Zacky Vengeance (Avenged Sevenfold)
I would say that my all-time favorite song, without a doubt, would be the song “Would?” from Alice In Chains. I feel like it captures a darkness, a sadness, an angst. The strength in [Layne Staley’s] vocal performance — you can really hear just pure anguish and pure humanity from a guy who’s trying to do the best he can and trying to dig himself out of a hole, but has fallen into a dark spot, yet still managed to write this eerie, haunting, beautiful, powerful song. I think Alice In Chains’ “Would?” is the ultimate masterpiece of a song.
