The Top Ten

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!
[Newest]In the top ten Airbourne songs list, I said that it was what made me play NHL 09. Well this is another song that made me play the game. Good song, and in general, NHL 09 had the best soundtrack of all time.

great song
everyone must listen to this song
this song was one of the last the rev made,
Actually, Fiction was Jimmy's last song. Sucks it's not on this list...
This is the wake up alarm on my ipod :D nearly couldn't decide between this and afterlife
This is the best metal song of the decade. I love it to pieces. This is the first A7X song I ever heard. I will admit that afterlife and a little piece of heaven are incredible, but this is the best song ever. Here's my list. 1. Nightmare 2. A little Piece of Heaven 3. Bat Country 4. Afterlife 5. So Far Away 6. Beast and the Harlot 7. Unholy Confessions 8. Second Heartbeat 9. Critical Acclaim 10. Almost Easy. I am now a huge fan of A7X. My favorite bands are Slipknot A7X System of a Down and Korn. Metal foREVer

3A 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! Its 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
[Newest]This is the most badass song ever

4So 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.
[Newest]Really really love this song.

5Bat 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
[Newest]I love this song! This is what got me into Avenged Sevenfold

6Seize 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
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.


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 freakin' amazing.
[Newest]I love a lot of songs, I can honestly say, this song is my favorite song ever written. It means so much to me <3 it paints the perfect picture of a hard time in my life and listening to it now gives me goosebumps

7Beast and the Harlot
First A7X song I heard and it was one of the greatest songs of the last decade


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.
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.
[Newest]Amazing song, by far one of their best.

8Critical 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
How can I say... It's brilliant song ~ Love the Rev's voice...
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 its the best.
[Newest]Love statement this song makes and overall sound

9Dear 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. "
[Newest]I like it, I am fans from Indonesia

10Almost 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 faves so far!
The bridge is unbelievable. Unholy confessions is a really good song as well
[Newest]This should be number 1

The Contenders

11Save 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.
[Newest]How come this be in number 11? This is one of the masterpieces by a7x... The melody of this song gives me chills... I place it next to afterlife...

12Unholy 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.


[Newest]This song is simply perfect and fun to play on guitar

13Buried 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
[Newest]This song should be top 5. Starts out nice and slow but then turns into a bad-ass fast song. 2nd favorite song by them, just behind Afterlife.

14Welcome 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...
[Newest]Buried alive, fiction, and welcome to the family are the three best songs of nightmare album.

15Second 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


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
[Newest]Melodic. Meaningful. Solos. Punishment sent. Epic.

This song should be number one on the list... Its 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
[Newest]What a great way to end City Of Evil. I think this song is 10 times better than Afterlife.

17I 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.
[Newest]Simply amazing. The live version in Ventura gives me chills listening to it, especially given how powerful, raw, and genuine the vocal melodies are. Has been and will always be the only song I have gotten such an emotional response from hearing!

18Hail 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!


It's pretty good. Every time A7X brings another type of music.
This time they have decided to go back to the classic metal
[Newest]Way better than I won't see you tonight...

19Chapter 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 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
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. '"
[Newest]Definitely should be in the top5!

Hey! Its the best soft song I've ever heard... Needs to be among the top songs... This song is magnificent..
Favorite song by A7x by FAR! Fell in love with it as soon as I heard it. It's just amazing! I can't believe it's not even top 10. I literally listen to this everyday. It touches my heart and I just completely love it<3
My top ten list:
10. Seize the Day
9. Brompton Cocktail
8. Betrayed
7. Welcome to the Family
6. A Little Piece of Heaven
5. Lost
4. Buried Alive
2. Save Me
1. Gunslinger!
I thank A7x because they have helped me through hard times through their music. They basically changed my life and have helped me be comfortable with myself. I <3 A7x!
Its the best.. I just love listening to it and I never get tired of it..
Its Awesome.. The worlds best song ever... This song blew my mind when I heard it..
[Newest]It should be in the top 10. I can't seem to comprehend why it isn't.

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
In my opinion it must easily take 1 of the top 5 positions! Epic chorus and an epic build up!
[Newest]The best song to have as an alarm tone...

