Iron Maiden did a metal cover of this song that was used as the B-side of their 1983 single "The Trooper
." Their rendition has since appeared on various compilations and reissues.
Regarding metal covers of Jethro Tull songs, Ian Anderson said
: "There are a lot of folks in the world of heavy metal and hard rock whose influences include Jethro Tull, but I think we have to put it in perspective that young Bruce Dickinson or other members of Iron Maiden growing up and as children hearing Jethro Tull, it made some impact on them and it made them consider that music amongst many other influences, in terms of what it could do for them. But, we've always got to remember that whenever somebody says, 'I grew up listening to your music,' just because they happen to be very successful in their own right as musicians today, it's a mistake to think you're their prime influence. What they're doing is tipping their hat and citing you but probably amongst 50 other influences that were important to them in their learning process."
