How To Play Die With Your Boots On By Iron Maiden

282

How To Play Die With Your Boots On from Iron Maiden’s Piece of Mind. It is the fourth studio album by Iron Maiden, originally released in 1983.

For Iron Maiden’s 1983 release Piece of Mind, the British metal group was in a very war-like mood, as three songs on the album dealt with this subject: “Where Eagles Dare,” “The Trooper” and “Die With Your Boots On.” It turns out that for the latter tune, Bruce Dickinson borrowed the title from an old book about a regiment of Scots Guards in World War II. Dickinson explained that the title had another meaning: “If you’re going to go for something, go for it,” he said. “That’s exactly the same attitude we have on stage and we have off stage — work hard and play hard.”
