"[...] most Heavy Metal bands won't admit it because they have some sort of tunnel-vision. They were influenced by 3-4 of our songs and they claim they know nothing of the rest of our compositions. However, Iron Maiden remain unique. On the other hand, I'm happy to know that Maiden have been an influence. I take it as a compliment."
– Steve Harris talking about Iron Maiden influencing other bands, March 1993.
