My band is better than yours!

That’s what Bruce Dickinson thinks about his band Iron Maiden in comparison to Metallica.

In a recent interview with the UK’s Metal Hammer magazine, Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson discusses how the band have managed to stay on top, and how “Iron Maiden are better than Metallica.”

You’ve just got to have a sense of fearlessness,” says Bruce. “I got into trouble for saying that we’re better than Metallica… and, it’s true! They might be bigger than us and they might sell more tickets than us and they might get more gold-plated middle-class bourgeoisie turning up to their shows but they’re not Maiden. I did say it’s a bit of a wind-up. I thought, if I’m going to turn into an asshole, I might as well, you know, go for it!”

I can see Bruce is probably being a bit tongue-in-cheek and just trying to play the asshole (I know I love to too), but I have to agree with him. I love both bands, I really do respect both for what they’ve done for Metal, but Maiden are the superior band in my opinion. Now feel free to flame me.