22Danger Line
Have to listen to it! One of the coolest songs I've heard
What, this must be higher, this song is really ass kicker to the 2-and chorus and after it turns in very sad song and whistling at the end, that makes this song unique, SO GET THIS ABOVE
Best song... No words.. People I kept listening to it for weeks... I am damn you 'll get addicted to it... Its a heaven from "I KNOW WHAT you THINKIN I'V BEEN THERE BEFORE"... Still keeps buzzing in my mind... Please vote for it
[Newest]This song Is Awesome.. Should be in top 5

23Blinded In Chains
Awesome guitar
Awesome drumming
Awesome lyrics
Awesomely sung
And awesomely UNRATED, listen to it for once m sure yo wont be dissapointed
What the hell
This should be in their top 8
It's amazing
Jimmy the rev rocks man
Rip in jimmy
This is the most underrated song by these guys. Its an awesome song, one of their best.


[Newest]Wow. Listen to this once and you'll know what I feel

This song means the world to me and the fact that this is the revs last masterpiece as well just makes it that more emotional! FoREVer
So touching, best piece of music the rev has written. A7X foREVer
Nightmare no.2?! It's incredibly commercialized, along with most the songs in the top ten... People need to get off there ass and listen to the rest of sevenfold's music.
I've been with a7x since they started out, and I can honestly say this song is beautifully composed, and freakishly good.
People need to learn that the best songs aren't always the single and video releases!
[Newest]One of their saddest yet best songs ever made. Also one of the most underrated. Every time I hear this song and hear the Rev's voice, I almost cry. It also gives me hope to move on when I lose someone.

25Shepherd of Fire
This song rocks. Black Ops 2 Zombies Just Went Perfect With It. Best Avenged Sevenfold Song Next to Afterlife. But personally I think A Little Pieces of Heaven is almost their masterpiece. This song is hard-core, insane, dangerously deep and dark, like a mid-evil ancient beast that has awoken and released it's rock heart. This song is epic. The guitar solo where it takes on the chorus's rhythm is awesome.


This song is awesome! Perfect way to open up the new album and it's a fantastic transition from Nightmare to the classic heavy metal A7X is bringing to the table in Hail to the King.
New song but I liked it at the very first moment I've listened it. All the instruments are connected in perfect harmony you feel the AX7 power since the beginning.
[Newest]Best for origins zombies, it's so kick a, such a good song.

26Brompton Cocktail
This is probably the most UNDERRATED song out of all of Avenged Sevenfold's songs, the lyrics are powerful, and the moment the instruments kick in, the whole thing just blows you away! I'm really surprised this didn't even make the top 20! Just listen to it, it'll seriously stick with you foREVer
This song deserved to be in TOP 10 in my opinion. Just a great song, with great groove and perfect, powerful voice. It's really hard to choose the TOP 10, cause this band has only TOP hits!
This is definitely one of avenged sevenfolds best songs. The first time I heard it, I couldn't stop. It was on replay over and over. I never got tired of it. ITS AMAZING!
[Newest]Great song. I can't believe it's this far down the line. It has great lyrics, great instrumental. I have to put this in the top 15.

27Not Ready to Die
Best song so far, should be in top 5 at least! Amazing solo and voices, great new song! Avenged's getting better
Should be a lot I mean a lot higher this song only number 24 not good enough should be number 9, 10 or 11 vote this song please really amazing song love it if you not sure then listen to it first then vote please this song rocks avenged sevenfold rock one of there best songs should be higher vote this one please should go see them live amazing band love them best rock band around today


The drumming on this thing is incredible, they really found an amazing replacement for The Rev
[Newest]I love everything about this song. The riff, vocals, piano, drums, everything! I can't get it out of my head how is this not at least top 5. This song deserves what it delivers. It's also awesome that I it's in one of my favorite games, 'Call of Duty'. Have fun and head bang at the same time! A7X foREVer!

28Strength of the World
This song has to be in the top 10.. amazing guitar solos towards middle to end.
This song has the sickest rifts imaginable. Why is it number 28 that's an abomination.
Best Avenged Song from the intro to the solos to the riff.
[Newest]Underestimated song. It's progressive, smooth, very vivid and extraordinary. I believe it's one of the best songs of CoE for sure, and it belongs to their "American twisted dream" style.

