Best Avenged Sevenfold Songs

The Top Ten

1 Afterlife Afterlife Cover Art

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!

Great song, The Rev really made a good work on this one, really good drums and lyrics.

2 Nightmare Nightmare Cover Art

Great song
everyone must listen to this song
this song was one of the last the rev made,
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

The song that changed a7x forever. We will miss The Rev the rest of our lives. The transition between piano and guitar at the beggining... Always make me feel goosebumps.

3 A Little Piece of Heaven A Little Piece of Heaven Cover Art

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! It's 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

A Little Piece Of Heaven is a very very special song, as all Avenged Sevenfold fans know. It's so unique and individual, everything about it is brilliant, particularly those great choruses. It has it's own unique style, and is a brilliant song. In ways this song deserves an even better position on this remix, A Little Piece Of Heaven, So Far Away, Seize The Day, Fiction, Chapter Four, Hail To The King and Coming Home are all literally joint sixth for me, I cannot choose between them, they're all better than each other in different ways and are all BRILLIANT songs. Despite Chapter Four and So Far Away coming so close, A Little Piece Of Heaven has got to reach my top ten.

Avenged Sevenfold are a brilliant band. Particularly their second studio album Waking The Fallen, their fourth studio album Avenged Sevenfold, and their fifth studio album Nightmare, they're epic albums that all fans of rock and metal should listen to.
There's three songs in particular that come extremely ...more

4 Bat Country Bat Country Cover Art

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

The ENERGY of this song is just insane. Love the contrast of the hard driving riffs that sound heavy yet fun and bouncy, and the slow, melancholic drugged out sounding sections

5 Beast and the Harlot Beast and the Harlot Cover Art

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.

From The Get-Go the song gives the feeling that you’re about to go on roller coaster. It doesn’t take long for you to go down the hill and experience head banging perfection. Also, very badass lyrics, drawing inspiration from the Bible.

6 So Far Away So Far Away Cover Art

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.

It doesn't have a killer solo guitar, simplest a7x drumtrack. But see, its on top 5 in this list because it has deep meaning.

7 Critical Acclaim Critical Acclaim Cover Art

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 it's the best.

One of the bands best songs, so diverse from the start with the piano setting the time for the rest of the band to go off of. Great lyrics that speak to many people about war and problems in todays society. Guitar doesn’t do too much on the main riff but it gets the job done.

8 Almost Easy Almost Easy Cover Art

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 favorites so far!

The bridge is unbelievable. Unholy confessions is a really good song as well

From when the you press play to the time the song ends, you go on a ride that will shake even the most basic metal core listener to their core. Very good backup singers. M. Shadows cadence is also displayed in prominence and is his best on the album. Top 3 guitar solo in their catalogue as well.

9 Save Me Save Me Cover Art

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.

I'm a Mike Portnoy fan and most of drumming part in this song almost like in Dream Theater (I know The Rev made the drum parts of this song but you know, the Rev main influence is Mike Portnoy)

10 Seize the Day Seize the Day Cover Art

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.

I am of the older generation and was never a fan of millenial music, and still am not (Avenged Sevenfold is special and is an exception). My generation favourites include The Trooper by Iron Maiden, You Shook Me All Night Long by AC/DC, She's Gone by Steelheart etc. I was one of those older generation fixated in the view that, as my generation call it, "manufactured bands" and "manufactured music" of the younger newer generation can never have that raw quality so strong that they transfer that raw music passion to their fans unlike the old days. That kind of music is hard to find in this generation (once again, Avenged Sevenfold is an exception). When I first heard Seize the Day on the radio, I was caught by surprise and was awestruck and amazed at the quality and obvious chemistry. For the first time, the generation we had called "manufactured" had proved this old man wrong and I am very sure many others of my generation who heard this over the radio (only too proud to admit it). ...more

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 ' amazing.

