This might just be one of the greatest tunes written, period...
Show them no fear , show them no pain \m/
Agreed johnheater19 7 5 . F**k em if they don't like one of the greatest bands of all times..
All maiden is great!!! Don't give a s**t,who don't think so.
\m/ (-_-) \m/
This album saw the return of Dickerson and Smith.
This song is amazing!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
Regardless what Maiden does there still on of the greatest bands of all times!!!! If u guys only had a clue.
I love this song and one of my favorite maiden albums
Is it me or are there some typos in the lyrics and missing letters?
Maiden always sings about the history of war it seems like that to me
But they killed over 23,000 people
It's talk about the mercs who where in Africa I can't remember there name
They need to stop repeating, mostly the chorus still good solid maiden
perfect theme for the hunger games :>
They get better with age
Robert nelson-thoug h i agree that their older stuff rocks(1st time I saw them was with DiAnno), songs like Can I play still get my adrenaline rushing,as was this last tour.And it brings some of the younger metalheads into the fold...which is what its all about. Carry the torch.

3 albums later...?

Good music and good concept for the song, but like so many of their later songs that ring hollow with me (such as Can I Play With Madness and a few others on Seventh Son and so many of their later ventures), it's just too stinking repetitive. Forget fear, show me no more repetition!
this is awesome
Hmmm ..tryin to figure out what the difference is between iron maiden and JP is !

Maiden is the edge!!! Up The Irons!!!
...three albums later, still haven't lost the edge!!!
Proof that Maiden will never lose their edge! (as long as they stick with Dickinson on vocals anyway)