Best song on City of Evil by far, and it needs more recognition. Just because it doesn't have a music video and it's long doesn't mean it isn't great. I would recommend this song to any fan of A7X.
Why isn't this in the top 5? This is pretty much the best song of all time let alone best avenged sevenfold song - the acoustic guitar solo at the end just slays. I would say that this is their greatest song followed by save me, trashed and scattered, radiant eclipse and then M.I.A.
This is easily my favorite song of city of evil ( right in front of trashed and scattered and M.I. A) Even if you think the song deserves to be at the top, you have to admit it's easily one of the most memorable endings to a sevenfold song!
[Newest]The most underrated song ever... The acoustic solo is a masterpiece.

30Trashed and Scattered
This is my favorite song by them. I can't believe that it isn't in the top 10! Give it a listen! This song is catchy beyond belief. I find myself singing it everywhere that I am. The lyrics are badass as well. The harmony is awesome. The chorus is the BOMB!
How can this be so low down? This I probably one of my favorites along with wicked end and blinded in chains!
One of my favorites. Got me into Avenged, sick guitariing and vocals should be in top 10 at least!

[Newest]This song reaches without any problem my top ten. It's just so...INSANE!

31Coming Home
Off their new album "Hail To The King" Coming home in my opinion is very similar to "Afterlife" with the fast and high pitched guitar. But something about this song has more emotion to it which is why it is my new favorite Avenged Sevenfold song and why it deserves to be #1 foREVer.
This song is truly amazing, the guitar riff is on of the best I have ever heard, the chorus is catchy and overall this song is a true masterpiece, well done boys A7X 4 life
I Think This is a MASTERPIECE, this song is amazing, and some of the best guitar of any of their songs, ever. This song should definitely be #2, It is nearly as awesome as Afterlife, and better than even nightmare in my opinion!

My Top 5 List for this Band:
1. Afterlife
2. Coming Home
3. Almost Easy
4. Heretic
5. A Little Piece of Heaven/Shepherd of Fire (I Can't Decide between these two)
Sorry Nightmare, You're just not as good as some of these in my opinion.
[Newest]This song should be in top 5 list! Good guitar solo!

The lyrics are too sad. I wonder why this song hasn't received so many votes. Very deep song. One of the few that have ever brought me to tears.
We're all just victims over crime..

Always like that's!

Nothing can know what this lyrics, just the rev knowing that..
Victim is the song written with full of sadness. The first time I heard this song, I started to cry. A7x will rock foREVer
[Newest]Awesome song, how can this be ranked at 16, Top 10 for sure

The song is really good but the message that the song holds is even better. Its different from the other A7X songs, and that makes it special. You can hear it a million times and its still great...
This is really the most epic song I've ever heard. just listen to it give me spirit and the lyrics totally cool too! In the end of the song, you'll hear the melody that syn plays flowing through your ear like never end.
Definitely one of the song that will make you want to play again and again
Just heard this song for the first time and I have to say it has a great vibe to it which keeps making me want to listen to it over and over again, this is what a great memorable song has that keeps us interested.
[Newest]WHAT? 33? Are you kidding me? My faith in humanity is lost.

34Carry On
Legendary song it may lack The Rev (unfortunately, he will be missed D':) but as soon as I started listening to this song I didn't stop for 3 hours.
What a song! Get's me every time I hear it! Simply blistering
This song deserves place in top 5. Simply addictive.
[Newest]This song should be number 1 on the list.

35Natural Born Killer
This is my favourite song on their new album (and I love the whole album! I can't stop playing it on my iPod playlist! ) and the drum beats in the whole song are just so full of energy. When I listen to this song my adrenaline levels always skyrocket! And just the way it's so thought out.
It's definitely one of the best on Nightmare along God Hates Us.
Definitely my fave song of nightmare I just got the album and I can't stop listening to this song


Why is this not up in the top ten? I mean, seriously! This is just one of those songs that you have to sing the chorus with them. I find myself singing it at random times throughout the day... I have to listen to it at least twice a day. It might not have to be in the top ten, but 35? Seriously? Come on guys!
[Newest]This should be higher up-it is an amazing song

36The Wicked End
It's simply their best song. It has everything, a catchy chorus, a great bass intro, a killer guitar solo and awesome lyrics
It's just amazing. Every single time I'm listening to it I feel like I'm living in another world. Great! Always I'm feeling goose-flesh... And the message of this song is so true and near to everyone. This slow moment.. I can't describe. You just have to listen and, what's more important, to feel it! ♥
Not surprised this is all the way down here - is pretty well underrated. It is such a great song though, one of the stand-outs from City of Evil in my opinion, notably for its creativity, the great riffs, duels, and the epic solo. Love love love!

