Drummer for shit-metal band Avenged Sevenfold. Possesses some drumming skill, but that skill is greatly diminished by one of the gayest haircuts in heavy metal history.
Dude #1: Man, their drummer's pretty good, but he has to get rid of that haircut...

Dude#2: I agree, his head looks like a three-headed dildo... kind of like The Rev...

Extremely excited, ecstatic, stoked, treed, pumped, psyched, jazzed, amped, hyped, wired.

Used by California car club members, skateboard brats, surfer dudes, and Silicon Valley billionaires. Also has roots in software updates, or version "revisions."
I am so revved by the new Green Day disc.

James 'The Rev' Sullivan was the drummer for Avenged Sevenfold until his tragic death on December 28, 2009. The Rev wrote the lyrics to most of their songs and was one of the most kick-ass drummers to ever walk the face of the earth. He was a fan of Mike Portnoy from Dream Theater, who is now helping A7X to get back on their feet. 3 days before his death, he came to the band after finishing the lyrics to 'Fiction' and said, "That's it. That's the final song on the album." Their new album 'Nightmare' has many references to Jimmy, like the lines;
'Never in question, lethal injection'
'Details blurry, lost him too early'
'I see, you're a king who's been dethroned'
'Cast out, in a world you've never known'
from 'Welcome To The Family'.
R.I.P. The Rev, foREVer in our hearts, never forgotten. Best Rev quote:
"One day, I'm gonna jump off the bus, and run into the woods, and never come out! And when I do, I'm gonna be the knife master."
We'll miss you Jimmy! Teach God how to play those drums!
