Iron Maiden has been melting faces with powerful melodic heavy metal since 1975. Though they occasionally switch out members, they always hold true to their classic sound. In 1986, the band performed on a German television program, giving them the perfect opportunity to show off their incredible live show. There was just one problem; the show wanted them to lip synch. Vocalist Bruce Dickinson wasn’t the only one asked to mime. The whole band had to fake playing.
Iron Maiden agreed, but when the band started “playing” it quickly became apparent that no one should ever ask them to lip synch again. Sit back and enjoy this hysterical “performance” of “Wasted Years.” And remember, no one asks Iron Maiden to lip synch and gets away with it.
