Best Avenged Sevenfold Songs

The Top Ten

1 Afterlife Afterlife

Just awesome
The worlds best song ever
This is definitely chuck norris's favourite song
If you don't like this song then you are definitely weird

The rev's voice is just sounds like an angel
Syn's guitar solo is like, GODDESS
Afterlife is an epic, breathtaking, song, that have so much variety in it.

I call synyster gates fans synners and I think I am voting for this one because me and my twin can play it on guitar. I really loved it when syn was kinda, um humming? Anyways, I say fizzledizzle, cherrybiscuits and holy ravioli and I love his singing voice!

This song is my second favorite. My favorite is Exist... I'mean not a very religious person. Also, I love space. However, this song will still always be in my memories of a7x.

2 Nightmare Nightmare

Great song

Actually, Fiction was Jimmy's last song. Sucks it's not on this list...

3 A Little Piece of Heaven A Little Piece of Heaven

This song has everything in it!
Made me have interested in Avenged Sevenfold!
Simply superb! DUMBSTRUCK! The vocalist has the perfect voice needed! Keep up the good work!

Avenged Sevenfold outdid themselves with this one it is far from practical and extremely unique, no other song from Avenged Sevenfold or any other band can compare on how unique it is, a masterpiece.

This song is so epic man, afterlife is okay... But This? Is so dark and violent! It's so fun to listen to and imagine the story! This is also one of jimmy's Best performance in any song I've heard. It totally deserve to be number 1

I gotta say... This is the best song I've heard from a7x. Sick vocals, it has this theatrical feel. It always keeps me scared and excited

4 Bat Country Bat Country

I love this song and I have to say this although it is not so related... This song have awesome drum cover by the rev and I think the rev is the most talented man in this band... His vocals are great! Good in keyboards/piano! Plays a little on guitar... And of course... 1 OF THE BEST DRUMMER IN THE WORLD! I love you jimmy

Their best song BY FAR! Kicks Afterlife in the nuts. Epic lyrics and great drums.

This song is absolutely amazing... IT'S REALLY catchy and got great Drums and Guitar Solos... As a Guitar player myself... I absolutely LOVE this song, and it's not only my favorite A7X song, but my favorite rock song of all time

There were only four songs I actively listened to and continuously thought about from time to time, as a kid. This was one of them. It always got me pumped up then, reaching about 12 years later now and it still gets me pumped up just the same.

5 So Far Away So Far Away

PERFECT SONG. I think the best songs are afterlife, daer god, nightmare, so far away, welcome to the family and buried alive.

I can't describe how beautiful this song is. I didn't realize it when I heard it for the first time. This song can make you cry, the solo can make you feel the sorrow reflected in the song. A7X is amazing. RIP Rev.

Il love this song. Avenged Sevenfold is my favorite band. They have so many good songs. Afterlife very deserving of first.

I taught myself how to play it on acoustic guitar, and It. Is. Awesome! It's beautifully written by Synester Gates, and it honours the original drummer, R.I.P Jimmy God bless you, A7X foREVer!

6 Beast and the Harlot Beast and the Harlot

First A7X song I heard and it was one of the greatest songs of the last decade - sharm7064

This song is putting a curse on me. I can never, ever stay still while blasting it in my room. The whole band proved their elite qualities, but for this song, M Shadows shined brightest. Syn and Zacky proved venomous with their harmony duos, Johnny's bass was melodious, and The Rev was world class as always.

Afterlife is awesome, but Beast and the Harlot is the best! I mean, everything about it is awesome.
Pretty much everything from City of Evil is awesome.

Just such a beautiful song, perfect guitar and drum solos. The lyrics and singing is amazing. Easily my favorite song because it brings jimmy's best drumming with double pedals.

7 Seize the Day Seize the Day

This song is just superb his song makes me cry every time I hear it the guitar solo is the best it just kills me this song has a great meaning hidden inside its just excellent
AVENGED SEVENFOLD ROCKS

C'mon this needs to be in the top three. In my opinion, the most beautiful song of a7x. This song is a pure ear candy. You just can't stop listening to it. Made me love a7x. - hanaan143

I <3 this song! It's so great. I wish there other songs sounded more like this. This is at the top of my favorite Avenged Sevenfold song list. I totally love it! It's so ' amazing.

