  • It started as a rally call for their football squad consisting of members of the band and crew. Bruce ᗪıc̫ҡinson's tag line "Scream for me!" is used by many rockers now.

  • Its just a thing that Iron Maiden made up.

  • The term comes from 18th Century Naval War equipment/ammo which is two cannon balls connected by chains, shot from a cannon to demast a ship. The command is Up the Irons !!! Iron maiden made it cool !!!