37This Means War
Very good song! The new version of sad but true. The best song of the album and maybe the best avenged sevenfold song ever
Every one who love this song can probably create a song
Probably the heaviest song off the album along with Planets. These are the 2 best songs off the album. Both should be in top 10!
[Newest]What the heck is this song doing in 39! Should be at least in the top 5

38Burn It Down
This is top 10 material.. This song is fantastic anything from city of evil deserves to be within the top 20 this is an outrage and I will not stand by and watch people ruin this top list!
This song is so underrated best vocals out of any song on city of evil by far
Just listen to these harmonys on guitar! But vocal track is definitely the best thing here!
[Newest]My favorite Avenged sevenfold song, the songs in the top ten are good too, but this definitely deserves a place there

I understand why this isn't on top, it took me awhile to listen to this album, but it's their best, and I have 64 a7x songs on my iPod. The mainstream get top, but waking the fallen was the best album by them.
All the best songs they have are on the bottom of this list. Too many of their mainstream songs get all the appreciation. This song has been my favorite song by them since I first heard it and if you can't find the brilliant meaning in it then you are not a true fan.
Just like another person said, it took me awhile to listen to Waking the Fallen and actually enjoy it, but when I did I learned that it was by far the best album Avenged Sevenfold has ever produced. It's truly a masterpiece and honestly I cannot rank any one song on this album above the other, I have listened to them all about 30 times.

40Warmness On the Soul
Great vocal melody, easily the best off the first album. all in all just a great sounding song with a wicked guitar solo. should definitely be bumped up a few spots from no.27
should be at least below 20! the piano its so amazing!
This is mine and my baby's song I love him so much and I love this song. I love listening to it. It reminds me of him This song should be top 5. NOT number 30! I think that needs to be chaged!
[Newest]My husband and I love this song, it was our wedding song! The lyrics are beautiful and the vocals and piano are amazing!

41Lost It All
This is probably my favorite song they've ever done, right next to 4 A.M. and Fiction. It has a catchy guitar part, a good speed, and the message is so potent, I'm surprised it is not higher. I will admit it s not top-ten material, but this does not get the credit it deserves.
I have to say all of a7xs songs are awesome but this song should be at least around 20 I love this song and I think its one of their best

42Unbound (The Wild Ride)
This song is seriously very underrated in my opinion. The piano is awesome and also the ending with the kids singing it.
not my favorite but should be on the list


This song is so catchy! It's sad how underrated it is though, it has fantastic sweeping and an awesome piano part. This isn't their best song but it completely deserves to be in the top five!


[Newest]This song got me through the worst time at my disabled sons's side in the hospital for weeks. He'll stay Unbound!

Best song on the album! Deserves to be higher!
This is the perfect mix between their old stuff, and their new stuff. It's simple, but catchy!


OMGoodness! Such an Epic song this is! Impeccable lyrics that just moves along with accurate riffs & Guitar solos. ahh in love with the song. Loving the Riff that follows the line " Rising masses, marching to find "Heretic Blood..." m/ This song & album made me an Avid A7x fan instantly. Album Title track Hail to the king is also simply amazing.

Such an underrated song, defiantly deserves some more attention. I own most of their albums and I can easily say this is one of my favorites,

this should be definitely in top 8 trust me I know every single a7x song and I am pretty much an a7x freak this song and MIA and definitely trashed and scattered
I've played guitar for 7 years and this songs guitar and lyrics really peak my interest, surprised its not higher on the list
[Newest]My favorite a7x song in the world. So amazing and so underrated

This is a great song about God creating the universe! How else can I explain this song? I can't. foREVer
This song is a raw laserbeam of power that burst into you like an epic sonic boom. Zacky and Syns guitars are quite dominant in this song and the solo is fantastic. I think is the best song on Hail to the King and I am one of those that like all the songs on the record.
I would say just because the list was made beforre Hail to the king, the album was released, this song is so down here.. Even the A7x members said that Planets and Acid Rain are two of the best songs of A7x
[Newest]Great song about god creating the universe! What else can I say about this song? Nothing. foREVer.