I really like the music... It's so beautiful, every time me and my friends talked about them... This song always comes in the mind...

8 Critical Acclaim Critical Acclaim

Everything about this song rocks, especially how brutal this song starts, and the mysterious whispering put into it as well, truely an amazing song

I love A7X. This is definitely their best song. Listen to this before you vote for anything. Its not their most popular song but I think it's the best.

There's better songs by them but how is beast and the harlot and almost easy above critical acclaim? This song features Avenged Sevenfold sliding into progressive territory (which they do a lot but it's remarkably present in this song) and I love progressive rock/metal. It starts with the organ intro which evolves into the whole band, then it shifts into the really heavy 3/4 riff and when the time signature goes back to 4/4, Avenged Sevenfold's signature verses and choruses kick in. Perfect balance of both worlds. - fidelcanojr

Shhh be quiet you might piss somebody off...

One of the first A7X songs I heard, and I Instantly fell in love with it. It's heavy, crushing political banter in music form. From the Organ to the solo, this is one of A7X's best songs. Maybe not the best, but it's my favorite.

9 Almost Easy Almost Easy

this song is great
awesome intro followed by perfect riffs
one of the best songs of a7x
this really should be on the top five

This may be a little biased since this is the one that I listened to first, but this should definitely be in the top five. Almost easy and Afterlife are my two favorites so far!

The bridge is unbelievable. Unholy confessions is a really good song as well

Best ever song they ever recorded.

10 Unholy Confessions Unholy Confessions

I really love this song NO BAND WILL EVER BE ABLE TO TOP THIS SONG PAST OR PRESENT. it has EVERYTHING. sweet guitar (1st song I ever learned on guitar), amazing and versatile vocals. matt shadows out did corey taylor with his versatility in this song. it has the best of every world. starts of with metalcore sound then switches to hard rock then metalcore then soft rock. matt shadows is the greatest

This song and bat country and a little piece of heaven are my epic selection! unholy confessions make A7X look like gods!

Well afterlife is good and so is nightmare and seize the day but this song has got me hooked like no other. Just listened to it for the 1000th time and I'm not yet sick of it! Little piece of heaven is not that good. It shouldn't be on the list. - hanaan143

One of the greatest song of the world...

The Contenders

11 Buried Alive Buried Alive

I really do love all their songs but this one tops the list... Its just way too good... I think that the riff is amazing, intro is perfect and the vocals and insane.. And the switch in the style towards the end just typifies the bands amazing versatility.

this song should absolutely be in top ten the ending is just amazing love the whole song

song which made me listen to this band. should definitely have been in top 10

The way it builds from the soft beginning to the aggressive ending made me listen to this band.

12 Save Me Save Me

This is the song Jimmy called his masterpiece, and it truly is a masterpiece. It has deep, emotional lyrics, an incredible double-bass beat, one of the best solos Syn ever created next to Afterlife, and the most powerful ending to any album they've ever created. And it's ranked 17? You guys should really appreciate this song more. Shadows, Zacky and Syn all said in an interview it was their favorite song on Nightmare and that it when through tons and tons of work.

How is this not number 1? Greatest a7x song by far the intro is the best ever and about 446 in till 7 minutes in is the best solo ever! And the vocals are so meaningful.2nd greatest song behind disturbed the night

You people are crazy this is the best of Avenged Sevenfold! Full of incredible vocals, the solo is insane, and the drums are awesome, to me by far this is the best song from them.

I'm surprised this isn't #1, heavily underrated. The use of the intruments in this is nothing I've ever seen, the lyrics tell a great tale, and it's 11 MINUTES LONG.

