The Top Ten

1
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!
[Newest]Amazing vocals! Amazing guitar! Amazing drums! I could keep saying amazing for hours this song is OP

foREVer
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

4Bat 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

5So 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]BEST song to this date by Avenged Sevenfold, this shows that they are not emo

6Beast and the Harlot
First A7X song I heard and it was one of the greatest songs of the last decade

sharm7064

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]Best guitar so far

7Critical 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


8Seize 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 freakin' amazing.
[Newest]Good and great song

9Almost 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

10Unholy 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]How can this not be in the top 5? I'm glad it's in the top ten but.. seriously? Nightmare before this?

The Contenders

11Buried 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.

12Save 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...

13Second 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.

14Dear 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]This song is so smooth, I can listen to it all day

15Welcome 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.

16M.I.A.
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.

17Chapter 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!

18I 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!

19Hail 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
[Newest]This is the song that got me into metal. It is the song that I will take to the grave.

20Scream
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...
