Best Lesser Known Avenged Sevenfold Songs

The Top Ten

1 Second Heartbeat

It is impossible to not tap your feet along to the double bass. This song pumps you up like no other

I love this song. I thing it is just amazingly done and I also suggest to listen to the demo version

It's long nice bass nice drums nice screams and a epic solo

Amazing song but I would have been a lot better if M. Shadows screamed a bit less...

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

Probably not their best song... But really, this song is really underrated, makes me wanna cry... And in my opinion this is the best song from "Waking the Fallen". Should have been at least 20 - 5 on the top ten list

This is easily their best song. The ending on this song is what makes it the best. This song probably has the best ending of any song ever on any song in any genre. The vocals and fade out in the last 2 minutes are actually insane. Not only the ending is great, but the message is also very powerful.

One of their best songs in my opinion. Looked on my ipod after about 7 months and it had something like 400 plays on it, absolute brilliant song with a lot of emotion

Beautiful song

3 Radiant Eclipse

Love this song, great opening and chorus. Read the lyrics with it to enjoy it to the very fullest. One of the best from Waking The Fallen.

This song is beast and obviosly pretty awesome

Whoa! This is an epic song! I was blown away when I heard this. And IT IS EXTREMELY UNDERRATED!

4 M.I.A.

Honestly city of evil is their best album. I love every single track on it, and still have not gotten bored of it. Waking the fallen, in my opinion, had too much screaming, and M.Shadows vocals are wasted on them. They are much better suited as a hard rock band. Sadly enough they are reverting back to their metal days with the release of hail to the king...i actually liked where they were going with Nightmare, unlike most people :(

Really meaningful lyrics. I mean, out of all the songs about war out there, this one is a dark look at the morality and lingering effects of war. Plus, not only are the vocals, drums, bass and guitars spot on, the solo is godly.

The Best song they ever wrote in my opinion great intro with great fade out with a fantastic solo from Synyster gates in the middle what more could you want

I don't know whether "Second Heartbeat" is "lesser known a7x song" or not... nevermind. M.I.A. is even better than it and deserve the top 1 place. Overshadowed by "Beast and the Harlot" and "Bat Country", wasn't even released as a single... but how awesome it is! Probably the best solo in a7x history and heart-moving vocals by M.Shadows. In my opinion it's their 4th best song (in total), losing only to "Bat Country", "Beast and the Harlot" and "Afterlife" ("So Far Away" is my 5th) and definitelly the best "lesser known" one.

Second place should go to "Blinded in Chains"... another obviously underrated gem from "City of Evil". If we count "Second Heartbeat", it's my 3rd place. If not, the 3rd place goes to "Sidewinder" (oh, another "City of Evil" song, this record was incredible). 4th/5th place should go to "And All Things Will End", way better than "Unholy Confessions" (and pretty much everything on "Waking the Fallen", not counting "Second Heartbeat" of course).

5 Blinded in Chains

This song is really underrated, not the best song of A7x, though it is a good song. How is afterlife underrated, and why are people voting afterlife in this list? God hates us and Dear god should go up the list Vote other songs bastards don't vote afterlife, nightmare, beast and the harlot and other songs that are popular

Second Heartbeat is great..
Man this song has got :
1. The best drum solo ever
2. The best bass solo ever
3. The best rhythm guitar work ever
4. The best lead guitar move ever
5. The best singing (incorporates singing, rapping, screaming).. That too very VIBRANT, faster, energetic ever...
Don't know why people love singles from this album..
Blinded in chains is (one of the) best song ever made in HISTORY!...

I really love this song, no idea why its underrated like this but still... love the vocals, cool drums (really like the intro) and guitars as well. Everything works great together!

On a side note... Why the hell is Afterlife on this list. You realize that is like their most popular song right? - xSpartanXx

Lesser Known?

haven't you heard of Need For Speed Most Wanted?

6 We Come Out at Night

I love all their lesser known songs and We Come Out At Night is my favourite. Most Underrated? Out of all the rest I don't know but this song is just perfect to me.

Definitely the most lesser known song

The song that got me hooked.