The Contenders

11 Second Heartbeat Second Heartbeat Cover Art

A staple song by the band any true fan will put this somewhere in their top 10 at the least. So much energy when the lead vocals come in and a very catchy and addictive chorus. Amazing drumming by the rev shines through very bright on this song.

... 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

12 Buried Alive Buried Alive Cover Art

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

Easily the best song ever created. It combines feeling and in your face music I'm a hardcore masterpiece. The solo is absolutely amazing, and the way the song splits in to after the second chorus is God-like. The intro is absolutely fantastic. And just, I'm possible to top.

13 Hail to the King Hail to the King Cover Art

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

This is my favourite song in the world. Intro and middle solo guitar are amazing, and lyrics give me goosebumps.

14 Unholy Confessions Unholy Confessions Cover Art

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.

Simply the best Avenged Sevenfold song, in my opinion. Really underrated, along with the album 'Waking the Fallen' as seen on this list. M. Shadows provides clean vocals along with screamed vocals on this song. The guitar riffs are both cool and catchy. This song has a really "heart-wrenching" story in it's lyrics.

Newer A7X fans should really listen to the 'Waking the Fallen' album thoroughly, for once, at least.

15 Chapter Four Chapter Four Cover Art

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 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. '"

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 needs to be much higher. It has great guitar work, a killer drum-line by the late, great Rev, and some awesome vocals from Shadows, both clean and dirty. Best of all, it is based upon the Biblical story where the band got their name. While their new stuff is also awesome, this is an incredible song that often gets overlooked,

16 Welcome to the Family Welcome to the Family Cover Art

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...

Dude this should not be down here! I swear there's got to be some kind of mistake. Welcome to the Family makes everyone feel like they belong and it tells you that you're not alone in this world. Yet it manages not to sound boring and preachy. Heck it's everything BUT boring and preachy! It's so catchy I'm actually happy when I get it stuck in my head. Whoever put A Little Piece Of Heaven before this is getting a fist in their face that song is creepy

17 Dear God Dear God Cover Art

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. "

This song gets me in the feels for very personal reasons. It truly makes you miss her again.

18 M.I.A. M.I.A. Cover Art

This song should be number one on the list... It's 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

This is one of those songs where everything fits perfectly, especially in the verses, and it couldn’t be better in any way

19 I Won't See You Tonight I Won't See You Tonight Cover Art

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

There are many songs by this band better than I won't see you tonight, but this deserves to be at least in top ten.
This song, especially in the middle part and in the ending, shows the progressive side of this band, and it has deep lyrics and a great meaning

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.

20 Shepherd of Fire Shepherd of Fire Cover Art

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.

Most underrated song in my opinion. That "Enter Sandman" feeling when you hear it... For me this could be top 10 easily

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.

21 Scream Scream Cover Art

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

Honestly, this is my favorite one of their songs. The lyrics and the way that the background accentuates them really flow together well. It's completely amazing and I was shocked that it wasn't in the top ten comments.

In my opinion it must easily take 1 of the top 5 positions! Epic chorus and an epic build up!

22 Strength of the World Strength of the World Cover Art

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.

Personally my favorite song by Avenged Sevenfold. Why it is not in the top ten is very hard to believe. The riffs are heavy, the lyrics and melodies are heavenly and very emotional. I think this sing should be number one on this list. End of story.

23 Coming Home Coming Home Cover Art

Just a punchy, powerful rock song. I know, it would be considered metal but to me it sounds more like a rock song.

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.

24 The Stage The Stage Cover Art

One of the greatest rock songs of the century, in my opinion. And become one of the Avenged Greatest :v The Guitar solo really catch in, and the lyrics are very great.

Best story, best dramatic tempo/melody transitions. This is A7x's November Rain but rather than telling the story of tragic love it expresses the ultimate tragedy of relationship between humanity and death.

The best avenged sevenfold song perhaps!

Huge song and great video (and the lyrics as well)

25 Fiction Fiction Cover Art

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

Spooky piano all the way through, and jimmys vocals in the chorus are breath taking, one of their best songs in my opinion

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.
