Since the first dude didn't add it in, I just wrote a little thing towards the bottom. =)

Why is the 1982 "Run to the Hills" single merged with the 1985 "Run to the Hills" single? For the sake of chronology can we keep seperate pages? In terms of the band's history both singles represent major turning points in their career and deserve seperate profiles.

Removed the "trivia" section[edit]

The Trooper is not a sequel to rob. Run to the Hills clearly talks about colonialism, and The Trooper is based on this poem, which talks about a battle of the Crimean War. Confusing Text 14:23, 31 January 2007 (UTC)

According to a recent conversation on the Buster Keaton IMDb page, the movie cut into the "run to the hills" video is not a Keaton film, but "Uncovered Wagons" by J A Howe. I haven't (yet) seen the movie myself, so I don't feel confident updating the page. Does anyone know the source of the claim that it is a Keaton movie? Subtilior 08:22, 3 February 2007 (UTC)

... or you could just change the thing, I guess... Subtilior 04:52, 5 February 2007 (UTC){{subst:image source|Image:2392.jpg)) Betacommand (talkcontribsBot) 22:43, 24 May 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Hills021.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Hills021.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 22:35, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Removal of a sentence about Buzzcocks[edit]

Removed the line saying that the intro drum solo was clipped from a Buzzcocks song on the basis that the source used was someone's geocity page listing personal opinions/reviews of music. The line is from a section reviewing a Buzzcocks album:

""Autonomy" (written solely by Diggle, who co-wrote two other songs as well) features a darker sound, with a drum intro that Iron Maiden may have clipped for their classic "Run To The Hills" (it sure sounds like it). "

It is clear that the author really has no way of verifying this to be the case and this information is only some random guy's opinion, not actual fact. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:15, 24 June 2008 (UTC)

Yeah I agree. It's not a real good source. (talk) 16:47, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

How do i add a video?[edit]

I have the run to the hills video and i was wondering how i could upload it to this page Shaunsomeone (talk) 15:14, 1 November 2008 (UTC)


Shouldn't there be something about what the song is about?? Niten (talk) 09:09, 21 March 2009 (UTC)


'The song, along with "The Trooper" was omitted from their current 2010 tour, The Final Frontier World Tour, in order to make room for their newer songs on the set list.' Whilst Run to the Hills was omitted from the Final Frontier World Tour, The Trooper was not, as it was played on the 5th August at the first of the two London events. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Petaarr (talkcontribs) 13:38, 6 August 2011 (UTC)


Hello fellow Maiden fans. Just saying that since I got into Wikipedia, which is only in the last few years, I've noticed a LOT of incorrect information, unfinished or half done information, grammatical & non-sequential information on these pages. With all serious due respect to the Original person/s who took the time consuming effort to write it in the first place, I've been slowly updating and "fixing" these issues. I have always used references for any of these issues that I may add and I don't as a rule change any of the write ups about the album/songs but I have added a line at the end just to reference the updated elements. This is not done out of some malicious self-important ego trip but out of a wish for people who read Wikipedia for a source of information to get the correct knowledge to start with, as unfortunately most of you would be aware of the bad rep it has as a source of information, even though I personally don't think its as bad as some people have said it is. Nor is it meant to be a "#$%@ you" to others who have written on them before me....
