Noughtie: Best of 2007 (Mixtape)

Welcome to Part 16 of the Noughtie series. This is the eighth Mixtape, celebrating the year of 2007 in rock and metal. 2007 marked a turn in music officially in my eyes. Emo music was really at the centre of everything, and finding good bands was starting to get difficult. The last three years of the decade were the worst three, in my opinion, but there was still some good stuff coming out. As usual, here's the rules of the Mixtape.
A Mixtape is a playlist of a certain genre, band or era. The list is generally 80 minutes long, the same length of a blank CD, with further recommendations if some of the songs aren't to your taste. Remember kids, downloading is wrong!
So what songs do I like from 2007? Let's find out shall we!
    1. I'm Not Jesus - Apocalyptica
    2. Walk - Avenged Sevenfold
    3. Capital G - Nine Inch Nails
    4. This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race - Fall Out Boy
    5. Keep Your Hands Off My Girl - Good Charlotte
    6. On Call - Kings of Leon
