2 Save Me Save Me

#8? In my opinion this is the best guitar track Avenged has ever made and one of the better vocal tracks. I think it also their best written 'epic' song. Great transitions, awesome solo, great breakdown, and an overall cohesive feel. I grant that it may be tougher to get into then the other songs because of its length, but a true fan should be able to appreciate this as one of their most complete songs to date.

I agree, this should not be #8, more like #1. 11 minutes of epic-ness in my opinion. Most people probably just pass by the 11 minute song, but if you have time sit down and give it a listen, it will be amazing, the vocals, guitar solo, etc. And everything really flows together nicely. - xSpartanXx

Longest/ best song they've ever recorded. With the bells and violins, the dual guitarists are the best in it. And the ending just fits in so well. This should be number 1

Where A7x meets Mike Portnoy's end of influence, PROG! Basically, 11 minutes of Dream Theater, but done in A7x style, and with not quite the same bass stuff (that would make this song too good for mortal ears.)

3 So Far Away So Far Away

its so touching... makes me cry every time I here it... love Shadows voice.. hands down boy...!
Syn wrote this song tribute to the Rev(Greatest Drummer ever.. R.I.P. ) and one of the best guitar solos I've ever heard... WoOoow... This song is Perfect in every way and One of the greates(I mean it) songs by a7x(Greatest musicians)... love it lot...

I have so much to say but your so far away...! love you guys... - skt

Every single time I hear to this song I cry.. It doesn't matter where I am or how my mood is, I just cry because it breaks my heart the meaning of the song and of course the way that shadow, syn, zacky and christ make me feel the song trough my whole body till my heart... The guitar solo really gets so deep

nightmare has so much feeling and effort, what a beautiful album. Johnny written this song, so sweet...

This should be number 1, I've listened to Nightmare too many times and it gets easily outplayed. So Far Away has more meaning and should be at number 1.

4 Buried Alive Buried Alive

The beginning has a Led Zeppelin-esque feel to it, and then it slams into shredded
Megadeth-like riffs. I personally enjoyed the headbanging skeletons in the lyrics video.

it's not just best song of nightmare but one of best song of avenged sevenfold

starts out a beautiful slow song, than erupts into an amazing heavy song

To that guy who said it had the Led Zeppelin, Megadeth sound to it: No. This isn't any cheap knock off. This is Avenged Sevenfold. They are extremely original and creative (although they did rip a line off Guns N Roses in Doing Time). HTTK was one of their weaker albums. Anyway, back to Buried Alive. I believe this song should be up there to #1 or 2. Nightmare is overrated, So Far Away, though the message is heartfelt and a hard song to diss, it too, is sadly overrated. Welcome to the Family can sit down for a second. Yes, that is an amazing song, but Buried Alive is even better. Nightmare is the best Album by the way, it's the most meaningful. Now don't hate on me because I've been cutting those top songs down to size, A7X is my favorite band, and always will be, and I love every single one of their songs very greatly, they don't have a bad song. However, some songs are better than others. My expectations are just high. ✌ from my other device


Love you ...more

5 Welcome to the Family Welcome to the Family

The lyrics are awesome and the guitar makes me want to smash everything in my room and punch holes in the wall.

This song seems to be extremely underrated. The drums in the intro, the riffs, the solos, lyrics... This is a masterpiece that doesn't get the credit it really deserves. - ThatStrangeKid42

Best metal song ever, kick-ass guitar riff, great vocal and mind-blowing drums intro.
What else can I say? Just vote for it.

Amazing song. Should be #3 or #2.

6 God Hates Us God Hates Us

Please listen to this song more carefully this song is not for the little kids. If you like this song you can create a song

Just close your eyes and hate anyone that hurts you and then listen to this song. He said he hates us all

He sounds like Phil Anselmo and Corey Tylor mixed I don't really like shadows screaming in waking the fallen but his vocals are unreal in this track and no question his best performance - Jgb0125

7 Fiction Fiction

This is one of the best Avenged Sevenfold song, the rev once again proved that he was the greatest personality on earth by writing the beautiful lyric's for this song and the feel in this song is just awesome, R.I. P James Owen Sullivan. :(

While I think the album is so awesome that it is entirely impossible to even pick a favorite song from it (it changes day to day for me), well today this is it- it is one of the best for sure on the album, it so emotional. And it is #10? - cowboyskid2

Most people will find this song annoying at first but after a few listens you start to feel this having a goodbye letter from the rev. Absolutely a beautiful song, they have played this song twice live and both times I had goosebumps. One of the best songs Rev has ever written hands down

Definitely Fiction, but Save Me is number two.

8 Natural Born Killer Natural Born Killer

LOVE THIS SONG so MUCH! M. Shadows is absolutely amazing. I consider this song as one of their best songs but still it could be even greater if it contained Matt's lovely screams.

has a very fast intro, solid verses, a beautiful chorus, and a catchy beat. all these things make natural born killer one of their bests

I love the the riff that the song has and the solo is amazing

Should be way higher, such a good song, and the solo is so good too. Definitely one of their best.

9 Victim Victim

This song is slightly different from some of their other stuff, but if you really took the time to listen to it you'd find out how great the lyrics and tune are.

such a beautiful and underrated song. why doesn't anyone like this song?? very touching lyrics.

At first I heard this songs, I thought I was wrong named song cause the first vocal is isn't matt or zacky or syn's vocal

The part in between the Solos just leaves you with no words.. the music and the lyrics perfect mix.. Love It.

10 Danger Line Danger Line

It begins cool, continues great and finishes epic. After the second chorus, as it has been said before, the song gets amazing. The piano part is awesome and ends with one of the most emotional A7x solos. One of their best songs, not only in the album, overall.

The part after the second chorus is easily the best part in the album, and has the best secundary voices of all Avenged Sevenfold, that, plus a piano breakdown makes this a masterpiece.

Great chorus, shredding guitar, cool beat, emotional ending. just kicks ass overall, great tribute to the troops

The bridge to this song is the best moment on the entire album. The part where the drums get into the d-beat is fantastic. Once the trumpet kicks in, it's ok... but just before the trumpet is really good. Listen for it again. You'll know exactly what I'm talking about!

The Contenders

11 Tonight the World Dies Tonight the World Dies

Every album has it; the underrated song that no one knows about. But I must say that this is Shadow's greatest vocal performance he's ever done.

Why on earth is this almost in last. The vocals in the song can't be beat by any other on this album. This song is my 3rd favorite on the album and I'm very disappointed to see a bunch of freaks underrate this amazing song so much

This song is so touching on so many levels. - MetalDisciple

Amazing song

Best song on Nightmare followed by Buried Alive

14 Desecrate Through Reverence

Not sure who had the big idea to put this here. Probably the same person who put Nightmare at #1

This is on walken the fallen but still an epic song
