"Seize the Day" is a song by Avenged Sevenfold, the song is released as the fourth single from their third album City of Evil. "Seize the Day" has been released on July 27, 2010 as a downloadable track in Rock Band 2 along with "Nightmare" and "Scream".
The video depicts a couple in love and expecting a child. Matt's friends (the rest of Avenged Sevenfold) come to his house to make plans to rob a liquor store. In the process, Matt gets caught by the police while the others drive off, leaving him behind. Matt goes to jail, where after Matt's girlfriend comes to visit him. They get into a fight; while driving home his girlfriend is hit by a van. A funeral scene follows, and her casket is lowered into the ground; Synyster Gates is shown playing the song's guitar solo on top of her casket. At the end of the video, Matt is at her grave, with their son, who had survived the crash, and is also standing over her grave when the rest of the band come over to him. Matt picks up his son, and they all walk away. The video tells a story, similar to the Guns N' Roses' video 'November Rain'. M. Shadows said, "It's not us driving around in cool cars and just chilling, you know? It has a story and Guns N' Roses did those videos the best. It wasn't about looking cool and being flashy, it was about being real and showing the scenario and being true to the video." They also made a remake of the video from the band Anderson's song Trial and Temptation, where they go and rob the store. The girl in the video is Matt's wife in real life.
