The cover was originally created for the song " Purgatory ", but Rod Smallwood deemed it of too high a calibre for a single release and decided to save it for The Number of the Beast album instead.
The album was also the centre of controversy, particularly in the United States, due to the lyrics of the title track and the cover art depicting Eddie controlling Satan like a puppet, while Satan is also controlling a smaller Eddie. Smallwood explains that the concept was to ask "who's the really evil one here? Who's manipulating who? The album's cover art has been parodied several times — by crossover thrash band Stormtroopers of Death for the cover art of their album Bigger than the Devil , and on a T-shirt by Streetwear brand Diamond Supply Co.
As they had written too much material, they had to choose between "Total Eclipse" and "Gangland" for the "Run to the Hills" B-side, with the understanding that the other song would appear on the album. I think if 'Total Eclipse' had been on the album instead of 'Gangland' it would have been far better.
We had just enough time to do what we did, and that was it. While the title track was considered by many religious groups in the United States as evidence that Iron Maiden were a Satanic band, the song was in fact inspired by a nightmare bassist Steve Harris had, triggered by watching the film Damien: Omen II late at night.
The closing song "Hallowed Be Thy Name" has remained in all but two of the band's setlists since the album's recording the only exceptions being the Maiden England World Tour —14, and the second leg of the Book of Souls World Tour in The band's manager, Rod Smallwood , had to telephone Patrick McGoohan to ask permission to use the audio clips for the song and was extremely hesitant during his conversation with whom Smallwood himself describes as "a real bona fide superstar actor".
A rock band, you say? Do it. According to Smith, Steve Harris remembered hearing the song at an Urchin concert in a local park, and modified it for The Number of the Beast album. The album was strongly opposed by social conservatives — especially in the United States, where Iron Maiden were accused of being Satanists. Public burnings of the band's catalogue were organised, although some religious groups smashed the records with hammers, for fear of inhaling fumes from burning vinyl.
They completely got the wrong end of the stick. They obviously hadn't read the lyrics. They just wanted to believe all that rubbish about us being Satanists. Since its release, the album has received consistent critical acclaim, with AllMusic describing it as "among the top five most essential heavy metal albums ever recorded.
A cornerstone of the genre. The Number of the Beast was a commercial success. The album reached the top ten in Austria and Sweden, and No.
The album reached No. It received a 3x platinum award in Canada for sales exceeding , units. Both songs entered the Irish Singles Chart in the same order, and reached No.
The performance was recorded and has been released through the band's YtseJam Records label. Several of the record's songs have been used in video games: "Run to the Hills" is featured in SSX On Tour as the opening theme,  Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City ,   and a cover version is included in Rock Band , the only song in the game listed as 'Impossible' for all instruments.
The album was reissued in with a bonus CD containing two songs "Total Eclipse", and a live version of "Remember Tomorrow" that had been the B-sides of the album's two singles.