13 Second Heartbeat Second Heartbeat

... what this song is the awesomely awesome song of the awesomeness of awesome songs ( that didn't make any sense)... but I love this song ( not as much as nightmare) but its like my num. 2 and I think it should be like TOP! The solo is INSANE! A7X is my clan tag on Call of Duty

Cool! U have to listen to it while looking to its lyrics in order to like it - redbluedeath

BEST SONG I'VE EVER HEARD! How is this song in this position?!?!? I personally like their performance in LBC but what?!?!? This song is awesomely underrated, anyway the drumming in this song is amazing live when the rev played it

Thins song is what brought them fame. The dualing guitar was spot on, and the solo was simply breathtaking. Shadows vocals were able to keep up with it all as well.

14 Dear God Dear God

Top 5 at least along with so far away needs to be bumped up a lot...

This one is EPIC! Don't go by ratings here..! This is one of the BEST ever.! Th

"I love this song completely. It helped me get over a break-up and its become my go to song in a rough time. "

Though not the best of A7X, I'm voting for this because I feel it Should be higher up. The end solo is so epic it gives me goosebumps even after listening to it a thousand times.

15 Welcome to the Family Welcome to the Family

What... The... Heck! This song should totally be in the top 3! A7X is one of those bands where you can't choose a favorite, but they have awesome songs!
R.I.P REV... May God richly bless you!

-Sincerely, Hitman Sevenfold

I can think of only one reason why this song is here but not in 1st place, because the drum beats were not done by the Rev, it's noticeably simpler than Rev's beats

The drums at the beginning... MINDBLOWING... Love the entire song...

This song is amazing! I love how it just gets stuck in your head! A7X foREVer!

16 M.I.A. M.I.A.

This song should be number one on the list... It's so good m shadows himself cried live

Such an amazing song not in the top 10. I'm sure this song should in first place Unbelievable my god. This is litarally the best song I've heard in my life

Amazing song reminds me of welcome home by coheed and cambria

Deserves second spot after little piece of heaven.

17 Hail to the King Hail to the King

This song is insane! Gets me hype every time I hear it! Amazing guitar solo! BEST A7X song to date! HAIL TO THE KING!

Love this intro, the chorus is super catchy, the solo is mind blowing and I've gotta say, Arin didn't do a bad job as The Revs replacement. This song is getting my hopes up and destroyed my fears that they were gonna screw up this album as many other bands are doing with their newest cds (Linkin Park). Can't wait for them to release the cd! - Danielsun182

It's pretty good. Every time A7X brings another type of music.
This time they have decided to go back to the classic metal

The best song by avenged sevenfold

18 Chapter Four Chapter Four

You hardly ever hear this song. You hardly ever hear a song this great. This song has some of the most impossible drumming that I have ever seen! The intro was amazing. And it being a verse from the bible too? Avenged Sevenfold really knows how to make a great song.

This song blew my mind when I heard it. The story telling, the riffs, the drums are all top notch. "Then the LORD said to him, 'Not so! If any one slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold. '"

this song should be in the top5. so much going on in this song, great vocal screaming and in this song jimmy proves he's the best drummer

A7X's Chapter 4 (DEMO) is really better than Chapter 4 (what)

19 I Won't See You Tonight I Won't See You Tonight

this song has SO much meaning. it was played at my cousins funeral..

when I'm desperate I always listen to this song, and makes me cry like a baby, yeah so silly but I'm talking about a great song, not a fast song, well okay afterlife and nightmare are great but this song deserve on #3 yeah, and maybe if we listen to waking the fallen album twice a maybe this song can beat nightmare, that's it

This should obviously be number one, any one who listens to old A7x not their new stuff knows what they're talking about

This song has so much meaning and such beautiful melodies it is a shame that this in number 13.

Hope Justin Sane is doing alright (this is about him, not the Rev).

20 Scream Scream

dude this song is amazing, idk why its not top 5

How in the hell is this not at least top ten... So catchy and dark, honestly my favorite Avenged Sevenfold song

Honestly, this is my favorite one of their songs. The lyrics and the way that the background accentuates them really flow together well. It's completely amazing and I was shocked that it wasn't in the top ten comments.

Scream is a good song I listen to it all the time this should be at least top 5
