Top 10 Reasons Why Avenged Sevenfold is Overrated

A7X is band i hate and these are reasons why they are overrated

The Top Ten

This Means War is a ripoff of Sad But True by Metallica - christangrant

Funny thing Metallica has also got rip off cases. - zxm

2 They are Called the Greatest Metal Band Ever When They Aren't Metal

They are above bands like Dio and Death on The Best Metal Bands list
And they have some elements of Metal but not enough to be called Metal. - christangrant

3 M. Shadows is Called the Best Vocalist of All Time When There are Better Vocalists Out There

I wouldn'it even call him a good singer

On the Best rock singers list he's above
Ronnie James Dio and Bruce Dickinson which makes no since because both Dio and Bruce are better vocalist than he is - christangrant

9 Their First Two Albums Suck


Waking the Fallen is very medicore and their first album, Dear God... it's awful - christangrant

10 They Only Get Praise Because The Rev Passed Away

If the Rev didn't pass away A7X probably wouldn't be as overrated as they are now plus this is similar to Nirvana how they are called the greatest band ever only because Kurt died - christangrant