46Desecrate Through Reverance
M Shadows' best work vocally during this era. His screams were ridiculously high and his choruses are very melodic here. Too bad they never played this song live. This song takes a lot of vocal endurance and does not need a solo to be awesome. A7X chose a different path when writing this one and did very well. How sick is that breakdown when he screams "Don't ask! You'll never know! "? Definitely. Top 5 right here.
Wow, 51? I almost can't believe that this is where it is and dear god almost cracked the top 10. Shows the true a7x fans and the fans of their sellout songs. This has to be one of his best vocal performances and not to mention he can scream with such enthusiasm and antiquity, it almost gives me goosebumps.
I love Shadow's scream voice in this song, and this song can't make me bored..
Must be higher than this position! !
[Newest]The Rev screams amazing here, not like at Critical Acclaim when he sounds weak. But this song is lack of Shadow's song


47God Hates Us
The drumming in this song is so awesome and the guitar solo is amazing to. It should definitely be top 5
come on!

This song deserves to be in top ten! Matt has screamed again in this one!


Amazing! Loved matt's vocals and the guitar solo!


[Newest]The screaming is badass, this song should be top 5

48Until the End
Ho my gosh, this song is amazing. The piano in the verses is outstanding, the chorus, all of it! It's so underrated, it really should be higher on the list.
This song gave me that deja-vu feeling the first time I heard it. The lyrics are some of the best that Avenged Sevenfold have ever written. The intro is perfect. The chorus is what makes it a classic though. How this song made it onto a b-sides, covers and remixes album we'll never know.
Definitely has to be my favorite song by them. I own every album by them except seventh trumpet and this song, along with A little piece in heaven and unbound (the wild ride), has to be in my top 5. Most likely #1.
[Newest]This song is currently my favorite song. I love avenged sevenfold

49St. James
Awesome song about the legend himself. A happy version of so far away if you will.
Great song about the Rev
Awesome tribute to jimmy the rev Sullivan, deserves to be near the top
[Newest]This really is the song that reminds me of the Rev the most. It would be a lot higher if it was actually on the album.

50Dancing Dead
Amazing song, kinda simple but so catchy
How come dancing dead isn't in the top 10?
Simple and really catchy top ten kick ass solo and beat
[Newest]63? What? This is, in my opinion a top 10 song.

A great song, check it out people!
Should be at least top 20 everythings great, guitar lyrics drums. No, seriously, check it out.
Such an underrated song, its amazing

52And All Things Will End
This song kicks the most ass ever. I've never heard a more under rated, yet epic song ever. And it perfectly manages the shifts between mellow and hardcore. And has my favorite a7x lyrics ever: "I have seen my world crumble and fall before my eyes, I know, I know... Dark will turn to light... In time I'll be all right. I know... I know. "
Ok I can't believe how underrated this song is. Best song on waking the fallen but the outro of the song is absolutely the best thing I ever heard you have to listen to it, its unexplainable.
This song is so catchy laugh out loud, how is it all the way at the bottom? Has all the a7x qualities, great solo, nice length, catch chorus, and heavy riff... The only reason I can fathom that people haven't voted this song higher is because they haven't heard it..
[Newest]Better with each listening

This is a superb song with great drumming, vocal from jimmy and guitar is just killing this shouldn't be at this level this should have been more high
Wow. I love all of Avenged Sevenfold's songs. This one is possibly the best. The lyrics have both a powerful surface meaning and a deeper meaning that will stick with you for a lifetime. Matt did an excellent job on the vocals, and Jimmy was amazing on the drums and with his small vocal section as well. Zacky and Syn fill out the song with their crazy fast guitar and Johnny ties it all together with the bass. This song is just amazing, and is deserving of a spot at the top, not down at 52. A7x foREVer.
F**k off man... Whats this song doing at no. 40...?
Didn't the creep, who made all this, hear this song...
[Newest]This song is smart heavy and catchy I don't know why this isn't higher it deserves to be higher

54Crimson Day
Best Song on the New Album! Should easily be in the top 10! The solo is amazing and the Vocals are so touching!
I absolutely love this's great Please listen to it, you won't regret it
The best song in Hail To the King, it is just so powerful in its own unique way
[Newest]I do not have a favorite but I really believe this song should be ranked higher. The guitar solo is second only to November Rain on my all time list.

