hard-rocking legends, we’ve devised the devilishy tough quiz below that will sort from the true fans from the pretenders. Give it your best shot below and then either celebrate or console yourself by picking up Priority Tickets for the group’s arena tour, which has just been announced to take place next year. Good luck!
