Best Lesser Known Avenged Sevenfold Songs

The Top Ten

1 Second Heartbeat

Best Avenged Sevenfold Albums:

1. Waking the Fallen
2. City of Evil
3. Sounding the Seventh Trumpet
4. Nightmare
5. Diamonds in the Rough
6. Avenged Sevenfold
7. Hail To the King
I'll always love and support A7X, and I'm happy for them that the new album was the #1 album in several large countries. Personally I think their old stuff sounds so much more emotional and mature sounding than what they produce nowadays. The guitar solos in Hail To the King are hokey and sound like nothing but scalar runs. My favorite A7X guitar solos: end of M.I.A., end of And All Things Will End, Sidewinder (listen the solo backgrounds too, they're much more complex especially compared to Shepherd of Fire). The overall guitar work in Waking the Fallen and City of Evil is much stronger than what their newer albums. Newer A7X Songs I Still Like
1. Save Me
2. Buried Alive
3. Fiction

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

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 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).

4 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?

5 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!

6 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

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 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

9 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

Amazing intro, amazing outro, deep chorus lyrics, should be played in every Avenged Sevenfold's tour.

10 St. James

Best song in Jimmys (the rev) memory.

The Contenders

11 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

12 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

13 God Hates Us

Come on your insulting a7x and the fans... are you really a metal fan? If you don't like this song so you are not a r a roll fan

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

The drums r beast

14 Until The End

I have been listening to Avenged Sevenfold for over three years now. I never bothered to listen to the 'Diamonds in the Rough' album. When I finally did I came across this song and fell in love with it. This is my second favorite slow song with meaning after So Far Away. I am very disappointed that I haven't came across this song sooner. - DeViNe_LegenD

Just listen to this song and you wont regret it.

15 Demons

Like fiction, this one has a creepy yet emotional atomsphere. It is really a great listen that deserves much more publicity than it has. Definitely top ten material in my opinion, none of that afterlife or waking the fallen crap

16 4 A.M.

This song is basically unheard of. But I think it is a really good song. It is just something about this that is really good.

17 Warmness on the Soul

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.

18 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!

Just a beautiful song.

19 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 is one of therir most popular songs? Why are this uncluded

20 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.

One of the lesser known songs on Waking the Fallen, but has never failed to give me chills when the solo and matt sings ¨better off dead¨ or ¨no ones around¨.

21 Tension
22 Lips of Deceit

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

23 Nightmare

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

24 Crossroads

Great song from the diamonds in the rough album. How is aferlife underrated... This is a list for voting for underrated songs not most listened to

A7X foREVer

25 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

26 Beast and the Harlot

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

27 Dose
28 Dear God

Definitely one of their more unique songs, Dear God brings out a different side of the band that not too many people see often. Awesome song regardless

you should know...! that dear god brings out something that different in A7x songs...!

29 Betrayed
30 Streets

This is just immense, I can't describe how amazing it is. I love every bit of it and M Shadows is a great singer. I love the punky side of Avenged Sevenfold and even though I love every side of them this is definitely one of the best!

31 Trashed and Scattered

Can't believe this is almost ever performed! Can't even believe this is not known as it should bee

The intro is amazing

32 To End the Rapture

This song is pretty awesome, I made an alternate version that's 2 minutes long that incorporates the "Bat Wings and Broken Strings" version and the Demo version to make it even more awesome!

33 Waking the Fallen: Resurrected
34 Walk (Pantera Cover)
35 The Fight

Great song! Lost, MIA, and The Fight are all great songs that are underrated. Such a catchy song! And really, who voted for afterlife as an underrated song.. its known as one of their best - cowboyskid2

36 Fiction

A really great song about death.R.I.P. The Rev. This is Rev's masterpiece and it's an awesome one.

37 Brompton Cocktail

This is a lesser known sevenfold that rocks. Syns delay divebomb, revs whispers, the strings, it's a perfect song

38 Tonight the World Dies

Such a dark and powerful song that should really have more recognition. The mood it sets is just perfect and Shadow's singing couldn't be better.

Probably the best singing matt has ever shown

This song is so crazy good. Bridge drives me crazy every time

39 Heretic
40 The Wicked End

This song is so underrated, people just listening Beast And The Harlot, Bat Country and Seize The Day in City Of Evil. Try to listen this song and then you will be amaze by the masterpiece that Avenged Sevenfold brings to City Of Evil, not just Beast And The Harlot or Bat Country. This and Strength Of The World that I recommend you to listen

41 Forgotten Faces
42 Gunslinger

I encourage everyone who reads this to listen to Gunslinger. It's a great song. Starts off so calm, then hits. it becomes a fiery explosion of pride in your head.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHEN I'M COMING HOME TO YOU. It starts off all slow and country, then it goes METAL! 1 - TheKnifeMaster

Powerful and moving song. One of their best.

43 Doing Time
44 Girl I Know

Awesome song it's a damn shame that this isn't in the top 5. Dancing dead is also one of my all time favorites as well.

Probably the best song on Diamonds in the Rough, a powerhouse of fun. Sounds like a mix between the albums Avenged Sevenfold and Nightmare.

45 Chapter Four

Easily their best song hands down in my opinion

Best a7x song hands down

46 Sidewinder

Ok why is this so low down

47 Critical Acclaim

No other song can describe governmental hypocrisies as good as this one does... Shame it wasn't on this list! Should've easily gotten a spot in the top 5..

48 Victim

This song was inspired by the death of the drummer, The Rev. This song tells the story about the scene of the Rev's death place which is his house. In this song, Avenged Sevenfold's members also added that they want to meet him in a place they would like to come which is the afterlife. This is a very emotional song and I always shed my tears everytime I hear this song. RIP The Rev, The Reverend will never end.

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

Even under-rated on this list...

This song is even underrated on this list, that's bullcrap
