They are utterly abysmal. They fail as both a band and as role models for the younger generations. How they are not on this list when Bullet For My Valentine are voted 4th is beyond my ability to understand.

There's nothing metal about them!

Not metal. Just a bunch of kids making noise.

I used to love the first 3 albums of theirsm but the last one just makes me cry. Trivium is still AWESOME! Avenged Sevenfold - AWESOME! They shouldn't be in this list! Lame! Stupid! It's the same as to put Metallica or Van Canto on this list! Stupid and pointless! I'm sure Bieber's fans just chose the most famous bands and put them here. Lame. - MichaelMaverick

After their new album you can't even call the band metal anymore.

Ok seriously, stop hating on Avenged Sevenfold. They were voted either 4th or 5th (can't remember) in a list of the greatest metal bands of all time. They are very skilled musicians and make awesome music. So stop hating them "just because its cool. " Try listening to "Afterlife" and "Nightmare" before you make an opinion.

Really kiddies? If I could put all these so called bands at the top I would. This was called hair metal in the 80's and people are to dumb to notice that the same thing is happening again. So go buy it children you obviously don't even know what metal is!

Seriously, these guys are the biggest wankers.

Also, please add The Devil Wears Prada to the list. They have been seriously underrated when it comes to the worst bands of all time. They should at least be in the top 10.

But yes, Avenged Sevenfold are terrible.

Just as I expected. A close-minded dick desides to put decent bands like Trivium and Avenged Sevenfold on this pathetic excuse of a list. - MetalFoREVer1228
