Run To The Hills: Kids Listen To Iron Maiden For The First Time And Get Really, Really Into it

June 21, 2017

In the past, the good folks from the REACT channel on YouTube have introduced kids to some serioulsy incredible bandsMetallicaAC/DCNirvanaRed Hot Chili Peppers, and Guns N' Roses to be exact.

So what legendary band will they be listening to next? Why, British metal gods Iron Maiden of course!

Children, ages 7 to 12, sat down and listened to some of Iron Maiden's greatest hits like "Run To The Hills," "The Number Of The Beast," "The Trooper," "Aces High," "Wasted Years," "Fear of the Dark," and “Hallowed Be Thy Name," and gave their honest first impressions about the band. Some were in love with the level of skill from their drums and guitar playing, as well as Bruce Dickinson's voice, with one kid asking if the lead singer was a woman. 

Some of the kids had good things to say about Iron Maiden. Some other kids weren't really feeling it. Others just weren't born to be metalheads. When shown variations of the band's mascot, Eddie, the kids were quick to see the connection between him and the band's music.

Watch all of their reactions below!
