An incredibly versitile band. Some people think that they "sold out" with their last album, Decemberunderground, but they were merely progressing in their music.

Their sound cannot be defined to one "scene".

Unfortunately, many people write them off because they have changed their musical style and developed over the years, or because people think they don't act or look like some say they 'should'. These people are truly missing out on a wonderful musical experience.
AFI? That band that's been around for like...fifteen years? They're still going strong? ((listens)) Dude! They're still awesome!

an amazing band that unfortunately as of late has acquired a bunch of posers who try to call themselves fans, after probably only listening to the songs "miss murder" and "the missing frame", having only bought the album decemberunderground to hear those songs and having never heard any of their other albums. chances are those people probably also listen to fall out boy *shudders* go listen to black sails in the sunset! or will it be too much for you lil poser minds??? their shirts have been spotted on preps. AAAAH, don't befoul the name of afi by wearing it on your body NOOOOOOOOO! *dies* davey is a genius. the end : D
wannabe poser-punk prep: like OMG i sooo love afi!
me: i shall consume your soul you worthless piece of shit

A Fire Inside. Band made of Davey Havok, Jade Puget, Adam Carson, and Hunter. Many people classify this band as emo, when it really does not fit into any one genre. How can they be emo if they formed before 'emo' was a word? People hate it because their style changed. Well, guess what? No band's style is going to stay the same forever. It's called development. So just go with it and learn to enjoy different types of music, or shut up and leave everyone else alone. No one cares if you don't like the band.
Davey Havok is the vocalist in the band AFI, and Jade Puget is the guitarrist.
A Fire Inside. Band founded in 1991. As of 2007, composed of Adam Carson, Hunter Burgan, Jade Puget, and Davey Havok. So far, they have released seven albums, and have grown into a more mature sound. The band has a "fan club" called the Despair Faction and has a large following due to their incredible stage presence, music, lifestyle choices, and aesthetics.
Says Jade Puget of AFI, "We've given up on trying to convince people we are or aren't any certain thing."

AFI is the best punk/goth band ever!!!! They have the most original sound of all time. Because of their newer songs, they are classified as emo. This is only because those people are ignorant and have never heard any of their other albums. You are not a true fan of AFI if you think Decemberunderground is their first album. You're just a douche-bag poser.
Douche-bag Poser:OMG, did you hear that new band!
True Fan:Which one?
Douche-bag Poser:AFI. OMG, Love Like winter is like the best song ever!!!!
True Fan:You stupid piece of shit, AFI is not a new band! AFI started in 1991. Get out of my face you freakin wannabe. Go to by your sixty dollar shirts at abercrombie and fitch with your fall out boy cd and go fuck yourself!

Hey, Miss Murder can I Hey, Miss Murder can I Make beauty stay if I Take my life?

With just a look they shook, And heavens bowed before him. Simply a look can break your heart.

The stars that pierced the sky He left them all behind We're left to wonder why He left us all behind

Hey, Miss Murder can I Hey, Miss Murder can I Make beauty stay if I Take my life?

Dreams of his crash won't pass Or how they all adored him Beauty will last when spiraled down

The stars that mystify He left them all behind And now his children cry He left us all behind

Hey, Miss Murder can I Hey, Miss Murder can I Make beauty stay if I Take my life?

What's the rift that twists within this furthest mystery? I would gladly bet my life upon it At the cost of love your ray of light will fizzle out Without hope When the empty sand just flowing through our empty skin Ever searching for what we were promised Reaching for the cold and rain we never let go They won't ever let us lay our filthy hands upon it

Hey, Miss Murder can I Hey, Miss Murder can I Make beauty stay if I Take my life?

Hey, Miss Murder can I Hey, Miss Murder can I Make beauty stay if I Take my life?
