Iron Maiden's 2 Minutes to Midnight 12" includes the album version of the title track, plus the Slade tune "Rainbow's Gold" and the hilarious backstage quibbling in "Mission From 'Arry," where the bandmates engage in a rather Spinal Tap-esque argument. The CD re-release appends those tracks with another cover (this time Nektar's "King of Twilight"), a live recording of "The Number of the Beast," and more silliness with "Listen With Nicko!, Pt. VI."
