4. Avenged Sevenfold – Dear God
Touring isn’t all fun and games, y’know. Well, it is, but when you’re in a band as big as Avenged Sevenfold, traveling across the globe for months – years, even – on end, missing home and crossing ‘another cold state line’ on a tour bus, things can get a bit much. Dear God, the closing track on A7X’s 2007 ‘White Album’, features M. Shadows crooning, ‘Dear God, the only thing I ask of you, is to hold her when I’m not around…’, as he missed his loved ones back home. We’re not crying – we just have something in both of our eyes.
