I agree with all of this. That fucking chorus gave it all the radio play when The Number of the Beast would be a much better legacy for Iron Maiden to give to classic rock radio. And yeah, RTTH...just isn't a good song. The riff is bad, the chorus is annoying, it has the most stereotypical "Maiden gallop" ever without being interesting...worst song on NOTB, one of the worst of their Golden Era.

Worst Maiden song though? The Assassin.
Mortals are mortar and life is the fuse.
