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 25 October 1993. This album features songs from the very beginning of the band's career (1975) through the Powerslave era (1984) (hence the title, referring to the songs being old), while counterpart A Real Live One only contains songs from the post-Powerslave albums.

A Real Dead One served as Dickinson’s Iron Maiden swan song, for the time being. And the band faced the daunting task of replacing him. The album is also notable for being the last time an illustration by artist Derek Riggs was used as an album cover. Well, he did play a minor role in the creation of the artwork for 2000’s comeback album Brave New World, but the 1993 live records was the last time proper Derek Riggs paintings were employed for album front covers.
