42 St. James

Awesome song about the legend himself. A happy version of so far away if you will.

Great song about the Rev

Awesome tribute to jimmy the rev Sullivan, deserves to be near the top

Underrated! That's all I can say.

43 Planets

This is a great song about God creating the universe! How else can I explain this song? I can't. foREVer

Awesome song after nightmare best a7x song ever

This song is a raw laserbeam of power that burst into you like an epic sonic boom. Zacky and Syns guitars are quite dominant in this song and the solo is fantastic. I think is the best song on Hail to the King and I am one of those that like all the songs on the record.

I used to hate this song, but it became my favorite off hail to the king!

44 Warmness on the Soul

Great vocal melody, easily the best off the first album. all in all just a great sounding song with a wicked guitar solo. should definitely be bumped up a few spots from no.27

should be at least below 20! the piano its so amazing!

This is mine and my baby's song I love him so much and I love this song. I love listening to it. It reminds me of him This song should be top 5. NOT number 30! I think that needs to be chaged!

Overrated pile of Garbage this is a medicore at best song but that still doesn't save the album of STST - christangrant

45 The Stage

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.

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

The best avenged sevenfold song perhaps!

How is this not in the top 5?

46 And All Things Will End

Ok I can't believe how underrated this song is. Best song on waking the fallen but the outro of the song is absolutely the best thing I ever heard you have to listen to it, its unexplainable.

This song is so catchy laugh out loud, how is it all the way at the bottom? Has all the a7x qualities, great solo, nice length, catch chorus, and heavy riff... The only reason I can fathom that people haven't voted this song higher is because they haven't heard it..

This song kicks the most ass ever. I've never heard a more under rated, yet epic song ever. And it perfectly manages the shifts between mellow and hardcore. And has my favorite a7x lyrics ever: "I have seen my world crumble and fall before my eyes, I know, I know... Dark will turn to light... In time I'll be all right. I know... I know. "

47 The Wicked End

It's simply their best song. It has everything, a catchy chorus, a great bass intro, a killer guitar solo and awesome lyrics

Not surprised this is all the way down here - is pretty well underrated. It is such a great song though, one of the stand-outs from City of Evil in my opinion, notably for its creativity, the great riffs, duels, and the epic solo. Love love love!

Great lyrics, drumming and the best ever guitar solo should have ben in the top ten! The third best song from their album city of evil

By far their best written song both instrumentaly and lyrically. So technical! I think that's why you never see it played live

48 Exist

Unbelievably awe inspiring! I love the concept of the whole album, especially this amazing summary of humanity. Not in my top 10 list of favorite songs, but number 1 in my most inspirational songs.

Avenged Sevenfold's most symbolic and conceptual songs yet.

This is really complex and amazing

Very complex and original sounding track.
Not sure about the outro though.

49 Dancing Dead

How come dancing dead isn't in the top 10?

Simple and really catchy top ten kick ass solo and beat

The best a7x song in my opinion. the riff is just insane! the drum kills it. vote up this song man!

50 Desecrate Through Reverence

M Shadows' best work vocally during this era. His screams were ridiculously high and his choruses are very melodic here. Too bad they never played this song live. This song takes a lot of vocal endurance and does not need a solo to be awesome. A7X chose a different path when writing this one and did very well. How sick is that breakdown when he screams "Don't ask! You'll never know! "? Definitely. Top 5 right here.

Wow, 51? I almost can't believe that this is where it is and dear god almost cracked the top 10. Shows the true a7x fans and the fans of their sellout songs. This has to be one of his best vocal performances and not to mention he can scream with such enthusiasm and antiquity, it almost gives me goosebumps.

I love Shadow's scream voice in this song, and this song can't make me bored..
Must be higher than this position! !

The Rev screams amazing here, not like at Critical Acclaim when he sounds weak. But this song is lack of Shadow's song - razors15

51 Girl I Know

Most underrated song by A7X. This song has everything from a strong beginning, to a catchy chorus, then to a crazy good solo. If this wasn't on the live in lbc album then this song would have been recognized as one of sevenfolds best songs

This is a beat song, come on. Its really underrated! The lyrics are kinda weird but weird is cool.

I'd sit in my room and listen to this song over and over. Amazing song, catchy and probably one of the best songs on Diamonds In The Rough. The Rev's drums kill :D.. I Love A7X foREVer.

This is a really great song! I love everything of it, the chorus, the solo, the drum and also the lyrics! It is so catchy, it must be at least in top 20!

