Top 10 Avenged Sevenfold Songs to Play at a Funeral

Avenged Sevenfold are to date my favourite band. They have a nice variety of hard rock bangers and more slow jams. They also have several songs I feel could be fitting choices for a funeral. Here are the 10 songs that I think would best suit the occasion.

The Top Ten

1 So Far Away

Obvious number 1 choice is obvious, but really, how could it not be? This really is the perfect song to say goodbye to someone you love.
There's a reason why the band often play this song live and in tribute to their fallen brother The Rev. - SuperSonic17

Really sad song. - TheDarkOne_221b

They seem like a good band. - TheDarkOne_221b

2 Acid Rain

A song focusing much more on the acceptance of death, along with it's use of strings and piano, this one also works wonders.
"Life wouldn't be so precious dear if there never was an end." - SuperSonic17

Why do people hate this band? - TheDarkOne_221b

3 Seize the Day

Another great song that gives the message of live life while you have the chance, because it's not going to last forever. I mean the music video even has Synyster Gates playing the solo standing on a coffin. - SuperSonic17

Why do people call this band metal? - TheDarkOne_221b

4 Dear God

This song would be a good way of asking God to look after your loved ones when they're gone (probably works best if you believe in God though). - SuperSonic17

5 Fiction

The last song The Rev wrote as his goodbye to the band before dying.
"I know you'll find your own way when I'm not with you." - SuperSonic17

6 Victim

To be honest a lot of songs from 'Nightmare' revolve around death and departure, and Victim is no exception.
"We're all just victim's of a crime." - SuperSonic17

7 I Won't See You Tonight, Pt. 1

One of the band's earliest sad songs, it's themes of sorrow and depression really would strike a chord at a funeral. - SuperSonic17

8 Strength of the World

A bit of a long one, so maybe not the whole song, but those lyrics at the end "I miss my family, I'll never be alright" just hit so hard. - SuperSonic17

9 Tonight the World Dies

Not really much to say, another soft and sad song from 'Nightmare'. - SuperSonic17

10 Roman Sky

Out of the songs from their latest album it was a toss-up between this and 'Angels'. In the end though I feel this song would suit better with it's softer guitar and use of strings. - SuperSonic17
