Iron Maiden Flies To U.K. Chart Summit With ‘The Final Frontier’
August 23, 2010
British rock perennials Iron Maiden extended their run of U.K. No. 1 albums to 28 years, and their overall album chart span to 30 years, with “The Final Frontier” (EMI).
“The Final Frontier” is Iron Maiden’s fourth U.K. No. 1 album, a sequence that began in 1982 with “The Number of the Beast.” The band also hit the top with “Seventh Son of a Seventh Son” in 1988 and “Fear of the Dark” four years later. The new set, the band’s 15th studio album, follows 2006’s “A Matter of Life and Death,” which debuted at No. 4.

In related news, Iron Maiden partied at a bar in Norway the other night and their $3275 bar tab receipt has made its way onto the internet. Who knew that Iron Maiden sucked on more slippery nipples than Gerard Butler at one of his pool parties? Not I.
So there you go, now you know what Iron Maiden drinks every night. It’s also safe to say that this is exactly what Amy Wino’s “happy hour for 1” receipt looks like.