52 Lost It All

This is probably my favorite song they've ever done, right next to 4 A.M. and Fiction. It has a catchy guitar part, a good speed, and the message is so potent, I'm surprised it is not higher. I will admit it s not top-ten material, but this does not get the credit it deserves.

I have to say all of a7xs songs are awesome but this song should be at least around 20 I love this song and I think its one of their best

53 Radiant Eclipse

This song is arguably one of the best on the album, almost giving off a bit of a doom metal vibe with the heavy intro, however, it quickly ramps back into the pacing more commonly recognized by sevenfold fans, and the vocals pick up. The percussion work is extremely well done, and the melodic parts of the song top it off very well. The vocals, whilst varying greatly, are amazing, and the lyrics are quite meaningful. Overall an incredible song

Criminally underrated. Excellent intro. Waking the fallen was their best album.

Like these people said: this song is EXTREMELY underrated. The epic intro, into the "radiant" octaves, into the verse... And then when the verse goes into the 1st chorus, with the octave guitars, an orgasmic appeal is shown through this kickassery. How this all ends with the guitar solo, and incredible vocal arrangements, this is by far THE MOST UNDERRATED song of all Avenged Sevenfold. It should be in the top 10 in my honest opinion.

My most favorite song ever. This song has the greatest chorus that was ever made in my opinion. Wish they would play it live though haha

54 Crimson Day

Best Song on the New Album! Should easily be in the top 10! The solo is amazing and the Vocals are so touching!

I absolutely love this's great Please listen to it, you won't regret it

The best song in Hail To the King, it is just so powerful in its own unique way

I do not have a favorite but I really believe this song should be ranked higher. The guitar solo is second only to November Rain on my all time list.

56 Acid Rain

This song Is gonna be something Big I hope It dragged me in the first time I heard it I'm gonna be listening to this song a lot in the Future! - Curti2594

Definitely their most underrated song ever. This song is absolutely incredible, but nobody knows about it. This and danger line definitely need to been more well known. Just amazing

A great song for changing their sound

Like the way they took a blues tempo to this track

57 Eternal Rest

For this song to be so low it just shows how much the typical Avenged Sevenfold fan knows about Metal music... Not much!

This song makes you feel a badass why the hell wasnt it in the list! The intro is insane, the main riff is meaty, simple and really catchy. Give it a listen

This song deserves a lot higher than 58

Great song has everything in it

58 Crossroads

This is a superb song with great drumming, vocal from jimmy and guitar is just killing this shouldn't be at this level this should have been more high

Wow. I love all of Avenged Sevenfold's songs. This one is possibly the best. The lyrics have both a powerful surface meaning and a deeper meaning that will stick with you for a lifetime. Matt did an excellent job on the vocals, and Jimmy was amazing on the drums and with his small vocal section as well. Zacky and Syn fill out the song with their crazy fast guitar and Johnny ties it all together with the bass. This song is just amazing, and is deserving of a spot at the top, not down at 52. A7x foREVer.

Amazing song. The only reason this isn't higher is because it's on Diamonds in the Rough, so fewer people got to hear it.

This song is smart heavy and catchy I don't know why this isn't higher it deserves to be higher

59 Until the End

This song gave me that deja-vu feeling the first time I heard it. The lyrics are some of the best that Avenged Sevenfold have ever written. The intro is perfect. The chorus is what makes it a classic though. How this song made it onto a b-sides, covers and remixes album we'll never know.

Ho my gosh, this song is amazing. The piano in the verses is outstanding, the chorus, all of it! It's so underrated, it really should be higher on the list.

Definitely has to be my favorite song by them. I own every album by them except seventh trumpet and this song, along with A little piece in heaven and unbound (the wild ride), has to be in my top 5. Most likely #1.

This is one of Avenged Sevenfold's greatest slow sad songs. The lyrics are very meaningful and well written. Until the End has become one of my favorite A7X songs because it's so amazing.

60 Tonight the World Dies

This is a great song. I really love the acoustic side of A7x, like So far away, Gunslinger, Mia, but this song is different, tires to say something. As a guitar player, I find a lot of feelings between the lyrics and the guitar.


This is the best Avenged Sevenfold song EVER! Yeah Afterlife is Godlike but this song is as good as Metallica it has one of the greatest solos in the history of solos

How Does humans put this song on 63 I can not understand I wont say it should be on the top but it should be in the top ten just listen to it!
