Iron Maiden. Better than The Beatles – Fact!

In a proud triumph for British Heavy Metal bands, social networking and ballot stuffing campaigns everywhere, Iron Maiden’sIron Maiden’s 1982 metal opus “The Number of the Beast has been announced as the Best British Album of the last 60 years in the results of an HMV poll designed to flog back catalogue albums celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Somewhere, the normally Divinely appointed recipient of these honours, Brit crooner and Emperor of Naff God-Fearing Pop Piffle Cliff Richard is composing a very sharply worded rebuke to somebody who gives a toss (clue: not your humble correspondent).  Face it Cliff, your ancient fan base just can’t figure out how to get online and rig these contests – deal with it, oldsters…

Whilst I would normally treat such things with the disdain that they arguably deserve, it is rather nice to see Iron Maiden’s fans being so active and doing such a bang-up job of getting their band to the top of such a visible list.

Metal Mavens Maiden Maul Malevolent MOR Morons Massively, Mate.

Better yet, let’s all be joined in delight that it wasn’t effing Mumford and Sons or sodding Adele topping this chart – huzzah for long-lasting hairy metallizers!
