Best of the Beast was Iron Maiden's first best of album, released in 1996 in three formats: a 34 track vinyl, a 27 track CD and a 16 track CD. The vinyl edition is nowadays quite rare and has become a collector's item. The songlist is mainly Maiden's greatest hits and most well-known songs from 1980-1995, but it also comprises a few real goodies, like one new song (entitled Virus), and two songs from the band's 1979 demo tape The Soundhouse Tapes (Iron Maiden and Strange World, of which the latter one was previously unreleased).