What a masterpiece!
Best song from before city of evil
So underrated people put this at number 1 - a7xrules

7 Lost

Everything about this song is fantastic. The intro has the power of putting you in a calm state of mind for the rest of the song. The lyrics, guitar solo, outro, and chorus are all amazing too. I personally hate it when singers don't sound great so they resort to autotune, but in the case of this song, it's very strategic. It sounds amazing, as does everything else. It's a shame that this became a deep track. - Songsta41

the beginning reminds me of Dragonforce, but its definitely one of the best ''unknown'' A7X song and it has a really good and catchy chorus, just love it

Great Twin Guitars for the majority of the song, impossible not to love. The Rev's singing in the chorus makes me happy.

On an album full of beasts this is the second best track (only behind Little Piece of Heaven).

8 Turn the Other Way

Possibly the Best song from their first album. Even if the album is nowhere near the best overall, this song does deserve a listen

9 Shattered by Broken Dreams

Very underrated, thoughtful and heartwarming lyrics. Very good song

This song is the best it means a lot and generates a self explanatory image

10 Remenissions

Sick drumming, creative guitar playing, poetic lyrics, and a unique chorus that ties the whole song together. This is not only my favorite lesser known Avenged Sevenfold song, but possibly my favorite of all time.

Absolutely love this song. The lyrics speak to me, and that's what I look for in a song. Should be better known, but the few who know it will agree that this song is breathtaking.

This song is just awesome, the sick as vocals of M. Shadows when he both screams and sings is just amazing. Definitely deserves to be in the real top 10. So underrated

I pee my pants every time I whack off to this song

? Shepherd of Fire

The Contenders

11 God Hates Us

If you heard this song you heard the awesome guitar riff at the begining I mean pure gold!

The drums r beast

Most people don't know this song but I think it's their best

By the way this is one of their most well known songs but one of my favourites though.

13 Strength of the World

Awesome guitar work. Sure the vocals during the chorus are kind of terrible, but other then that this song is awesome!

14 Dancing Dead

Out of all other great songs from a7x, this one is really simple and catchy! Can't stop listening to it from the first time heard it. Until now, probably one of my most favorite song to listen.

between this I like shattered by broken dreams.. in lyric side, I more like shattered by broken dreams, because it's like tell us at a7x that jimmy's left. but in music side, I like dancing dead, awesome - Liefa

This song is amazing. Shads has a beautiful voice, amazing and catchy chorus, awesome riff, and a solo that will BLOW YOUR MIND!

Best song ever. I got a tattoo because of it

15 Afterlife

I don't even know why this song is on this list, it's probably there most known and popular song

I agree. This is the song that everybody knows. This is the song that many of my friends told me to listen to when I wanted to get into Avenged.

Why is this song included here? This is the best song ever.

Come on, who ever thinks this is a lesser known song has not listened to A7X

This song reached #1

16 Clairvoyant Disease

This song is unreal! I am one of the biggest A7X fans ever, and this is definitely one of the greatest songs that I have heard form them other than Chapter Four. CHAPTER FOUR MUST BE ON THIS LIST!

Great song second best song on waking the fallen album the best is obviously unholy confessions still clairvoyant disease is great

Much better than Second Heartbeat, very very underrated song in my opinion. Listen to this song and you'll realize it's really amazing.

What? this song is so amazing, just can't help myself falling in love with this song... it's one of my favourite avenged sevenfold songs and one of the most underrated song as well

17 Lips of Deceit

This song has such a badass instrumental, It's just so sick and Shads kills the screaming like always.

18 Nightmare

This is a good song. But its not underrated. Why put here.? - mukhlzaxc876

19 Beast and the Harlot

Why is this on the not well known list, its one of the best

Really? It's one of their most well known songs. - jack2244

20 And All Things Will End

Easily one of Syn's best solos. Great, Great, vastly under rated song

Probably my favorite when I listened to this for the first time, the mix of both the acoustic and the elctric guitars is just perfect. Plus the incredible duo parts in it, with a touch of one of Syns most beautiful solos, just makes this song prefect.

Great song
