The Top Ten

Second Heartbeat
It is impossible to not tap your feet along to the double bass. This song pumps you up like no other
I love this song. I thing it is just amazingly done and I also suggest to listen to the demo version
It's long nice bass nice drums nice screams and a epic solo

2Blinded in Chains
This song is really underrated, not the best song of A7x, though it is a good song. How is afterlife underrated, and why are people voting afterlife in this list? God hates us and Dear god should go up the list Vote other songs bastards don't vote afterlife, nightmare, beast and the harlot and other songs that are popular
Second Heartbeat is great..
Man this song has got :
1. The best drum solo ever
2. The best bass solo ever
3. The best rhythm guitar work ever
4. The best lead guitar move ever
5. The best singing (incorporates singing, rapping, screaming).. That too very VIBRANT, faster, energetic ever...
Don't know why people love singles from this album..
Blinded in chains is (one of the) best song ever made in HISTORY!...
I really love this song, no idea why its underrated like this but still... love the vocals, cool drums (really like the intro) and guitars as well. Everything works great together!

On a side note... Why the hell is Afterlife on this list. You realize that is like their most popular song right?


[Newest]The start is a bit weird, but after that, it gets amazingly good.

Honestly city of evil is their best album. I love every single track on it, and still have not gotten bored of it. Waking the fallen, in my opinion, had too much screaming, and M.Shadows vocals are wasted on them. They are much better suited as a hard rock band. Sadly enough they are reverting back to their metal days with the release of hail to the king...i actually liked where they were going with Nightmare, unlike most people :(
Really meaningful lyrics. I mean, out of all the songs about war out there, this one is a dark look at the morality and lingering effects of war. Plus, not only are the vocals, drums, bass and guitars spot on, the solo is godly.
The Best song they ever wrote in my opinion great intro with great fade out with a fantastic solo from Synyster gates in the middle what more could you want
[Newest]To challenge this song, you must be STRONG

4I Won't See You Tonight, Pt. 1
Probably not their best song... But really, this song is really underrated, makes me wanna cry... And in my opinion this is the best song from "Waking the Fallen". Should have been at least 20 - 5 on the top ten list
This is easily their best song. The ending on this song is what makes it the best. This song probably has the best ending of any song ever on any song in any genre. The vocals and fade out in the last 2 minutes are actually insane. Not only the ending is great, but the message is also very powerful.
One of their best songs in my opinion. Looked on my ipod after about 7 months and it had something like 400 plays on it, absolute brilliant song with a lot of emotion

Probably, in my opinion, their best song. Even though the chorus is autotuned, the verses are all amazing M. Shadows sings so powerfully its almost unreal.
Great solo, great vocal, great bass, great drumming!
Shadows, Syn, Rev, Zacky, And Johnny christ did a great job in this song, well done guys
the beginning reminds me of Dragonforce, but its definitely one of the best ''unknown'' A7X song and it has a really good and catchy chorus, just love it
[Newest]Beautiful song that has a very happy vibe within it.

6Radiant Eclipse
Love this song, great opening and chorus. Read the lyrics with it to enjoy it to the very fullest. One of the best from Waking The Fallen.
This song is beast and obviosly pretty awesome
Whoa! This is an epic song! I was blown away when I heard this. And IT IS EXTREMELY UNDERRATED!

7We Come Out At Night
Definitely the most lesser known song
The song that got me hooked.

Sick drumming, creative guitar playing, poetic lyrics, and a unique chorus that ties the whole song together. This is not only my favorite lesser known Avenged Sevenfold song, but possibly my favorite of all time.
Absolutely love this song. The lyrics speak to me, and that's what I look for in a song. Should be better known, but the few who know it will agree that this song is breathtaking.
This song is just awesome, the sick as vocals of M. Shadows when he both screams and sings is just amazing. Definitely deserves to be in the real top 10. So underrated
[Newest]I pee my pants every time I whack off to this song

I don't even know why this song is on this list, it's probably there most known and popular song
I agree. This is the song that everybody knows. This is the song that many of my friends told me to listen to when I wanted to get into Avenged.
Why is this song included here? This is the best song ever.
Come on, who ever thinks this is a lesser known song has not listened to A7X
[Newest]This is a great song

10Dancing Dead
between this I like shattered by broken dreams.. in lyric side, I more like shattered by broken dreams, because it's like tell us at a7x that jimmy's left. but in music side, I like dancing dead, awesome


Out of all other great songs from a7x, this one is really simple and catchy! Can't stop listening to it from the first time heard it. Until now, probably one of my most favorite song to listen.
This song is amazing. Shads has a beautiful voice, amazing and catchy chorus, awesome riff, and a solo that will BLOW YOUR MIND!

The Contenders

11Turn the Other Way
Possibly the Best song from their first album. Even if the album is nowhere near the best overall, this song does deserve a listen

12Shattered By Broken Dreams
This song is the best it means a lot and generates a self explanatory image

13God Hates Us
Come on your insulting a7x and the fans... are you really a metal fan? If you don't like this song so you are not a r a roll fan
If you heard this song you heard the awesome guitar riff at the begining I mean pure gold!
The drums r beast

14Warmness on the Soul
By the way this is one of their most well known songs but one of my favourites though.

15Strength of the World
Just a beautiful song.

16And All Things Will End
Easily one of Syn's best solos. Great, Great, vastly under rated song
Probably my favorite when I listened to this for the first time, the mix of both the acoustic and the elctric guitars is just perfect. Plus the incredible duo parts in it, with a touch of one of Syns most beautiful solos, just makes this song prefect.

