One of the first groups classified as "British metal," Iron Maiden has influenced such diverse genres as thrash metal, flamenco-metal, pop-punk and more. The band's album Number of the Beast is considered by many as one of the greatest rock recordings of all time. Though often ignored by U.S. media (critics cited the group's dark musical themes and use of grim mascot "Eddie" as proof of their Satanism), they gained worldwide popularity. Iron Maiden won the Ivor Novello Award for international achievement in 2000 and was inducted into Hollywood's RockWalk in 2005.
