No. 20: Avenged Sevenfold, ‘Bat Country’ – Top 21st Century Hard Rock Songs

Avenged Sevenfold, 'Bat Country'

“We can’t stop here. This is bat country!” With those classic words from Hunter S. Thompson, Avenged Sevenfold took inspiration from ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas’ and turned it into one of their most notable songs.

As the second single from their 2005 album, ‘City of Evil,’ this track helped bring mainstream attention to the hard rock band. With the help of ‘Bat Country,’ Avenged’s third album went platinum in the U.S.