55Eternal Rest
For this song to be so low it just shows how much the typical avenged sevenfold fan knows about Metal music... Not much!
This song makes you feel a badass why the hell wasnt it in the list! The intro is insane, the main riff is meaty, simple and really catchy. Give it a listen
The riff. Enough said.

56Shattered By Broken Dreams
Simply epic. This song has everything! Shadows really shines in this one.
Perfect combination of screams and clean vocals. Doesn't get any better.
The most underlooked and underrated Avenged Sevenfold song. Such a beautiful sound and a song about friendship.

574:00 AM
This is the Most underrated song. I think it should be in the top twenty I don't know why it is way back at 57. A7X is awesome lets go
How is this not top 10? Amazing guitar
Very catchy guitar and vocals. Should be so much higher!
[Newest]Underrated by lack of exposure.

58Radiant Eclipse
Like these people said: this song is EXTREMELY underrated. The epic intro, into the "radiant" octaves, into the verse... And then when the verse goes into the 1st chorus, with the octave guitars, an orgasmic appeal is shown through this kickassery. How this all ends with the guitar solo, and incredible vocal arrangements, this is by far THE MOST UNDERRATED song of all Avenged Sevenfold. It should be in the top 10 in my honest opinion.
Criminally underrated. Excellent intro. Waking the fallen was their best album.
I agree too, This song is too underrated, While I didn't enjoy the album as much as say Nightmare but this song is top god damn notch. Excellent intro and it gets even better.
[Newest]My most favorite song ever. This song has the greatest chorus that was ever made in my opinion. Wish they would play it live though haha

59Girl I Know
Most underrated song by A7X. This song has everything from a strong beginning, to a catchy chorus, then to a crazy good solo. If this wasn't on the live in lbc album then this song would have been recognized as one of sevenfolds best songs
Should be higher, great song by a7x with powerful music and lyrics, this song is not much popular because this is not from studio album, like their song ˝Crossroads˝
This is a beat song, come on. Its really underrated! The lyrics are kinda weird but weird is cool.
[Newest]This is a really great song! I love everything of it, the chorus, the solo, the drum and also the lyrics! It is so catchy, it must be at least in top 20!

60The Art of Subconcious Illusion
This definitely needs to be at least in the top ten I mean come on really! This song rocks!
First song I heard from Avenged Sevenfold and I've been hooked ever since.

61Doing Time
Even though this song is pretty short it's very powerful. It paints me a picture of Mob of the Dead from Call of duty, my 3rd favorite song from Hail to the king, it goes Hail to the King, Crimson Day, Doing Time, and Acid Rain. The rest of the songs on that album were pretty forgettable, but Doing Time is definitely one to go back to
The reason this song was on 63th is because the album is new.
Deserves top ten. With requiem
This song remember me to the city of evil days...

The song is amazing, the lyrics all make sense, and the intro is really cool. The beat is really catchy as well.
Some of the revs best work! You gotta love the insane intro
This song is just too cool to be at #45 -.-

63The Fight
The album that this song is on is highly looked over. The Fight and Until the End are the two best songs on the Diamonds in the Rough album in my opinion. This song definitely deserves to be much higher on the list because it's just awesome.
This song is great I'm surprised there where no comments this song is pretty great
It took me a while before I listened to this song, I didn't think it would be very good. Then I heard it and I still can't get it out of my head, enough said already!

I might be being biased here, but whatever, I think this is a million times better than the original. Period.
This song better than paranoid black sabbath version!
Best cover of Black Sabbath ever...

I thought it was a great Pantera cover
I think that is better then the original, Jon
Dimebag needed a better guitar.

66Clairvoyant Disease
The simple fact that this song is not in the top 50 is a catastrophe.. Amazing lyrics and meaning, great melodies, and unbelievable emotion behind it all.. This song has everything, and judging by the rest of the list, I could probably guess that no one has heard this song, or it'd be a lot higher.. In my top 5.. However, the large majority of the voters seem like mainstream music lovers.. Anyone that gives this song a chance won't be disappointed
The fact that this song is ranked outside the top 50 proves that this list was made by mainstream music fans who listen to Avenged Sevenfold from time to time. Any true A7X fan respects the first two albums enough to know that songs like Clairvoyant Disease are masterpieces. My favorite song personally is Seize the Day, but Clairvoyant Disease is not far off. This song has absolutely everything you could ask for, and I would urge any music-lover to give it a chance.
Best song by them in my opinion has good singing and amazing guitar its the best song on that album by far now I can see how nightmare got higher and so far away but any other song being higher than this one would be plain garbage the meaning is amazing to its their best meaning in a song besides betrayed and so far away
[Newest]"There's nowhere to run and hide when you're living to die" I live by those lyrics, I have them engraved on my lighter even, best song ever

