One of the most incredible bands to come out of the punk scene in 1991. After a short break up to pursue college careers, the band reunited and put off plans for college for good. Today they are an incredibly successful rock band with a solid and faithful fanbase.
The current line up of AFI is
Many accuse AFI of selling out
to the big label (Dreamworks and now Interscope) to become more successful, but few ever stop to think if the music has really changed and only asscoiate getting more money to, "sucking". The band has yet to have dramatic changes, but the fan base has most certainly changed from before.
A plethora of "scene
" people or "music elitists" would accuse AFI for being a poser
band and say that they "suck" and they've listened to sucky bands before. However, most of the people who have accused AFI of being a poser band haven't even listened to AFI before and only rely on the words of mainstream post STS fans.
1. A.F.I. is truly an amazing band, composed of poetic lyrics and talent.
2. Indie rocker: Ew, AFI are such a stupid band. Why not listen to bands that actually sound like music? Like, trulymadlydeeplysoulsthatring?
Normal AFI fan: I dare you to say that five times fast!
3. Music elitist: AFI are so passe, I stopped listening to them when I found Sublime
and Op. Ivy. Only fourteen year old girls listen to AFI.
AFI fan: And I'm sure that plenty more listen to Sublime you bland overly opinionated starbucks coffee drinking music snarking elitist
4. Most people who don't listen to AFI, don't bother listening to them because preppy
girls listen to them, therefore making these pathetic haters, stupid. Why, you ask? Because they're basing their opinions on an artist on thirteen year old preppy girls. Instantly making these snide haters, tools because, really, who the frick gives a flying @!&#!* about what a preteen prep has to say?
