Avenged Sevenfold

A band which originated from Orange County, CA. As of now they have a bare able tone to the music and just awful lyrics.However, the fans of the proclaimed, "best band ever," are extremely ignorant. Many claim to be tough but are actually full of hubris. If you don't know what hubris is you are most likely one of the 12 year old fans that the band has adapted.

Most people heard a song at the end of the popular game( even more popular than the band) Call of Dudy: Black ops 2. So that is where the 12 year old fans come from.
Ignorant fan:" hey reject, you should check out avenged sevenfold"

Me:"oh you know, I would but, I would rather not have meaningless, mumbling, lyrics yelled at me through my headphones"

A piece of crap band that claims they are "metal". They dress like fags, play faggot music, the singer sings like a girl, and their 12 year old fans think they're all hard and tough wearing their "Avenged Faggotfold" t-shirts.
"Hey man, you should check out Avenged Sevenfold, they fuckin' rule!"

"No, they suck!"

The Metallica of the 21st century, amazing vocals, guitarist actually have talent, and the drums are heart stopping.

Vocals - M. Shadows
Guitar - Synyster Gates
Guitar - Zacky Vengeance
Bass - Johnny Christ
Drums - The Rev

They have recorded 3 full length albums, Waking The Fallen being my personal fave.
Me: Avenged Sevenfold is the greatest band of this era! Long live A7X!

Mindless person who knows nothing about music: A7X sucks, I'm gonna go listen to some Hilary Duff, Lindsay Lohan, and Ashley Simpson, now that's rock n' roll, hyuck!