17Lips of Deceit


19Beast and the Harlot

20Dear God
Definitely one of their more unique songs, Dear God brings out a different side of the band that not too many people see often. Awesome song regardless
you should know...! that dear god brings out something that different in A7x songs...!

A really great song about death.R.I.P. The Rev. This is Rev's masterpiece and it's an awesome one.

This is just immense, I can't describe how amazing it is. I love every bit of it and M Shadows is a great singer. I love the punky side of Avenged Sevenfold and even though I love every side of them this is definitely one of the best!

Like fiction, this one has a creepy yet emotional atomsphere. It is really a great listen that deserves much more publicity than it has. Definitely top ten material in my opinion, none of that afterlife or waking the fallen crap

24Trashed and Scattered
Can't believe this is almost ever performed! Can't even believe this is not known as it should bee
The intro is amazing

25To End the Rapture
This song is pretty awesome, I made an alternate version that's 2 minutes long that incorporates the "Bat Wings and Broken Strings" version and the Demo version to make it even more awesome!

26Brompton Cocktail
This is a lesser known sevenfold that rocks. Syns delay divebomb, revs whispers, the strings, it's a perfect song

27The Wicked End
This song is so underrated, people just listening Beast And The Harlot, Bat Country and Seize The Day in City Of Evil. Try to listen this song and then you will be amaze by the masterpiece that Avenged Sevenfold brings to City Of Evil, not just Beast And The Harlot or Bat Country. This and Strength Of The World that I recommend you to listen

28Girl I Know
Awesome song its a damn shame that this isn't in the top 5. Dancing dead is also one of my all time favorites as well.
Probably the best song on Diamonds in the Rough, a powerhouse of fun. Sounds like a mix between the albums Avenged Sevenfold and Nightmare.

29Until The End
I have been listening to Avenged Sevenfold for over three years now. I never bothered to listen to the 'Diamonds in the Rough' album. When I finally did I came across this song and fell in love with it. This is my second favorite slow song with meaning after So Far Away. I am very disappointed that I haven't came across this song sooner.


I encourage everyone who reads this to listen to Gunslinger. It's a great song. Starts off so calm, then hits. it becomes a fiery explosion of pride in your head.
IT DOESN'T MATTER WHEN I'M COMING HOME TO YOU. It starts off all slow and country, then it goes METAL! 1


Powerful and moving song. One of their best.

31Walk (Pantera Cover)

32Clairvoyant Disease
This song is unreal! I am one of the biggest A7X fans ever, and this is definitely one of the greatest songs that I have heard form them other than Chapter Four. CHAPTER FOUR MUST BE ON THIS LIST!
Great song second best song on waking the fallen album the best is obviously unholy confessions still clairvoyant disease is great
Such a great song that I only discovered recently but is now one of my favourites.


Great song from the diamonds in the rough album. How is aferlife underrated... This is a list for voting for underrated songs not most listened to

A7X foREVer

35Critical Acclaim
No other song can describe governmental hypocrisies as good as this one does... Shame it wasn't on this list! Should've easily gotten a spot in the top 5..

36St. James

37The Fight
Great song! Lost, MIA, and The Fight are all great songs that are underrated. Such a catchy song! And really, who voted for afterlife as an underrated song.. its known as one of their best


Ok why is this so low down

Awesome song. Avenged rocks. I like save me a lot. Drumming is amazing.
I've yet to see this on a list.


This song was inspired by the death of the drummer, The Rev. This song tells the story about the scene of the Rev's death place which is his house. In this song, Avenged Sevenfold's members also added that they want to meet him in a place they would like to come which is the afterlife. This is a very emotional song and I always shed my tears everytime I hear this song. RIP The Rev, The Reverend will never end.

41I Won't See You Tonight, Pt. 2
Even under-rated on this list...

42Shepherd of Fire

43Flash of The Blade (Iron Maiden Cover)
obviously not as good as maidens. but come on it is maiden. still amazing anyway


44Chapter Four
Easily their best song hands down in my opinion

45Unbound (The Wild Ride)
Underrated yet a brilliant song. Should further up this list by a long way.
That solo guitar AH.
This is my favorite A7X song period; it's an excellent song, although its from my least favorite A7X album. I put it in the category of songs like Brompton Cocktail, Radiant Eclipse, Danger Line and Seize The Day, in which the fact that it's underrated, but it is one of the absolute strongest songs on the album.

46Tonight the World Dies
Such a dark and powerful song that should really have more recognition. The mood it sets is just perfect and Shadow's singing couldn't be better.
Probably the best singing matt has ever shown
This song is so crazy good. Bridge drives me crazy every time


48Carry On

49Forgotten Faces


51Unholy Confessions
The best a7x song to date. This song is the backbone of this band, it is what brought them to the mainstream. If Unholy Confessions wasn't a hit a7x wouldn't be who the are today. The song is just not to hard or to soft with excellent vocals, screams, riffs, strumning and drumming

52Save Me
Save Me is a7x's best song. Whether its most underrated or not, it is amazing. The complexity in the song, with the great writing, guitar riffs, key changes, and lets not forget Syn's nicest guitar solo ever, puts this song immediately on the top. Every time I hear this song, I get legitimate tingles around 3/4 into the song.
Most Underrated A7X song, enough said


I have no idea how this song is as unknown as it is. In my opinion, easily one of their best songs.

544 A.M.
