1) A rock band that originally formed in 1991, has become more well known after releasing their "Sing The Sorrow" CD. Much of their music is calming, and deeply poetic. The other half sounds more punk.
Because of this many people see them as an emo band, now based on a couple songs that they heard on the radio. AFI isn't exactly punk, and it isn't emo.
It's just... AFI. Who cares what scene they belong to? They have a unique touch and if you're into stuff with meaning than it'd be worth your time to try AFI.
AFI stands for "A Fire Inside."
2) People hate AFI and sometimes refer to it as "emo," it attempts to look hardcore and cool.
1) AFI rocks. Have you heard their song Morningstar?
2) "Lol I hate AFI. HATING A BAND MAKES ME SO COOL. I hate you emos. Hahahaha." Really the people that pretend to hate bands are the most emo of all. XD
