A Real Dead One is a live album by the British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, recorded in 1992/93 at concerts across Europe, and released on October 25, 1993. This album features songs from the very beginning of the band's career (1975) through the Powerslave era (1984), while counterpart A Real Live One only contains songs from the post-Powerslave albums.
When Iron Maiden re-released all their albums in 1998, this album was combined with A Real Live One to form the 2-disc A Real Live Dead One.
The album cover was made by longtime Iron Maiden cover artist Derek Riggs, and depicts Eddie as a disc jockey in Hell, playing old Maiden tunes.
"Hallowed Be Thy Name" was released as a live single. On the Billboard Music Charts, "Hallowed Be Thy Name" hit number 50 on the Mainstream Rock chart.
