"A Fire Inside" is a great band that has changed their musical style over the years; their music fits into many different genres. Their first three CDs are "Answer That And Stay Fashionable," "Very Proud of Ya," and "Shut Your Mouth and Open Your Eyes." These CDs are obviously punk rock; the best one of these three is "Answer That And Stay Fashionable." Their next CD is "Black Sails In The Sunset," which mixes melodic metal and punk rock. It is undeniably their best CD. Their next two CDs are "The Art of Drowning," and "Sing The Sorrow," and they combine many new elements to their music that makes it hard to put them into a particular genre. Some of AFI's worst songs are on these two CDs, but there are a few (about 7 or 8) really good songs that are worth listening to.
AFI is a really good band; you should go listen to "Black Sails In the Sunset" before calling them some crappy emo band.

Originally a punk band started in 1991 in California by Mark Stopholese, Vic Chalker and Davey Havok. Their message was largely associated with punk, hardcore, and straight edge kids. A.F.I. means A Fire Inside. They started in high school and released a bunch of EP's then split to go to college. After getting back together they released their first album called "Answer that and Stay Fashionable" in 1995 on Wingnut records. This was an amazing album. They signed to Nitro records and released other awesome albums like "Very Proud of Ya" (1996), and "Shut your Mouth and Open Your Eyes" (1997).
A.F.I. started adding more gothic influences to their punk music after the "A Fire Inside EP" (1998) Adeline Records. This includes "Black Sails in the Sunset" (1999 Nitro), "All Hallow's EP" (1999 Nitro), and "The Art of Drowning" (2000 Nitro) which gained more mainstream success then any other.
In 2002 AFI sold their souls to Dreamwork Records and MTV, releasing Sing The Sorrow(2003) and DecemberUnderground (2006 Interscope Records). Their music, look, and message went through an extreme change. They are well known by the mainstream and have a huge nazi-like new fanbase that knows little of the old punk band or scene. The new fans often think just because someone doesn't like AFI means they have never heard their music. Their music is now more heavy rock, new-wave emo, pop-punk sounding with a touch of flamboyantness. Some would even say AFI were kidnapped, murdered, and had their identities stolen by a group of giggling gay boys in eyeshadow who now pose as being "A.F.I.".
New AFI fan: I LOVE A.F.I. AND DAVEY HAVOK THEY ARE MY LIFE!
Old AFI fan: Davey Havok is gay and had a sex change.
New AFI fan: Well.. I STILL LOVE AFI, ALL THEIR ALBUMS ARE AMAZINGZ@!
Old AFI fan: Have you even heard anything by AFI before they left Nitro records?
New AFI fan: No, what other albums? OMGOMG MTV IS SHOWING THE RERUN OF AFI'S MUSIC VIDEO IN 5 MINUTES! BYE!

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."

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!
