Receiving their namesake from a medieval torture device, Iron Maiden has become one of the most popular heavy metal bands of all time. Consisting of bassist and songwriter Steve Harris, Dave Murray, Adrian Smith, Bruce Dickinson, Nicko McBrain and Janick Gers they've made made their mark on music history in more ways than just one.
