Last one for today (and hopefully a while). They make it a .6 not just for the "ha ha 666" joke but because, according to them, the beginning of "Afraid to Shoot Strangers" isn't as good as the rest and is therefore not counted. How come I never thought of that? I could just discount the parts of songs I don't like and feel a lot better about the whole list (The Top 49 and 2/3 Kanye West Songs, discounting the conspiracy bullshit in "Dark Fantasy" and that awful Klondike rhyme in "Stronger"). Also, another metal magazine (I think Metal Hammer again? I'm not sure) ran a top 50 Iron Maiden songs list that I saw at the bookstore, but sadly that one involved users in addition to critics, musicians, and Iron Maiden members, so it doesn't count.
