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!"

what every 12-16 year old listens to to be cool cause all of their friends listen to it when really its just the drummer having a seizure while the guitarist tunes to drop d and hits the 6-4th strings over and over again while the bassist takes a nap and the singer screams at the top of his puny emo lungs without even bothering to put out any words of any sort.

kids usually only listen to bands such as this due to their friends' poor taste in music while if they actually tried to think freely they would most likely enjoy actual metal bands such as obituary, morbid angel, november's doom, pestilence, death, cannibal corpse (1980's-90's), and others.
guy listening to avenged sevenfold alone: Wtf is this shit?!

kid listening to a7x with all his a7x friends in all their a7x hot topic gear: hey this is totally core dude!

I. - (Aven-ged' Seven-fold; noun) A terrific band that receives very "little" praise from the rock fanbase. They are--with a doubt--metal/rock. Such songs, like Desecrate Through Reverence, or Clairvoyant Disease (their best songs), are considered to be metal.

II. - (Aven-ged' Seven-fold; noun) An amazing band with unique guitar riffs. They are among the few rockbands nowadays that 'actually' know the definition of intense. The vast majority of their songs have quite a bit of originality and taste.

III. (Aven-ged' Seven-fold; noun) Term for a childhood prodigy, whose talents and efforts are vaguely summarized as good.
I and II. - Jared Boucher: Hey, Jim... Have you ever heard of Avenged Sevenfold before?

Jim: I may have. Are they any good?

Jared Boucher: You bet.

III. - I hate that Avenged Sevenfold. He's not eeeeeveeeeeen gOoodz! Mhhhher! Nothing compares to Slipknot.

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!

An awesome band who just released a self-titled album and are going to be on the Rockstar Taste Of Chaos 2008 tour!!! You can also call them A7X
This is how Avenged Sevenfold got A7X...

M. Shadows(lead singer): Hey I got it! A is avenged, Seven is 7 and X is fold!
