5. Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast
With so many incredible renderings of their diabolical mascot Eddie, who was drawn by illustrator Derek Riggs, it’s hard to isolate which Iron Maiden shirt is the finest. Each illustration tells a sliver of a bigger story, putting Eddie in the future and past, where he’s both the protagonist and antagonist. One of their finest and most copied is Riggs’s drawing for the album The Number of the Beast, which was been parodied by the band S.O.D. and Diamond Supply Co., as it’s a great example of both a rad shirt and design that tells the story of the music itself.
