Saddest Avenged Sevenfold Songs


The Top Ten

1 So Far Away

Guitarist Synyster Gates wrote this song after the band's drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan was found dead on December 28, 2009. It is Syn's way of saying goodbye to his friend. - A7XREVFin21

I never thought a guitar solo will get me emotional but after watching the music video I can't help it. Especially the final solo when they show the pictures and videos of The Rev :'( R.I. P foREVer - Danielsun182

2 Fiction

Literal sadness

This track was written by the band's drummer Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan three days before he was found dead on December 28, 2009, making it the last song ever to be written by The Rev. It was originally titled "Death."
This song was written on Christmas in 2009 - A7XREVFin21

3 Seize the Day

Lead singer M. Shadows says that the song is about thinking twice about your actions. It's about "Seizing the Day," keeping those you love close because everything can be gone in two minutes. - A7XREVFin21

4 Dear God
5 Victim

This is the saddest song on Nightmare, and quite frankly A7X's saddest and most meaningful song. It is about the day after Jimmy died, everyone went to Matt's house, and they were looking through pictures and the memories they had with Jimmy.

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

This song has two parts: Part 1 is about suicide from the point of view of the one committing it. - A7XREVFin21

7 Tonight the World Dies
8 Warmness On the Soul

This isn't sad.

9 Gunslinger
10 M.I.A.

Avenged Sevenfold wrote this song about the American troops who were fighting the war in Iraq. The band claims to have friends who fought in the war, and wanted to give their listeners an idea of what war is like. Even though they are not a political band, they wanted to present the view of someone going to battle as a troop.
M.I.A. stands for "Missing In Action," which accounts for soldiers who could have been killed or captured in combat. - A7XREVFin21
