First off, congrats are in order for Iron Maiden's 'Phantom of the Opera,' which just concluded its Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame run by defeating four other tracks from the year 1980 over the past month. With the Iron Maiden tune retired to the Hall of Fame, that makes room for two new competitors in the Classic Cage Match.
Congrats to Black Label Society's 'My Dying Time,' which is now a three-time winner in the Loudwire Cage Match competition. Zakk Wylde's cool, bluesy vibe seems to be connecting with music fans and the song just bested Black Stone Cherry's 'Me and Mary Jane' for its third victory in a row. But the challenge may be harder this go around.
Iron Maiden just chalked up their third victory in the Classic Cage Match. One more victory for 'Phantom of the Opera' and they will be entering the Classic Cage Match Hall of Fame. The song, which came from the band's self-titled debut and features original frontman Paul Di'Anno, has become a fan favorite over the years and managed to put up a significant victory over Diamond Head's 'Am I Evil?'
Iron Maiden have begun a run through 1980, as their song 'Phantom of the Opera' just concluded its second straight Classic Cage Match victory. The song, which came from the band's self-titled debut disc while Paul Di'Anno was still their frontman, bested the Ronnie James Dio-led Black Sabbath and their 1980 single 'Heaven and Hell.'
Iron Maiden have snapped Judas Priest's two-match Classic Cage Match win streak as the fans have voted 'Phantom of the Opera' the victor in he latest Classic Cage Match. The 1980 classic from the band's self-titled debut disc is filled with plenty of riffing and a frenetic drumbeat that's perfect to bang your head to. But does Maiden's 'Phantom of the Opera' have what it takes to continue their Classic Cage Match run?
Judas Priest have made it two-for-two in their Classic Cage Match competitions. The band's 1980 single, 'Breaking the Law,' just took out Ozzy Osbourne's 'Crazy Train' to see another Classic Cage Match day. The song, with its driving guitar and in-your-face Rob Halford vocals, has become a metal staple over the years and will now move on to face another standout track from 1980.
