Best Avenged Sevenfold Songs
The Contenders: Page 3
I understand why this isn't on top, it took me awhile to listen to this album, but it's their best, and I have 64 a7x songs on my iPod. The mainstream get top, but waking the fallen was the best album by them.
All the best songs they have are on the bottom of this list. Too many of their mainstream songs get all the appreciation. This song has been my favorite song by them since I first heard it and if you can't find the brilliant meaning in it then you are not a true fan.
Just like another person said, it took me awhile to listen to Waking the Fallen and actually enjoy it, but when I did I learned that it was by far the best album Avenged Sevenfold has ever produced. It's truly a masterpiece and honestly I cannot rank any one song on this album above the other, I have listened to them all about 30 times.
Extemely awesome...great vocals by m shadows and awesome drumming by arin ilejay...zacky and syn simply rocks and johnny tooV 3 Comments
Awesome song about the legend himself. A happy version of so far away if you will.
Awesome tribute to jimmy the rev Sullivan, deserves to be near the top
Amazing outro to their newest album. I'm sure it's only this low because of how new it is, cause this ought to be top 10. Guess it's not the most popular, but dang it! It's good!
This really is the song that reminds me of the Rev the most. It would be a lot higher if it was actually on the album.V 7 Comments
The drumming in this song is so awesome and the guitar solo is amazing to. It should definitely be top 5
This song deserves to be in top ten! Matt has screamed again in this one! - lookmyeyes
Amazing! Loved matt's vocals and the guitar solo! - lookmyeyes
This song is a hard hitter. Since I'm an atheist, this song doesn't offend me in any way! LOVE LOVE LOVE! - ckets4769V 11 Comments
Amazing song, kinda simple but so catchy
How come dancing dead isn't in the top 10?
Simple and really catchy top ten kick ass solo and beat
One of their best songs ever!V 6 Comments
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!
As Avenged Sevenfold's best work, it really shows how much they've developed as a bandV 23 Comments
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 liveV 8 Comments
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!V 2 Comments
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.
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
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
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 song..it'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.V 2 Comments
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.
TONIGHT THE WORLD DIES IS BOTH THE BEST Avenged Sevenfold SONG AND THE MOST OVERRATED SADLY JUDGING BY ITS PLACE ON THE LIST I DOUBT MUCH PEOPLE LISTEN TO IT, BUT IT'S STILL ONE OF MY FAVORITES IT DESERVES TO BE NUMBER ONE!
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!V 9 Comments
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 trackV 10 Comments
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 higherV 2 Comments
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 itV 3 Comments
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 song is currently my favorite song. I love avenged sevenfoldV 5 Comments
The song is amazing, the lyrics all make sense, and the intro is really cool. The beat is really catchy as well.
Some of the revs best work! You gotta love the insane intro
This song is just too cool to be at #45 -.-
should be added on the list its pretty cool - Ak3nator
Such an underrated song, defiantly deserves some more attention. I own most of their albums and I can easily say this is one of my favorites,
this should be definitely in top 8 trust me I know every single a7x song and I am pretty much an a7x freak this song and MIA and definitely trashed and scattered
I've played guitar for 7 years and this songs guitar and lyrics really peak my interest, surprised its not higher on the list
Are you serious? This song is too good to be place 59... People should definitely listen more to this amazing song. I will tattoo myself " passion in my eyes, I live it everyday" the next week.V 6 Comments
The simple fact that this song is not in the top 50 is a catastrophe.. Amazing lyrics and meaning, great melodies, and unbelievable emotion behind it all.. This song has everything, and judging by the rest of the list, I could probably guess that no one has heard this song, or it'd be a lot higher.. In my top 5.. However, the large majority of the voters seem like mainstream music lovers.. Anyone that gives this song a chance won't be disappointed
The fact that this song is ranked outside the top 50 proves that this list was made by mainstream music fans who listen to Avenged Sevenfold from time to time. Any true A7X fan respects the first two albums enough to know that songs like Clairvoyant Disease are masterpieces. My favorite song personally is Seize the Day, but Clairvoyant Disease is not far off. This song has absolutely everything you could ask for, and I would urge any music-lover to give it a chance.
Best song by them in my opinion has good singing and amazing guitar it's the best song on that album by far now I can see how nightmare got higher and so far away but any other song being higher than this one would be plain garbage the meaning is amazing to it's their best meaning in a song besides betrayed and so far away
My favorite song other than I Won't See You Tonight Part 1 (original) and Exist. If you liked this, then you will probably like I won't see you tonight pt. 1.V 7 Comments
A great song, check it out people!
Should be at least top 20 everythings great, guitar lyrics drums. No, seriously, check it out.
