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."
