Do you like penis in your butt? Their music is a rip-off, I don't think I've heard a single original riff in what they play (not that I ever listened much to them), and don't even get me started on their names or clothes. I love "Synyster's" guitar lessons though, it's hilarious to see how he fails at guitar.

They suck...I'd rather listen to My Chemical Romance than them and we all know how much MCR suck, and yes, they do have silly names

yeah im not really into all this dress up in black and wearing eye shadowy stuff or whatever it is... but i liked them before everyone knew about them and then my friend found out about them and all he does is listen to them and dress up in his skinny black pants with his black shirt and wear mascara or whatever it is....... so he kinda ruined it for me

I despise them and wish them any death from the Worst movie deaths thread. I also hate this totally unnecessary thread.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

Love 'em. City of Evil is genius. The movie-soundtrack-like score at the beginning of "Strength of the World"; the spanish acoustic guitar outro of "Sidewinder." it's prog.

So you don't like them because they're popular..? Lamest excuse ever.

I love them, actually.

And seriously guys, stop bashing them, especially if you've only heard like 3 songs.
Apart from that, what use is there?
I don't post "z0mg I'm an immature metalhead **** and Green Day ****ing suck lololol" in every other thread?

Get a life, guys. Stop dissing music, any type of it.

Besides, wasn't Stevie Ray Vaughan just an emo in a new key?

Yes, it's where metal bands can be discussed...t00l...

My personal reason for hating Avenged Sevenfold isn't even that "Synyster Gates" sucks at guitar or that their music is a recycled rip off of what was done before, nor the fact that I just plain can't stand them. There are plenty other bands that are worse in every aspect.

The reason is very simple - they are a great example of how f*cked up the current music scene and culture is, that's all. I don't have a problem with Avenged Sevenfold - but I do have a problem with all the credit they get for being so great and being so awesome - because there's thousands bands out there that are so much more talented than them yet they are stuck in oblivion simply because they don't get enough promotion or because the powers that be decided they wouldn't be able to make as much money off selling them.

Or something along these lines, anyway.

And A7X are metal, at least their first to albums. Just like Good Charlotte is punk.
You might think it's crappy metal, fine, but metal nonetheless.

how dare you insult him like that.

Stevie didn't blow ass at guitar, wear makeup or have a shitty fake name.

I have 3 friends who were gonna see an A7X show on the tour that they cancelled; When they found out it was cancelled, two of them actually cried, and the other wouldn't speak to me for a week.

A7X isn't bad. Not wonderful, but not bad. They have some good songs. However, I agree with most other people here in saying that the band members' names sound like seven-year-olds' attempts at sounding cool.

I heard 2 songs by them. I liked neither, it may be a little unfair to judge by two songs, but for me, it's enough to vote "Nooo!" in this poll.

I like them before City of Evil. That cd (and the press garnered from it) ruined them for me.

A7X aren't really metal to me anymore.I know that Matt Shadows can't scream anymore(becoz of the surgery) but his singing is poor(well to me anyway) he always hits bum notes when he sings live and most of the old material that is high pitched like Unholy Confessions sounds so stupid without screaming.City of evil is poor its just a rip off of metallica,iron maiden,guns n roses and pantera etc.They've also changed their look aswell becoz they've changed their music and are a bunch of posers.Sounding The Seventh trumpet & waking the fallen r lethal albums though but unless shadows can improve his singing and write better lyrics than the city of evil they'll b sellouts.


Exactly. Shadow's lack of screaming really irritated me. I know he can't, but still. That didn't constitute the drastic change in sound they had.