67Turn the Other Way
Best song. Most spontaneous drumming ever
R.I. P the rev

68Darkness Surrounding
This song has Jimmy's drum solo. 30 seconds of pleasure!
Why is this song so low on the list? One of the best songs by A7x. Rev's magical feet at it again.
This song is very brutal, worth to blow your ears

69An Epic of Time Wasted
Sounding The Seventh Trumpet is the forgotten album by the people who know A7X with (COE, S-T, Nightmare & HTTK) but this song is one of their best in their discography! Awesome bass line and amazing scream
A very epic song, the best song on Sounding the Seventh Trumpet (in my opinion)
Awesome song... Their album debut is very underrated...

70Lips of Deceit
Why you no higher? This is my favorite song off STST by far! Don't even know why, it's just so cool and catchy with awesome riffs. Worth a listen!

71Waking the Fallen

72We Come Out At Night

73Acid Rain
This song Is gonna be something Big I hope It dragged me in the first time I heard it I'm gonna be listening to this song a lot in the Future!


Definitely their most underrated song ever. This song is absolutely incredible, but nobody knows about it. This and danger line definitely need to been more well known. Just amazing
A great song for changing their sound
[Newest]One of there best songs

74Thick and Thin

75Forgotten Faces
Amazing song! My favorite of their first album... Very underrated...

76Sad But True

77I Won't See You Tonight, Pt. 2
Far from my favorite A7X song but it definitely shouldn't be in dead last on the list. It's got some really good guitar and screaming by M. Shadows. It's also pretty cool to listen to right after hearing part 1.
Far from by favorite sevenfold song, but I do like it a lot. It features some good screaming by M. Shadows and some good guitar. I also like how it's used in contrast with I Won't See You Tonight, Part 1. Definitely thought it should be added to the list for consideration.
WHAT THE HELL? 74? Who the hell voted for ugly songs from HTTK.. Avenged Sevenfold is Waking The Fallen..


Actually, Waking the Fallen is an album they did. So is Hail to the King. They're not going to staple themselves into one style. True fans would know this.

78Breaking Their Hold

79Mouth for War
Best performance at the 2012 Golden God Awards

80Bloody Twister

81Unwind the Chainsaw

82Tonight the World Dies
This is a great song. I really love the acoustic side of A7x, like So far away, Gunslinger, Mia, but this song is different, tires to say something. As a guitar player, I find a lot of feelings between the lyrics and the guitar.
This is the best AVENGED SEVENFOLD song EVER! Yeah Afterlife is Godlike but this song is as good as Metallica it has one of the greatest solos in the history of solos
[Newest]How is this song seriously 84th on this list. Top 10 at least. Good vocals, amazingly underrated song

Biggest underrated song because the intro sucks but the middle of the song is amazing and the solo is great. I would put it somewhere in the twenties maybe even a little higher.
I love the bass in this song, I am a drummer so I appreciate songs like tension, this is my ringtone
Why isn't this higher?

84Nothing to Say
I have nothing to say about this
This isn't an avenged song, it's slash with M. Shadows on vocals

85Flash of the Blade
Perfect song. I do not know why people do not consider this track to a better rating.
Check it out people, in order to get rankings
It's better than the original

86To End the Rapture
Can any body tell me why it isn't on top... That solo is blistering..2 lines of lyrics its awesome
Not their best song but its so underrated you have to vote for it. People would like if they heard it
Amazing guitar. Short song but should definitely be ranked higher. A7x!
[Newest]This is the worlds best heavy metal song ever

This is intense! I love the tune - the guitars, the starting in latin. However it does creep me out a bit haha :D I still love it!
How is this song so low down. This is a killer song. Easily top 20 if not top 10
I like this song because it is creepy. Love a7x
[Newest]This song IS good I don't know why people don't like it
