This said rock band but whatever - Lucretia

No disrespect to A7X, I like them, but if it weren't for this album they would probably be stuck as suburban tattoo artists. - lavashooter

2 Avenged Sevenfold

With all due respect to Rage Against the Machine, this is the best. This has Afterlife, A Little Piece of Heaven, Almost Easy, Gunslinger, Critical Acclaim, Scream, and Dear God. RATM has Killing in the Name, Wake Up, and Bombtrack. If RATM had Bulls on Parade, then it would be better.

2. You Shook Me - uncredited cover of Willie Dixon' You Shook Me (credited back to him)
3. Dazed and Confused - uncredited cover of Jake Holme's Dazed and Confused
4. Babe I'm Gonna Leave You - uncredited cover of Joan Baez's Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, originally by Anne Bredon
5. How Many More Times - a ripoff of Howlin’ Wolf's How Many More Years and Albert King's The Hunter
6. Communication Breakdown - very reminiscent of Eddie Cochran's Nervous Breakdown
